One of the biggest changes Britain could face after last month’s referendum decision to Brexit the EU is the cost of our annual holidays soaring. We could see the cost of flights and currency exchange rates rocket due to the declining pound value which may mean Britain sees the rise of the staycation; that we opt to holiday here, rather than venture overseas.
It wouldn’t be a bad choice – The UK is home to hundreds of hidden beauty spots, glittering coastlines and romantic hideouts, suitable for all types of trip.
Let’s take a look at our 10 most favourite UK staycation locations that rival our overseas counterparts… Read More

If you’ve booked flights in the last, well, few years, you’ll know that on top of the cost of your flight, many airlines now charge you to check a bag into the hold – my recent experience with a budget airline saw the cost of a 20kg bag cost £50 EACH WAY!!
Yes I know, the fares are cheap on budget flights for a reason (Oh my, do I know!) but whacking on an extra £100 surely negates the whole “budget” thing, doesn’t it?! Read More

Father’s Day; across the world, it’s a day dedicated to honouring and showing appreciation for not only your father, but depending on where you are in the world, any important male figure in your life.
With this in mind, we thought it’d be quite cool to pick some hometowns of a few truly kick-ass dads from around the globe to see how their different home countries celebrate the day! Read More

It is estimated that 3.5 million people in Britain have been diagnosed with Diabetes, with 10% of adults being Type 1. Of the 31,500 children that have been diagnosed, 95.1% of them are also Type 1.
What is Type 1 Diabetes?
When the body is no longer able to produce insulin because the insulin producing cells in the body have been destroyed.
What is Type 2 Diabetes?
This occurs when the insulin that’s produced in the body doesn’t work correctly, or when insulin producing cells are unable to create enough insulin.
Flying with Diabetes
As we know, when it comes to hand luggage, security in UK Airports is pretty strict; no liquids over 100ml, restrictions on the size of your bag and of course, no sharp objects!
So what happens when you come to fly but happen to have Diabetes for which you may need a high glucose drink or an injection of insulin? Are airports willing to let you take your 150ml can of Coke and your glucose monitor through security without question? Read More

We know that you don’t need a specific day of the year to show your better half how much you love them, so don’t worry, this post won’t be littered with Valentine’s clichés and photos of chocolate covered strawberry platters with the Eiffel Tower providing a backdrop.
What we’re bringing you is a selection of adventure breaks instead. As appealing as spending a Valentine’s weekend surrounded by other loved up couples in Paris or Rome sounds, in reality, it’ll just be crowded, cheesy and let’s face it, twice as expensive as it would be any other time of year!
