What will you watch this weekend? I was pleasantly surprised (and I admit I’m a little late to the party here) by two films I recently watched, these being #Maleficent and #Frozen.

Did you miss the #Olympics? Here are some more reasons to visit Rio. #Sun, #samba, the famous #Sugar Loaf… all of these things come to mind when thinking of #Rio de Janeiro.

Do you do #business in a multilingual context? Then you will know it is about more than just mastering different #languages. In order to successfully #communicate with a foreign business partner, colleague, or client, you also need to know how to #navigate between cultures. This can be really crucial in negotiations, where different countries might have different ideas on how to conduct them, and people might be insulted if you –unknowingly– cross a line.

It is always exciting when we book flights to visit somewhere. Finding the dates and booking the flights is just the starting point that allows us to work our year around our #adventures. As many of you will know, booking the #flights is the easy bit. We are flying from a #London airport early in the morning so we will need to travel down the night before and stay over so that we check-in on time.
