Sarah Knowles. A bright smile. A booming voice. A personality that makes you feel as care free as she is. Someone who could stay in school forever – teaching that is – and travel the world, and would be happy just to do that.
In a recent interview on her travels, Sarah told me about the different countries she’s travelled to. Some she went to with friends and families, and others she traversed on her own, unsure as to what to expect from the foreign country, but excited to get started, meet new people, and take in every gorgeous site there is to see.
Some of the countries she’s been to include, Mexico, Australia, United States of America, France, Germany, Spain, China, Hong Kong, Equador, Italy, and Belize. Outside of Australia, Hong Kong, and Belize, Sarah travelled the others with family and friends. When travelling in these countries, she found travel guides helpful, but the ability to see whatever you want and go wherever you choose, has always been an adventure Sarah couldn’t refuse. She enjoys exploring the country and avoiding the typical “touristy” things. Being able to see what the locals do on a daily basis, and see the country for what it really is, is a goal Sarah has every time she takes her first steps in a different country.
Sarah’s next adventure is travelling through South East Asia to Bangkok, Thailand, Cambodia, and then Vietnam. She’s not concerned about language barriers as she’s taking a tour with English speaking people. She’s excited for this next adventure that will lead her back to her contract teaching job in Hong Kong.
She will continue to travel for most of her life, and maybe, she’ll settle down. At the end of the day, Sarah will go wherever she can, but always travel safely. She has not been in a country with major conflict, and has no intention of going to one. She prefers the safety of knowing she can go almost anywhere without threat to her life. It’s a comfort.
