Sun, sea, sand and having a great time is usually at the forefront of most tourist’s minds. However, it can quickly turn into a holiday nightmare if they unknowingly break a law. Murder, theft, assault, and rape might be obviously forbidden, but there is a whole range of unusual crimes that can catch travellers unaware.

There are many jobs that allow you to make travelling part of your career and luckily I know experts in many fields. They have imparted their invaluable advice so that you can start earning money whilst travelling.
‘When you compare the price of a hand painted, made to measure kimono to a Western designer dress it is quite reasonable’. I had to agree with Sonoe, £1000 for the stunning silk gowns did seem like a bargain. She adjusted the kimono jacket I tried on, showing how I could wear it in two different ways.

Curious to know the truth, I devised a plan for a thorough investigation.
