In Life by Continental StaffLeave a Comment

This week at the Current we traveled to jolly old England, visited some of the most impressive castles in the region, said hello to the Pan Am Games, and much more! As always, catch up on what you missed with our Week in Review.



England was our Country of the Week. We touched on Roman times, the Anglo-Saxon kings, the Normans, the Tudors, the Industrial Revolution, the World Wars and much more in the long and fascinating history of the country. See more HERE.

With our Travel Guide we covered the best places to go in England – from the South to the North. There’s a lot to see here in a relatively small package, which makes it a great country to visit. Get our guide HERE.

For our Currency Spotlight we took another look at the pound. As one of the most important major currencies in the world, there’s never a bad time to revisit it! Read more HERE.

11 Coolest Castles in Britain and Ireland


Whether they’re used as palaces, fortresses, prisons, or even schools; castles have always been one of mankind’s most impressive creations. Across Britain and Ireland alone, there are more cool castles than we could ever hope to include on one list – but that didn’t stop us from trying! Check out what we think the 11 coolest castles across the British Isles are HERE!

The Pan Am Games


The Pan Am Games are off to a great start, and Canada especially is making quite an impression! There’s still another whole week to go, and we’re looking forward to a spectacular finish! Feel free to share you Pan Am experiences with us HERE.


Every week we round up the biggest business stories from around the world in Headlines. This week deals are struck in Greece and Iran, continuing legal problems for Uber, the loonie is still low, and much more HERE.

Looking Ahead

Next week we’re heading south for some Caribbean sun. Beyond that, look for more of the great stories you’ve come to expect!
