The Intrepid Guide is not only a chronicle of my travels and language learning adventures but also a way for people to find inspiration, tips, and advice. Sound interesting? Work with me!
So why should you work with The Intrepid Guide?
The Intrepid Guide is more than a place where readers can find what they should do on their next trip, although it covers that too! It’s where readers can seek help and be inspired to travel and explore in ways they didn’t realise they are capable of. Often articles are written from an expat perspective, which gives them more depth than the average traveller passing through. I like to dig deeper, and my own experience and the contacts I’ve made living all across the globe allows me to do that.
The Intrepid Guide is also passionate about making language learning more accessible and fun. Michele shares her first-hand experience for learning Italian, French and Afrikaans with honest posts of her struggles and triumphs of learning a foreign language. The Intrepid Guide is a hub language tools and tip which can aid learners of any language.
