Welcome to my “Philatelic Pursuits.” Allow me to introduce myself and this blog.
My name is Mark Jochim and I was born in Texas. For the first 40 years of my life, I lived in the United States where I collected stamps off and on from the age of ten.
A decade ago, I made a very big change in my life. I became a teacher of English As A Second Language (ESL) and moved to Phuket, an island in southern Thailand.
