Hi, there! Thanks for stopping by. 



Hello! We're Amanda & Shawn. We are from the U.S. and just moved to Chiang Mai, Thailand in hopes of finding teaching positions. We've succeeded! You can now call us Teacher Shawn and Teacher Amanda. 

Amanda - I'm 22, from West Islip, New York in Long Island, and a recent graduate from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. I graduated in Advertising and Marketing Communications. My travel bug ignited after studying abroad in Paris last year, Spring 2015, where I traveled to 15 countries in Europe. My grand total is now 21! I love to meet new people, hear their stories and write about them. That's where my love for blogging began with my first blog Sunshine in the Cities. I love to hula hoop, drink tea and have picnics. 

Shawn - I'm 23 and just graduated from Binghamton University, with a Biology degree. I am originally from Malboro, New Jersey. I've always wanted to go to Asia even though I'm allergic to all the food. I have a love for animals, gardening and food science. I have my advanced open water scuba diving certification and enjoy eating tacos. I love listening to funky beats and going to music festivals.  My dream is for everyone to have gardens and grow their own food - oh and to meet the band Matt and Kim.
