I moved to a new site! You can find all of my new blog posts, travel tips, random thoughts, teaching stories, and travel adventures on www.mypleasedpassport.com
I’m excited to announce this move as I’ve worked very hard on my new site. The layout and design are much easier to understand and it will include more than just my time in Thailand. I will have past stories from my trips to other places around the world and the future adventures that await.
If you are currently subscribed via email to this blog, you will not be transferred over to the new site. Please re-subscribe on my new site to stay connected to my life abroad. This website (kaytadamson.wordpress.com) will be turned to private in 2 weeks time.
I appreciate everyone’s support with the beginning stages of my blogging. I can’t wait to see what else I can accomplish in this atmosphere of great writers! Thank you!

It was my first week teaching at a new school and my kids are CRAZY! They have so much energy, so much excitement, and their eagerness to learn is adorable.

My last two days in Hua Hin have been nothing short of insane! A mix of good and bad insane. Our group was hosting an English Language Camp at a local school for two days – Thursday and Friday. This school does not have a western English teacher; however, they have thai teachers teaching English classes. Pronunciation is not perfect, so our entire job was to focus on pronunciation… oh and classroom management. These children are WILD!
