Living and Teaching in Togo

I received a job to teach French in Togo. I was very excited at the idea of living in Togo because I had never left France before, and Togo was an exciting ticket to adventure. I flew into Togo on an Air France ticket. The plane to Togo is small because not many people buy tickets to go there, so we got very good attention from the flight staff. When I landed I bought a bus ticket out to the town in Togo where I would be working. I met a lot of very nice people in Togo, and the students in Togo were very kind and attentive. My teaching trip to Togo was just the ticket, and I learned a lot about myself and life from my time spent in Togo.

My Business Trip to Togo

I was sent by my company to Togo to see if there was a possibility for an expansion of our business in Togo. We are a French company with many branches set up in West Africa, so it is natural that we looked at Togo as a potential ticket to success. I flew in on a business class ticket in a KLM flight that was paid for by my company, so it was very nice to be treated so well on an airplane. The in-flight meal was very good, better than I expected for a business class ticket. In the capital city of Togo, Lome, I bought a tour ticket so that I could get to learn about the sites in Togo and to see if Togo was the right place for us to expand our business. I quickly decided that a branch in Togo would be the key to success for my company.

Togo Is a Lot of Fun

I would have never guessed how much fun Togo is for vacations. I had never even heard of Togo before, but I was searching for cheap tickets for traveling when I found some deals for Togo. Togo is trying to improve its tourist industry, so there are a lot of cheap tickets available now and a ton of stuff to do in Togo. I went over to Togo from New York on a Delta Airlines ticket. The flight was packed on the way from New York to Paris, but the staff did their best to keep us fed and entertained. The flight ticket from Paris to Togo was much more relaxed because the plane was not full. In Togo I made sure to buy a ticket for all the amazing sights and adventures that they have to offer. Togo was my best vacation yet.
