Sam's Journey to Mexico

Current Location

Chetumal Quintana Roo

Hi! My name is Sam, and I am spending nine months in Chetumal, Mexico teaching English at a local university called the UQROO. I am excited to share my experiences and travels with all of you!


Hola (Hello)! I am in Huatulco, Oaxaca, where I am spending the week with the 53 other Fulbright ETAs for our midterm reunion. We are discussing our unique experiences with each other and exploring!


The ability to travel has changed my life for the better in so many ways! If you have the opportunity, I encourage you all to get out of your comfort zones and travel the world!

Field Notes

Consuming water in Mexico is a little more difficult than in the United States. We must always drink from bottled water in order to avoid getting sick!


Here are some images from my daily life in Chetumal. Living here, I mainly teach at the UQROO, hang out with my friends and learn as much about the local culture as possible!
