An Englishman Abroad … and the oldest intern in town?

Well, I’m heading off to experience being an intern abroad, Tenerife to be specific, so what better way to learn from this, and share the experience, than to commit to posting a regular blog. I’m sure there’ll be something in it for prospective interns (of any age) as well as for me, as I reflect on the whole thing. I plan to focus on a different topic each post, although there’s bound to be a few surprises too. So, from packing up and getting ready to go, through settling in, getting to work and trying to be productive, you should be able to get an idea of where I am on the rollercoaster to come.

Desiderius Erasmus… 16th century ‘humanist, scholar and reformer’. Not me.

The oldest intern in town? Well this is all happening in my early 50s after a ‘real job’ in the leisure industry and twenty years plus of university teaching – in fact that’s a real job too, but sometimes it’s difficult to argue the point. Another , career change? Well, yes you could say that, and there’s life in the old dog yet…
