Looking For Home

Looking For Home

With the hot weather well and truly with us here in the UK we can well and justifiably announce 'Summer time has arrived'.  What are your plans for a getaway this month?

The trendy staycation - to explore parts of your resident country in a new way and really focus on the beauty of the countryside and shorelines. Or are you heading further afield to an exotic location, with the added excitement of embracing alternative cultures and ways of life. Seeing the unusual and building life experience to share with friends and family.

noun: staycation

"a holiday spent in one's home country rather than abroad, or one spent at home and involving day trips to local attractions."
Here in the UK we have so many beautiful and historic destinations that should be explored by residents and tourists alike.  National Trust and British Heritage are just two organisations that maintain these sites for us all to enjoy. From inspiring coastlines, strong castles and historical landmarks there is something for us all, whether we are looking to relax, engage in adrenaline fuelled activities or learn about the past.

Places Far And Wide

Looking for something farther afield? Add the excitement of the unknown, embrace alternative cultures and build life experiences that you can share with friends and family for the rest of your life.  

It's great to see Lonely Planet promoting Sri Lanka as a go-to tourist destination for 2019 and shows how a country can show resilience in the face of global issues. Recently showing an astounding boom of tourists from India among others really consolidates Sri Lanka's hard work to regain international tourism attraction. Also mentioned in the top places were Germany and Panama.
