3 Ways to Holiday on the Move

If you spend a lot of time sat at a desk for your work then you probably don’t want to spend your vacation sitting in one spot watching the world go by.  You will want to keep on moving on your vacation regardless of whether it is on your own two feet or with the help of a vehicle.  Here are three ways to holiday on the move that will make sure you return home feeling like you have had a real adventure.

Take a Campervan Trip

One way to make sure that the scenery around you changes every day is to take a campervan trip in the UK. There is nothing like hitting the open road with a map and some tunes to ensure a relaxing vacation.  A campervan can sleep up to nine people but is still small enough to maneuver easily through traffic and park without a lot of effort.  It is a nice way to explore areas like Cornwall where you can drive between small sea towns, Yorkshire where you can camp and become one with nature, or stop in Wiltshire and see the wonders of Stonehenge. Check out Spaceships Rentals for more information on renting a campervan.

Cycle in France

For a really active holiday you could try cycling in France.  There are several areas of France that are popular for cycling and they offer well laid out routes, less traffic, and plenty of things for cyclists to see. The Loire Valley is full of castles, vineyards, beautiful rivers, orchards, and several World Heritage Sites.  Make sure you see the stunning Château de Chambor, the largest castle in the valley that blends medieval and classical Italian architecture.  Ride through the valleys of L’Anjou and the Touraine and be sure to sample the wine that these regions are famous for.  The routes are mainly flat and the hills are gentle so it is great for cyclists with less experience as well. Brittany is a region in the northwest that the Tour de France passes through.   You can cycle along quiet country roads with few vehicles, beautiful canals, or you can rent bikes that can travel along old railway tracks. Be sure to visit Quimper Cathedral, a gothic cathedral in the coastal town of Quimper and Château de Dinan in the town of Dinan. Riding all day long you will build up an appetite so make sure you sample the fine food that the region you are in is famous for.  France is famous for its cheese so make sure you sample as many different kinds as you can.
