Mark Twain once said golf is a good walk spoiled. If you don’t share this opinion, the British Isles may be the ultimate quest when it comes to courses. St. Andrews in Scotland is the most well-known course among golfers and walkers alike. This course is the first professional golf course where players tried to master the game 600 years ago.


Gaining access to this institution is easier than you think. For prime times, book six months to a year in advance. This means in order to get a private tee time between March and November 2019, you had to book in September 2018. Even if you miss this window, there is still the chance to book in less desirable conditions, meaning December to March, or to take your chances as a single golfer and show up on the day of play. Just remember you do have to be a certain caliber of golfer to play; for more information on requirements look here.


Keep in mind there is a rich golf culture in other countries, too, like Wales. These courses may not be steeped in as much history as St. Andrews, but they are every bit as beautiful. Try Nefyn Golf Club in Northern Wales. It boasts a sea view from every green, or Lahinch Golf Club in West Ireland. It has been described as the St. Andrews of Ireland although it defies comparison. If a golf vacation is on your bucket list, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales are your destinations.

How to Get From the Airport to Marrakech

The mystifying city of Marrakech, Morocco, is a delight to the traveler’s senses. As a fast-growing tourist destination, the largest city in Morocco welcomed a record-breaking 2 million visitors in 2017. Marrakech’s Medina dates to the 10th century when it was a Berber walled city, and its souks sell everything from fabrics to carpets to household goods, for negotiable prices.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
