For the 2nd time in my life a 2 week holiday has led to a significant change of plans! The first time I was on a 2 week holiday in Thailand (from NZ) and got a job at the Embassy and I stayed 2 years… this time I have managed to find a great job which will enable me to work from ‘home’ (well, Dads home), I will get to go to China and I will earn a salary!
The new job is doing similar stuff to what I was doing in NZ, I will be analysising a new system for a manufacturing company in China, doing some development of the system and then seeing it though to implementation. I have committed to 6 months at this stage but if it works out and I enjoy it I might do this for quite a bit longer and flag the teaching in South Korea idea.
So… the new plan is now:
- Go back up north for 1 week to finish up at the school
- My friend Albert will visit from Belgium – so I will have a 2 week holiday with him at the beach
- After Albert goes, I will start working full time in my new job!
