Hello friends, family and whomever might have chanced across this blog.
This blog formerly known as Just Czeching In, which was formerly known as Eteri’s Supra, is now WanderLost (Starting to sound a bit like the artist formerly known as Prince).
The updated purpose of this blog is for me to share my adventures, stories, insights and anything I feel like sharing with the world (aka my family and friends) about my upcoming months in New Zealand. My boyfriend and I will be traveling the awe inspiring landscape of this country while finding work in whatever form it might take. Essentially I hope to become a Jack-of-all-trades while finding the Ent Wives in the Old Wood between watching the All Blacks haka the crap out of people.
A bit about blog posts from yesteryears.
The original title of this blog was Eteri’s Supra. It was a place for me to share my adventures in Georgia (the country) while I taught English, lived with a host family, and ate delicious Georgian food from August 2011- May 2012. The reason I chose to teach in Georgia is that my mother is Georgian and my grandparents were Georgian. I am half Georgian and I have always dreamed about spending a chunk of time in the “mother land”. I accomplished that and moved onto the “next step” (avoiding returning to the US and finding a “grown up” job).
The second title and grouping of posts was from my time teaching English in Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic. I was teaching (entertaining) 4 year olds all the way to adults in a position with WattsEnglish. I was not placed in a school. I was working in a franchise that sold English lessons to schools all around the Czech Regions. Also instead of living with a host family, I was living with another survivor of Teach and Learn with Georgia. (Thank Goodness!) This section of posts focuses on the differences between the two teaching positions, the difficulty of the new position, Czech culture and other various amusing times.
So, thanks for being a continuing follower and any new stumble-uponers are welcome and I hope you enjoy reading and take some time to peruse older posts. Enjoy!
