Regional International Reference and Resources

Each region of the world is different and contain their own ‘ways of working’ with varying resources. The below regional resources are organised per region (includes notable retailers) and then for certain regions it is within the relevant country. These resources have been found from first hand experiences, research and also through my travels around the world – in short, these resources have been used in my travels. The below is only a selected few resources and for certain countries/cities – which I have visited or are planning to visit.

If you have come across any specific country or regional travel websites which have been fantastic in your travel plans, please feel free to contact me – I’d love to have a look.
