The landscapes, culture, towns and cities, and even the language vary across its 9.98 million square kilometres (3.85 million square miles). And that’s before we get to the dramatic difference between visiting in summer and winter.

As we drove on the long driveway, bounded by deep mounds of snow, leading into Colorado’s Vista Verde Ranch, I admired the pristine beauty of the dude ranch’s spectacular location, approximately 25 miles north of Steamboat Springs.

Maybe we have patterns of behavior that involve abandoning ourselves in times of stress. Perhaps our responses to love are still subject to the family programming we received as children. Or maybe our lives have been adversely impacted by a materialistic society steeped in straight, white, cis male supremacy. Whatever the case, nobody is beyond the power of redemption or outside the reach of kindness.

Hi! We’re Rich and Kate. Three years ago, we decided to leave our cosy, normal lives back in the UK to go and find something different. That ‘different’ was a new life as teachers in South East Asia. After some time, we decided that we would like to share some of our experiences with anyone who had similar interests to us, and so, the twotravellingteflers adventure was born. We offer a tiny look into our lives of travel, TEFL, and Thailand.
