    Car Hire & Road Trip - United Kingdom

    Hi, as a Brit I will say first DON'T DRIVE IN LONDON!! London has excellent public transport so you won't need it, plus the roads are clogged. Great places to road trip - head up north via the lake District (excellent driving, beautiful scenery), have a peek at Hadrian's Wall and Newcastle, then pop on up to Edinburgh, Glasgow, the Highlands and Islands. We headed up to Edinburgh then Mull in 10 days last year, which was brilliant. Good luck with your trip!! over 1 year ago

    What do you think of this itinerary?

    Add Chiang Mai if you can, it's an amazing city and a great hub for getting to other places. If you like mountains head up further North into Chiang Rai province or Pai. Vientiane is worth a couple of days stop if you were planning on just traveling through. Mostly though, SE Asia is really chilled and you can easily change your plans as you go - add bits on/stay longer/leave earlier (this is how I ended up in Krabi for a week rather than 2 days!!). Enjoy :) over 1 year ago

    Best non-touristy things to do/see in New Zealand and Australia?

    When are you going? I visited New Zealand in September/October which is truly off season, so even the most touristy areas like Milford Sound were quiet. Best non-touristy thing I did was sailing up Queen Charlotte Sound (Marlborough Sounds), camping and swimming off the boat and seeing fairy penguins, dolphins and kiwis! I'd recommend the Queen Charlotte Track too if you're into walking, but don't want anything too full on. Is skiing touristy? Skiing by Wanaka is AWESOME, plus Wanaka is the less-touristy version of Queenstown if you don't fancy the crowds. However, a tourist cruise up Doubtful Sound is also worth it - sea lions and penguins galore, plus swimming (and a lot of scrabble in the evening!) even in winter. almost 2 years ago
