There are a lot of exciting holidays to be had within the UK. Here are a few locations that will have you planning more than one trip.


For the motorsports enthusiast, Silverstone, home to the British Grand Prix, is a break that is sure to be remembered for many years to come. Here, you can see such Formula One legends as Lewis Hamilton. You may even catch
Max Mosley in the stands watching the sport for which he has done so much. Mosley was instrumental in encouraging a lot of innovation and safety measures on the Formula One racing circuit. His long tenure as president of the FIA (the governing body of Formula One) has led to his opinion being very well respected amongst motorsport fans. Tickets for Silverstone should be bought in advance for the best chance of getting the seat and race day that you want the most.

Outdoor fishing

Getting away to a cabin by a lake or river can be a great way to get back to nature with your friends or even your entire family. The UK is full of such spots as the Forest of Dean, where you can boat down the river and fish. Afterwards, you can return to a well-appointed cabin and even take in a spa treatment. For the true thrill-seeker, there is kayaking the rapids followed by fishing later on.


Cycling is a great way to get away from it all and see some great sights. With cycling, you have time to observe the beauty of what is around you. This means that there are better opportunities to see wildlife in the forest and forget about the hustle and bustle of the city. That doesn’t mean that there is not a lot of excitement to go around. Mountain bike trails are not for those that don’t enjoy getting their adrenaline going a bit. If you have other travellers with you that want a more leisurely experience, then they can go on one of the shorter and easier trails. You can rent bicycles at many of the public forests throughout the UK.

Backpacking and camping

Sometimes, it can be exciting to test yourself and see what you are truly made of. A weekend backpacking trip is great because you can choose a trip to fit the level you feel up to. While it can be fun to push yourself a bit, make sure that you plan your trip well and take plenty of provisions. If this is your first backpacking trip in years, you may want to stick to a shorter itinerary or choose a less strenuous trail. It is always important to allow extra time for inclement weather and other factors. A guided trip can be a good idea for those that are truly beginners. There is no better time to start planning your adrenaline-fuelled getaway. Perhaps you could even encourage a friend of yours to get in on the excitement.

Men have found different ways to express their obsessions with cars ever since cars became commonplace on the roads. These obsessions run deep, touching on everything from extravagant wheels to crazy modifications. You’ll be surprised by just how far people will go to show their love for their vehicles.

I’m in Love With my Car

Everyone knows someone who loves his or her car a little too much. Maybe they put in too much effort caring for the vehicle, or maybe they won’t let any friends or pets too close. Still, there’s someone out there who takes love for a car to a completely new level.

Nathaniel, a customer service technician, has a deep obsession with his car. It’s a red 1998 Monte Carlo. Nathaniel named the car Chase. He and Chase have something of a typical relationship, except, of course, that Chase is a car. Nathaniel takes Chase on dates, gives Chase a kiss every morning, and buys Chase birthday presents. The man can’t go longer than 24 hours away from the car—being apart for a long time makes him cry.

While Nathaniel’s story might seem a bit extreme, plenty of others have obsessions with cars that get them into trouble.

Wheels to Die For

Some people are so obsessed with rims they’ll literally kill to get a set. The desire for a nice set of wheels has spread rapidly from sports stars and rappers to mere SUV drivers in the suburbs. And these rims aren’t cheap—spinners, a kind that continues spinning after the car stops, go for upwards of $10,000. This expensive status symbol has even led to murder as thieves have killed the vehicle’s owner for the wheels or killed police who have tried to interrupt a theft.

Annual sales of rims are in the billions. Of course, an underground economy has followed along, stocked by chop shops and thieves. Expensive rims have also caused the rate of auto thefts overall to rise. Now, when someone reports a crime related to their car, investigators don’t just ask details about the car. They ask about its wheels.

Crazy Modifications

Used car dealers have seen it all. Many car lovers express their feelings for their vehicles through bizarre modifications that decorate and personalize the cars. While modifications are not uncommon, some car owners have taken it to another level. There’s an alien car, a car that functions (briefly) like an airplane, even an invisible car. Modification obsessions are one way that people take their love for cars very, very far.

Women’s Obsessions

While expensive wheels and other modifications are often the realm of men, women also develop obsessions for their cars. Sure, women are less likely to do modifications that make their vehicles more difficult or expensive to insure. They still buy cars based on color, decorate the interior with mirrors, decals, and other accessories, and develop attachments to cars that are better off upgraded.

Since cars became commonly available, people have found ways to express their love for their vehicles on the road. Some are stranger than others.

Dolphins are majestic creatures, often seen cavorting in the waves all around the globe. The most commonly found species in Australia’s waters are bottlenose dolphins. Bottlenose dolphins are usually found in bays and waterways, surf coasts, lagoons and the open sea. They are very friendly and it is not uncommon to see those riding waves with surfers or swimming alongside boats.If you’re lucky, you might snap a photo just when they’re airborne while jumping on water.
One place you can see dolphins is Tangalooma Island Resort, situated along the coast of Queensland situated on Moreton Island. The island is considered an unspoiled beauty offering a wide range of activities from diving in the wrecks to tobogganing down sand dunes. One of their most popular activities is dolphin feeding, which occurs at sunset on the shore. Up to eight dolphins visit regularly, and you can get to experience how friendly they are in real life.

Dolphins are extremely social creatures and live in large groups called pods. Their diet consists of a number of sea dwelling creatures, including fish, squid, shrimp, tiny octopus and krill. The average adult eats close to 15kg a day to feel satiated. The fish they get during the feeding program is only a small portion of their daily intake – approximately 10 to 20 per cent, much like having a treat after a hard day at work!

The dolphins who visit Moreton Island all have unique personalities. Most of the dolphins are related in some way. The first dolphin to visit the resort was Beauty in 1992, and it was well documented in local media. She was hand fed each night with her calf, Tinkerbell. Not long after, another mature female named Bess visited with her son, Rani. From this point on the dolphins continued to visit, bringing in new family members as the pod grew. Today it has become a normal experience to encounter a few families when circling the waters. Each dolphin can be traced back to those first few ones who made friends with the shore’s inhabitants.

Feeding the dolphins is a wonderful experience for any visitor, but strict guidelines must be adhered to in order to maintain the natural instincts and independence of the dolphins. Be prepared to get into the water up to your waist. A member of the Dolphin Care Team will be there to guide you through each step of the feeding process. Their food intake needs to be regulated as well in order to avoid health complications.

If you are interested in getting in on the action, why not book a trip to some wild dolphin resorts today? Dolphin feeding is a lifetime experience you and your family should not miss this holiday!
