Today’s Sunday Snapshot comes from Jessica J. Hill, who has been traveling around Asia, one classroom at a time. She’s been lucky enough to teach all levels over the last 18 months – from preschool through high school in Thailand, and university in China. She now operates a TEFL certification and job recruitment agency Teach English ESL. To keep her from running back across the globe herself, she writes about her experiences with teaching English abroad and cultural, immersion and adventure travel on her website, MissAdventureTravel.com. You can also connect with her on Facebook,Twitter, Pinterest and Google+.
“The Maha Kumbh Mela – what the Guinness World Records deems the largest religious gathering in the world – occurs once every 12 years, and I happened to be traveling through Northern India when I heard about it for the first time. I quickly changed my plans, ‘hitched’ a ride in an over-packed, first-class train sitting next to a sadhu, and finally arrived in Allahabad for the 2013 event. Two friends and I made our way through the somehow organized masses of millions of people, and begged another sadhu to let us sleep in his tent for the next three nights. Our lack of a plan worked. We were in, and it’s possible the experience singlehandedly changed my mind about India. I fell in love. Read more here.”
