Having talked to a few people recently about their holiday plans, it seems that many only consider going abroad to be a proper holiday. Whilst we too enjoy foreign holidays they are problematic at the moment. So problematic that many like us, have put them on hold. So instead, why not take this opportunity to holiday in Britain. There are few places more ravishing and varied than the British Isles. I find it terribly sad when you someone tells you, "I've never been to Yorkshire or the Lakes or Scotland". I only use those locations as examples as they are the more well known tourist destinations but every part of the UK has stunningly beautiful and varied landscapes and scenery as well as amazing places to see and things to do. We recently spent a springtime break in Herefordshire, a place we've been visiting for decades. Herefordshire isn't really somewhere most people would think of as a holiday destination and long may that continue. Being there at springtime was a real privilege and such an uplifting experience. It was beyond stunning.
So rather than clambering to escape "Dear Old Blighty" why not embrace it instead. Go and explore a part of the UK you are unfamiliar with. It will surprise and delight you. Hopefully things will have eased and you can go back to touring abroad next year.
and some wonderful "empty areas" ..... Elan valley, Welsh marches of Herefordshire and Shropshire, and where I am now, Northumberland National park.
