Visit Toronto, Ontario Canada

    Posted in : Travel on by : John Comments:

    Travelling is great and when it’s a new place you have never been to before the adventure is so much better. You get to see the sights and meet new people, as well as experience first hand a new culture and be part of it briefly during your stay.

    If you have not already visited Canada, then it’s time you went and explored the small towns and villages around Toronto and see the awesome Canadian culture and history of those towns or places.

    Toronto is a bustling city and is akin to a concrete jungle when your coming off the highways into the main cities and joining the complex road systems. On the up though the walk way system is brilliant and the underpasses connect to the main train station easily and you can usually find your way around the city pretty easily.

    The weather in Canada is usually always severe because the lower part is mostly flat where high winds and adverse weather conditions can pick up fast and come down hard when you least expect it, such as flash rain in the rainy season and rapidly dropping temperatures in the winter when the snow storms hit. In addition to that expect the climate to be dry and temperatures rising fast in the summer; remember your sun screen.

    All in all you won’t regret your visit to Toronto, Ontario Canada.

    City Breaks to Historic Bath

    The summer is here and the weather is great, why not take some time away during the weekend for a city break in historic Bath.

    Whether your looking for an exciting weekend away with lots of places to see and explore such as iconic visitor attractions like Stonehenge or  Longleat Safari Park, or a foodie looking to indulge yourself on a range of different foods and drinks at the many food and drink establishments dotted around the city, or places to sit and enjoy a tea or coffee surrounded with some truly beautiful Georgian architecture, or maybe a beauty queen looking for a luxury spa retreat where you can relax and be pampered, Bath can offer the ideal weekend break for you.

    Perhaps your looking for the whole package and really want to let go and have fun for a couple of days, so why not book a hotel for two nights then hop on a train Friday night and have an exciting get away in Bath for the weekend.

    Affordable Stress-Free Weekend Breaks

    When you need to get away but don’t have time during the week, and/or you are on a tight budget, it might be worth staying within the same county (depending on where you live) and look around for places in the countryside that you can stay for the weekend.

    You can rent a log cabin for a couple of days on a farm in places like Rutland if you live within the Leicestershire area, and relax in a tranquil setting away from all the noise and stress of daily life; if you want to rent out a holiday cottage you may be subject to a minimum stay of about 7 day’s, so be aware of that.

    Or maybe you want somewhere by the sea, and you can stay at a B&B for a couple of day’s and spend time walking on the beach at night, and seeing the sights during the day. Also a good suggestion is to visit one of the local cafes during the quiet hour when they first open and relax over a great cup of tea or coffee, maybe even having something for breakfast also.

    It’s always best to find the most quiet places that cater to your needs, or a more visited location you love out of season when it’s cheaper to stay.

    Biking and Hiking Holiday

    Great Britain has a lot to offer, and if your feeling fit and active then going for a biking and hiking holiday across the vast and beautiful landscapes of this fine country would be an ideal holiday for you.

    On your bike you can truly appreciate the great views and stop to see the small towns and cities along the way depending on the route your taking to get to where you want to be.

    By taking a lightweight compact pop-up tent you can stop and pitch your tent wherever your brave enough to set up; if you think smart you will take only the essentials with you as you travel, and stock up with the stuff you need to eat and drink for a few day’s at the local shops of the towns you pass though.

    Once you reach your destination you can hike up the hills and trails and take in the breathtaking views from the mountains, see the vast countryside, glance at the lakes and more.

    The best thing about a biking and hiking holiday is that you set your own pace and go wherever you want without restrictions, for as long as your stamina and drive keeps going; make sure to save enough and plan well though for the different environments of places like Scotland and Wales.

    Should You Travel Abroad Or Local Holiday?

    With recent political events that divided half the country people are worrying too much about things that may never happen and the effect of their actions by not doing something or panic buying is only going to make things worse; perhaps it’s time for a nice holiday somewhere out the way.

    The question now is whether you travel abroad or find some place nice here that’s out the way of people, and just make the most of it. It’s probably best to have a holiday locally and give people peace of mind that everything is still ok at the same time.

    Where you go really depends on budget and the type of holiday you are looking for, such as a quite cottage by the sea or in the country, something for the weekend by the sea; or a yurt in the forest; you may even decide you want a family holiday over the weekend, which would be great because the weather has been so nice lately and not too hold either.

    So go on, take a local break and clear your mind for a few day’s or more.
