Travel Tips / 30.08.2017

As someone who has spent many years travelling all over the world, my travel style is probably very different from most. Unlike many people who maybe take a one or two week vacation from work, I tend to take longer trips, finding a place to stay for a few months and using it as my base to explore other regions.

You see, the US is the centre of the movie industry, and so throughout the world, we're all very familiar with American culture. Anyway, over the years I've therefore spent a lot...
