  • Description

    We retired a little early at the age of 57 from careers in project management and teaching in order to travel around the world, not to see tourist sites but to experience what it's really like to live overseas among small communities and to give back. We have been nomadic for the last year, working for NGOs in Ethiopia and India, generally in the areas of teaching English, editing publications and creating Income Generating Activities for villagers. When back in Europe to see family, we also do some home and pet sitting. We adore learning new skills in one part of the world and training others in them in another. We also love all things cultural - history, heritage, music, reading, films, etc.
