The Whole world is a playground: 

There are many couples who take off around the world with nothing but a backpack to see how far they can get on a shoestring budget. Elaine and Dave from The whole World is a playground are not like these couples. They instead, work and live full time here in Ireland in finance jobs and use every free day that god sends to either plan or jet off on holidays. By combining public holidays with time off, they’ve managed to visit some far flung places. Here’s their interesting guide on how you can begin to see more countries without dropping all of your commitments. They also review plenty of different luxury offerings across the world from Hotels, bars and business class flight experiences.

Benny Lewis: The Irish Polyglot: 

Are you currently learning a new language or have aspirations of living abroad in the future? Then Benny Lewis is someone who you have to take a look at. He has been becoming confident and fluent with speaking languages since 2003. He has since published a best selling book on learning languages called “Fluent in 3 months”. The book focuses on getting out there and throwing yourself into whatever language you want to learn while being willing to make mistakes. He is also highly active across all social platforms in which you’ll find a community of fellow learners who can help you on your language journey. Here’s a video from his YouTube channel on how you can “optimise your hearing” when immersed in a foreign dialect.
