      Hampshire Nov 19, 2015 at 8:20 AM

      Does there anybody here live in Alton, Hampshire, or is there anybody here is a walk-enthusiast, who had done some walks in Hampshire : Alton - Chawton - Farringdon (Upper) - Selborne; walk the South Down National Park and / or benefiting the South Down's rambler services (Refer to : Visit-Winchester or Visit-Hampshire) ?
      I am interested in those activities, yet haven't "seen" the latest reviews on them.

      London Nov 22, 2015 at 9:50 AM

      Hi there, so my question isn't really a travel related question at all it's actually just about dining in London.. I'm trying to be very picky but I'm looking for a nice romantic restaurant of any cuisine that is decorated with fairy lights, now I know this sounds crazy but my parter has wanted to go to a restaurant of this description for some time and I just haven't been able to find anywhere. Somewhere that uses fairy lights to decorate the inside of the restaurant or even the trees around the building and things like that.. I really hope someone can help me! Thank you all for reading!

    • Wales Trip

      Wales Oct 26, 2015 at 4:35 AM

      Hi.. I need help and suggestions on a few things. I'll be travelling with my wife and 3 kids (4yrs,2yrs & 1yrs). We be renting a car from Manchester Airport. We be in UK for 8 days and hope to have a wonderful scenery trip there. Someone told me Wales is a mix of both Cornwall & Scotland. The only downside is maybe I'll be travelling in early April where weather is either can be very good or bad. I was thinking of 2 base for accommodation (3 days each). One at the North and the 2nd near South but not sure which area is best to stay.

      North Wales
      I read that Nant Ffrancon pass and llanberis pass via Capel Curig are both scenic route. Any other route that I can add on to it.

      Places of Interest
      (1) Would love to hike up to Snowden but with kids I understand that it is impossible. Read that there is a train that went up but it depend on the weather. Any easy hiking trail route apart Snowden. I've heard about Yr Eifl but not sure hows the route there.
      (2) Like to try the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways (return trip). Not sure where to start and how long is the trip.
      (3) Like to explore Lyn Peninsula,Caernarfon,Anglesey etc. Any scenic route that I can pass. Any place where I can stop for cliff view pictures.

      South Wales
      Drive via A70 route. Heard that route is quite scenic. Would love to stop by Hay-on-Wyes just to feel the books before moving off to my 2nd base. For South Wales I would like to discover more on Pembrokeshire (St Davids,Solva, Goodwick etc) area. More to the beaches, cliffs with views.

      Place of Interest

      Basically I am willing to drive any routes that is for picturesque views. Though I understand roads in UK can be congested during peak, I will try to keep it simple and just drive where I can or pass through. This is also not a finalize plan so I am open to suggestions.

      Once I am done with Wales, I may travel up back to Birmingham for a day before heading up back to Manchester.

      Thank you in advance.

What exactly is involved with the boat trip. The website leaves a lot to be desired. So often these historical attractions are not worth their money - being on a tight budget would the money be better spent on a pub meal?

      Getting around in Belfast

      We'll make a daytrip to Belfast and want to visit most of its sights... Unfortunately it seems that they are alloted all over the city, so I'm wondering how to get around in the city. I know but nevertheless I'm a little bit lost...

      I plan to start at City hall after arriving central station (or Europe bus centre). After that I want to walk to St Anne’s Cathedral and head for West Belfast seeing the peace lines and the murals of Falls Rd and Shankill Rd. Is this doable afoot? Or is it a too long march? Would a detour to the Queen's university and/or Laganside be also possible?

      Could you give me any hints to shorten the march by using the public metro service? Could you even appoint the correct (bus?) routes and stations near the specific sights? I know but I can't relate the stations to specific sights, additionally the city centre is not pictured...

      Additionally I'd be intrested in visiting Stormont parliament. Is there any public bus connection?

      Or would you discourage myself from walking and using public busses? Should I use taxis (black cab tours?) or even the hop-on/hop-off sightseeing bus (

      I've been offered a job in Belfast and I'm considering it. So would like to hear from some foreigners to live in Belfast. What you think of living there? Is it hard to find a place to live? Any info would be useful.
