An Italian – style road trip in South England that is.
Last week I sunk my teeth into a homemade calzone, savoured the rich texture of a real gelato and washed it all down with a delicate espresso. I finished the day with my toes in the ocean and a vest-top suntan.
There is no place like home…when it’s sunny and you know the right places to go. You’re about to find out about how I went about an Italian-themed road trip – from London to Dover.
Let’s do it.
This is a Guest Post from Lynn Reid. Thanks for the tips!
Manchester is a vibrant city, buzzing with the noise of tourists and locals alike. Manchester isn’t considered one of Britain’s best attractions, but it is anything but an eye sore; Manchester is better known for its shopping scene and culture. If you are thinking of shopping in Manchester then its variety of shopping centres and markets will certainly appeal to you. Now to make the experience as easy and pleasant as possible here is a shopaholic’s guide to Manchester.
I have been struggling for a week to try and put into words what going to TBEX meant to me and my blog. Good news is instead of focusing on writing what the TBEX effect is, I focused on implementing all the good advice and lessons learned from the conference.
So I’ve been a busy bee working on the new logo, new theme and restructuring categories and SEO. Yeey! No, really, Yeeeeeeeeeey! I love every minute of it. I even ordered business cards.
For those who haven’t been to TBEX before and are not quite sure if it’s worth your time or your money, let me just say it is worth both and even more. And this is why:
I am going to make my début on the UK Travel Room with a post about the Tours de France.
From the stunning heights of the Alps and the Pyrenese to the cultural metropolis of Paris, the Tours de France is a traveller’s dream. For 100 years, cyclists have been travelling the length and breadth of France to watch out for the coveted yellow jersey; I am one of them. I arrived in France last week mostly for the TDF.
For most travellers Berlin is the history, the Berlin wall, the quirky night life and the alternative life style you experience for a few days.
For me, Berlin was a different experience: sleep deprivation, hunger and a porn star maniac. How did that happen? Pretty easy, let me explain.
If you’re looking to cover some of Central America on your travels then I’d strongly recommend you look at driving round Costa Rica for a couple of weeks. Here’s the route map Eva planned:
The heaven for any shopaholic has one name and that is Barcelona. Forget Milano, get your plastic cards on hand and see why the Catalan capital is the best place to shop for that new outfit you’ve been dreaming of for the past few months (or weeks) and check this Barcelona shopping guide.
Spain’s traditional meal, tapas, is one the most delicious variety of appetizers, or snacks you can ever taste. And when in Spain, there is no excuse to not have some tapas and some Sangria.
In December I found myself looking for a holiday somewhere in the UK. I didn’t have enough money to go overseas and so it seemed like a sensible choice, more so when there is already loads to see right here in Edinburgh. Many of my friends suggested either Scotland or Ireland as great places to celebrate New Year’s Eve. After a bit of research my mind was set on one of the most famous NYE party destinations in Scotland, Edinburgh’s Hogmanay. So the next step as usual was to find cheap accommodation in Edinburgh.

We spent five jam-packed days in Bristol this summer and had an amazing family holiday. Here are some highlights from the trip that I would especially recommend for children.
