By re-jigging your spending habits, you can spend the same amount of money (or less) and get so much more for it. Essentially having a luxury holiday for less cash.

There may not be a sign of snow, but this Christmas is still set to be a special one for me. I am now a dad, and with fatherhood comes a new outlook on the festive season. Yes it's fun to wail to Wizzard with a whiskey in hand, but above all, I want it to be a magical time for my son. It's this new responsibility that makes me feel obliged to remind the nation about the dangers of a drink too many.

We can hardly deny the omnipresence of English in every continent of our globalized world. Although I would not argue that English is colonizing other languages, I do feel that the diversity, cultural expressivity, and magical power of languages should be celebrated across the world.

Exploring the Philippines: Surprises in Cebu City

Cebu City is uncharacteristic of the white sand and crystal clear waters experience that otherwise dominates one's idea of the Philippines. From the Cebu International Airport it sprawls, though relatively compact in size, as an urban metropolis that contrasts with the smaller more rural or seaside towns.

Through small simple acts of kindness such as a smile, people will naturally further that kindness to others. I have observed on several occasions people buying gifts for one another for no other reason than as an act of friendship and kindness. Surely we must be an inherently good species?

Moving abroad is a scary prospect. The fear of the unknown is, in some way, present for everyone - even those whose intrepid spirits drive them around the globe. However, it is also exhilarating and, often, intoxicatingly addictive.

Sup. I am back from the Edinburgh Comedy Festival. (I am aware they do more than comedy, but frankly I have never seen a show there not starring a comedian so refuse to admit it, sorry dancers/ actors/ acrobats.)

Many years passed before I realised you can "travel" in your own country, that we are actually surrounded by exotic locations, places we've never seen and dialects we don't understand...

A wolf was right in front of our car... We now expected to be its dinner, served in a forest and teared to pieces, raw. I kept my eyes shut, not wanting to see its claws scratching our windows and waving 'hello' and 'adieu' to us, all in a flash.

Nope this isn't a diatribe on how Trip Advisor has too much power, or not enough. Nor is it a rant on how hotels and bed & breakfast don't have enough of a say on the matter.
