The United Kingdom is a country filled with history and with a huge ethnic and cultural diversity. Not just due to emigration, but also because of the native folks from the four states that constitute the country. The differences are such that each of those states deserve an article for themselves. But since they are… Continue reading Curiosities about the United Kingdom

Another article about what and how I packed for a trip, this time, my trip to Scotland. Even though this might seem like a boring article, it is always a good idea to see how another person prepared for a trip, and what went wrong (or not).

A few months ago I went to Eastbourne to visit some friends that were living there. London is definitely the most visited place in England, even all UK, but this time my destination was the south. Less crowded, more country side, more like “me”.
This was my second time in London, though the first one being described on this blog, because this experience really has to be shared, as it was quite traumatic for me in a good and a bad way, since the first minute… Some of you are already used to my “misadventures“, my Interrail is probably one of… Continue reading A chaotic second time in London
