About @john7buck

47 years old • Male • English Teacher

When I was 7 my parents moved my family to an island in Micronesia for a year, which was of the "remote" variety. Little did I know at the time that this would cause a crack-like addicition to travel later in life.

In 2003-04, I spent a year traveling (6 months living, working and skiing in NZ) Tahiti-Cook Islands-Fiji-New Zealand-Australia-Argentina-Chile-Uruguay-Brazil and Panama. In 2005 I returned to South America to visit Peru and Bolivia.

The fall of 2006, took me to Southeast Asia, focusing on Malaysian Borneo and Myanmar.

I recently completed two years of teaching English in South Korea. During my time thus far, I also traveled to Japan and China and recently spent 6 weeks trekking in Nepal. In February, 2010 I signed on for another year of teaching (my third) in Korea.
