‘My Cup of Char’ is a play on words and refers to the old British English expression of ‘My Cup of Tea’, a phrase for something or someone you like. You can find out more what inspires me here.
‘Char’ short for my first name Charlotte, and is also British slang for the herb ‘Chaa’ that tea originated from.
I am a tea-loving, British female solo traveller, working to live rather than living to work after quitting the corporate rat race in 2011.
Love heading off to far flung places, travelling and writing about my travels. Also enjoy contributing my skills for good and social change. I’m the UK Director and Global Programmes Director for a global grass-roots non profit, Nukanti Foundation and I support and work with Angeles de Medellin Colombian charity in an advisory role and maintain their website.
