My name is Anny, I am 24 years old and from a small town in the East of England. I have decided to start my blog called Anny’s Adventures annysadventures.com to share my travelling experiences working abroad, how easy it is to find jobs, how you don’t have to spend a fortune to go and hopefully influence people to go travelling.
Ever since I can remember I loved to travel, my parents would take me an my sisters on different holidays every year, mostly driving around Europe at that time, it felt magical!
From then on I was hooked, always helping my dad find the next exciting destination to travel to in the school holidays. Not only did I love the adventures travelling brought, I also strived off trying to find the best deal to the most exotic places and producing the most effective itineraries.
As well as my passion for travelling my second love was for water skiing, ever since my dad took me to our club when I was younger I was hooked! So it only felt right that I incorporate my passions together, so when I was in my second year of college I worked for 8 weeks as a water ski instructor at Raquette Lake Camp, Raquette Lake, New York, USA. I loved it so much I went back the next summer after I graduated University.
Graduating University was hard, I applied for a huge number of graduate jobs which didn’t really appeal to me but I knew I had to do something. When I returned from America that summer I once again started searching for jobs which didn’t interest me, when I came across another water ski instructor job, this time in Greece for an activity holiday company. I successfully got the job and left 4 days later, that was it, left my ‘normal’ life behind, broke up with my boyfriend of two years, said goodbye to my family again after being home two weeks and journeyed into the complete unknown. Little did I know this would be the start of my incredible graduate life, that was two and a half years ago, since then I have completed three summer seasons in Greece, a winter season snow skiing in France and a spring, summer and fall in a ski school in America, as well as many other adventures along the way.
In June 2016 I embarked on my biggest adventure yet – Teaching English in Bogota, Colombia and after 6 months I can officially say I’m in love with this amazing country, its friendly people, culture and breathtaking landscapes. I feel like I truly belong here.
