My favourite room in the house – in any house we own – is the bedroom. I feel like I spend 80% of my life sleeping or daydreaming about sleep, so I guess that really is only a natural thing (I’m aware I was possibly […]

Taking a vacation in the UK is a big goal for people in the US and Europe. They see the British people and their aristocracy on TV and love the idea of checking it out for themselves. That helps to explain why the country welcomes hundreds of thousands of tourists every summer – it’s not the best place to go if you enjoy lazing around on beaches and getting a tan, however, the nation is steeped in history and it once had the largest empire on the planet. So, there are many interesting sights and things to see during your stay. Today, I’m going to discuss three cities that all travellers should consider.
Lots of people overlook Wales and Scotland when they visit the UK. I think that’s because it’s quite a long drive from the capital. However, you can catch a plane for next to nothing if you book at the right time. Edinburgh is a beautiful city where the wealthiest Scottish people reside. There is a lot of stunning architecture and ancient history to discover. Tourists can buy tickets for castle tours and more. It’s an essential stop on any serious UK trip, and so it’s sensible to make arrangements as soon as possible. Just bear in mind that Scotland is usually a little colder than England. So, you’ll need to wrap up warm.
Birmingham is England’s second largest city, and most overseas travellers never pay it a visit. The location is home to one of the largest shopping districts in the country. Anyone who wants to pick up the latest fashions during their stay should check out the Bullring. There is also a fantastic nightlife in Birmingham where you will find almost every different type of music. Thanks to Jamaican immigration during the 1950s, the city has a vibrant culture. Indeed, the influence of Jamaican traditions is noticeable everywhere. If you want to meet some real English people and find out what their lives are like, Birmingham is a vital stop on your trip.
London is a stunning city that’s home to the Queen and Parliament. Prices are often higher than anywhere else in the country. For that reason, it makes sense to find homestay accommodation rather than booking a hotel. At the end of the day, you’ll need as much cash as possible to get around and purchase attraction tickets. Nothing is more fun than taking a boat trip down the Thames river with a tour guide. You can also spend time checking out the best views of the city from The London Eye. Taking a stroll to Buckingham Palace doesn’t cost anything, and you might even get to see the Lady herself.
Whenever you fly to the UK, make sure you visit all the places mentioned in this post. If you overlook any of these areas, you’re going to miss out on an exciting experience. I hope you’ve benefited from this article, and that you will now have a better time during your trip. At the end of the day, the UK is an important country on the global scene. I think more people should take the time to spend a few nights there. Enjoy!

Going off the beaten track and seeing the last untouched remnants of planet earth is a must-do activity for those who are sick to death of tourists. It is a must-do activity for those who don’t want to spend this summer lounging by a pool by day and propping up a bar at night. It’s a must-do activity for those that actually want to see and feel the true wonders our world still has to offer. So, if there’s one activity you do this year, let it be seeing the beauty of the untouched world. Below you can find information on some of the best places that fall into this category to visit.
There are parts of Thailand that are hugely developed and full of tourists year in, year out. But there are also some parts of it that are not. Some parts of it are still relatively untouched, and to really experience Thailand, these are the parts of it that you should visit. One such place is Myanmar, where you can visit the Tanintharyi region. Here you can see what is probably the most undisturbed areas that the jewel of Southeast Asia has to offer — just make sure not to disturb the peace when you’re there.
North Africa is another such place where life has changed very little over recent years, so is a place that you should most definitely visit. Specifically, the Mt Toubkal region of Morocco, where the Berber people call home, is the place that you should next visit as you go off the beaten track. And if you want to do your bit for charity whilst you’re at it, you can join the Morocco Mount Toubkal Trek. This is a long weekend charity challenge where funds can be raised for the charity of your choice. So, taking such a venture need not only benefit you, but can benefit others too.
Petra, in Jordan, is one of the most untouched areas left on earth, despite being so close to civilisation. In Petra, there are no cities or suburbs. There are no cars polluting the air as people race to get to and from work. And there are sure not a lot of tourists flocking there year in year out. And this is surprising, seeing as though the archaic tombs that lie there give a glimpse into times gone by and that the whole area has been deemed a World Heritage Site.
Argentina is home to many of the wonders of the world — one of it’s biggest wonders is Purmamarca. This is small town in the country and is the location of the Seven Coloured Mountains; also, it has been, for it’s whole existence, a place that has been untouched and untrammelled on by tourists.
There are still some amazing places to visit and amazing things to see in this planet that don’t involve a pool or a bar. So, if you want to go off the beaten track and see something different on your holidays this year, let it be any of the places mentioned above. Just be sure to stay safe if travelling alone, and to not disturb the peace of wherever it is you may go.
