I’m Helen. I’m 37 years old, and have lived in Sydney, Australia all my life.

In 2016, I was incredibly unhappy, and I decided that I needed to do something different. So I applied to teach English at a Spanish primary school for 9 months (conveniently ignoring the facts that my Spanish could best be described as “basic”, and my experience of teaching children is zilch).

What on earth could possibly go wrong?! Let’s just wait and see…
