English abroadCraig is a 29 year-old, sun-loving, rum-drinking Floridian and Phuketan, and the face behind Vagabond Disposition. He has called the Land of Smiles his home for about 5 years on and off, coming and going between vagabonding journeys throughout East and Southeast Asia, as well as Western Mexico and Europe. He enjoys a competitive game of disc golf when he can find a course, as well as a laid-back match of Bocce with spirits in hand. Craig wouldn’t go anywhere without his beloved ukulele and will jump on a drum set any chance he gets. His odd sense of humor is fortunately often appreciated by his peers, as well as his students.

  1. OMG, I’m giggling at the cock part. Can’t help! 😛

    My roommate was a Thai and one time she made me a tom yam soup when I got sick, and she was like, “But Marya, when I put Meki, it became salty…”

    I couldn’t help but laugh because Meki in my mother tongue is a slang word for vagina, when it turned out she meant Maggi the seasoning brand. I indeed love Thai accent because of this. 😀

    • Hahaha that is too funny! 😂 Inconsistencies between languages have provided me more laughs than almost anything else in all my time abroad!
