It seems hard to believe now but it wasn’t too long ago that Glasgow was regarded as a smelly, impoverished, dirty city with huge crime problems. These days, it is an attractive and appealing place, although it still has an undeniably gritty feel to parts of it.
I was chatting to a friend yesterday who had just returned from a 2 week break at Disney World in Orlando, Florida and I was asking them if they’d had a good time? Their answer was interesting.
Getting on a train is usually an everyday experience. You might even call it boring when the trip involves the usual daily commute from home to work or back.
Yet, all over the world there are some amazing train rides that will thrill you. Probably the best trip of this type I have ever made was on the incredible Nariz del Diablo (Devil’s Nose) ride in Ecuador.
If there’s one thing we and our children love, it is nature. We do our best to get out into the countryside when we’re at home, and we also like to carry this on when we go on holiday too. Recently we returned to the North Yorkshire Moors for a holiday and while we were there we visited the Saltholme RSPB Centre.
If you want to see some spectacular pyramids in a natural setting then you might think that Egypt is the only choice of destination for doing this.
However, before packing your bags and heading off for an adventure on the Nile you could consider some of the other places around the world with stunning pyramids.
Interestingly, Sudan has more of these structures than any other country, while you will also find them in places such as Nigeria and Mexico. Having said that, is there anywhere more thrilling to go pyramid hunting then in Guatemala?
