Are you Still Looking to Book a Holiday this Summer?

Posted in : Holidays, Travel on by : admin Comments:

The summer is quickly coming to an end and before we know it, children will be going back to school. If you haven’t yet booked a summer getaway, you need to think about getting it done soon – time is running out. There are much fewer last minute deals around these days, especially during the summer, so you might begin to struggle. You will most likely still be able to find some options, especially if people have cancelled their trips last minute. This can be a great way of finding some good deals that will offer you great value for money, and the excitement of not knowing where in the world you are going until the last minute. If you are struggling to find last minute deals, why not go somewhere in the UK, camp, or hire out a camper van? This can give you a sense of adventure, and it will be great for the kids.

Picking a Destination for an Extended Trip

Posted in : Travel on by : admin Comments:

An extended trip is an exciting prospect, whether you’ve travelled the world or this is your first adventure. What is always key is getting the destination just right. You will need to make sure you pick somewhere that has plenty to offer and will adhere to your interests, so that you can really make the most of your trip and enjoy every moment. When researching destinations, it’s always a good idea to think about what you enjoy doing. Make a list – it could be anything, from going to beautiful beaches to walking, hiking and spotting wildlife. You can then research parts of the world that correspond to this. Another major consideration is budget. If you want to travel for a long time, then think about sports that are going to be more budget friendly. There is also the option of working as you go if you set your heart on somewhere more pricey.

Holiday to South Holland

Posted in : Travel on by : admin Comments:

When people think of Holland, many think of Amsterdam, though it has gained a reputation for sex, drugs and gaydom; more so than the actual culture. But there is so much more to Holland than Amsterdam, and if you travel further down south towards the Belgium side, you will find a beautiful culture that is just waiting to be explored; the more south you travel the less English will be spoken, so take that into account. Holland is an unusual country filled with eccentric thinkers who are always finding new ways to think. The style of their buildings is typically Dutch, but the urban street is an amalgamation of Americanised style, British Style and Dutch, perfectly blended together to create a unique style all in its own. It’s also a country obsessed with Bikes, and making the most of how to use those bikes; and how to get things on a bike from the supermarket and cycle home with it. Train travel is average and cheaper than in England, and with a better service, but trains are more for long range travel, rather than short distances in the areas further south.  Bear in mind that you have to buy the…

Health Advice for Travel to India

Posted in : Holidays on by : admin Comments:

India has been growing in popularity as a tourist destination over the last decade or so. It is vital to make sure that routine vaccinations are up to date and that travellers are protected against hepatitis, tetanus, typhoid and malaria which are common in many areas of India. Most people will take a small first aid kit on holiday just so they have a ready and easily accessible supply of plasters and antiseptic cream for any small cuts and grazes and paracetamol for some pain relief. However, do not travel to India without taking some kind of tropical strength DEET based insect repellent. If you do get bitten, then apply cooling bite cream to relieve the itchiness. A course of diarrhoea treatment tablets and re-hydration tablets are also recommended additions to the first aid kit. Hopefully, they won’t be used but, if they are needed, then they are easily available to hand.
