Buy what you need, not what you want 5

For the past week I’ve been pretty busy, so there haven’t been any blog updates. I’m expanding one of my affiliate sites to other countries.

Why I travel 2

It’s funny how quickly something can turn around. Two weeks ago I was completely fed up with travelling.
