Visiting Oxford

Those who come to the UK are very likely to put the city of Oxford as one of their top destinations that they simply need to see. There are many good reasons why this is the case. After all, the city of Oxford has a lot to offer to its visitors, and it is easily one of the most culturally rich places to visit in the whole of the UK. Below you will find a few ways you might want to visit Oxford this year:

.

.

1. By bike. It is cheap, it is healthy, it is convenient. the only drawback might be that you might either lose your bike or it might get stolen from you. I hope none if this is going to happen to you, but if you do choose to scout Oxford by bike make sure that you have enough food and water because there are simply so many things to see there that it can take you a whole day just to visit one corner of this wonderful city.

2. By foot. This is by far the most popular way to explore Oxford as you don’t have to constantly keep eye on your bike, and you don’t have to pay anything for bus fares. You can step literally in any part of the city and you can do it on your own terms and at your own pace. If you choose this path, you might want to take advantage of Oxford guided tours that will show you all those places in the city you have never heard about. If you care about history, choosing a knowledgable tour guide is one of the best things you can do while in Oxford.

3. By car. It might seem like the most convenient choice, and for many it might indeed be, but you will soon realise that there are many places in Oxford where cars and buses simply cannot go, and for this reason it might be a good idea to opt for guided tours.

There are many great ways to explore the glorious city of Oxford. The key here is to find something that works for you and possibly something that you have never tried before and would be excited to try out.

Advantages of Traveling with Your Dog

For centuries dogs have been loyal companions to people. It is no wonder then that so many of us choose to have at least one by our side. I see people with dogs all the time, and it brings me joy to see how the dog owners enjoy themselves this way.

If you have a dog and feel a bit anxious about leaving it somewhere when you are away, take into consideration the fact that you actually can take your dog to places such as Bassenthwaite self catering, which was exactly set up with dog owners in mind.

Below you will find only some of the advantages of traveling with your dog:
1. Taking your companion anywhere with you can be actually a lot cheaper than using pet sitting services. Once you find a place you want to visit and realise how friendly this place is to pets, you might want to start planning. You will be surprised how many facilities are actually a lot friendlier to pets than you could imagine.
2. Traveling with pets can be more enjoyable because their company can make you feel more joyful and relaxed. This is especially true if you happen to travel alone and are looking for somebody to add some warmth to your adventures.
3. If you have a dog with you, you are more likely to attract the attention of passers by including children. Having a pet by your side is a great way to facilitate socialising with others, which will mean that you will actually make some friends during your travels.
4. Traveling with a dog will force you to stay more active as dogs are very active companions indeed. Even a few minutes of time spent with your dog will be enough to keep you healthy and reduce the chances of obesity and heart-related problems.

As you can see, there are many advantages of traveling with a dog you might not be aware of. One thing that you will need to keep in mind though is whether or not you will have a chance to stay with your dog in a hotel and how the dog is going to affect your stay.

What to do in Keswick

Each one of us deserves a break, but getting one doesn’t have to mean that you have to leave the country as there are some great places to visit here such as the ever-famous Lake District, which continues to attract visitors from all over the world.

Winters can be a great time to spend some time in one of the many cottages in Keswick. If you enjoy a breeze of fresh and unspoiled air, this will be the place you will want to head to. Some trekking and hiking equipment will be helpful too, because after all this what you will be doing there most of the time.

One of the biggest advantages of visiting Lake District in winter is that it is more quiet there than during summer. This can be a big deal to all those who are looking for some place to hide from their busy lives. And here are some of the examples of what one can do in Keswick:

1. Hope Park cannot be missed especially if you have young children with you. They are arguably the biggest attraction of the town and rightfully so. It is true that the park might be more beautiful during summer due to rather fabulous gardens, but even during this time of year it is worth to give it a go.
2. The town itself has a rather impressive selection of shops and cafes for even the most demanding of customers. You can spend hours and hours just browsing through stuff.
3. Castlerigg Stone Circle is one of the marvels in the area. Nobody knows how the stones got there, but the place is really impressive.

5. The whole of Keswick is surrounded by picturesque hills and lakes that are great for hiking. A pair of warm boots and some warm clothes will be what you will need to start your adventures there. There will be a few other accessories that you might want to take with you depending on the weather.

Looking for an Unusual Holiday? Consider Samoa

Best known as the setting for Treasure Island, modern Samoa is comprised of two main islands, Savai’i and Upolu, and surrounded by several smaller, private islands. One of these little gems is Namu’a, which can be seen from Upolu’s port of Mutiatele, which is separated by a narrow strait, but seems like it’s located in another world. There’s snorkeling in the reef or lounging on the beach. Evenings can be spent at one of the beach-side spots called Fale eating a simple local meal by the mellow light of an oil lamp; there is no electricity on the island.

Often referred to as one of Greece’s best kept secrets, Marathos is a small island off the coast of the Greek mainland, just 355 square KM in size with a total of four meters of coastline. This once abandoned rocky island was home to nothing, but after the Emilianos family discovered the location in 1977, they brought life and tourism to the island by creating the Pantelis Marathi resort.

Over 40 years later, Marathi Resort is now popular with tourists looking to escape normality and indulge in seclusion and experience the wonders of the natural world at their best. Although the idea of Marathi Island is to escape modern amenities and embrace a more basic and relaxed lifestyle, the Emilianos family have developed a selection of rooms for visitors to stay in and a restaurant for guests to enjoy. The aim of adding these basic amenities to the island is to enhance the process of relaxation on the island, opposed to distracting from the natural beauty that surrounds.

My name is Yomi Rodrig and I discovered Marathi Island and the Pantelis resort many years back when searching the internet for secluded holiday destinations to visit to escape the stress of my day job in finance and after visiting the island once, I now visit three times a year and see the island as a second home and the owners of the resort an extended family.

If the idea of pure relaxation and living a slow and simple life isn’t enough to convince you that Marathos island truly is the holiday destination of dreams, then allow me to share with you my own personal reasons for loving the island and resort.

The Holiday is What You Make of It

With a lot of holidays, there’s an itinerary of activities in place before you even arrive meaning you needn’t worry about being bored or wasting any time as every moment is packed full of action, and although these kinds of holidays are exciting and exhilarating, you don’t remember the place you visited but the things you did.

When you visit Marathi Island, the way you spend your holiday is up to you but everything at the resort is calm and slow moving, so instead of the things you do making the holiday memorable, the place itself is what makes the trip so spectacular.

Although Marathos may seem plain and empty to some, the holiday truly is what you make of it and the way you choose to spend your time will determine of how you remember the trip. The option to lie back and relax is there, but you can also spend hours exploring and discovering new natural wonders and wildlife you won’t have seen before.

A Fresh and Healthy Lifestyle

Many of us come away from holidays feeling as though we have over indulged and like we need to detox upon our return home but after a visit to the Marathi Island, I feel healthier and fitter than I ever do at home. The lifestyle at the resort is very back to basics and the diet is all about natural, unprocessed ingredients that are freshly sourced, meaning you spend your visit eating and living well.

The lack of attractions and activities forces you to either spend hours walking which is great exercise or relaxing which is great for the mind. The Pantelis Restaurant serves up a healthy and fresh selection of authentic Greek foods including meze starters, homemade breads, fresh fruits, homemade stews and soups and traditional desserts.

 

The Locals

Whenever you visit a foreign destination, the locals play a big part in forming your experience and the Emilianos family create such a wonderful, relaxed and authentic environment for their guests, so from the moment you arrive you feel at home and instantly being to share their love for the island.

After taking residence on Marathos over 40 years ago, the family know every inch of the island and are always keen to share their knowledge and experience with guests to help enhance your visit and provide you with the best trip possible.

If an escape to a secluded island with a fresh and balanced diet and relaxed but fulfilling lifestyle sounds like the kind of holiday you desire, then a trip to the Pantelis resort on Marathi Island is going to be ideal for you.

Say goodbye to normality and the stresses of everyday life and say hello to tranquillity and peace.
