In Life by Continental StaffLeave a Comment

This week at the Current we went back to the UK to explore the fascinating country of Wales, highlighted some very important work being done in Kenya, set about debunking travel myths, inched closer to end of our journey across the United States, and more! As always, catch up on what you missed with our Week in Review.

Wales

Wales was our Country of the Week. We took a look at its long and fascinating history from Celtic tribes and Roman rule all the way to an integral part of the United Kingdom. Discover what makes this country special HERE.

With our Travel Guide we covered some of the top destinations in the country. From the cities of the south such as Cardiff and Swansea to the wild, untamed north – there’s a lot to see. Get our guide HERE.

We also took a look back at our Currency Spotlight for the pound. As it remains one of the world’s foremost currencies, you can never know too much about it! Read more HERE.

Making a difference in Kenya

This past year Continental Currency Exchange sponsored an amazing girl named Mackenzie to go to Kenya and help make a difference in a local community. You can follow her journey through this fascinating culture with first hand accounts, pictures, and much more! Thanks to Mackenzie, Sarah, and everyone else at MeToWe for what they’re are doing to make this world a better place. See their journey HERE.

In the penultimate step of our journey across America, we arrived in the fascinating and wild Mountain States. An unbeatable selection of National Parks and natural sites (and some great cities nestled between them) make this part of the USA a must-see for any lover of the outdoors. Start planning your trip today HERE.

Every week we round up the biggest business stories from around the world. This week Australia experiences growth, Japan might join a regional economic group, a major free trade area in Africa, and more HERE.
