Number 5 – An adopted immigrant in Scotland

This post reflected about when in 1991, I had no choice but to come over from Brazil. I admit that I knew very little about Scotland back then…I remember reading about the country in a magazine called ‘Speak Up‘ (for people wanting to learn the english language). It was about the Rangers x Celtic rivalry…

Number 4 – Global Airport Construction Update

This was a recent post from November that came courtesy of Passenger Terminal World magazine. Worth a read for sure.

Number 3 – Whisky in Comics

This was the most popular blog post on the Inside the Cask website in 2016 and reflects the amount of interest out there.

I hope quite a few people out there have found the jobs for them with a very small help from my side…the jobs page is visited regularly by a high numbers of visitors.
