For me, one of the highlights of my time in Italy has been travelling around; working 5 days a week mean I quite literally live for my weekends off, often jumping on a train straight from work on a Friday afternoon. Italy is such a diverse country with endless places to visit and recommendations, it...

People normally ask the same things when I tell them that I’ve been to Peru: 1. Wow, was it safe? and 2. Did you go to Machu Picchu?  This always brings me to the same response, Peru is extremely diverse. Before going to Peru I hadn’t really considered how big it actually is, sounds...
