Make most of his­tory and mys­tery

Life & Style Weekend - - TRAVEL - WITH Carolyn Thomp­son, Flight Cen­tre Sun­shine Plaza

BRI­TAIN is one of my favourite places to visit. From Lon­don city and its many at­trac­tions to pic­turesque Wales and the Scot­tish high­lands, Bri­tain has so much to of­fer. must def­i­nite­ly­ex­plore. Lon­don­for The any need­ed­c­ity Lon­don­firstis an timea few ab­so­luteEye, visi­tor.days to I Lon­don Bridge, Buck­ing­ham Place and the chang­ing of the guards to strolling through Hyde Park with the squir­rels were just a few of my high­lights. If you love mu­si­cals, then Lon­don is def­i­nitely the place to see one. I found the best way to ex­plore the coun­try­side was by tak­ing a road trip, to see all that this beau­ti­ful re­gion has to of­fer. From quaint coun­try towns to see­ing the beau­ti­ful scenery, it’s a hol­i­day like no other. I re­ally en­joyed vis­it­ing Stat­ford-upon-Avon, which is home to pos­si­bly the most fa­mous writer in the English lan­guage, Shake­speare. If you hap­pen to be in the me­dieval mar­ket town on a Sun­day, there is a quaint mar­ket where you can en­joy live mu­sic and lo­cal goods by the River Avon. Ed­in­burgh far ex­ceeded all my ex­pec­ta­tions. The beau­ti­ful city al­lows you to ex­pe­ri­ence the me­dieval Old Town and el­e­gant Ge­or­gian New Town. I loved ex­plor­ing the beau­ti­ful cob­ble­stone streets and took a trek up Arthur’s seat. Al­though it took a bit of pant­ing to get to the top, the views are just spec­tac­u­lar and thor­oughly worth it. Speak­ing of won­der­ful views, the Scot­tish high­lands are ex­quis­ite. If you are lucky enough you may even see Nessie, the Loch Ness mon­ster. Be sure that when trav­el­ling through this re­gion, though, that you pack some win­ter wool­lies. The re­gion can be quite cold, even in sum­mer. ex­cel­lently-pricedWith daily flights flights,to Bri­tainit is fromthe per­fect Bris­bane time cou­pledto start with plan­ning your Bri­tish ad­ven­ture. Pur­chas­ing a multi-des­ti­na­tion air­fare is great value for money. Why not start your Bri­tish ad­ven­ture in Lon­don and fly out of Ed­in­burgh or add an ex­tra stop in Belfast? If you love the sound of a Bri­tish ad­ven­ture come in and visit me at Flight Cen­tre Sun­shine Plaza or phone 1300 167 076 to plan your next hol­i­day.
