My First Month Teaching English Online With Cambly Kids!

I admit it, I’m one of those annoying people that came out of lockdown with a new ‘skill/qualification’. While I couldn’t go to work at my day job as a preschool teaching assistant, I decided to use the time to get my 120hr TEFL qualification to teach English as a second language online. I’ve now been working online with Cambly Kids for a month and I’m loving it!

I Think I’m Too Old For TikTok. But Then I’m Not Sure It’s Suitable For Kids Either…

Like many other people, I fell into the TikTok rabbit hole during lockdown. I had resisted it for so long. It started by scrolling endlessly through videos for hours and then I decided to start making content myself. When you run a business online, you kinda have to be up on the trending platforms. More and more creators were saying that with the rate TikTok is growing, and how quickly you can grow an audience, it’s a good place to be. So I thought I would give it a go.

2020 The Year of The Staycation: What My UK Mini Break Was Like

If you had told me at the start of the year that my only summer holiday in 2020 would be 2 nights in my home county, I wouldn’t have believed you! I had a week in Tennessee, USA planned, along with a week in Portugal and 2 weeks in Zanzibar (Tanzania). As you can imagine, they all got knocked on the head. One was completely cancelled, one got rebooked and the third is in vouchers. So to give me some sort of a break, I booked a last minute 2 night glamping trip, literally 20 minutes from my house!

Repatriating Back To The UK: 1 Month Update!

It’s been just over a month since I returned to the UK! So I thought I’d give a bit of an update as to what has been going on and what it’s like to be back. Spoiler alert, I think I made the right decision and I’m sleeping at night again! Yay! I booked my flight before everything that’s been happening this year kicked off. I spent nearly 3 months worrying if the flight would even depart. What a time to choose to repatriate! In all honesty, if it wasn’t already booked before everything kicked off, this year would have been the final straw anyway.

7 Things To Do In Llandudno, North Wales

Llandudno is a Victorian seaside town located in North Wales.  North Shore Beach is large with a wide pedestrianised promenade.  But there’s so much to do in Llandudno aside from the beach!  A major geographical feature is the Great Orme headland, a limestone land formation which was once mined for copper (you can still visit the disused mine/cave).  It’s also home to a herd of wild goats!

The Best Zoos In The Midwest USA

I think zoos are a great way to educate visitors about the millions of animal species that we share this planet with. Some establishments can be harmful…just look at Tiger King. Please don’t support places like this…It’s best to look for ones that have been accredited by boards like the ‘Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ and support global conservation efforts. These zoos are held to a high standard of regulations, so are a good place to start. I’ve collaborated with other Midwest travel writers, to bring you a list of some of the bests zoos in the Midwest!

The Turmoils of Being in an International Long Distance Relationships in 2020

My goodness. What a time to be in an international long distance relationship! Everyone knows that 2020 has been a right pig. Weddings have been cancelled, visa processes have been temporarily suspended and borders have been closed for travel. Some people have missed out on holidays but for others it’s meant that they’ve been trapped miles away from their loved ones for months. Current expats and future expats are struggling right now.
