Adios!

For the next couple of weeks anyway.

As my previous post explained, I have a lot of travel ahead of me. I was in Wales last weekend (such a good weekend – a write up is in the works! Promise!) and am off to Spain early tomorrow morning (1am early! So no sleep for me tonight) and shall be away for two weeks. It’s not exactly a holiday. In fact, I doubt very much there will be anything relaxing about it.

While not studying for my Masters degree I’m currently employed by my university as a Learning Support Assistant, working with students that have various disabilities. While most of my work involves note-taking, I am also a ‘buddy’ for field trips. One of my students is off to Spain on a geology field trip so I am being sent along to support them.

Lots of looking at rocks ahead methinks. I hope it’s warm!

Will let y’all know how it goes when I’m back.

Until then, adios!

2012 Travel Plans

I love travelling. I’m hardly happier than when I’m on the road, seeing new sights and meeting new people. The Germans use the term ‘wanderlust’ to describe a strong desire to travel and see the world, and I’m the first to confess I have it bad.

My parent’s probably instilled this love in me at a young age – we’ve been going on family holidays for as long as I can remember and they were never the ‘beach and pool’ ones, but cultural, filled with new sights and sounds. We’ve spent many wonderful summers in France, Italy, southern Germany, and even ventured as far afield as Egypt, Israel, Jordan, and Czech Republic, not to mention the obligatory Orlando experience.

On my own, I’ve visited a lot of South East Asia, Oceania, Western USA and various places in Europe and Africa (a fairly complete list of all the countries I’ve been to is here).

So what are my latest plans? Yes, I do have some. I always try and have at least one trip planned because it gives me something to look forward to!

So for 2012 this is what I have coming up: Read More…
