      Hi guys, I'm heading to Londonderry for a 2 months. As I'm programmer working remotely i will have to bring my PC with me. As I'm in Czech Republic right now taking it on the plane is not an option. Do you have any idea how to ship it safely and in possible cheapest way?

      Hi !

      We are a spanish family of travelers. My wife, son and me.

      I am trying to teach english to my son 7 years old. We shared our home with a babysitter and now he understands lot of english and he tries to speak it.

      I am asking myself how go on teaching it.
      One idea is to travel to UK
      Or to share our holidays with an english spoken family in UK, Spain or other country.
      Or other family to exchange our language and culture.

      Whatever idea will be great...

      Where I could find families with children to enjoy the holidays.??

      Gatwick Feb 12, 2017 at 11:44 PM

      Hi, Can someone please help me as this is doing my head in! We land at Gatwick at 21.45 and need to travel to York. What is the best way to go about this? Get into London and stay overnight in a cheap hotel close to Kings Cross and then set off the next morning. I take it the trains run around the clock, not knowing how long we may be held up in Immigration etc.

      Thanks in advance.

    • Mobile Phone Carrier?

      Scotland Jan 27, 2017 at 9:26 PM

      We plan to purchase our first smart phones before visiting Scotland in June. Are their providers you would recommend and/or any we should avoid? We'll mostly be in Edinburgh and the Highlands.

      (The more I learn, the more excited I become in anticipation of this trip.)

      How sad that this site is closing! The Scotland page has been so welcoming and helpful! Many thanks to all who've responded to my questions.

    • Not much lodging available due to bank holiday.

      Edinburgh Feb 21, 2017 at 8:59 AM

      We are flying in to EDI for the start of a 3-week driving trip around Scotland. We arrive on Thursday 5/27 and will stay near the airport for 1 night (we arrive late in the evening). We thought we would then spend 3 more nights in a B and B in central Edinburgh. However, due to the bank holiday, many of the places where we would like to stay aren't available. So, instead of touring Edinburgh first, we thought we would head out of town and see some other sights/cities first and see Edinburgh at the the end our middle of our stay. Any suggestion of where we should go first since Edinburgh will be crowded? Thank you, Cynthia Burbank, CA

    • Planning a trip to New Quay

      New Quay Jun 14, 2011 at 11:49 AM

      We are planning to visit New Quay next year. My mother was born there and I want to spend some time getting to know the place and walking the Ceredigion Coastal Path. Thought we would also spend a day in Aberystwyth. We will be traveling by train/bus. Is there anything I should especially see that is near enough and I'm able to get to by walking or public transport? Any advice? When I ask friends if they have been to Wales - it seems that Holyhead is about the only place they have been. Travel books are frustrating since they seem to skip that part of the coast in their descriptions. Do you think 3-4 days is enough time? Thanks for the feedback.

      Hertz Car drop off to Ferry Terminal

      Fishguard Aug 22, 2008 at 10:16 PM

      Mum and I leave on our first European/UK trip in a few weeks and we are getting pretty excited. Would anyone be able to tell me the distance and best way to get from the Hertz Rental Car drop off in downtown Fishguard to the ferry terminal. We will have all our luggage. Is a taxi the cheapest/easiest option? Likewise at the other end in Ireland if you know from the terminal to the Hertz depot? Thanks.

      Bachelorette Party in the area?!

      Dyfed Jul 20, 2007 at 9:12 AM

      Hello,

      My daughter is getting married in early August in a town called Llanddowror, the home town of her fiance. She thinks it's going to be only her father and I going. We are from the US and have never been to Wales.

      She has no idea yet, but I have arranged for 4 of her best friends to surprise her and meet us there!!

      The problem? We want to have a fun bachelorette party, but I have NO idea what to plan or where we might go for some action. We would like to be in a bar or club with lots of people.

      Is Swansea the best place? How far away is it from Llanddowror?

      The other problem? It's going to have to take place on the first MONDAY night in August! Not the best night of the week for a party - but it has to be that way.

      Can anyone give me some ideas of where to go? Thanks so much!

    • Recommendation for Riding?

      Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Jul 5, 2004 at 1:03 PM

      Greetings: My family and I (2 adults, 16 and 12 year old) will be spending a week near the village of Dale in late July. My 16-year old daughter loves to ride (she owns a horse and rides at least 5-6 times a week). My husband is also an experienced rider and the two of them are hoping to go on several half day rides. Neither care for stuffy, show-type riding. Although I've been told that one can find riding centers through the local ads when we get to the Pembrokeshire area, does anyone have recommendations on which riding center is best? My husband and daughter would like to find a place that has healthy and lively horses, interesting trails to ride, and friendly people. Thanks in advance for any suggestions you have.

      Tenby, where it should be

      Tenby Nov 1, 2003 at 10:51 PM

      I just built my page on Tenby, a small town by tthe west of Wales, but I found that on the VT destination map, it only appears under UK, and not Wales. Even a smaller place like the adjacent Pembroke town was properly listed under a suitable Welsh district. Anybody can tell me how I could get to the VT staff on my question (or perhaps VT staff has just known about it now)?
