Who Is RunawayBrit?
I’m a 30-something English teacher from the United Kingdom. My longing to travel was born after a short trip through Eastern Europe in 2000 when I went from Germany to Romania by train and experienced the first flush of wanderlust. After that I was determined to escape from Britain at every opportunity.
I first became a Runaway Brit at 23 when I went to work in Tokyo for a year as a TEFL teacher for a small language school. After a 4 year teaching stint back home in Northampton, UK, I left again for Vietnam. This time I worked in an International school in Saigon for 3 years and travelled throughout South East Asia during the holidays.
My travel companion is mainly my partner Nicklas, a great Swedish guy that I met when I was travelling in Cambodia in 2008. Read our story ‘Serendipity in Sihanoukville’ over at the excellent Nomadic Chick website. When he is busy working I travel with friends.
Runawaybrit offers personal stories of life on the road, as well as heaps pf advice about how I maintain my travel lifestyle. And if I can do it, you can too!
