Anglotopia has a new book out, and I think it’s going to become one of our cornerstone titles.

Again, we would like to thank … [Read more...] about New Anglotopia Book: 101 UK Culture Tips: A Field Guide to British Culture is now officially published
We’ve done some major updates to the official Anglotopia App. The app is still fundamentally the same, we’ve just updated the graphics, increased compatibility with various devices, and reorganized a few sections (and what they display).

So, both the iOS and Android versions of our … [Read more...] about Housekeeping: We’ve updated our free mobile app for iOS and Android

Over a decade ago, we published a guidebook called 101 Budget Britain Travel Tips, and it was a good seller for us. But at that time, we knew a lot less about publishing book and in the years after, the book became woefully out of date. So, we withdrew it from sale last year with the intention of rewriting it. Life got in the way, but I finally rewrote the thing over the last … [Read more...] about Anglotopia Alert: Introducing the Shiny New 2nd Edition of 101 Budget Britain Travel Tips!
