Feb 24, 2015 - In England überleben mit kleinem Budget

Wer einen längeren Aufenthalt nach England plant, jedoch nur ein begrenztes Budget zur Verfügung hat, der sollte die Tipps und Tricks kennen, wie man auf der Insel um die Runden kommt. Es braucht gar kein unfassbar riesiges Budget, um die Reise zu einem unvergesslichen Erlebnis erster Güte werden zu lassen. Was es lediglich braucht ist Köpfchen. Wer nach England reist sollte das Land vor der Reise schon einmal auschecken. Bei Preisvergleichen mit Lebensmitteln im Supermarkt wird man feststellen, dass Nahrung auf der Insel wesentlich teuer...

Feb 18, 2015 - Durch das Leben in der Gastfamilie Englisch lernen

Wer auf eine Reise ins Ausland geht, der möchte natürlich etwas erleben. Neben dem Erleben kann man auf Reisen aber auch immer etwas lernen zum Beispiel kulturelle Unterschiede zwischen der Heimat und dem Fremden Land. Dazu gehört natürlich auch die Sprache des Reiselands. In England ist es sehr populär seine Reise bei einer Gastfamilie zu verbringen – sei es eine Sprachreise oder auch ein Auslandspraktikum. Neben einer Unterkunftsmöglichkeiten bedeutet der Aufenthalt bei einer Gastfamilie noch viel mehr: Man wird in den Familienalltag...

Feb 3, 2015 - Die Bezahlung in Großbritannien

Wer sich prinzipiell dafür interessieren würde, für einen Work and Travel Aufenthalt, ein Praktikum oder generell zum Arbeiten nach England zu gehen und für einen längeren Zeitraum dort zu leben, hat sich mit großer Wahrscheinlichkeit auch schon einmal Gedanken darüber gemacht, wie die Bezahlung im englischsprachigen Ausland wohl aussehen würde. Da sich die Lebenshaltungskosten in England zum Teil doch sehr von den deutschen unterscheiden, ist das auch durchaus sinnvoll. Immerhin muss man neben der Vermittlungsgebühr, die anfällt, wenn man...

Jan 30, 2015 - Englisch lernen für Sparfüchse

Das Beherrschen von mindestens einer Fremdsprache ist in unserer heutigen Gesellschaft schon lange zum Standard geworden. In der Schule lernt man Englisch, Französisch, Italienisch oder Spanisch, an Volkshochschulen werden neben diesen auch noch exotischere Sprachen angeboten, im Berufsleben wird es auch immer wichtiger. Wer nach der abgeschlossenen Schul- oder Ausbildung nicht mindestens ein gutes Englisch beherrscht, wird bei Bewerbungen von potentiellen Arbeitgebern in den meisten Fällen noch weitaus kritischer behandelt, als andere...

Nov 22, 2014 - Day trip to London

Went to the Tower of London today and we were delighted to see most of the poppies still there. A truly magnificent sight. Double bonus a nice Frenchman gave us free tickets in to the Tower - nice saving at 20 pound each! (no pound sign on my keyboard!) Saw the crown jewels but not overly impressed with the displays inside the tower. An amazing big building though.

Nov 2, 2014 - Fly home

The end of an amazing and magical trip! We have seen such a tiny part of this vast sub-continent. It leaves you wanting more despite the huge contrasts and obvious issues it has to deal with, But what country in the world does not have it's own particular problems? The people we have met have been so welcoming and friendly and that will definitely be a lasting memory for me. 3 weeks away however, does mean I am looking forward to going home and seeing all the family. It was a poignant last week having heard of the loss of Harry, my lovely...

Nov 1, 2014 - First weekend trip to London

Caught X90 bus from Oxford for 18 pound return. Locals advised X90 is best option to get into city centre. No need to book. Leaves every 15minutes from Gloucester Green bus depot in middle of Oxford. Happens to be right near my work office. Has several convenient stops. Baker st was closed due to road works so we got off at Marble Arch which was very convenient for tube access to covent garden. Bought a full day ticket as had to change lines but turned out we didn't need to. Hard to be sure about that. Need to get an Oyster card!

Oct 29, 2014 - London

My overnight flight from Philly landed at London's Heathrow Airport at 9am, 30 minutes ahead of schedule. However, the gate crew and customs weren't ready so the time savings was lost. LHR is incredibly expansive with five separate terminals. Over 70 million people pass through Heathrow annually, making it one of busiest airports in the world. Somehow they manage all this traffic with only two runways. There's a continuous stream of takeoffs and landings; I'm told one per minute, 24/7. I made my way through the maze of buildings and...

Oct 13, 2014 - 0º0'0"

On a very rainy day we met a London Walkss guide at the London Tower for a trip to Greenwich. These days the tower moat is decorated with thousands of poppies, one for every British soldier who died in World War I. An Impressive sight. We boarded a ship and sailed under the Tower Bridge. The river was a busy place when ships were smaller and their goods did not come in containers, but for many years now the Thames is the least used river flowing through a big city. All the warehouses and docks were left to crumble and only in the 1980's did...

Oct 12, 2014 - chocolate tour

When I was a small child I was always sick. Today truant authorities would have come after my parents because i was never in school. I missed 2/3 of the year in 2nd grade. My best friend Cynthia brought home my books and took back the homework my mom helped me complete. She taught me to read and write; multiply and, divide. I was especially likely to be sick at holiday times - Valentine's Day, Easter, Christmas, Halloween would find me in bed running a fever. What do these holidays have in common? - chocolate! After my chocolate allergy was...
