Barbados was our Country of the Week. We looked into the history of this former British colony along with some of the cultural elements that make it unique. Learn more HERE.

Our Travel Guide jumped along the coastline, hitting up the best towns and beaches of Barbados along the way! Of course there’s more to the country than just that. Find out what we’re talking about HERE.

In this week’s Currency Spotlight we looked what makes the Barbadian dollar tick. From the history and value to the design – it’s all HERE.

We took a look back this week at the biggest adventure we’ve been on yet – a week long trek though the rugged Scottish Highlands! From crack of dawn flights and inclement weather to stunning views and snowcapped peaks, you can follow our journey all the way from beginning to end with PART 1 and PART 2.


Every week we round up the biggest business stories from around the world in Headlines. This week: the EU summit could have major ramifications for Europe and Britain, gold prices rise, and more HERE.
