Over the last two months, I’ve been very busy! Firstly, Chris and I took a quick weekend trip to Kazbegi along the Georgia Military Highway! In addition to that small trip, I attended a baby shower, prevented my cat from dying via surgery, rescued a NEW kitten, launched a new website with Chris, and more!
I used to think that traveling the world was only for young, single people. Like the kind of people fresh out of college with very few responsibilities. Wrong! Families can travel the world and have big adventures too! It will take a little extra planning and preparation, but the payoff will be amazing. Our family is just five people who want to see the world and spend more time with each other.
The following is a guest post by Melody Mukute, a Zimbabwean mother of three and an active member of my China Teach Abroad Community Facebook group. Melody is a certified teacher in Zimbabwe with six years of teaching experience. A few weeks ago Melody reached out to me and asked if she could share her experience teaching in China as an African non-native speaker. Of course, I was happy to share her experience!
Some of you may have noticed I haven’t done the Freedom Life monthly recaps for these last few months. To be honest, I don’t have much of an excuse for why I’ve taken some time off except for that sometimes you need a little bit of a break. With everything that’s been happening this year […]

The country of Georgia is famous for its incredible food and wine. So when in Tbilisi, why not book a Kakheti wine tasting tour to experience Georgian wine culture?! Chris and I officially moved to Tbilisi, Georgia (yes, the COUNTRY not the state) just over a month ago, and the first item on our bucket […]
Seriously, if you’re looking for some bang for your buck, Southeast Asia is the PERFECT place to plan a honeymoon. Not only can you have an incredible hotel for a budget price, but food is also cheap, the beaches are great, and coming from Australia the flights weren’t too bad either! Expect a full breakdown and honeymoon itinerary from us in the future, but for now I want to tell you about our biggest splurge of the trip: staying in an overwater bungalow in Langkawi Malaysia!
Travelers can be some of the hardest people to shop for. How do you buy gifts for people who prioritize experiences over “things”? A few Christmases ago, I made the mistake of saying I wanted some candles for my apartment in China, and I ended up with no less than 8 candles as gifts. Trust me, trying to make weight with a bunch of perfumed glass bricks in my bag wasn’t easy. Whoopsies!
Teaching abroad in China is an incredible experience. You have the ability to make money, explore a new culture, and challenge yourself to have the adventure of a lifetime!

Whether you’re on the fence about teaching abroad, or you’re trying to choose between China and another country, these are my 10 main reasons why teaching abroad in China is amazing!
