Wales is a fairly compact country, but it’s home to some outstanding scenery. Here are some of the best drives to take during your trip.

 

The first option is a jaunt along the River Wye, which marks the border between England and Wales. Start at 11th-century Chepstow Castle, and then visit Tintern Abbey, a set of 12th-century monastic ruins, before following the river along to Hay-on-Wye.

 

The Brecon Beacons are a famous spot for outdoor adventures, but you can also appreciate them from your car. The Abergavenny-Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen route takes you through some spectacular scenery, and even includes the Black Mountain Pass, one of the most famous drives in the United Kingdom.

 

If you want to look at the sea, try the Pembrokeshire coast for some beach-hopping between Tenby and St Davids. You’ll get to see resort towns like Tenby and idyllic beaches such as Barafundle Bay. Make sure you stick around for sunset over the water.

 

Some may sniff at a road trip that covers just 20 miles, but the Abergeswyn Pass is an intense experience. Deep in the Cambrian Mountains, this old sheep track is steep and winding, demanding of both driver and car. Make sure you are prepared.

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.

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?
