The Ultimate Guide to Planning a UK Road Trip
There is a lot to take into account when you’re planning a road trip, so follow this beginner’s guide to the ultimate UK road trip so you can sit back and enjoy the journey.
Exploring the Scottish Highlands by Car
Exploring the Scottish Highlands by car brings visitors past deep blue seas, white sandy beaches, and some of the most dramatic scenery anywhere in the UK.
Before the Fringe Festival, there was the Edinburgh International Festival (EIF) which was also a performing arts festival, it was just a bit more formal and acts had to be invited to perform. In 1947, the Fringe Festival was created when a large number of performers showed up to host their own shows.
Ironically it was located on the “fringe” of EIF and thus the name was created!
Today the Edinburgh Fringe is significantly larger (in terms of performances) than EIF. In fact, it’s larger than any other festival in Edinburgh! The biggest reason for this is because it is an open-access festival.
That means absolutely anyone can perform, no need for an invitation. This means you get a wide variety of artists and talent which makes it quite the experience!
BlaBlaCar is a great concept that has really taken off around Europe. It is essentially a car share program that makes travel so much easier…and you can make some extra cash along the way!
If you’re planning a trip, post it onto the website and see if there are any folks who want to jump on board for parts of the journey. They’ll chip in for the cost of gas and you’ll get some great company along the way.
This is an awesome way to meet new people, get some cash, and help save the environment by carpooling!
