Did you know that Switzerland has four official languages? There’s German in the north, Italian in the south, French in the west and Romansh in a very small area in the east of Switzerland.

Cuba. It’s a fascinating country. A country seemingly stuck in the past. Traveling to Cuba feels like traveling back in time. Back to a time when smart phones didn’t control our lives, cars were classy and colorful and music was playing in the streets. But not everything was better in the past. Here are 10 […]
In the spirit of Easter, I’ve got another egg-or-chicken-conundrum for you to ponder. What was first, language or culture? Does our thinking, our culture influence our language or does our language shape the way we think? Life is a journey, not a destination… Right? I recently read an article on how the language you speak […]
When I was younger, I never dared to travel solo. I had my designated travel buddy and we went everywhere together. Traveling solo was something for the dare-devils in this world and I definitely didn’t consider myself to be one of them. I think traveling solo seemed such an audacious option because of the bad […]
