… that’s the question many of us ask, when considering a holiday … along with the cost. Home or away? Since relocating to the UK, in my late 20’s, I’ve done a fair amount of travelling to various parts of the UK and Europe. Although, I still can’t see or hear anything about Venice without my heartbreaking a little, I do adore the British country side. I can’t help but see a fog and think… Sherlock Holmes. I have yet to visit Devon and Cornwall. I’m sure when I do, I’ll be thinking about Daphne du Maurier protagonists.


UK Staycation


freshwater east


My family and I only have staycations, usually to forested parts of the country. There are so many amazing places to visit locally. In fact, a mate recently shared some photos on Facebook, so picturesque, I was fooled into thinking they were  images from Greece , Italy or Cyprus. No! They were all in the UK. Admittedly, I’ve only been to coast around East Sussex.



I’m not familiar what the south west of the country.  I recently had fun taking the Parkdean Holiday quiz to test my ‘local knowledge’ as it were.


Parkdean Holiday Quiz


My score from taking the Parkdean Holiday quiz was 307! There I was thinking ‘wow, that’s good!’ Then I tried again, my score dipped. I wanted to best myself but my score dipped to 240. When I checked the leader board, I realized that I didn’t do as well as I thought. Shock horror! Just goes to show what amazing scenic places there are on this wonderful isle to visit. How about you? How well do you know your country?
