I've been wanting to travel to the UK for years now but it's not on any of my friend's top travel destinations so considering going solo or seeing if there aren't some other people who are interested in the same type of trip.
Or if anyone has any suggestions of tour groups. I've done quite a bit of research but haven't been able to find a good tour group.
I would consider it. I have accumulated a lot of vacation time from two years of slaving for my employer. May be time to rebel, ha! I will follow thread to see if others show interest.
I am originally from the UK and been living in NJ since only February. I am planning to go back in December to visit friends and family for a few weeks and for Christmas. I would be more than willing to give you travel or tourist advice or if you are around in December even a tour of something if that fits with what you want to do. I am originally from the Forest of Dean which I seriously recommend for hiking and countryside stuff. I lived in Bath for 8 years and it is the most incredible city and cannot recommend it highly enough! Depending on what you like though Bath is a very historical city and very close to Stonehenge and Bristol. London is good to visit but I have never been a big fan. Personally I prefer New York.
Let me know if I can help in any way though. I can give more specific details if you want. Check out the places I mentioned and see if they interest you.
I'd love to see London and Scotland and trace my family and see the sights. I was thinking next summer or so, but that might be later than you wanted to go. Not sure if summer is the best time either...
My relative highly recommends the Isle of Skye, and of course a trip to the souvenir shop at the Tower of London is a must...
I just need to squirrel away some money first, recently moved into an apartment and you know how that swallows up spare change.
Nice to see that there is some interest. I've seen a few groupons for London. I'm going to keep researching and post some potential options and we can go from there :)
John - Would love to hear some of your travel tips.
I found this tour http://www.singlestravelintl.com/trip_packages/164-london-at-thanks...
Seems like a good group. Has anyone heard of them?
