Travel & Teach Using Your Disposable Income

This blog post will be added to each time I find a new destination, whether that's in the UK or abroad. If you have disposable income each month, why not consider booking a last-minute trip? It might seem extravagant travelling every single month, but if you have the money left over if you can work abroad or use your holiday cleverly, why wouldn't you? You could tailor this plan to travel every two-three months. With homeschoolers having the freedom to travel whenever they like, we might as well make the most of it!
