Over the last few weeks I’ve had some time to think about what direction I want my life to go. Now sitting on the lakeshore of Lake
Malawi, I’m for certain where and what I want to do. As you know, in 2017 I’m moving to Columbia to teach English for a year. I also aim to travel in South America whilst I’m there. Thereafter, my plan is to work and travel in Asia for a few years. Hiking the Great Wall of China is big on my bucket list as well as Japan; that will happen sometime during those few years.
Once I have done that, my plan is to come back to Africa, and settle back somewhere in Southern Africa; though I don’t think South Africa will be where I end up. I have spent two and half years there and being back up north again I’ve realized that I didn’t quite fit in there – the way I was brought up and the way life is there didn’t gel to what makes me feel at home.
Furthermore, I plan to align myself with a charity somewhere in Zimbabwe to fundraise for them. A long term goal is to help run an orphanage wherever I settle. The orphanage idea, was generated whilst doing community work back in college. These plans will take a few years to grow before they become a reality.
In conclusion, take a look at the ESLstarter program that I’m using to work in Columbia, they are really helpful. http://www.eslstarter.com/affiliates/?ref=88
Keep watching for updates, and more exciting stories of my adventures in Africa for the rest of the year!
