Specialisms - British Council - LearnEnglish - Professionals In these days of mass tourism it’s difficult to find any destinations that have managed to escape the impact of the tourist industry. It’s harder still to find a beautiful palm tree-filled slice of paradise that has not been irrevocably changed by tourism. And yet Siwa, an idyllic Egyptian oasis, has somehow managed to embrace a very limited amount of tourism and is so far keeping its unique culture and way of life more-or-less intact. 1. 2. 3. 4.
West Country Tours ~ Cornwall, Devon & Stonehenge | British Tours Private car/minibus - 5 Days This tour takes you into a pace of life long gone elsewhere in England, quaint meandering lanes in sleepy villages, romantic associations with King Arthur and Guinevere, the vast wild spaces of Dartmoor, Exmoor and Bodmin Moor - dramatic and full of contrast with jagged granite tors, prehistoric crosses and stone circles where wild ponies and red deer roam. Visit the ancient city of Winchester, once capital of England, Salisbury with its 13th century Cathedral, Stonehenge, Britain's most important prehistoric monument and the exquisite gardens at Stourhead. Stay three nights in Devon or Cornwall to relax and explore the region: Exeter, Buckland-in-the-Moor, Castle Drogo, a granite castle overlooking the wooded gorge of the River Teign, St Mawes and Pendennis, across the estuary - both built by Henry VIII to fortify the coast line in reaction to the Pope's crusade against him.

IDEA International Dialects of English Archive Virgin: the world's best passenger complaint letter? Look at this Richard. Just look at it: [see image 1, above]. I imagine the same questions are racing through your brilliant mind as were racing through mine on that fateful day. What is this? Why have I been given it? You don’t get to a position like yours Richard with anything less than a generous sprinkling of observational power so I KNOW you will have spotted the tomato next to the two yellow shafts of sponge on the left. I know it looks like a baaji but it’s in custard Richard, custard. Anyway, this is all irrelevant at the moment. I’ll try and explain how this felt. Only you open the present and it’s not in there. Now I know what you’re thinking. Once it was regurgitated it was clearly then blended and mixed with a bit of mustard. By now I was actually starting to feel a little hypoglycaemic. It appears to be in an evidence bag from the scene of a crime. I was exhausted. Once cleared, I decided to relax with a bit of your world-famous onboard entertainment. Is that Ray Liotta?
Make Typographic Gift Wrap This year, I vowed to only make or buy handmade holiday gifts for my friends and family, and I've kept to it so far. But wrapping these gifts in commercial paper didn't seem to make much sense, so I wanted to create some handmade gift wrap to match. I happen to think a gift wrapped in newsprint is actually quite attractive, and love the look of text on a package, but wanted to put in a little more effort. So I came up with a cool option that's clean, masculine, and maintains the typographic look of the newsprint. Plus, it eliminates the need for any "to:/from" tags, as the recipient's name is right there in tasteful type. Once I figured it out, it was actually quite easy and quick - less than ten minutes per gift. Here's how to do it: Materials and Tools 1. 2. 3. 4a. 4b. 5. 6. Happy Holidays!
