Why I Was Almost Denied Entry to Ireland

Visas. They're a complicated matter. I'm lucky and privileged in that I hold a Canadian passport that allows me to visit most countries as a tourist "visa-free."

Ride Share your way through Europe – A Blablacar Review

Blablacar: The Site Blablacar is a rideshare website, or "carpooling community" as they call it. The interface is surprisingly simple; put in where you're leaving from and where you want to go and if there are people offering rides, they'll show up.
