How Long Andorran Citizens can Stay in the USA

As important as their own identity, sovereignty and autonomy is to their own citizens, independent principality nations such as Andorra and Monaco often present a very unique case when dealing with matters of immigration, global classification and even for travelling arrangements. As if just any sort of travelling isn’t enough of a nightmare of its own, travellers from these principalities such as Monegasques, Andorrans and the like often find themselves falling in between what is far from clearly defined guidelines for making travel arrangements.

Getting Your Gym Buddy to Be as Committed as You Are

Look, since I’m somewhat of an advocate for avoiding excuses such as not having a gym membership preventing you from achieving your fitness goals, “gym” in this instance is used as a verb and can be interchanged with anything that involves the act of exercising with one or more other people with whom you share the common interest of working on your fitness. For those who consider themselves lucky enough to have a gym membership however, it’s hard enough getting regular exercise when you only have yourself to push you to realise your fitness goals, but if you are that committed already, well done.
