    At home

    So many great places to choose from - I am open to them all. Not so sure what's next due to the travel situation at the moment, but planning an escape asap! Always keen to hear what 40+ age are up to.

  • Description

    Dear Work Away Hosts,

    I worked for many years in corporate marketing based firstly in London, followed by 20 years in the Middle East and Africa.
    I am now semi retired, working occasionally as a freelance marketing content creator, dog sitting or helping with the family Bed and Breakfast - managing the guests, cleaning, cooking breakfast and generally taking care of visitors.

    The rest of the time I am free to follow my heart, which leads me to new people, places and experiences. I am currently writing a humorous memoir on my travels and the new experience of mid-life!

    When I am home in England I live on my gorgeous narrow boat on the river, enjoying time alone reading, writing and walking along the river, plus socialising with family, friends and my boat neighbours.

    I have a TEFL qualification and although I have never formally worked as a teacher, this is something I would like to practice in schools or helping the families, friends and local staff to practice their English conversation skills to become more fluent and confident.
    I can also help with ideas on marketing and promotion of your business to tourists, and am an experienced copy writer so can help you with your marketing content.

    I love music festivals, hiking and yoga, plus reading.
    I used to sail regularly and have just tried paddle boarding. I also enjoy trying new food and learning about growing vegetables - happy to help in the kitchen - one of my favourite things about travelling is staying in hostels and sharing stories with other travellers.

    I am an amateur Tarot healer and love the conversations and opportunities it creates, bringing confidence and clarity to people, empowering them to lead their best life.

    I am currently curating my second half of life and wish to fill it with travelling, meeting people and learning new things. Anything that offers an inspiring experience.

    My latest trips have been around Kerala, India; Oaxaca Mexico - learning Spanish - Cuba, Cambodia and Laos, Thailand. In October 2019 I was in Costa Rica for the baby turtle season and saw so many beautiful animals.

    I look forward to being invited to your home.
    Rachel :)
