After completing my Masters in Education in 14 months, I am rewarding myself with a 14 month sabbatical from teaching to travel and to do all the things I never have time for. I look forward to exchanging my time as a teacher, student, to a traveling girl. I get anxious and excited thinking about all the things I want to do on my time off. I haven’t had the chance yet to fully develop my year-off-bucket-list. I have a few things planned for July, but I still have 13 more months to plan! I look forward to spending some time very soon writing up my year-off-plan. I’m constantly looking for ideas of things to do and places to visit.
