I enjoy travel #MapLoco

It’s an interesting map – ticking off the US as one large country … I always think I’m quite well-travelled, but much more to see, hey?

Learning Portuguese with @MindSnacks

I lived in Brazil for 5 months in 1994 (whilst another World Cup was on, and when Ayrton Senna died). Although I spent most of my time speaking English (for the benefit of the kids I was working with), I wanted to learn some Portuguese, most of which I gained from Linkword. I went back through Brazil as part of my ‘Round the World’ trip in 2008 – and seemed to have forgotten most of Continue Reading →

Excellent Cartoonist @davewalker on Film

If you’ve never seen Dave Walker’s cartoons – where have you been?! I had the privilege of travelling to Uganda with Dave as part of a Tearfund trip, where we tried to come up with some more ideas… Creative types: Being a cartoonist from Michal Dzierza on Vimeo. drbexl Life Explorer, HE/learning, Christian, cultural history, WW2 posters: Keep Calm & Carry On, digital world, coach, ENFP, @digitalfprint, @ww2poster http://drbexl.co.uk Like it?

Bloggers Take on a Tearfund Challenge in Cambodia #TFBloggers

Last year I had the privilege of visiting Uganda with Tearfund to report back on the work they are doing… I was totally sold – so great to see another team heading out, to Cambodia this time, to “see for themselves“… I’m looking forward to hearing what they get up to… This March, three UK bloggers will travel to Cambodia with Tearfund to visit communities living in poverty who are being transformed through the local Continue Reading →

Blogging with @Tearfund for #TFBloggers

#TFBloggers in @churchtimes by @davewalker

An extract from the article: That said, finding a use for my cartooning skills here has been incredibly difficult. It feels as if most cartoons, especially those involving any comparison between aspects of life in Uganda and the UK, would be inappropriate. Although, perhaps, a better cartoonist would manage it. There is plenty of humour being shared by the people, but I would need to stay longer than a week to begin to be a Continue Reading →

Daily Audio Reflections from #TFBloggers

Listen Here (MP3) – 5 days, around 3-4 minutes a day. We were in the dining room – that’s what blogging on the move does for you – it’s a bit raw, we were quite tired, and doing this on the hoof, but listening back to it, I think it’s great what was captured each day. See #TFBloggers page on Tearfund, and don’t forget to check out the project we saw parts of. CODEC has Continue Reading →
