A little fact about me...I LOVE to travel. I don't just mean that I really enjoy heading to Mexico for a little R&R (though that sounds lovely), but I really, truly, love to TRAVEL.
I like to spend weeks in each place, and really start "living" there. In 2010, right after I finished up with grad school, I spend almost 3 months traveling, largely on my own. While many of my travels have been completely non-SLP related (turtle conservation in Costa Rica, anyone?), I've also been able to utilize my expertise on a few occasions. I taught English to Tibetan refugees living in India, and helped open up some new clinics for autism in Bosnia.
Ah, to be young and childless again.
Lately, I've resigned myself to the reality that my jet-setting now consists of a flight to Florida to visit family while trying to pacify a toddler and an infant. So fun.
And so, I fulfill my wanderlust by living vicariously through a few SLPs (and one OT) whose Instagram accounts remind me about that great, big world out there. (Sigh).
Here are my 7 Must-Follow Instagram Accounts for SLPs Who Love to Travel.
1. Adventures in Speech Pathology
This Aussie SLP has a great mix of travel and therapy photos on her account.
While her account doesn't have as many SLP highlights as some of the others, her collection of international travel photos are A-MAZING.
3. Speech Therapy Factory UAE
A Brazilian SLP working in Dubai. Enough said.
4. Julia K
It's also worth checking out her blog www.thetravelingtraveler.com if you're an aspiring travel SLP.
5. Tiny Van Big Living
To be fair, this is actually an OT. But, how can I not drool over the idea of watching Aurora Borealis from the comfort of a van-home?
6. Sarah Breshears
Follow Sarah as she takes on the Pacific Northwest as a travel SLP.
7. Kari Fast
A great account highlighting ventures as a travel SLP (and some good grub)!
If you've made it this far and you want to read more about my travels, feel free to head on over to my old (circa 2010), unpolished travel blog: www.travelblogkristin.blogspot.com. Some favorite posts are:
-Kwa Heri Tanzania
-Rishikesh and the Ayurvedic Massage
Let me start with how Kiwi Speech got its name. I currently live in Pittsburgh, but it took living in a few different states and countries to get here. One of which (and the one that is truly "home"), was New Zealand. When I was first starting my business, I wanted a name that represented who I was, but was also catchy and kid-friendly. A person from New Zealand is colloquially referred to as a "kiwi", hence, Kiwi Speech was born.
