I just received this lovely note from Marie Louis, a teacher that I met that attended G2KWorld Travel Chat and French Dining.
On November 19, I went to this fabulous, life-changing event held at Buena Vista Bistro in Miami. It was hosted by Erica Nelson. Let me explain… It was fabulous because we were able to meet and greet people that enjoyed traveling and hear their varying experiences with traveling around the world. It was fun and interesting. The food and ambiance were excellent. All had a great time. However, for me it was also life changing. One of the conversations led me to apply for a teaching position in the Middle East the next day. One week later, I had 3 phone interviews. The following week I had a Skype interview as a follow-up and I was offered a position as a teacher/trainer in Dohar, Qatar. I leave January 2. Wow! Who would have thought that attending a meet and greet just 3 weeks earlier would serve as a catalyst for traveling around the world? Only God! Be open to change. Get out of your comfort zone and live with anticipation and in expectation (of great things)! Being in the right place, at the right time, and with the right people, can create opportunities for you! Special thanks to Erica Nelson, Kandance Johnson, Julie Mansfield, and Doxy for the various parts you played!
Congratulations Marie! Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful news with me and Getting to Know the World. It’s so encouraging and awe inspiring. Enjoy your travels and God speed! Let’s meet up somewhere out there in the world.
