Traveling has become an art and a science these days, and anyone who's ever traveled will have something to share. I'm here to teach you what I've learned through traveling. Through T.L.T. I hope that you are able to maximize your time on your journey by preparing a little bit ahead of time, but holding on to a sense of flexibility and being open to beautiful experiences. Our most beautiful moments in life aren't always planned.

English has become the global language for business and traveling. Regardless of the country, you're more likely to find people who speak English as a second language more than any other language in the world.

As an ESL teacher, I hope to also give grammar and language tips that will be useful when traveling, if English is your second language.

Thanks for reading!
