Learning a language? Check out these free resources

It’s no secret, learning another language is good for the brain. Especially as we get older, being lingually diverse has shown to help combat the effects of diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Knowledge is also power, and increasing your database also opens a world of career and travel opportunities, as I’ve covered in a previous blog.…


Saving the planet really *doesn’t* cost the Earth

As citizens of the world, it’s fast becoming apparent that in order to preserve this blue planet, we must each make personal choices to mitigate the harm that we do to it. This doesn’t have to be expensive, and being a responsible Earthling can, in fact, save you money. Here’s a small incomprehensive list of…

Worldschooling: What is it? Could you do it, too?

If travelling the world with your children and educating them on-the-go – as I have done – sounds appealing, you’re not alone. Parents in every continent have chosen to eschew mainstream education to explore new destinations, either through home schooling, online tuition, or short-term international school placements. For worldschoolers, slow travel and becoming immersed in…


How I chose my financial adviser

If, like me, your skills lie in areas other than finance wizardry, seeking advice from a pro makes sense.
