Why Driving Is the Best Way to Explore the UK

The United Kingdom is filled with so many great places to visit. The beautiful city of London, the castles of Scotland andthe gorgeous landscapes of Wales are just waiting to be explored. There are many ways to fully enjoy the beauty of United Kingdom, but the best way to explore the nations is by driving. There are several reasons why driving in the UK is a good idea for your next trip.
You Can Drive with Your License
Whether you’re visiting the UK on a vacation or you’re moving to one of the cities in the country, you can easily get a car and start driving with a valid driving license from your country. The driving license is valid for up to 12 months, after which you’ll need to take a driving test and qualify for a British driving license.
The test itself is easy to pass too. There are a lot of free driving theory practice tests you can take online. Even better, you can also get a provisional driving license and still be able to drive until you qualify for a full UK driving license so long as a qualified driver is in the car with you. It’s really that simple.
You Don’t Even Need Your Own Car
Rental car companies enable you to rent a car at the airport from the moment you arrive in the UK. You also don’t need to worry about returning the car back to the same airport. If you plan to arrive at Heathrow and depart from Glasgow Airport at the end of your trip, for example, you can simply drop the rental car off at your departure airport.
This means you are free to explore the best parts of the UK through most of your holiday in the country. There is no need to allocate half of the vacation time for the trip back to Heathrow, for example, just to return the rental car.
There are a lot of support offices along the way too. Let’s say your car breaks down in the middle of the trip. You only need to contact the nearest support office and you will have a replacement car delivered to you in a matter of hours – even minutes.
The Back Roads Are Amazing
You can’t love road trips before you have one in the UK. The British countryside is an amazing place to be, filled with great – and immensely beautiful – roads to explore. You can drive for hours and not feel bored or tired at all.
Prepare for some breath-taking landscapes, great stops along the way and some of the best holiday attractions in the UK to visit as you drive around the United Kingdom. All you have to do is plan a suitable route from one point in the country to another and you will have an amazing holiday experience nonetheless.
So, what are you waiting for? Plan a road trip across the UK for your next holiday and have an amazing experience to tell your friends about back home. Be sure to use the tips we discussed in this article to make your trip that much more enjoyable.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
