      United Kingdom Feb 23, 2017 at 4:54 PM

      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.??
      We use to travel in July.

      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.

      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

      Gigrin Red Kite Farm

      Powys Apr 8, 2006 at 11:15 PM

      Has anyone been to the kite feeding at the Gigrin Farm? The farm seems to be very interesting, but getting there by bus from Brecon or Hay-on-Wye, watching the feeding and getting back will take a whole day of my precious time in Wales.I already had to cut short my holiday by a few days because of family and work obligations. There are so many interesting places, that I have a hard time deciding what to do and where to stay.
      Any information about the farm will be very helpful. Thank you in advance.

      I'm trying to figure out the best bus routes to Brecon on a weekend. On the route from Abergavenny the stop in Brecon is called Brecon Bulwark, on the route from Hereford via Hay-on-Wye it is called Brecon Square. Are they close to each other?
