While coastal beaches and historic landmarks are in abundance in Cornwall, it is Newquay that boasts some of the finest coastal areas in the UK.

Visit Connecticut’s Fan Favorite – Niantic, For A Great Seaside Getaway

The State of Connecticut recently ran a “Fan Favorite” campaign for residents and visitors to vote for their favorite town in Connecticut. The winner was the charming town of Niantic, a village of East Lyme, located a short distance from Mystic. I had never been to the Connecticut shore, so just had to see what everyone was raving about. My visit just so happened to coincide with a visit by Governor Malloy who was presenting the town with a video. It all started with a video the town submitted to the Fan Favorite contest, have a look: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DM0tROLWfVY .

How To Keep Kids Entertained on Long Haul Flights

How To Keep Kids Entertained on Long Haul Flights

Long haul flights are taxing for everyone and children in particular can struggle with being restricted whilst flying to a far away location. Other than the standard in-flight films, colouring books and things to read there is very little for children to do. This is why it is always best to be prepared for the length of the flight and do everything you can to keep your children entertained.

Preparation Is Essential. You need to begin to prepare your children for what to they will experience on the flight a few weeks in advance. This way they will be aware of what will be happening, how they will feel, and what the outcome of the flight will be. It’s especially important to explain about seat belts and why everyone will be seated and buckled in for take off and landing.

What do you envision when you hear ‘bed and breakfast?’ If you’re like most people, you probably think about an historic Victorian or Queen Anne draped in lace and tucked away in a quaint corner of town. While it’s true that many inns were grand, former homes of the town’s well-to-do, some were not even used as homes at all.

From schoolhouses and churches, to working lighthouses and sail boats, some B&Bs lived completely different lives before opening their doors to travelers and serving up delicious breakfasts. So, next time you fall asleep in class, don’t be too hard on yourself. In fact, you may be onto something!
