Marianne Sept 2011

 

This site was created and launched this website in December 2009.

Hello and welcome! Hola y ¡bienvenido!

I`m glad you`re here. My name is Marianne Graff.

I created this site to document my travels and adventures around this big blue globe of ours. While it started as a travel blog for armchair travellers, it has evolved to include a lot of recipes and food stories, photos essays, and teaching resources for others who are living abroad and teaching English.

I’m a Canadian who has chosen to live abroad, quitting my job as a Library Director of a public library in May 2009 to actual live the life of my dreams, a life of travel and adventure, instead of just thinking about it. I´m lucky that I was in a position to be able to do this. So far, I have loved the freedom and fun of living abroad.

As a certified ESL instructor (C.E.L.T.A.), I fell back into teaching English in 2010, and have discovered that I really, really like it. More than freelance writing.

And I have lucked into a job that allows me to combine my librarianship training with teaching: I`m currently the Library Director for a private language institute in Chile, and teach English there too, as well as tutoring privately.

Here is a list of my official publications:
