Visiting London was always on my bucket list while growing up in Australia; everything from the fascinating history and cultural diversity to the restaurants and amazing shopping! Not to mention, Europe is just on the doorstep. I have been lucky enough to live and work here for the last two years and now, just as I am starting to miss family and friends, Thames Teachers is sending me back home for two weeks – in other words I have landed on my feet!
Thames Teachers is sending me to Brisbane and Melbourne to launch our Thames Teachers Live events in April.
Brisbane is my calling! I am so excited about meeting up with my friends who are luckily, mostly teachers and have the holidays off which means lots of lovely catch-up dinners followed by visits to my favourite bars and pubs in the Valley and New Farm. I cannot wait!
I grew up on the beach in Yeppoon, Queensland, and spent half my life on it with my dog, Banjo. After visiting many of Europe’s crowded beaches, I’m looking forward to having the space to enjoy the sand and surf again. Also, the thought of a beach BBQ right now in this English weather is very inviting.
In fact, a friend called me last night and said two words – “road trip” and I cannot wait! We will be visiting Yeppoon and Ballarat (where I also lived) as well as so many of the beautiful spots on the East Coast.
I also plan on catching up with my sister in Melbourne, who is one of the biggest foodies you will ever meet. She has planned an epic food and drink journey for us; being a self -proclaimed expert on where to find the best brunch, the best coffee (dare I go there) and of course bars!
Can you tell I am pretty excited to be going home? I will be in Melbourne on the 12th April and Brisbane on the 14th April at Thames Teachers Live. We will be hosting evenings in each city for anyone interested in coming to work with us in London, and from personal experience it could be the best thing you ever do!
See you there!
