Chris Binstead studied English at the University of Gloucestershire, U.K. mainly because it was interesting and he enjoyed it. After graduating he spent years in various jobs and travelling to various countries in search of other things he enjoyed and that interested him. Coming to the conclusion that it was culture and travel that interested him he studied for his Masters in International Development in South Africa where he started teaching because, among other reasons, he enjoyed it and found it rewarding. Fortunately he continued to enjoy his profession and it has continued to reward him by allowing him to indulge his interest in travel and love for teaching by working in South Korea, Ghana, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and China while along the way finding a wife (also a teacher) and dragging along two children wherever he goes.
