Girl in GoldRed DoorCarrie

The only life worth living is one that you are truly passionate about…

I quit my job to travel the world in 2003, and I’ve never looked back. I started my journey in Asia, where I’ve had the opportunity to dream, explore and live life to its fullest. I’ve worked as an ESL teacher, a lounge singer, an actress, and a jewelry designer in the past ten years.

Today, my husband and I are the folks behind Reach To Teach Recruiting, an ESL placement agency that specializes in placing teachers with esteemed teach abroad programs, Ministries of Education, and private schools all over the globe. I perform several duties with Reach To Teach. I handle international recruitment for our Taiwan schools, but I also oversee our website, marketing and advertising, and client development.

I have also worked in the professional publishing industry for many years as a freelance writer, editor, and photographer. Please visit my professional portfolio for a complete list of my published articles and photography.

When my time isn’t occupied by professional gigs, I can usually be found in the photography studio or out on the streets snapping photos.

Oh, and I travel, a lot!

I’m always looking for new projects, collaborations and freelance assignments, so drop by  Carrie or view my CV on LinkedIn for details on the kind of projects I’ve worked on.

    Beautiful photo Carrie! I like the concept of your blog and how it is about integrating the different physical and spritual worlds that we inhibit.

  3. Carrie

    Claude! How’s the Valley treating you now that you’ve moved out of the city? :)
    I’ll be home in mid-May and would love to collect on that hug. Hope to see you soon. Best wishes to you and your loved ones for 2007! Oh yeah, GO SENS!

  4. globetrotteri

    Thanks Jo. I couldn’t have explained that better myself!

    My sister taught in Taiwan as well and she told me it’s a wonderful experience, though i doubt i’ll ever become an ESL teacher. I hope your adventures there and abroad usher in great memories.

  6. Bianka

    Wow… my beautiful Carrie… How I miss you! I am so happy for you. I really enjoyed your blog and I am looking forward to reading more of it. I envy you. You left Ottawa and went for the adventure and this not even thinking twice. You are very strong and very powerful. Please come and visit me in Montreal when you come back? I am looking forward to the day that I will see you again… take care my beautiful friend.

  7. globetrotteri

    BIANKA! YAYYYYYY! I’m so happy to hear from you! We’ve been out of touch for so long. I never know if you’re recieving my emails or not, so I can’t tell you how happy I am to see you a comment here. I will most definitely look you up when I come home in May.

  8. globetrotteri

    Taiwan is a wonderful place to be and I really enjoy teaching here. Thank you for your warm wishes.

    With love as always, Gem x

  10. globetrotteri

    Many thanks for your visit. I’m glad you like it and hope to be including more about my life and friendships in China shortly.
    India sounds wondeful. We’re so jealous because we know you’re both having the time of your lives! ))))HUGS((((

  13. Claude

    Carrie, the Valley is the best move I have ever made,in regards to quality of life. I love and miss everyone in the Glebe though. I’m actually enjoying my work for once. I ‘m enjoying the country life,and am happier over all. Did I tell you my son Dustin is at Nippissing University, studying to be a teacher(1st year). He’s already talking about teaching abroad. Your experinces and tips may come in handy for him later. Thanks!
    Hope you and John are well, and yes I can’t wait to give you your hug too!

  14. Claude

    By the way I’m on face book

  15. globetrotteri

    Hi Claude,
    I’ll be sure to look you up on face book. I’m glad you’re enjoying the Valley. What a change! When I read your message yesterday, I couldn’t help thinking back to the good old days at Sassy. I miss your daily visits.

    Then I got to thinking about Justin as well. I can’t believe it’s been that long. I’m glad to hear he’s at Nippissing…not too far from our stomping grounds. Please pass on my email if he has any questions about living and teaching in Asia. I’d be happy to help!


  16. Raindreamer

    I like your blog too. You write nicely and it is nice to read your stories about taiwanese culture.

  17. globetrotteri

    Thanks Raindreamer. I’m glad you like it. There are so many wonderful things to write about, I sometimes have a hard time keeping up with everything! :-)

  18. idrewf

    I spent 6 years living in Japan and traveling Asia quite a bit, I understand your fascination and love for it, look forward to more reading and photos :)


  19. Erica Johansson

    Hi, I just wanted to say that I really like your blog! I haven’t been to Asia…yet, so it’s fun to read your posts and look at all the beautiful pictures!


  20. julian

    You two are experiencing many wonders only few could ever even imagine …. and i believe it is truly due to the fact that you two have a very special affinity …. and that in itself is most grand. best of luck & well-wishes on all your endeavours!

  21. Joe Midway

    Love your site!…and then I realized you were from Ottawa (by the sounds of it anyway?) How crazy, me too! Anyhow, very interesting site and some great photography. Stay safe and enjoy your travels!

    “Most of our travels throughout Asia have been by motorcycle. It’s a great way to travel and one that I would certainly never do on my own. ”
    – This one stuck to me. If you happen to be in the Philippines during one of those adventures, visit my hometown Dumaguete City. It’s known for motorcycles. People decide not to drive cars there. They have motorcycles instead. So you can rent one easily and go around the beautiful island of Negros.

    Now I sound like a travel brochure. Tsk tsk.

    Anyhow, I love your blog. Love it to bits. I find the way you write about Asian culture sensitive, sincere, and earnest. Hope this goes on and on…

  23. reefer

    oh and by the way, you and your fiance look perfect together. your love story is soooo romantic. i wish you all the best in november next year.

    Hi Carrie,
    Yes I’m a new reader, Yea I took some time to look around and seems worth it! Still havent finished! Dont mention it.. I’ll be sincere with my comments. We are not strangers anymore. I’m very new to blogging (photoblogging)..and it seems really cool,a way to make some friends around the globe with a similar interest to share with.
    Sorry I typed it wrong, here is my site..
    That self portrait is simply awesome. looking forward to see more of those.
    (sorry if repeated..)

    Hi Carrie, I'm a fan of photography for sure, inspired by National Geographic photography since childhood. Brief about myself:: Yeah! my site is a photography site.. to share and improve my photography skills and to make new friends too. My artworks are mainly charcoal/pencil sketches mainly portraits, an occasional painter too. I love to travel around de globe, and photograph every bit; a bit adventurous too(lol). I do collect toy cars & coins. I love to design things, no matter what.
    follow the link to one of my work, just to show you–never published!
    Give it a go and lemme know what you think about it..

  31. Carrie

    Thanks for replying, Nivin. I'm sorry for my late response. I'm always curious about were people are coming from, especially if they like to comment, like you do! I really enjoyed poking around your site last week. I'll stop by again this weekend for another peek.

  32. Jack Fussell
