How to Choose Great Broadband as an Expat in the UK

One of the first things I praised the UK for was it’s crazy fast Wifi. You’d think in major cities in the U.S. we’d have comparable coverage – but we don’t. As an expat in London, I was floored at how quick service was – and how affordable. No longer did I need to worry about the mobile bill and broadband in the apartment killing our utilities budget. It was a small expense compared to rent and other necessities. Not to mention, paired with a good VPN service, getting all…

Walking holidays in the UK do not end because it’s wintertime. I was shocked when our British friends suggested an outdoor getaway to Scotland in December last year! When it gets cold, I immediately think of fleeing to somewhere tropical. Not a place covered in snow. Or at least, I’m going to stay inside if there’s a blizzard outside. But I’ve learned that it’s wildly refreshing to spend time outdoors in the winter – especially as the short days make for less hours in the daylight. My mood was greatly…

A Hands-On Experience in the Algarve region of Portugal

Men and women dancing a traditional Portuguese dance in Loule, Portugal

The woman looked at me warningly as I hacked away at my bamboo reed. The attempt at making a bag clip was not going smoothly. Everyone else seemed to gracefully cut a long slit through the reed and had already begun sanding. I still was wedging my sharp blade bit by bit into the tough material, coming dangerously close to my thumbs. It’s safe to say I wouldn’t survive very long in rural Southern Portugal. Memories of the Algarve often included lots of fruity drinks, beach time with optional flocked…
