An Easy Earner That Fits Your Travels

White-sand beaches...ancient wonderlands...and cities full of flamenco music and orange trees. Thanks to my ability to teach English, I have seen them all. And it doesn't matter what age you are when you start. I've had colleagues in their 70s. My path as an English teacher has taken me across four continents over the past 15 years. It has allowed me the opportunity to travel extensively—never being tied to one place for longer than the term of a teaching contract—unless I wanted to extend.

Spanish Tapas, Flamenco Dancing…and an Easy Income

Stomping my feet as hard as I could, I twirled around in a frenzy, flailing my arms and yelling before coming to a standstill next to the dark haired woman in front of me. "Bien."

These Spanish Words Are Not Your Friends…

The first time I went to a Spanish speaking country I figured that needing to know the language was over-rated.

"Meet me at the sunset!" My friend called to me over his shoulder as he peddled his ancient bicycle past me on the little dirt road. Sounding more like the last line of a classic film than a concrete plan to meet up, I smiled at how poetic my life felt since moving to the tiny Mexican town of Sayulita. Even the name is beautiful.

The 3 Best Reasons to Learn Spanish

When I started learning Spanish in Spain some years ago, I never envisioned how helpful it would become. Mostly, I just wanted to know how to order food, talk to people a bit and avoid embarrassing myself as much as possible. The more I learned, however, the more I discovered how much of a key that speaking the language is. Spanish has opened many doors for me—in Spain, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Cuba and Mexico.

English-Speakers Wanted…from Spain to Mexico

My profession has taken me all across the world, experiencing unique journeys...attending world famous events...and meeting fascinating people. And I got paid to do it. I have rung in the New Year at Hogmanay in Edinburgh, danced up a storm at Seville’s April Fair, and was awed by the beauty of Buddha’s birthday celebrations in South Korea. I have ridden camels through the Sahara desert, liberated baby sea turtles in Mexico and swam with sharks in Belize.
