Tucked away between Italy, Austria, Croatia and Hungary lies this hidden gem of a country. Greener than green and bluer than blue, it's easy to fall in love with the easy-going and peacefully bucolic yet jaw-dropping country side. And did I mention that the wines and the food are seriously delicious?
I never knew that you could ski in Spain. I always equated skiing with the Alps and Spain with sunshine, beaches, flamenco and bull-fighting. But apparently, you can ski in Spain - up in the stunning Spanish Pyrenees in the Catalonia region of the country.

There is a certain initial aggression that permeates the air here in Israel. I'm not certain whether that is because of the harsh syllables of a language I cannot decipher (the raspy Hebrew "hat" and "raish" sounds that come from the back of one's throat), or the centuries of war and bloodshed that were fought over these lands, or the fact that it's mandatory for every Israeli to do military service for three years of their youth, that gives this country the impression of being "playfully aggressive".
Buses and coaches have got a lot of advantages over other forms of transport. Usually they are cheaper than the cost of petrol and parking cars; cheaper, more frequent and more flexible than planes; cheaper and more reliable than trains.
When Martin Nolan of The Travel Ramble suggested that I go skiing in Norway, my first thought was "I didn't realize that Norway was even considered a skiing destination!" I know there's a lot of snow there, but I don't think about slopes when I think of Norway. I actually hardly think about slopes at all since I'm quite terrible at skiing. I grew up in Thailand for god's sake! I can barely ice-skate. Watching me navigate through ice and snow is like watching a pile of baby rabbits getting shot. Seriously. Martin mentioned that Norway is probably the best place for a novice skier to learn. Enticed, I invited him to write a guest post about skiing in Norway so that I can definitely consider it when I'm thinking about taking a ski trip there.
Even the world’s non-romantics would be hard-pressed not to feel even the faintest of flutters in some of Europe’s finest cities. As far as city breaks are concerned, mainland Europe is full of potential destinations that are alluring, beautiful and full of enrapture.
Whether you’re travelling for an anniversary weekend or you just fancy getting away with your other half for a spontaneous couple of days, these three cities would make excellent locations to while away the hours hand in hand.
Flying from Bristol Airport for your next getaway? Then the chances are, you'll be looking to book Bristol Airport parking before your departure date comes around. In fact, it's usually well worth booking your airport parking in advance as you can usually enjoy additional cost savings, plus you can be sure of availability. There's always the danger that, if you book on the day, your preferred space close to the terminal or next to the bus stop will be full. So, do the sensible thing and book well in advance. That said, where and how do you book? You can of course book direct with Bristol Airport, either via their website or by calling the parking office. However, there are plenty of other third party parking operators that provide their own deals and discounts, and promise various services such as high airport security and free booking amendments.
