Evernote goes to the Galapagos (and the Amazon)!

One of the biggest reasons that I use Evernote is the ability to quickly organize and document my ever changing life. This summer, my side and I spent two weeks traveling through Ecuador. This included a trip to the Galapagos and the amazon. Before we left, I prepared all of our travel documents in an Evernote notebook.

More than 700 educators attend the fair and compete for 1000 placements around the world – from Doha, Qatar to Mexico City. In its own way, the fair is an international feeding frenzy (or better termed a “rat-race” by one of the recruiters) where everyone is jostling for position to get interviews with the best international schools. I was fortunate enough to attend this past February, and had a wonderful time talking with recruiters and fellow participants. When I...
