If you have seen any of the Lord of the Rings movies you may already be familiar with the beauty of New Zealand. Most of the amazing landscapes used in the wanderlust movies were filmed on location on the North and South Islands. The North Island is smaller and known for its geothermal features and sandy beaches.

Due to pristine landscape, Wild Camping or Freedom Camping in New Zealand as it is locally known as is one of the most popular activities among adventure travelers. It is basically pulling off by the side of the road and camping out the night amongst the scenic wilderness of the region. This could be in a car, a tent, or a Campervan.

With most of the Universities in Edinburgh located reasonably close to the city centre as well as the central city student accommodation, the students could quickly get to the university by foot or by cycling or could even opt for the regular bus services.

Apart from this, if you want to venture out to the city's hot spots or simply want to explore the new city, hop into the city's tram or go for a comfortable coach journey which connects Edinburgh to the other significant cities in Scotland. And if travelling in public transport is a no-no for you, do not worry! Edinburgh also has the right amount of private transportation options out there for you, including private Taxies and Uber.

2. Restaurants in Edinburgh


The food scene in Edinburgh is as diverse as its population. Right from fine dining to budget-friendly street food to fried mars bars, the city has something or the other to cater as per different tastes.

For some high-end shopping brands and shops, head out to George Street and Princes Street, which occasionally offers student discounts for university students. Looking for something more vintage and out-of-the-box?

Then you should definitely check out Armstrongs, a local vintage store which offers a variety of retro dresses, cowboy boots, cool denim, something more customizable and antique!

5. Free things to do in Edinburgh


Getting to do something, that too without spending lavishly is hands down the best feeling of all. And the city of Edinburgh sure has a way to spoil you with a wide variety of choices. A paradise of art, the Scottish National Gallery and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern art is somewhere an art-lover can escape the reality into the artistic world.

For someone who is into history, The National Museum of Scotland is a place where novelty, history and anthropology collide.

Edinburgh Castle, situated on the top of a volcanic rock known as Castle Rock, in the heart of the English city, is one of the most visited places in Scotland. It was, over time, a royal residence, fortress and prison. The Royal Mile is the backbone of the Old City. Flanked by the homes of the Scottish nobles, it extends from the esplanade of the Castle to the Holyroodhouse Palace.

On this street also stands St. Giles, the Edinburgh cathedral, built in the fifteenth century and the only medieval church in the city. Old Edinburgh is a city of secrets, mysteries and ghosts. After touring every corner of Edinburgh, you can spend a few days exploring Dublin, capital of Ireland, the city founded by the Vikings that went through a stormy past to enjoy a modern and vibrant present.

6. Where to Stay in Edinburgh


Edinburgh is a tourist as well as a student-friendly town which has a lot of accommodation options spread across the city. So if you are a student at the university or a tourist, do not panic about finding somewhere to live. The city offers a range of PBSA as well as short term accommodation options for someone who wishes to stay in the city for a shorter duration.

Although the city of Edinburgh is entitled as the most desirable city in the world, there are few neighbourhoods in the city which are particularly famous as the best place to live in which includes Leith, Old Town, City Centre, Lothian Road, Morningside and Mayfield.

As for the best areas to stay in Edinburgh, if your priority is to sleep in the center, start looking for accommodation in Old Town and New Town, the two most important neighborhoods of the city. In addition to the Old Town and the New Town, there are other neighborhoods a little further away, such as Leith, Fountainbridge or Newington, which are very well connected to the center by bus and also offer a good selection of accommodation.

Edinburgh is a very tourist city, so it will not be difficult to find accommodation for all budgets from B&B and pensions to luxury hotels or hostels with shared rooms. The offer is very extensive throughout the year, although, if you travel in August to visit the Edinburgh Festival or Christmas.

In the supermarkets of Scotland, like Tesco or Sainsbury's, they sell many meals prepared for a few pounds. Lothian buses cover the entire city and surroundings. Is it possible to travel to Edinburgh in winter? Yes, it is possible and, with a good coat, it is not so much! In fact, more than the temperatures, what can pose a challenge for tourism at that time are the few hours of light.

Mount Kailash is the most sacred mountain for four religions: Buddhist, Hindus, Jains and Bon followers. Mt. Kailash is located near Lake Manasarovar and Lake Rakshastal and it has an elevation of 6638 meters above sea level. This sacred mountain is part of the Transhimalaya in Tibet, the only mountain that has never been climbed by humans.

The Buddhists believe that the Mt. Kailash is the home of the Buddha Cakrasamvara, who represents supreme bliss. In Hinduism, Mt. Kailash is home of Shiva, Parvati and their children, Ganesh and Kartikeya. Jainism followers believed that Mt. Kailash is the place where Tirthankara, Rishabhadeva attained liberation.

The Bon religion believes that the mountain is the home of the Sky Goddess Sipaimen. Every year thousands of pilgrims from Tibet, India and Nepal travel to Mt. Kailas to take a pilgrimage journey known as 'kora'. Many tourists around the world book a Mount Kailash tour at the same time when the pilgrims are going on a journey, to be part of this amazing trek and part of the tradition and religious culture of the Buddhists.

Best time to visit Kailash Mansarovar


When is the best time to visit Mt. Kailash is maybe the most often asked question from the travelers. To avoid the rainy season and muddy roads, the best time for Mt. Kailash tour is from April to June and September to October. The period from July and August is the rainy season and from Middle October the roads are covered with thick snow which makes the trek more difficult.

Also, the small guest houses around Lake Manasarovar are closed during the winter, so if you plan to trek during this period, you'll need to stay in a tent, which is not such a good idea. However, summer is the best period for trekking to Mt. Kailash. At this time of the year many pilgrims, both Buddhists and Hindus visit Mount Kailash, so it is an excellent opportunity to be part of the journey together.

How to choose the best Mount Kailash Tour


The travel agencies provide great packages for trekking to the Mt. Kailash. After you choose the period you want to visit Mt. Kailash you need to decide which is the best tour for you. You should consider that almost every Mt. Kailash tour is longer than seven days. However, some packages last even shorter, but if you want to have truly Mt. Kailash experience, you should book a tour longer than one week.

Also, a significant thing when booking Mount Kailash tour is the travel agency. Always choose the Chinese or local travel agency, because a local travel agent knows the place well. All the travel information comes from their first-hand experience. Also, a local Chinese travel agency is more likely to arrange local guides and drivers for you.

Mt Kailash tour during the Saga Dawa Festival


If you decide to go on Mt. Kailash tour in the summer, you should consider booking your trip to the mountain during the Saga Dawa Festival. Trekking with local pilgrims will give you for sure the best lifetime experience and incredible spiritual purification. Saga Dawa festival celebrates the birth, death and enlightenment of Buddha, a great time to experience Tibetan religion and culture.

After you arrive in Lhasa, you will have two days for acclimatization, and a great opportunity to visit the attractions near Lhasa, such as the Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, Drepung Monastery, Sera Monastery and Norbulingka summer palace. On this Mt. Kailash tour you will visit the Yamdrok Lake- one of the three holy lakes in Tibet and famous stupa- Gyantse Kumbun, the most stunning architectural wonder in Tibet.

With your group, you will continue to Rongbuk, where you will have a magnificent view on Mount Everest.

• On the first day of the Saga Dawa celebrations, you will start trekking to Dira-Puk Monastery, which is 20 km or 6 hours trekking.

• The second day of trekking leads to the much higher side of the holy path just beneath the Mount Kailash. You'll be crossing Drolma-la Pass at 5 200 meters above sea level.

• The third day of this Mt Kailash tour is also trekking about 14 km back to Darchen. After a short break in Darchen, you will be arranged to drive about 50km to Lake Manasarovar, one of the three holy lakes in Tibet. Enjoy your view over Lake Manasarovar when the sun will rise in the morning, then start driving back to Saga retracing the same route, you will have a last look of the Mt.Kailash on the way.

• Next day you will be driving back to Shigatse, and the next day you'll arrive in Lhasa, where your trip will end.

Mt. Kailash tour is just one of the many tours that travel agencies are offering but is one of the most wanted tours of the tourists. If your vacation days didn't match with Saga Dawa Festival dates, there are Mt. Kailash tours that are also one in a lifetime journey like this Mt. Kailash tour for example.

Required documents for Mt. Kailash Tour


To enter Tibet, you will need a Tibet Travel Permit. To apply for this document, you will need a valid passport and a approved Chinese visa. You will need to email a scanned copy of your passport and Chinese visa to your travel agent, and they will apply on your behalf.

For visiting Mt. Kailash, you will also need Alen's Travel Permit, Military Permit, Foreign Affair Permit and Frontier Pass, which your travel guide will get for you after you arrive in Lhasa. This is another reason to book a Mt. Kailash tour with a local Chinese travel agency. They surely know which is the best way to get all the necessary permits for you.

Final words

I hope that my experience will help you to choose easily Mt. Kailash tour for your journey in Tibet. Every traveler has his own experience about each trip, but for the Mt. Kailash journey is almost the same for everyone. Almost everyone experiences it the same way and returns home with a purified mind and inner peace. It's not easy to trek to Mt. Kailash but certainly is the most valuable journey.

It has contrast between rest and fiesta of the Balearic Islands, and it has lunar landscapes of the Canary Islands.

Is anything ever perfect in this world?

No, never.

If someone believes in the fact that everything is perfect than they are just fooling themselves into oblivion.

Growing up in a perfect home has its merits. You get the best of all, undoubtedly you are spoon fed but then what if you run out of it? Nothing ever lasts. Such is life.

Each thing has its merit and demerit. Nothing can be ever so superficial and yet so serene even when going on holidays. They can turn into a disaster themselves if not planned on properly or if your expectations aren't met.

High expectations lead to high disappointments so before your dreams turn into nightmares get to know about a place before actually visiting it. Each information researched is worth the while.

When it comes to travelling to other destinations you need to keep an open mind with respect to different factors so that high-end dreams never end.

Most people are attracted to European countries, and they have a strong opinion about it too. And why shouldn't they? It's a classic case of retro and holidays infused together. Spain is such an example, right?

Nothing beats the beauty of its iconic beach fronts and the city squares filled with authentic art style designs and performers making their moves know in the late night streets. It's pretty much an interesting way of getting into a holiday destination. Spain as a destination is a world-class holiday spot for all the sun lovers with just the right amount of heat and cosmic weather playing along with each other.

Spain holidays have always been an exciting part for tourists. People love to come here for food and views and what not but they are bound to have a bad experience as well. Many will argue with the facts but hey to each its own right?

Located in the Iberian Peninsula, Spain consists of 17 autonomous regions with diverse cultures, geography, and traditions. It's pretty, considering the view for the travellers and explorers alike who are interested in getting to know the country in a more peculiar way. Let's look into some major pros and cons of visiting Spain.

Crushing into Pros and Cons

Well, Spain is all wonderful and glorious with its best scenic views of beaches and natural perks but moving aside it has some of its not so popular moments as well.

summer holidays in Spain

Let's Talk About Food

Pros: without a doubt, Spain is known for its seasonal array of meals assorted with fruits and vegetables having a great taste. Seafood is popular among travellers. And don't forget the yummilicious cheeses that are more of a Spanish traditional wheel of the eatery.

For each meal, prices are decent enough and there is lots of food to go around with. You can easily go to the supermarket and buy your own fresh groceries and have a meal the way you want it. Cooking a meal with your own flavours can be mouthwatering in a foreign country and it’s a healthy way of travelling too.

Cons: Although the food of every country is enjoyable once you are tasting it for the first time but thrice a meal and you are done with it. It's not easy to get accustomed to the new flavours that easily and you are bound to find it more unappealing the more days pass by. Not all international products are available and you may find it inconvenient in the middle of your visit to Spain.

While some cafes or eateries are just the right prices many would seem to be unreasonably overpriced. How is it possible to taste a simple Spanish omelet for twice the price when you can preferably make it on your own?

Next, in Line are the Beaches

Pros: Spain is popular for its nudist beaches and over the year's private beach spots had gained popularity. Tourists all over the world enjoy the sunny set of palm induces beaches at Costa Del Sol, Majorca, Fuerteventura, and several other places.

Some beaches are even hidden and hard to find making it more fun and thrilling for the tourists to seek the ways for the cool vibrant underwater reservoir as well. Bars and restaurants are available and you can get yourself a cool drink to enjoy.

Cons: Beach sides are fun but unfortunately overcrowded as well. Summer holidays are prime time for the tourists to come visit Spain and beach is the prime spot that easily filled up. If in need of peaceful shorelines than visiting summer holidays in Spain can cost, you the so-called peace you came for.

You will get bumped into, crazy kids shouting and parents yelling and each of the good spots are easily covered by others so that you can't even find a place to lie down on the cozy sand. That much crowd on the beach is bound to get polluted easily. Trash is everywhere in after hours and it's not such a pretty sight either.

And About the Weather

Pros: Sunshine is heaven isn't it? How many of you actually look forward to the sunny side of Spain? every European does. Even in October, the weather changes. there you have to switch from shorts and tank tops to a full jacket and pants and no one would be the wiser here. Each month is blessed with a different seasonal change and it can be quite appealing too.

Cons: Doesn't sound anything amiss? Well, Spain holidays in summer are supposed to be fun and equally amazing but it's too hot!!! You can be sweating as hard and could easily get skin burned instead of getting a good ol' golden tan on your body you will get skin toned for worse.

Besides staying during the summer holidays is no fun without the air conditioner working at your head properly. And that tends to be quite expensive for some who have a limited budget as the five-star hotels and resorts have the best cooling aids. The low budget hotels often face with failure of their cooling systems.

Doesn't sound much of a holiday when you are all hot and bothered right? But giving a heads up of just a few basic factors was to let you realize that wherever you travel, it comes with all its perils and rewards.

Make your choices in the right direction and keep an open mind, then you are good to go on a vacay in Spain!

3. Eden Valley

There are a number of towns and villages within and adjoining the park, many of which are connected to each other through the park trail system. You can choose to stay entirely in the backcountry, or travel from campsite to campsite or do a little of both.

Motorhomes can be parked in the Lake District car parks overnight but staying in them is not permitted. This allows you to park and head off into the backcountry. If you wish to camp in your RV, you will have to find a spot in one of the many campgrounds located adjacent to the park. There are many options ranging from basic services to high end resorts.

5. Baysbrown Farm


If you would like to get away from the lakes and spend more time in the mountains then consider staying at Baysbrown Farm.

You'll also find several mountain crags that are often covered mist at sunrise, giving the area a true mountain feel.

Birders can find buzzards, kestrels, osprey, hawfinch, auks, kittiwakes, fulmars, and the second largest bird of prey in the UK: the golden eagle. Mammals are common in the park as well, both on land and in the water with red deer, otters, lynx and grey seals calling the park home.
