How I travel the world from my desk

•••
I decided to teach English online so that I could be location-independent, and travel anytime and anywhere I wanted.

A Beginner's Guide to Welcoming the Unexpected into your Life

How many times have you dreamed about sailing… and thought it wasn’t for you? I know I’m lucky to have been a sailor since a young age. Sailing was in my weekly routine since I was ten, and it’s still a huge part of who I am. Being at sea has always made me feel stronger and happier and it still does, every time!
