I was thinking about going to the Peace Core after I graduated university (May 2008). However, because of the job was going to be teaching IT skills in an African country, I believe and my family telling me that it will be dumb (dangerous to them), I decided to do a normal job as programmer.

You have experience a degree in English and Education so I think you can try to look for work in South Korea possibly and fly to Thailand when you have free time. You make the most money there and it would not be bad for you.

I am currently in Europe but I say that east European or German women have been the best for me. I have not had luck with Austrian women and most guys feel the same way (sad but true).

There is a guy I knew in my senior year of university and he has a blog about his time in the peace core. I think he was in many countries for about 2 years as you said. He is now in Washington DC (sad). However, I believe your understanding of the world will be different.

Here is his blog:

I suggest you buy the book "So, You Want to Join the Peace Corps...What to know before you go" by Dillon Banerjee on Amazon. It's a good resource to anyone wanting to join the Peace Corps. It also has advice on dating while on the Peace Corps, the social scene, advice on what to bring with you on your trip, description of the training you will receive while overseas, and the rules and regulations regarding your service with the Peace Corps.

my friends who were lucky enough to get in jokingly called it "the best job youll never get"
marriage is a 3 ring circus: engagement ring, wedding ring and then suffering.
