The Working Traveller is Three Years Old – Here’s What We’ve Learnt

On Wednesday, May 15 The Working Traveller turned three. Last year we took some time for reflection on what we had learnt in the first two years of The Working Traveller but the piece got rather long so it was split into two. Rather than place two such introspective pieces close together I thought to run part two close to our third anniversary, this having the added advantage of giving me a day off when this date came around again this year: up there for thinking, down there for dancing, as they say.Read More

Travel Blogging Until They Die

Some travel blogs are abandoned mere days into a trip once it is realised how much work is involved and time taken away from the enjoyment of travel.

A new travel blog

Our New Site:

We hope you enjoyed your New Year celebrations. With a lot still to do before we are ready to leave for Bangkok we had a quiet one this year. One of the tasks I wanted to complete is the launch of our new site

This is the fourth website we have launched with minimal fanfare since we returned from our Middle East trip 18 months ago. Like the others we want this one to go quietly about its business and eventually establish itself into the site we want it to be in a few years’ time.

Unlike our other sites TravelPhotoFacts will not deal exclusively with an aspect of working abroad such as free volunteer work, gap years or career breaks, though we will occasionally drop some of that in there too...

Christmas Repeats 2012

Merry Christmas. Enjoy These Repeats 2012

Once again we serve up cold second hand fare in what is becoming a Christmas tradition to rival that posh woman who seems to be on the TV every year. This started a couple of years ago when in an effort to do something Christmassy while putting as little effort into the task as possible I came up with the inspired idea of writing about things I had already written about.Read More
