Off the coast of Wales, Ramsey Island features high sea cliffs and a wondrous natural habitat. Spot gray seal colonies on the beaches during the fall and early winter. As a cultural destination, Ramsey Island is a holy site for its connection with Saint David, the Welsh patron saint. © Acceleratorhams | Dreamstime.com

Set off on two wheels and you’ll be able to cover a great deal of distance in Wales. The scenery is fantastic, and there are 1,400 miles of National Cycle Routes to follow.


One of the most famous routes is the Celtic Trail West, a 143-mile ride through southern Wales. It’s a great way to explore the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.


One alternative is the Celtic Trail East, slightly easier on the legs. You’ll see one of the finest castles in Britain at Chepstow, and you can take the aerial Transporter Bridge over the water when you reach the River Usk.


Take on a challenging ride across mid-Wales with the Lôn Cambria route and you’ll wind along mountain rides and the River Ystwyth. At 113 miles it’s a long way to go in one day, so all but the most experienced cyclists should probably stop off along the way.


If you are in Cardiff and want to see some countryside, hire a bike and set off along the Taff Trail. At 55 miles you can do it in a day and then be back to the capital city in time to check out one of the many restaurants in a buzzing culinary scene.

Online Resources for Finding Jobs Abroad

Many travelers are exchanging their regular home lives for a more exciting life abroad. However, no matter where in the world you visit, money is needed to live a comfortable life. Gaining work experience abroad can diversity a resume and open opportunities worldwide. For travelers who wish to live a more nomadic lifestyle, getting a short-term job in a country is also a great option. This will ensure travelers have enough money to get by and give them experience. Before leaving for a country or while in a foreign land, travelers can use the internet to find jobs or local resources.

One of the best ways to experience and learn more about a culture is by looking for and picking through the local markets. Depending on the destination, markets can be found in the out-of-the-way nooks and crannies of larger cities or can function as attractions on their own merit.

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.
