Before I even get into this post….IF YOU ARE A NEW JERSEY HATER, JUST SKIP THIS POST. Just don’t even bother. I do not understand the hate. I don’t understand the jealousy. I don’t understand the distrust. HOWEVER, this article is a love letter to New Jersey so just go away if you don’t agree. … Continue reading Home Sweet Home Part 3: New Jersey
Dela what? Dela-who? DELA-WHERE!!! In August of 2005, a young impressionable 18 year old woman moved into a very small single room at the University of Delaware.

What if we visit a European Country that isn’t currently a member of the EU such as Switzerland, Andorra, the Channel Islands and even the Isle of Man and get caught out? What about if we travel further afield and need access to emails, social media, google maps etc? Also, what if you travel with a tablet or laptop and need access to it on the move when there isn’t a…
