The United Kingdom (UK)
An absolute belter of a storm rages outside. I’ve been tossing and turning in my cabin bunk, gauging the distance to the bathroom and the likelihood of projectile vomiting on my journey there.
“If you can visit just one place in Scotland…..where would it be?”
Oh you don’t know what you’ve let yourself in for when you present me with a question like that – yet it is an opportunity that comes my way on a regular basis. Cue rubbing of hands as the would-be-small-talk-seeker falls straight into the travel writer’s trap. Half an hour of one-sided rambling later I very often conclude that the answer they are seeking is probably Glen Coe.

Bournemouth is one of the most popular English seaside towns, with 7 miles of sandy beach, a thriving city centre and vibrant nightlife. There are many Bournemouth attractions for all ages, like the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum, the Oceanarium and Hengistbury Head.
Very few kings and queens can boast having a reputation so widely known as that of King Arthur.
