Going travelling is a fun way to spend your time and definitely something you should do while you’re young. You get to see amazing landmarks that are unbelievable. Here are the world’s top monuments that you need to see at least once while you’re travelling!

The Colosseum

One of the most famous on our list, the Colosseum in Rome is a monument which has millions of people of all ages visiting every year. It’s one of the most iconic buildings in Italy, and it is the biggest amphitheatre ever built. It’s magnificent to look around, and you can learn about all the history of the gladiator shows while you’re there. It’s also beautiful to have a look around at night when it’s lit up. While you’re in Rome, you can also take a look at St. Peter’s Basilica and Trevi Fountain!

Just Turn Left

I must say I miss working in the smaller towns around China; magical amazing days of initiation into TEFL that will forever stay close to me. The attitude and way of life is completely the opposite to that of say Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu or Shenzhen and yes, it is completely stunning!

Things are always done in a more relaxed and less formal manner and it’s easy to get work, especially if there is a big tourist influx. Take Yangshuo (Yangers to the local expats) near Guilin for example. There are schools all over the place just ready to take on any foreigner for any length of time. People stay for a weekend, a week or a month. Even those who consider themselves regular teachers really only ever stay for around a year. Take your pick! (tx Wikipedia)
