The Beauty of the UK
When thinking about your next travel destination, it is easy to get carried away. There are lots of amazing places to visit in the world. When considering dream holidays Goa, Brazil or the Maldives might spring to mind, but what about the little slices of paradise found right here in the UK?
You might not think that staying here for your holiday is very glamorous, but the UK is an incredibly beautiful place and has some world-class destinations. Here are our top three reasons for staying in the UK this summer.
A holiday in Brazil might sound like a good idea, but if somewhere takes two days to get to, it’ll seriously eat into your holiday time. When you do arrive, you’ll need the best part of a few days to get over your jet lag.
As we’re a small island, it will rarely take you more than a few hours to get anywhere in the UK – especially with the availability of domestic flights, which can connect Londoners to the northern territories of Scotland in an hour.
Speaking the language
We don’t mean this in just the sense of being able to understand what people are saying – although that really helps. What we mean is, in a wider sense, you know what is going on. You know what things cost, you know how much to tip and you know how to get served in a bar or restaurant. So often these are the cause of anxiety in other countries, but here in Blightly, you’ll always be on the right page.
From the wild and rugged mountains of Wales, to the quintessentially English countryside of Sussex and the stunning Lake District, we have some of the best views in the world. The pyramids of Giza are impressive, the Taj Mahal an architectural masterpiece but it’s important not to overlook the understated beauty of England.
What’s more, by deciding to explore home soil this year you may find that you’re able to save money for your next trip, and that means opening up more destinations such as Goa and the Caribbean. All areas of the world are beautiful and worth exploring but perhaps it’s time we started looking a little closer to home for our thrills before taking our interests overseas.
