I've noticed that things are rapidly changing in the Se Asian countries regarding teaching english.

In addition, we would like to explore and travel the world. ...

I am married to a Vietnamese woman and we have 2 children. I built a house in Vietnam as security for her and the children's future but as foreigners could not own land in Vietnam a few years ago it is all in her name. Of course she has never worked so I paid for everything 100%. I brought her to Australia 18 months ago, she got her residency and has now left me and taken the children.
