    I was very interested in the contents provided in this course but unluckily I discovered it too late, when the course was coming to an end. Had I enrolled when the course had just started, I would probably have enjoyed it more. In the end, I liked this course and I would recommend it if someone were to be travelling to potentially dangerous areas of the world or to someone who just travels extensively.
