À propos de moi

CURRENT MISSION

Hitchike around Taiwan, improve my Mandarin.

ABOUT ME

Hi, I'm Ollie.

I'm a highschool Maths and Physics teacher from Melbourne Australia. I'm pretty passionate about education and I have a blog and podcast about teaching, you can check them both out at www.ollielovell.com/podcast :)

Travel is a big part of who I am too . In 2009 I spent 8 months travelling, hitchiking, and CouchSurfing around Europe and the experiences that I had there played a big part in developing me into the person that I am now (I was 18 then). 2010 (Dec) saw me start a 2 month trip through India that profoundly affected me, and in 2012 I went on a 6 month Uni exchange to Copenhagen which was also a wonderful experience. In 2014/15 I spent 2.5 months in China and Taiwan working on my Mandarin.

PHILOSOPHY

Generosity. Balance. Communication, Love and Compassion.

"To act morally is not a constraint, but a liberation!"

"They say it's the last song, they don't know us you see. It's only the last song if we let it be."-Selma (acted by Björk) from Dancer in the Dark..

A detachment from ego can be a powerful thing.
