Thoughts on Brexit

Written 1st July:

I feel like I have had a dark cloud over my head for the last week… the news that 52% of UK voters chose to leave the EU fills me with sadness. I can’t believe how different my values seem to be from that much of the rest of the population. I don’t understand why the UK (thanks to 52% of those who voted) is choosing to turn away from its nearest neighbours; it seems to be a completely backward step. To be honest, I feel completely ashamed to be British right now. Those of you who do not live in the UK but are aware of this news, please do not think all British people want to leave the EU and build up walls. My only hope left is that it gives a much more fundamental shake up to the way our society works, to change it for the better. I’m not feeling very hopeful of that right now but I’ve got to hope, and do what I can in the meantime.

  1. Hi Emily,

    With not a lot better to do this evening I was reviewing the icons on my iPad and came across your blog. The last time I looked at it I think you were entering China from Russia.

    Anyway, I am prompted to comment on Brexit. The turnout for the referendum was 72%, so in fact Brexit support was a mere 37% of the electorate. It is by no means certain that a majority wish to leave the EU. And there’s a long way to go yet. Don’t give up hope.

  4. Segway Verona offers tours that make sure you will enjoy a fun and immerse experience of our beloved city. We combine Segway, our innovative way of transportation, with tours in the historical city centre. Through our explorations of 1 or 2 hours, we will bring you to the most breathtaking spots, so that, if you do not stay long in Verona, we make sure that you see all of the unmissable sights!

    Segway is really easy to use! It is so intuitive that it feels like an extension of the human body. To understand why, consider this: if you stand up and lean forward, so that you are out of balance, you will intuitively put your leg forward. Segway works the same way: to move forward or backward, the rider just leans slightly in such direction, and Segway will follow your movements. It is also easy to turn right or left, since the rider just has to push respectively Segway’s handlebar.

    Segway is safe. Anyone over the age of 12 can join our tours, except for pregnant women. Apart from these cathegories, we encorage people of every age to try Segway, because this self-balancing object can really make your experience in Verona much more delightful! In fact, if it is hot, you will enjoy some fresh air and avoid to sweat; if it is cold, you will have the possibility of staying outside the least possible time. It is proved that our 2 hours tours show you what you will see in 6 hours walking!

    All the tours start with a little training on how to use Segway, because for us safety is the priority. However, we experienced that it takes just a little practice to master on Segway! There are no required skills and, in particular, no need to be able to bicycle. There will always be a tour leader with you, guiding the whole group, so that you can enjoy the view and the tour of Verona. Audioguides (available in different languages) will provide the information you need to fully comprehend the history and architecture of our main monuments, squares and buildings.

    In particular, our 2 hours tour will show you: Piazza Bra, one of the biggest squares in Italy, with the Arena, the famous Roman amphitheatre; we will then take Via Oberdan in order to see Portoni Borsari, one of the ancient entrance of the Roman city; we will firstly explore Piazza Erbe and secondly Piazza Dei Signori, two squares full of symbols and buildings with enchanting beauty, and then see Arche Scaligere. Heading to the Duomo, Verona’s Cathedral, we will pass by Santa Anastasia, next to the Conservatory of music; after that, we will have a break on Ponte Pietra, the bridge with the breathtaking view of the Roman Theatre and San Pietro Castle (and much more). On our way back, we will stop at Juliet’s house, so that you don’t forget to take pictures and write your names on the walls! We will conclude our tour with Castelvecchio, the Scaligeri castle and enjoy its amazing view of Verona.

    People who went on tours with us really appreciate our flexibility: we do not have fixed tour’s hours, so we can arrange the time that fits the best. Moreover, we try to adjust the path according to your preferences, spending less time on spots you have already seen and dedicate more on your favourite sights.

  5. Когда создавала сайт, почти не предполагала, будет ли он трафиковым или нет. На нем я реализовывала свою личность – это было основным. Мой сайт предполагает в большем женскую аудиторию, в рунете таких миллионы. Магазин молодежной одежды – распространенная, конкурентная среда. На старте я была наполнена слепым оптимизмом, творила сайт красивым, особенным, уникальным. Мне все казалось легко и просто. Увы, посещалка практически нулевая, прибыль, естественно, тоже. Приятель нашел сеошников, которые раскрутят мое чудо. Обрадовалась.

    Конечно, сама стремилась продвинуть сайт, хоть чуточку повысить спрос. Отнюдь, не пошло. Пришла к выводу, что это должно быть точно организованно, в комплексе, в системе. И сдалась.

    Обратилась к специалистам . Во первых порадовал простой интерфейс этого сайта. Прочитала ответы на все свои вопросы. Бесплатная консультация простым языком, разъяснение до мелочей. Я заказала тариф «статейный», он самый продвинутый. Отличный результат на моем сайте! Если Вы задумаете заказать продвижение сайта в ТОП – обращайтесь сюда, не пожалеете. Да, и еще, был бонус – приятная скидка. Цены доступные, честные. Компетентные, отличные специалисты, свой подход. Учтут особенность именно Вашего сайта, повысят его интерес, привлекут клиентов. В моем случае, доход зависит от посещаемости. Так что, эти ребята – гарантия моего бизнеса в сети.
