Today I realized that I have quite the collection of language learning and travel posts saved between Pinterest and Bloglovin. As I scrolled through them I thought, “Why am I keeping these to myself?” So I decided to change that and share a few of my favorite posts with you.
Here is a collection of resources for language learning and travel from around the web.
