Foreigner at Home #2

We further explore the idea of being a “Foreigner at Home” with Scott Underwood’s insights to living and teaching as an American in Thailand. Having backpacked and traveled for years, he was surprised to learn that calling a place home took more a bit more adjustment, but he soon found himself instep with a new pace of life. Click on the photo journal below to learn about what it’s like to live as a “Foreigner at Home” in Thailand!

  1. Hey!

    I’m going to Thailand in a month and I’m currently very busy with looking for places I need to visit. I really liked your pictures. Could you please give me some more information about what this ‘Foreigner at Home’ thing is? I’m very curious!

    • Hey Manisha! “Foreigner at Home” was the theme for this month’s call for submissions in the reader-based section of this website, Adventures in Aperture. The concept behind this month’s theme was to invite people who live as foreigners to share a photo journal about their experience living abroad with the Professional Nomads community. Therefore, the above photo journal was not written/photographed by me but by Scott Underwood, an American ProNo reader who lives and works in Thailand.

      Although I have been to Thailand and would be happy to offer advice, Scott’s experiences are far more intimate and informed than mine because he is living there, albeit as a “foreigner at home.”

      If you’d like to connect with Scott, shoot me an email at and I will forward it to him.

      Thanks for checking out Professional Nomads, and have an awesome trip to Thailand!
