Chegou o dia!!!!

Finalmente estamos viajando pra Europa. O Steve e eu estamos embarcando hoje pra Inglaterra. De lá iniciaremos a nossa aventura. Difícil dizer pelo que estou mais ansiosa. Acho que é mesmo por conhecer a Charlotte, a nossa máquina que será também nosso lar pelos próximos meses.

Foram os 3 meses de EXTREMA expectativa. O Stephen passou por 2 cirurgias no joelho devido ao acidente em casa dias antes do nosso embarque, que seria em Março e outro susto que tivemos e aguardando recuperação. Foram dias em que vivenciei, creio eu, todas as emoções possíveis e inimagináveis. Velando mamãe e o Stephen também. Estou aqui no Aeroporto no portão de embarque e QUE ALEGRIA E PAZ que sinto redigindo este texto. Seja o que você leitor tenha como crença, quando algo ruim acontece na sua vida, saia do barulho à sua volta e ainda que se pergunte ou escancare ” O que se quer de mim com tudo isso que está acontecendo????!!!!” Saiba que tudo há uma razão, um motivo e este será no final sempre para o bem de todos. Como vivenciar maravilhosos dias numa viagem como esta, sabendo que uma das pessoas que você mais ama e os a sua volta precisarão de suporte seja do prático e o emocional. E, há alguém neste Universo que cuida de tudo e nos agracia com milagres e batalha por nós também.

E estou aqui no Portão 321 onde em instantes irei chamar o dono da casa com palmas e ter a permissão pra entrar nessa casa gigantesca.

Dica boua:

Indico o site 123Milhas pra compra de passagens aéreas mais baratas. Passamoa sufoco pra encontrar bilhete barato ainda mais na alta temporada na Europa.

Free English Lessons for young Brasilians

Foreword:
HELP less fortunate young people help themselves in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Is quality teaching an art? I think most talented teachers would say, absolutely yes! Good teachers are performers. 

http://ir-uk.amazon-adsystem.com/s/ads.js

Teaching is a lot like acting, a high-energy, performance profession that requires a person to act as a role model. Ref. Mindshift. Good teachers are highly motivated performers with huge personalities who are prepared to give and give.

Heh, my name is Steve Bradeley, Prof. Steve Bradeley as I’m known in SP.  I’m an English Teacher working with people in Sao Paulo. Time and time again I hear “but I can’t afford to learn English” In Brasil, English is so important, it’s a way out of poverty and a way to improve your life. Imagine being a young person in Sao Paulo looking to get a start on the ladder of lfe. Without English it’s almost impossible to get out of the poverty trap we are all aware of. In Brazil it’s ten times as hard as it is in modern Europe the States. I’ve been here for nearly eight years now teaching young people how to speak English and most drop out through lack of funds. I can’t teach people for free it’s impossible. So help me to develop my school and help some of these people get on in life.

What we want to do to be very very clear is to be able to offer English lessons to young people and teach them English even if they can’t afford it. Once a student expresses a wish to learn then money won’t stand in his way. We have a way to “SAY YES” We believe that our campaign is a very unselfish campaign and is aimed at helping others create a life.

 

What are the problems?

In SP there are many private English schools but they offer large crowded classes and are expensive. The minimum wage here is R$800 per month, the equivalent of £180.00 per month. This is the minimum per week in the UK. State schools are very very poor and don’t offer effective English lessons. So, the only chance is to pay high monthly school fees, if you can. Clearly, on £180.00 per month this is not possible if you come from a favela or poor working class family.

What do we want to do?

As already stated, it’s simple. Offer poorer young people the chance to learn English in a good school. Tuition and learning materials.

What do we need?

We need cash. regular income in small generous donations. The equivalent of £80.00 British pounds or $100.00 US Dollars a month will pay for one student. He or she will then have nothing to pay. So..

$800.00 US per month will allow 10 students to study English.
$8,000.00 Dollars a month will allow 100 students to study free of charge. So we would like to have 800 Patreons all donating $1.00 per month. That would simply be amazing.

If you can help us in any way we will send you a free e-book every month as a reward. Plus photos of the people we meet and work with. Thank you in advance.

Conheça Charlotte o nosso campervan

Who are we?

My name is Renata Ribeiro Silva Bradeley and my husbands name is Steve Bradeley. I am Brazilian and Steve is English.

Steve and I live in Sao Paulo Brazil. We are a husband and wife team planning to spend time travelling Europe by camper van and motorcycle.12036805_989282921123205_8490958663770377798_n

We are primarily bikers and love to travel and explore places on our BMW GS motorcycle, but this year we decided, as part of our honeymoon to travel by camper van. Our beloved BMW is called “Greta” she is an 18 year old bike and still in lovely condition. We recently bought our camper van, small as it is, with the view of simply travelling around Europe for six months sightseeing.

Steve is an English Teacher inglesozinho.com usually working from Sao Paulo, however, most of his students are taught online and so this gave us the perfect opportunity to travel and earn some travel money whilst enjoying our honeymoon. He will give lessons in the evenings and we will travel and enjoy our adventure during the day. Our van is fully equipped with 240 volt AC power and internet.

Meet “Charlotte” our 2005 Citroen camper van. With just enough room for two people keeping us cozy and comfortable during those cool Marc1h and April nights. We bought Charlotte from Ebay whilst living in Sao Paulo. The same way Steve bought Greta a few years ago. Charlotte came fully fitted with 240 volt AC power, a double fold-away bed, a small kitchen equipped with fridge, cooker and small sink. 9All we had to do was buy bedding and cooking and eating utensils. We have a small amount of storage space in two very small cupboards and room for plastic storage boxes under the bed. Steve sits in the front passenger seat and gives his English lessons online using his ipad and laptop plugged into a 12 volt DC / 240 volt AC inverter. We also have a further inverter connected to a 150 watt solar panel fixed to the roof of the van.

So follow us as we travel around Europe enjoying the freedom that for most is only a dream. Our trip starts on the 1st April 2017 and ends when it ends. Below is a list of countries we intend to visit and a loose itinerary and a map of Europe. As well as students in Brazil, Steve has students in Italy and Spain. Part of our plan is to meet his students and spend some time with them as we travel.europe_map

England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland,  Republic of Ireland, France, Holland, Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Monaco and Spain.
