With the effects of Covid-19 ravaging the tourism industry, it is no surprise that many people are choosing to stay home. Short trips to nearby locations are a great way to still satisfy your wanderlust and make some new discoveries in the process.
Now, this isn’t to say that you can’t or shouldn’t travel further afield. In fact, a growing segment of the tourism industry is traveling by motorhome. Worldwide motorhoming holidays are a safe way to see the world without opening yourself up to the risks of traveling in public transportation and staying in hotels that may not be as sanitized as should be necessary during a pandemic.
In this article, I will give you a couple of examples of some local trips to take within the UK and also how you can travel abroad by taking a motorhome holiday.
Get off the beaten path in Canada
As borders are opening, the travel possibilities are also expanding. But, travel does have some risk which is why a motorhome holiday is the way to go. You can truly get off of the beaten path.
A tour of Canada in the autumn is ideal for nature lovers as the fall foliage is bursting with colors. And the brisk weather invites you inside to enjoy some hearty Canadian cuisine that perfectly blends Continental with the New World.
To beat the dark and dreary winters, think about heading to the Southern Hemisphere and enjoying the beaches of Australia. In your motorhome, you can find those tucked away remote beaches where you aren’t forced to sit cheek by jowl with other tourists who don’t have a camper.
Unparalleled Beauty In Wales
If you’re eager to get away from city hustle and bustle, the Gower Peninsula is the part of Wales you need to visit. It’s just four hours’ road trip from London, but if you were to traverse the globe, you’d be hard-put to find a prettier spot.
Stroll on remote-seeming beaches, visit the ruins of Pennard Castle , and then enjoy some internationally-renowned cuisine (Yes! In Wales!) at top-rated restaurants or head for the more down-to-earth eateries to grab a feast for the whole family.
Have a Highland Fling
If you’re really looking to get away from the crowds and looking to be socially distant the Scottish Highlands will do. The scenery is camera-ready, and you’ll enjoy some of the best walking trails the UK has to offer. Mountains and lochs are calling you, and there’s no shortage of home-away-from home comforts to suit every budget if you want to make a weekend of it.
From majestic natural beauty to historical sites and ruins, and from adventures to sheer relaxation, the Scottish Highlands has what it takes for a great day or weekend away.
Home or Away
There is absolutely no reason to be bored in the UK summer, and although 2020 is a stay-at-home year, it provides an excellent opportunity for planning adventures at home or abroad. After all, once the need for isolation ends, you’ll be raring to go! Planning is only a small part of the fun, but pleasant anticipation is just a thought away.
