New Photo Contest: Best Nature Shot in your Host Country (All entries win free premium membership!)

April 20, 2015


One of the best parts of living abroad is to explore the nature (flora and fauna) of your host country:  a day trip into the mountains if you live in Switzerland, a weekend safari trip if you live in Tanzania, a group tour to the sand dunes if you live in Abu Dhabi, a car trip to the rainforests if you live in Costa Rica, etc.

Each country has their own unique offerings of nature.

What is on offer in your host country with regards to nature?

December 11, 2014


One of the best parts of living abroad is to travel around to tropical locations, namely places with amazing beaches that you would never usually have the opportunity to go to if you were still living in your home country. So beautiful, so much sun, so relaxing!

Where are you going this December holiday break?
