Athens (Photo credit: Arian Zwegers)I have done a lot of travelling. A lot. It is probably my absolutely most favourite thing. I love observing the culture, trying the food, learning about the history, exclaiming over the scenery.There are things that I have learned, however, and one of them is that I should…
There are lots of things that I don't like and they seem to fall into two categories - those things that I don't like but have to put up with, necessary evils, you might say, and those that I don't see any reason for putting up with at all. Today I'm going to whine about…
