Hello there and welcome to my author page where I'm supposed to tell you a little about myself. Firstly Neil King is my real name. What do I do? Well, currently I'm continuing an online working life. Less than three years ago I was a total computer dinosaur and knew very little and I still have lots to learn.
I have also worked online for clients who together have published over 200 of my articles. Which brings me to Ebooks and where I thought hang on a moment, why write for others? And so here I am starting another chapter of my life.
I have been visiting Thailand for almost ten years and have lived there well away from the tourist trail for the past three. While living the dream I worked for two years as an English teacher for a large rural Government school, incidentally the kids there taught me far more about Thailand than what I taught them English!
I enjoy helping people as I have been helped myself, which is one reason I suppose I lean towards writing non fiction and putting information together. Although watch out for some fiction based on fact as so many incidents and occurrences have happened to me on my travels.
I love to travel and spend time discovering new places and finding new things to do. I guess I got the travel bug from my time in the Army where I traveled quite literally all over the world. I went to some nice places but mostly not so nice places, you have to take the rough with the smooth I suppose. But on the whole I felt quite lucky about my travels. My list of other occupations over the years reads like a high school careers choice check list. Now I'm quite happy to focus on working from wherever for myself while deciding where to go to next.
TEFL in Thailand
My experiences teaching in Thailand and how I did it. If you are considering a total change or are just starting out on a teaching career and considering some travel while gaining valuable experience, in either case you are going to have some concerns.

You may possibly be a TEFL teacher working abroad and have thought what else can I do to earn a crust. Or what would you do if you lost your teaching job? That's exactly what happened to me and here is what I did and still do to this day.
I recently read on one travel site describing Pattaya as "fresh and clean". I reminded myself of this as I was reaching stage two of carbon-monoxide poisoning while walking along Second Road. Many a tourist has visited this City and been intoxicated by more than mere alcohol. Every single day can be an adventure and your evenings filled with excitement. They don't call it "Fun town" for nothing.
