Hello, and welcome to those of you who have recently signed up.
It’s been a busy time for us over the last couple of months, which explains why there was no September newsletter. Sorry. But we’ve managed to add a little bit of content to keep things ticking over.
Proud Britons would agree that the UK is a country of superlatives. This month’s Quick Quiz looks at five of them, with a focus on height. Have a go and see if you can tell us where five of Britain’s highest are to be found!
Our latest Pic of the Week is from an long-standing contributor to BE, David Stanley. His travels have taken him to many weird and wonderful places all over the world. Earlier this year he was in Angola, where he photographed two North American T-6 Harvards outside the country’s National Military History Museum in Luanda.
The photo before that was a little closer to home: St Paul’s Bay. Not the famous one on the Maltese coast, though—this one is off Rhodes. (What was it with St Paul and storms at sea?)
Meanwhile, the BE forum provides information on a wide range of expat issues, as well as the opportunity to socialise with like-minded people all around the world. Join in the fun here!
Would you like to write for British Expat? Sorry, we don’t pay for articles but if you have a website we’ll link to it in the author’s blurb below any of your articles we publish. We use all sorts of content as long as it’s useful and/or interesting to our readership.
Besides articles, we also publish quick trivia quizzes—five questions about any subject. So, if you’d like to write for us but don’t feel like producing a literary masterpiece, then why not try writing a quickie quiz about your city, country, or even your hobby? Please use our contact form to get in touch.
Amazon don’t just do books, you know. We’ve teamed up with them to bring you the ultimate in online shopping—from a micro SD card to a garden shed! A great way to do your shopping online, especially if the shops aren’t up to much in your part of the world.
