Today’s Perfect Moment is a simple one. One of my coworkers is going to Vietnam and Cambodia in the upcoming months. He is very excited about it. He knows that I have visited both of those countries and really enjoyed both of them, so we have been talking about them. Vietnam still rates as one of my best trips and I never tire of talking about it. As for my co-worker, his enthusiasm is infectious.
Swapping travel tips and stories is an awesome way to spend lunch. Many of my coworkers are travelers. Most of us got into the ESL profession because it afforded the opportunity to travel and make a few dollars while doing it. Some have taken great advantage of it, while others have taken small advantage of it. Either way, we’ve all got stories of train journeys short and epic. We’ve all met weird and wonderful people in amazing and banal situations. We’ve all eaten something we shouldn’t have and we’ve eaten things we should have eaten more of. We’ve been on beaches, mountains, and islands. We’ve crossed lakes, rivers, mountains, and borders. We’ve gotten lost and we’ve been found. We also want to regale you with all of it.
Of course, better than talking about traveling is traveling itself. My journey is fast approaching and I still have to get ready.
