What I’m doing 10 months on from becoming non-nomadic

After spending most of my life (since the age of 17) travelling, in April last year (9 years on from when I took my first trip) I decided to return to Scotland and officially become non-nomadic.

I’ve been on the lookout recently for an alternative international calling app after repeated reception and call quality issues with my usual port of call – Skype. I had also tried using the ‘old school’ international calling card method, but it was often a pain to find a shop that sold them where I am here in Bolivia, or I […]

What do you think of All-Inclusive style holidays?

Photo credit; What do you think of all-inclusive style holidays? Do you think they’re a good thing? Too expensive? A relaxing break? Do they stop you from experiencing the local food/drink/culture?
