I am of the belief that the Lake District is indeed one of the best places in the world as it has so much to offer. Whether you are looking to holiday there or live there, it has something for everybody. I have travelled to a lot of European holiday destinations and have paid a lot more than I would for a week at the Lakes and I must say that the foreign holiday resorts couldn’t boast half of what the Lakes can. Of course, the great British weather can be unpredictable but with plenty to fill your time indoors and out, an appearance by that illusive sun is merely a bonus.
If you ever find yourself planning a trip to or a hike in the woods it is important that you be prepared. It is important to have some knowledge of the animals that live in the area that you are planning to visit. Not all creatures are cute and cuddly. Some of the cutest and cuddliest things out there are also downright deadly. So before you head out get to know the wildlife that you might encounter in the woods of the countryside you are visiting.
Sitting down by the crackling warmth of the campfire is the perfect ending to the night. Adding in some great stories or some songs to sing can help to take it to the next level.
Staying in a self-catering cottage or accommodations may seem like roughing it to some people. Just the idea of cooking during a vacation will make some people’s skin crawl. But for the real “rough” self-catering experience you have to take to the wilderness. You can’t get anymore self-catering than camping.
The winter winds are finally starting to taper off. The sun is shining again and the whole world seems to be waking up. That can only mean one thing – it’s time to start the grill. BBQ season is gearing up and before you can get that fire toasty hot it will be in full swing.
