Joanne's Journey to Thailand

Current Location

Surin, Thailand

Hi, I'm Joanne, and this fall I'm journeying from southeast Florida to southeast Asia in order to study in Thailand. Join me as I explore Thai culture, cuisine and current events!


This week, my classmates and I had the opportunity to visit Vientiane, the capital city of the country of Laos.


I live and take classes in the community surrounding Khon Kaen University, or KKU. The campus is so large that many restaurants and businesses surround it. This makes meeting new friends easy.

Field Notes

A few weeks ago, we had the amazing opportunity to visit an elephant homestay in Surin, Thailand! Come learn about elephants with me.


This past weekend, I took an independent trip to Bangkok, the capital of Thailand. Visiting art expos and events is one of my favorite pastimes, so I visited the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC).
