About us



We are Matt and Ruth, sometimes known as Teacher Matt and Teacher Mon!


In March 2013 we visited Thailand for the first time to visit our friends and loved it. A little more than a year later we moved out here to live and work as teachers in Nakhon Sawan.


This blog is a little journal of our new life and adventures to come…







Matt gave up his suit and commute (and his portion of an Arsenal season ticket!) to become ‘Teacher Matt’.







In the UK, Ruth was a baker but she has hung up her apron to become an expert in cutting, sticking, drawing, singing and dancing (otherwise known as a kindergarten teacher).
