In this new monthly series, I will be preparing a beginners guide to visiting popular destinations to allow you to fully enjoy your travel experience around the world. When I first started travelling I found it hard to locate authentic, real life accounts of what the country I wanted to visit was really like.
Since then I have created my own formula for researching a destination to ensure I am as prepared as much as possible. Of course, there will always be a few surprises and unexpected encounters along the way.
