abbey

My name is Ceri. Born & bred in the UK.

I teach. I travel. I read a lot. And every now and again, I write.

In the last 5 years I’ve become a bit of a serial expat. I’ve lived in Mexico and South Korea, and recently moved to Singapore.

I used to write a lot about travelling and living abroad. Now it’s mostly about my day-to-day life and the books I’m reading.

Oh, yeah, and I also have a slight addiction to tea.

  1. Are you really reading The Stand? I love that book, but usually get funny looks when I bring that up. Is this your first time reading it?
    Hit me up when you start your new blog about teaching English in Latin America so I can follow along!

  2. Ceri! So happy I finally found your website (via Andi’s at My Beautiful Adventures). For some reason, Disqus on my blog wouldn’t lead me to your URL. Anyway, can’t wait to see your new blog documenting your trip! Sounds like it will be an amazing experience.

  3. Bienvendos a Mexico!
    When you get to Baja Calirofnia Sur, look me up. If we have some free nightts in the HoneyMoon Hut, come and stay.

    Where will you be teaching English?

    I admire your pluck and determination.

  4. I’d be interested to read more about your experiences with vegetarianism in Mexico. I’m not a vegetarian, but my husband and I eat a lot of meatless meals. It’s a fairly foreign concept here in Argentina, the land of beef, beef and more beef. lol

    • I’ll be doing that real soon, Katie. 🙂 I’ve always wanted to move to Argentina for a little while but I think being a vegetarian means I would end up cooking in a lot of the time. Hahaha.

    • “Not in the Pink” is actually a lyric taken from a Queen song called “I’m Going Slightly Mad”. The lyrics talk about how the singer is essentially losing the plot – “I’m driving only three wheels these days / I think I’m a banana tree” (It’s a great song and video – you should check it out on Youtube).

      One of the lyrics is “Are they trying to tell you something ? You’re missing that one final screw. You’re simply not in the pink my dear. To be honest you haven’t got a clue.”

      I like the phrase “not in the pink” – I always took it to mean, “You’re not entirely sane” and that kind of sums up my life a lot of the time. 😉 Hahaha.

  5. Just read the article ‘This is Your Government’ and wow, you’ve really captured the emotional rut of being unemployed in the UK.

    Would it be possible to have some questions answered ?

  6. I found your blog recently – I love it! We have a remarkably similar story (graduated, want to write, volunteered/uninspired jobs, 18 months abroad, now back in Wales. I was also thinking of going abroad, but couldn’t afford it – I am actually thinking of South Korea now! Sounds great 🙂
