Planet Earth; the vast blue world where life blooms, cultures mix and experiences are endless. With 196 countries spread across its surface, who wouldn’t aspire to travel this magnicent spectacle?


For me, the best part of travelling is delving into a culture, and living as part of the community for a short while, rather than wandering around like a tourist in high socks and a straw hat. The idea of getting completely lost in a market in a foreign country is the most enjoyable prospect I can think of.


That’s not to mention the variety of food that you can wrap your taste buds around in a new country. For example in Greece you can nd one of my favourite fast food meals in the world, called ‘Gyros’. It’s cooked meat, chips and salad wrapped in what almost resembles Naan bread. It’s so good. And then in Asia, there’s the variety of rice and noodle dishes that you can get, freshly steamed in a local restaurants; so fresh and healthy.


There are then the holiday destinations, where peacefully laying on a beach in a ridiculously hot country, absorbing the coastal breeze is more appealing. As you can assume, this type of break is a lot less physically demanding, unless, of course, you have kids. In which case you’ll be accumulating an enormous range of blow up dinghies and running around the hotel pool with them. Either of which, I’m sure it’s an enjoyable experience, and well worth the break from work at home.


So whether a week on a beach in sunny Spain is your thing or a fortnight exploring the excitingly modern Japan is more ideal; the world’s opportunities to travel abroad are endless, and taking these opportunities in at a time when travel is thriving is probably the best thing you can do.


More and more people are choosing to holiday in the UK, with the increasingly popular ‘staycations’ also aiding the country’s economy.


Just like the exotic and cultural tourist countries around the world, the United Kingdom is chocked full of beautiful places to visit with stunning culture filled cities, ancient and historical ruins, sandy seaside resorts and remote, rural hideaways.


With the current economic climate, more and more of us are choosing to holiday at home; compromising on price doesn’t necessarily mean losing out on the beautiful and memorable sights associated with the corners of the world.


There are a number of rural and coastal B&Bs, caravan parks, camping pitches, hotels, cabins and properties to rent, meaning you’ll find the perfect holiday accommodation in the right spot to meet your budget.


With so much to see, you’ll be sure to find something in England to appeal to everybody, whether nature enthusiasts, history seekers, family adventures or party animals. Now that

spring is on its way, farms across the country will be opening up petting zoos and the warmer weather will be a great opportunity for camping!
