To have a long-distance relationship is time consuming and you always have to work on it. In modern times especially young people want and need to travel a lot and their partners can’t always join them. So you either have to decide that you break up, stay home or, as in this case, you try your best to work it out. So if you are far apart, you need to find some ways to deal with it.
Sexuality and Gender become a more and more important issues in our modern society. Not just in communication, but also in a definition of personality, personal development and as part of growing up.

Airbnb has changed the whole tourism sector. The public administration in many countries helps the hotels to protect their business and also the real estate market by ruling out strict conditions to rent apartments for temporal use. The Spanish hotel chain Room Mate has turned it around and created Be mate, a competition for Airbnb. Room Mate will have to the end of this year 30 hotels all over the world, mostly in international cities like New York or Istanbul. The concept is different to a classical hotel. For the moment they do not have restaurants, they just offer breakfast. They do not want to enter in the star category system, but range in price in the luxury hotel level.

I love traveling, I always wanted to see as much as the world could offer. So, when I finished school, I decided to go to Ireland. Lots of my friends went to Australia and New Zealand, but I wanted to go somewhere else. I was 19 at that time and I didn’t want to plan the whole trip myself. Since I was a young girl, I liked horses and the riding sport, hence I wanted to work on a farm. I looked up some agencies online that would help me find a suitable one.
