I quit my job as a teacher to travel around Portugal and Brazil to improve my language skills. I've ended up learning loads more than just Portuguese and am having an amazing Worldpackers experience. Passionate about travel too? Get in touch.

Experiencia de viaje
Ever since I can remember I have loved travelling and learning about different cultures and countries. With my family I would go camping in France every year and when I was old enough and had enough money I started visiting new places. Outside of Europe I have been to Morocco, India, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Panama, the USA and Canada. I have also seen quite a bit of Europe, with Portugal being my absolute favourite country. It was actually love at first sight and since 2015 (my first visit - to Lisbon) I have been back a number of times, made portuguese friends and learned the language!
