Travel trends

In recent years, because of the focus on the enormous climate footprint that travel and specially flying leave on the Planet and because of the COVID-19 pandemic, many have become aware of discovering their own country. Many people have seen the world, but many do not know their own local arena. To travel in your own country or even your own local neighbourhood can be just as exciting as flying many miles to a far off place with exotic beaches, warm waves and lots of sunshine. Great Britain has its own charm and comprises a lot of wonderful places. Get inspired by Tales’ selection of travel books online before taking a trip in your local arena or country. As a brite you are lucky to have four countries in our proximity. You can choose to take on an adventure to the Scottish Highland and get lost in the foggy and beautiful landscape with heather blooming all around like a purple blanket hugging the landscape. You can choose a big-city holiday in the grand, old London. You could also dive into the magnificent history of Wales and visit ancient castles and fortresses that will take you on a journey back in time. Finally you could also choose to visit the beautiful and almost magical country of Ireland. Ireland has the most extraordinary and beautiful landscape ever seen with its mountains, waterfalls and wide expanses. To travel in your own proximity can only be recommended and many people have found new wonderful places just a few kilometers from where they live, and the good thing about traveling in your local neighbourhood is that you avoid the tourists.
