Your Native English Just Won’t Be Good Enough

When I first started travelling abroad I made a huge mistake that dramatically changed my quality of life. It’s all to do with being a native English speaker, but not being able to communicate. The problem is two-fold and it’s important. If you are going on holiday to “Europe” then you should think about whether Read more about Your Native English Just Won’t Be Good Enough[…]

We Will Rock You – Skalne Miasto and Bastei in a day

“It’s only three hours from Berlin…this is an experience we’re never going to forget, just take it all in”.

I’d heard about the fairy pools for a long time, and had seen some Read more about Scotland Part 3 -Wildlings[…]

Scotland Part 2 -North of the Wall

European cities don’t usually have much of an effect on me anymore, they are all very nice and very pretty (for the most part), but even Florence didn’t seem to make me go “wow” like so many people said that it would…although that’s perhaps because I’m some uncultured heathen. Edinburgh, however, was truly great. We Read more about Scotland Part 2 -North of the Wall[…]

One of the things that I think most of us are guilty of, “travellers” or not, is not exploring your own country. Yes, it isn’t as romantic as jetting off into the sunset to visit some far-flung part of the world, but often you can find the things that you are looking for just next Read more about Scotland Part 1 – We’re going to build a great wall[…]
