Travelling is an incredible concept. The idea that you can up sticks, move yourself to an unknown culture and immerse yourself in two days, two weeks or even two months of unadulterated learning is fantastic. It’s something we often take for granted. The fact that we have the ability to physically and financially travel, to gain knowledge, experience customs so far removed from our own, … Continue reading Meet the FCO Brand Ambassador – Emma Watkins
