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.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
