The first foreign holiday I ever went on was a holiday to the Algarve when I was 14 years old. Yes, that was a while ago before the place became cool. But when I was there, there were some amazing sights to see. In the last few years, the Algarve has seen a spike in interest as people seek out underrated and underappreciated parts of the globe.
A few months ago, I was in London for a visit. I’m not sure if you had heard about me doing the Virgin London Marathon? Oh, you didn’t? Well, now you know and you can still sponsor me for completing it (the money goes to Enham Trust who are amazing). But here is some stuff that I wish I had known about food before I had gone.
What are your travelling dreams? Everyone has somewhere they’d rather be, or something they’d rather be doing in another part of the world. But, no matter what your travelling dreams are, the sad reality is that you might not achieve them. Everyone is so focused on the other things in life that they might need to buy or pay for, that it can feel as though money is rather sparse after the first or second week of the month.
Guernsey is seeing a real increase of interest recently after the movie The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society hit the cinema. But what can you actually do there? Well partner, you came to the right place to find out about other places.
Russia isn’t necessarily the first place that people think of when they want to go travelling. If you follow international politics at all, you might feel a little put off by some of the news you hear from Russia. However, it’s still a fascinating and fun place to visit, just like many other countries that might not have the best reputation when it comes to their leadership. Russia’s cities are some of the most colourful and interesting, and the capital of Moscow is a must-see. With lots of history, beautiful architecture and the ease of walking around, it’s a top pick for many people.
Getting a good day out can be hard sometimes. Where should you go? What is there to do? Wonder no more! I’ve done the research for you so that you can enjoy an epic day out. This time I’ve had a look at what to do in Wiltshire. Now the big question is, who will you take? Your kids? Your partner? Or will you take someone on a first date?
After the success of my last Let’s Go post about looking for inspiration trips and days out, I have decided to look at another area, Berkshire. But what can you can get up to in the county that is home to Windsor Castle? What does the Queen do for fun? I have no idea, but it could be anything really. But I know what you can get up to.
After the recent success of me going to London for the VLM and not dying in the process, I’m excited to start travelling. It may be short, it may be far, I don’t know. But what I do know is that I plan on exploring. The thing is, in other to explore, you need to have some sort of idea where you are going. Today, I’m looking at Bedfordshire and what you can do there.
For those who would rather not travel by plane, but still want to see what the world has to offer, road trips are one of the most practical options. You get to see the changes in landscape up close, you can stop wherever you want and explore on foot, but also, you are in control of where you want to go. You’re not bound by timetables, delayed flights, and all of the other issues most backpackers have to endure. This is why it’s so important for you to be as comfortable as possible. You are going to be spending a lot of time in the car, so how can you make this more comfortable than a cramped flight in coach class?
The opportunity to travel the world doesn’t happen very often, so if you’ve been offered the chance, you will not want to turn it down! However taking time out to travel as a homeowner, presents the dilemma as to what you will do with your house whilst travelling? You could simply lock it up and go, but you run the risks associated with an empty property such as burglary, also you will still have your mortgage and bills to pay no matter where in the world you are.
