For many people a holiday is a time to relax just lying on a beach or lazing by the pool but for some of us, we want to do a little more. You can often travel thousands of miles to another part of the world, and you might want to explore all that the location has to offer. Especially if you do not get to have this type of holiday often. You can learn a lot about a culture of a particular country or group of people from studying historical places, sampling the local traditional dishes and mixing with the local people. Some may say that it is a bit of a waste to go all that way away from home and not get involved in exploring your surroundings but for others this may not be what they want from a holiday.

There are many advantages to booking a holiday abroad in advance. Often you can pick up a bargain if you book early with many holiday companies giving people discounts for not only booking last minute but for booking in advance. Many of us need a holiday to give us time to relax and re charge our batteries, if you are able to book a holiday in advance, it means you can have something to look forward to and to keep you going when times get hard. You may be given the option to spread the cost of a holiday over 12 months or so. This can make holidays a lot more affordable to many people and mean that they do not have to use credit cards or take out loans to afford to pay for them. Paying for a holiday this way may mean you hardly notice the amount every month.

When you go abroad for a holiday it is always nice to spend a bit of tie getting to know the local people and learning about their way of life. So many of us go on holiday, keep ourselves to ourselves and don’t find out much about how the local people live and the culture etc. This may mean we miss out on a lot and leave the country knowing no more about it than when we first arrived Many countries are very happy to welcome visitors and the local people are often all too pleased to help you with whatever you need. When staying in another country you need to respect their rules and regulations and show respect to the people living there. Some countries have very strict policies on drinking, relationships and driving etc that if not adhered to can land you in a whole heap of trouble. The local people will often be able to advise you better on where is great to eat and drink and places of interest to visit and indeed avoid, allowing you to get a true picture of the area rather than...

Do you want a relaxed holiday with great food, excellent wine and friendly locals? If this sounds like your dream holiday then head off to one of the Greek islands where you will be delighted to find lush green hillsides, magnificent sandy beaches, azure blue sea and remarkable historic monuments. A favourite destination for many is the vibrant island of Zante, or to give it it’s Greek name Zakynthos. As this island is one of the most westerly Greek islands, it is renowned for its verdant landscape, which is unusual for many places in this area. A trip up into the mountains often results in discovering a hidden lake where a refreshing dip on a hot day is fantastic. After exploring the superb countryside Zante has to offer, a visit to a quaint local taverna with its excellent home cooked food and delicious beverages is a must. Although not as cheap as it used to be, eating out in Zante is not expensive especially if you are willing to have the special of the day which may be fresh... Read More
