Blogs of international school teachers: “Living in Laymans’ Terms” (An international school teacher at American International School of Kuwait)
February 9, 2014
Are you inspired to start up a blog about your adventures living abroad?
Our 35th blog that we would like to highlight is called “Living in Laymans’ Terms” Check out the blog entries of this international school educator who currently works at American International School of Kuwait (29 Total Comments on our website) in Hawalli.
A few entries that we would like to highlight:
“Last time I wrote about how nice the weather was. That was after it rained. I don’t think I did a good job of sharing how crazy the rain was. Now it’s cold (it’s been in the high 30s and low 40s a couple mornings when I’ve gone running!)…”
It is all about perspective when living in a different country. What one person thinks is cold, another person might think it is not THAT cold!
It is good to know that in the Middle East, the weather can get a bit chilly in the winter. Many people might just think it is hot all year round.
Luckily, we have a comment topic in the City Information section of all school profile pages that is about weather. It is called – “Describe the city’s weather at different times of the year.” We currently have 140 separate comments (about a number of international schools) in that comment topic on our website.
“One of the deals we are giving our 5 siblings is a trip (once) to visit us. Abby is here for the semester subbing and Andrew came to visit for his Spring Break! Shannon was studying abroad in Barcelona so they met up in Kuwait. It was a memorable week for all! (see Shannon’s post for proof)
There was a little miscommunication ..Shannon arrived on Friday, March 22nd and Andrew arrived 24 hours later. Luckily we like Shannon so it worked out just fine…”
What a great idea!
I always say…if you got a friend or family member living abroad somewhere, it would be a SHAME not to go visit them and that country!
Not all family members are able though to have the free time to go on a trip to visit you. Many also are not able to afford it either. So, how nice to pay for their trip for them! (that is if they can get the time off of work to come visit you.)
