Went to a lovely event: I LOVE SATURDAY

It was fun, it was creative, it was last Saturday and we were there and loved it. The I Love Saturday event held it's promises with many creators showing their beautiful handcrafted items. The workshops were overbooked (weaving, DreamCatcher making...) and the yoga lessons and massage were awesome. The food was organic, nutricious and unique thanks to the Nourishing Box and their super juice bar. Thank you to Emily (the Nourishing Box) and Caroline (Caroline's Yoga), two sisters who gave their energy and time and kindness to all os us who attended, kids included. Go HERE and HERE on Facebook to visit all the creators that were present and see for yourself what they do! Here are some pics from the day, hope to see you all at the next edition!

In Hossegor… what’s on in South Western France!

I have the beach house, as some of you may know. It's where I feel safe and seek refuge in, often, to escape the cities and bustle and broohaha that I have been exposed to for long periods of my life. InHossegor is a wonderful website where you can find everything that is going on, all the places to be at and some fabulous ideas in South West France, between Biarritz and Hossegor. Come see the dunes, the surf, the gorgeous cuisine and the fresh and vibrant local environment. InHossegor InHossegor                       InHossegor Read on...

Jobs (tried and tested) to work around the world – Part 1

People often ask me how I have been able to travel so much and afford to live in different countries the way I have. I always respond the same way: I worked there. To travel is great but to go LIVE abroad is even greater. To wake up to newness, challenges, cultural differences, minute and big discoveries, every day. New smells, new light, new codes, new culture. It's a motivational EXPLOSION. So by looking back on the ways I was able to travel pre-kid and post-kid (because you CAN go live abroad when you have kids, no excuses) here are a few ideas of some jobs that enabled me and can therefore enable you, to leave the comfort of your local space for the comfort of newness and adventure. 1 - Teaching English Abroad Teaching English France TEFL around the world This is what enabled me to go live in a couple of countries and find work immediately. Do so I needed to have the TEFL diploma a (see link below) so I went to do a TEFL course in Madrid and the school that taught me how to become a teacher actually hired me after to teach students of English of all ages. It's fun, varied, flexible work and very inspiring if you like to meet the locals and experience the culture of where you live. The TEFL is easy enough to get if you work hard enough at it and is basically recognized everywhere in the world if you want to teach English.
