About Monkey Abroad

My name is Kevin Cook, but I go by the name Monkey Abroad on my blog. I graduated from Kansas University with a degree in journalism back in May 2011, and for nearly two years, I found myself stuck in unfulfilling jobs. But then, I decided to take a leap of faith and pursue my dream of living overseas.

In April 2013, I began my adventure by moving to the northern mountains of Thailand, where I taught English as a Second Language (ESL). This experience opened up my eyes to a whole new world of culture, cuisine, and perspective. I found myself fascinated by the intricacies of the Thai language and the warmth and hospitality of the people I met.

Through my blog, Monkey Abroad, I aim to share my experiences and inspire others to embark on their own journeys abroad. I offer advice on everything from teaching ESL to navigating cultural differences, and I share stories of the incredible people and places I’ve encountered on my travels.

But it’s not all serious business on Monkey Abroad. I also love to inject a bit of humor and levity into my content, often creating ridiculous videos and sharing funny anecdotes from my time abroad. Whether you’re an expat, a traveler, or simply someone interested in learning more about different cultures, I hope you’ll find something valuable and entertaining on my blog.

So, welcome to Monkey Abroad! Get ready to expand your horizons and embrace new experiences.
