The Passport Profiles

No real names used (in order of important somewhat):


That’s me. Obviously ‘liya isn’t my real name, I mean, whose name starts with an apostrophe and a lower case letter? I’m not some kind of celebrity ;)

I’m a high school English and Visual Arts teacher and I simply adore my job – I’m not just saying that, I really have a lot of fun at work. The students I teach are hilarious (and quite talented) and I don’t dread waking up every morning.  I have two caring parents and a lot of siblings… well 3, which is a lot to some but perfect for me. I’m a quiet person who thinks a lot and I often think in colours and textures and a whole lot of abstract things that don’t make sense to other people. And I love to travel. Did I say I love to TRAVEL? If I weren’t happy as a teacher I’d be travelling around the world (but for that you need $$$ and I don’t have that right now). I love everything from ancient ruins, to the tallest buildings, from bridges, to beaches and museums. And I love travelling with The Husband because he makes me laugh, even when we’re lost in the middle of a crowded, hot city where not a soul speaks English, we always have an adventure.
