This is the first and last time I will train for 6 months to run a half marathon! It was very rewarding, but not my cup of tea!
I was able to go scuba diving in Nha Trang last year, it wasn't the most beautiful dive experience, but it sure was fun! We dove through some underwater caves and tunnels, saw several schools of fish, some very interesting macro life, and got to help clean the reef. Overall, great time making some bubbles!
I was so lucky to be able to have a graduation party right before the big lockdown hit! Benjamin Snitker is now a MAster of Science in Teaching and Learning!
It's great to have a constant companion in an animal, even a wild guy like Goose. Goose is my French bulldog and he is definitely a handful. I thought bulldogs were supposed to be calm!
For the term break I was able to go, with my girlfriend, to Lang Co. We played golf, relaxed by the beach and pool, and had a great break. I am looking forward to the next one!
Being able to see the Taj Mahal was one of the first times that I realized what an incredible opportunity I took in teaching abroad.
My dear friend Russell took this picture. He was my multi-pitch climbing partner whilst I was living in Chiang Mai, Thailand. My life was great there, but to move forward sometimes you have to go off-belay.
I'm trying out my professional photo shoot face. How does this one look? - Benjamin Lucas Snitker
For many years in Thailand Benjamin Lucas Snitker volunteered at the Ban Dek Dee Orphanage. Every other Wednesday, after a long day teaching primary years science at Prince Royal's College, he would go with a group, buy food to cook, make dinner, and teach an English lesson to the underserved orphans.
Building and floating Kratongs was a simple pleasure to unwind after a long week of teaching.
