Hi, I’m Amy and I’m 23 years old. I graduated from University in 2019 and was meant to 2020 travelling, however that got cut short by COVID-19. I aim to travel as much as possible and since 2015 alone, when I started travelling alone, I’ve been to over 17 different countries.
For a brief over view of 2020, I saved up until February when I jetted off to Mozambique, intending to spend 2 months there and 2 months in South Africa, but, due to COVID, I was forced to abort mission only three weeks in. (For more information on that read this blog!) So, like a lot of other travellers, I returned home to the UK for lockdown. Then, in September I headed out to Gozo, Malta, for 5 weeks to complete my PADI Divemaster qualification. I slipped, and fell, and now I’ve accidentally ended up living in Gozo and becoming a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor… it was one hell of a fall!
I also have a TEFL and currently teach English online, however I hope to be able to experience more of the world by getting teaching jobs in foreign countries and experiencing different cultures.
I am currently struggling for work due to the off season hitting Gozo hard, and writing this blog on the side because I enjoy it and it keeps me busy, however if you enjoy reading, please let me know, it’s great to speak to like minded people!
SOME FUN FACTS ABOUT ME
I am gluten and dairy intolerant.As well as trying to eat vegetarian, meaning my diet can be super restrictive! But I love trying new cuisine and Asian cuisine often automatically fits into my dietary requirements.
My Oupa (grandfather) was South African.I have barely been to South Africa since I was 5; it was one of the places I was meant to be if it weren’t for COVID-19, but I feel huge ties to the country as I heard so much about it from my Oupa (this is an Afrikaans word).
I got my degree in Drama!Since graduating I haven’t done much to do with theatre, however I really loved the theoretical side and learning about the history of theatre, especially as it is an art form that appears in all cultures throughout history and the world in different ways.
