It doesn't matter what country you're in, what job you're doing or who you're with, Mondays across the world are met with the same reaction.

Hong Kong: The Expat Life – Part 1 (Teacher Training)

I realised that I've been teaching in Hong Kong for nearly 8 months now and yet I've never done a proper blog post about what my job entails and the pros/cons etc. Obviously teaching is a great gateway to travel and I feel like Hong Kong can often be overlooked by TEFL applicants in favour … Continue reading Hong Kong: The Expat Life – Part 1 (Teacher Training)
