Who’s Behind Breaking La Barrier?
Hello, and welcome to my travel blog! I'm Anthony (or Wade), and I use Breaking La Barrier to share my travel stories, pictures, videos, and tips with people like you.
I graduated from the University of Kentucky in 2014 with a - wait for it - English degree. Trust me, I know what you're thinking, but I promise you, I did it for a reason. But that's another story.
For as long as I can remember, I wanted to travel the world. I was a slave to popular belief that said it was pretty much unrealistic unless you were rich. When I came across how popular teaching English abroad is these days, I knew it was my gateway.
I began this journey in January of 2016 when I left the US of A for a teaching job in Wuhan, China. And now here I am, traveling, the thing I once believed was impossible. Some crazy stuff, huh?
Yes, Breaking La Barrier is a travel blog. But it's not just about popular destinations and endless lists of sites and hotels. It's about discovering different cultures, trying to understand them, and adapting to them. There are just so many different countries and cultures in our world. Why in the world would we not want to explore them!
So please, join me, and let's break barriers together.
