Trends / Adventure

Scotland is a veritable paradise for thrill seekers and there are loads of activities that will get your adrenaline pumping. Here are some of the best.

If you fancy bungee jumping, you can take a leap off a crane in Glasgow with Highland Fling Bungee. For a slightly more sedate activity, try paragliding on the isle of Arran. You can go up just once or sign up to a multiday course with Flying Fever.

At ground level there are loads of thrills to be had too. One good spot is Knockhill Racing Circuit near Dunfermline, where you can take out racing cars and get to grips with the 1.3-mile circuit.

If you prefer to propel yourself under your own steam, Scotland is an amazing place for mountain biking. Check out the 7stanes mountain biking center in the Scottish Borders, where there are trails to suit all abilities.

Another super fun outing is land yachting, where you hurtle along the sand in a go kart with a sail. You can try it with Blown Away Experiences in Saint Andrews, with the wide sandy beach at West Sands.

In the winter months, choose from one of five ski resorts. The pick of the bunch is CairnGorm Mountain in the Cairngorms National Park.

Places to Stop on a Road Trip in Ireland

Ireland is a gorgeous country with friendly citizens and lots of areas to explore. Many travelers stick to Dublin, Cork or Belfast when they visit, but there are many cute and charming towns in between these major cities that should not be ignored. The best way to see all these places is to rent a car and do a road trip through Ireland. This is a great way to make travel memories that are memorable and off the beaten path. Ireland is a safe and easy country to navigate, so it’s a perfect trip for firs- time travelers as well as more experienced travelers.

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
