There was a time in my life when I considered going on holiday must involve going to a foreign land. How could you possibly want to stay in the UK? International travel was exciting right? What did I do when I got to these places? Yep, I drank cold lager, lazed by the pool and failed to explore. I now consider that a waste. Don’t get me wrong, chilling by the pool is nice, but for 7 days?

What we must consider is that most of the places that the brits visit are designed to be a bit of the UK in the sun. Many of the holiday islands are sun scorched bits of land with hotels, pools and bars selling English Breakfast. I don’t see the point. If you want English food, stay in England!

If you want scenery, then the UK can be pretty special. You don’t even need to go that far. The picture above, was taken less than 1 mile from my home.

There are so many beautiful towns in the UK with rich history and tradition, I implore you to take the time to visit some of these places. Not only will you be helping the local economy and saving the environment, you may be pleasantly surprised.

I personally have never looked back. Yes, I still go abroad sometimes, but I am sure going to experience that which is in my own country.
