Crazy, weird and wonderful Thailand

The Story: Delicious food and beautiful ladyboys in the Kingdom of Thailand

Depending on what type of person you are, you might know Thailand for its beautiful Buddhist temples, its tasty food, ladyboys, ping-pong shows, or just its happy, humble people. And it’s true, Thailand has all these things and more.

In this episode, Kurt explains a traveller’s perspective on Thailand, the pad thai and basil stir-fries, the gorgeous and prolific sex workers, the ubiquitous transgender women, and the Thai people’s love for the late king, his majesty Rama IX. Kurt also talks about south east Asians fascination with sugary drinks, and some tips on how to spot a shill.

Worldschooling with Andrea and Lean – Episode 175

The Story: Learning about the world by travelling through it

Many modern schools are modelled after a military model – stand in a muster, follow instructions, respond to the bells. A student who doesn’t feel like being militarised – which is probably most of them – can be seen as a “problem child”, but for people who celebrate creativity, independent thought, and self-expression, that child is seen as a genuine free spirit.

People are starting to realise that these outdated systems don’t serve us or the children any longer, and they’re looking for alternatives, such as “worldschooling”, taking their kids on a family gap year to explore and find ways to learn and socialise in the real world. Some decide to never go home again.

In this episode, Kurt interviews Andrea and Lean, a mother and son who are worldschoolers and have been travelling the Maldives, India, Sri Lanka and Malaysia for five months, discovering new aspects of themselves, learning English, and facing the challenges that come with it. Join us on another globe-trotting episode of… The Paradise Paradox!
