Some of you may or may not know that I am currently in the UK and soon the Uk will be leaving the European Union (EU). This process is called Brexit. I am going, to be honest with you all; I voted to Remain in the EU – however; the rest of my Country disagreed. I knew that in the future, Visas would be needed for me to travel (and work) within the EU. I know that it will not happen straight away but it WILL happen!
I know that I already have to have Visas for Asia and the Americas – I am not bothered about that – but to go and work in Spain; for example, I will need to apply for a Visa!
Are you worried about what is going to happen?
This is the reason why I have not been teaching or posting about teaching for a while as I know that Visas cost money. I have been looking at getting another Online Teaching job, but I need faster internet – which I currently do not have! Any ideas on what I can do to increase the speed of my internet?
As you all remember in my last post; What do you all think of Cyprus? Also, in other news!; I told you all about Twitch and the wonderful channel Awkwards Travel – they have inspired me to look around at other Travel Blogs. I wanted to share my findings with you all…

A Backpacker’s Tale
I have been a little down in the dumps lately (I love a good idiom in the morning!) as I have been trying to work out my TEFL lifestyle. I have been getting the YouTube channel all sorted and researching video editing programmes. i-to-i have brought back the Thailand Internship and recently it has been looking more appalling than it did before. There have advertised the 2018 dates and I REALLY want to go.
Alas; the italki teaching has not happened yet; as I now work “full time” for my part time job – they have messed my shifts up which has made it impossible to get any classes booked or even taught. To cheer myself up last night; I decided to watch “Eat, Pray, Love” with Julia Roberts in. The film is based on the book by Liz Gilbert (which I have on my TBR list; I need to start this book!)
Some of what was said during the film really struck a cord with me. I have watched this film many times but this time it was different. I am wondering if I am heading towards the same fate as Liz did before she wrote the book.I know that there is only my family keeping me here in the UK (oh, and the lack of funds to pay for the internships). I have had enough of dreaming about living it. I want to live it for real!
I have been looking at Workaway again and think I should do one here in the UK before I head off to one abroad.
Well; hello everyone! Two posts in one day we are all very lucky! I have been off work sick today, so I decided to read (or re-read) some TEFL books. I have been stuck in bed all day (I know; lazy bones is I) I grabbed my Essential TEFL book from i-to-i; I have found it very interesting!! The book is By James Jenkin and Emma Foers. They are a pair of geniuses! I think that everyone should go and buy this book!!
However; I have been also looking on the iBooks on the iTunes Store…I found this book:
I have downloaded a sample of it as it costs £11.99. I understand that it can be used as a teaching aid but I think that I will read the sample before splashing out. So far Lessons in your Rucksack is very interesting!
I have also re-read this book:
Teaching With Chopsticks made me laugh and is one of the many reasons why I want to teach in Korea. I think if I can learn from the difficulties that Jon Teacher had; I can achieve there!
do you have any books I could read?!
