The story of how I got to teach in five countries in one season.
Is it really 6 YEARS since I came back from Greece!? Read the second travel post I ever wrote, originally published in my old hunting grounds: Nobodysaknowitall. As with my throwback to Beijing, please bear in mind that this was written by a naive and inexperienced 17-year-old – just looking at the giant suitcase is making me blush!

Finally, I travelled to those sites I have been reading about! Although I didn’t get to do a full tour of Greece, given the small amount of cash I had, I think I did pretty well.

With interrail passes and flights included, the whole trip came to around £1200 each. Here’s a rundown of the measures we took to keep costs down, and the sacrifices that were made along the way.
This morning I woke up at 7am to see a blurry blue and yellow semi circle telling me that Britain had voted to leave the European Union.
I couldn’t quite believe it. The 3.9% difference was minuscule enough that I thought rubbing my eyes a few times would reveal something different. Alas, moments after I read the headlines, the final vote counts were in and that was that. We are leaving, and I’m royally pissed off about it. Continue reading “Brexit”
