I used to be that kind of girl who didn’t believe that she could afford to travel. ‘How on earth will I afford it?’ I asked. Yet, a chance encounter with a stranger on a train changed all of that (check my About Me page!) and I realised that I could leave my job and the UK within a couple of months, with very little money in my pocket.
How did I do it? I decided to teach English abroad!
