A short entry about my digs.

A travel blog entry by fergysrambles


... as most people do and this is a good thing as she is indeed an English teacher here. Allow me to explain. The couple had taken the premises to run the school but as it has about seven bedrooms they decided to maximise the space and live downstairs whilst letting out the upstairs room.
