Merry Christmas. Enjoy These Repeats 2013

This is now the fourth Christmas we have celebrated as editors of The Working Traveller and we have as little intention of being original or hard working on this day as we did in 2012, 2011 and 2010.

Review: The Gap-Year Guidebook 2012

What a treat it is to hold a brand new book in your hands. Second hand and electronic versions do not bring the same tactile sensation to be had with handling a new book, so it was a pleasure to be sent a copy of The Gap-Year Guidebook 2012.Read More
