Join the fun at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe

If you’ve ever been to Edinburgh you will know that it offers a plethora of things to do and see for anyone visiting the city. The castle stands tall in the middle of the city, with plenty of shops, museums and beautiful parks scattered round about it.

If you’re planning a holiday in Edinburgh there are plenty of things I could recommend you do during your visit, but the best thing you could possible do is go to Edinburgh during the Festival Fringe.

The Festival Fringe is the largest arts festival in the world and takes over Edinburgh for three weeks every August. While it is mainly seen as a comedy festival, it hosts performers from every discipline, including theatre, dance, music and exhibitions.

An important piece of advice is to plan your Edinburgh trip as early as you can. The Fringe Festival is an extremely popular event, and accommodation in the city is snapped up fast as visitors flock from all over the world to experience the festivities. Not only that, but because the Festival is held in August, it means it’s the height of summer, and pretty much when everyone decides to go off on a break. I would suggest booking your accommodation and travel as early as you can, and then you can worry about the specific sights you want to see later, as there is always plenty to do.

The Festival Fringe programme launches in June, which is a complete guide to every show and event that is taking place during the Festival. It’s brilliantly set out and really keeps you organised. It usually comes with a little planner section at the back so you can plan out what shows you want to see and when so you can make the most out of your trip. While the programme is handed out for free in Edinburgh after it is launched, if you are travelling from further away you can purchase a programme from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe website and have it delivered anywhere in the world. You can also view the shows and their details on the website if you don’t want to pay to get the programme delivered, and it will be really easy to pick one up somewhere once you arrive in Edinburgh if you want one to carry around.

One of the great things about the Fringe Festival is how easy locations are to find. Every Fringe location is numbered and gets a huge sign placed outside it telling you which number it is. This means you don’t need to wander around looking for a tiny hidden doorway down one of Edinburgh’s alleyways, as the huge signs make the venues hard to miss. The Fringe programme tells you exactly what number to look out for, so it makes it quite hard to get lost, as long as you’ve got a venues map handy, but again this is included in the programme.

If you fancy a party holiday, then the Fringe could be the perfect time to visit Edinburgh. Due to the fact that a lot of the shows go on late into the night, most clubs and bars have an extended license, with most clubs being open till 5am throughout the Festival. This is amazing if you’re out at a comedy show until about 1am but don’t fancy calling it a night because there are lots of places still open that you can head to. There are also a lot of food stalls still open well into the night, especially in central areas like Bristo Square, meaning you can stay out until you’re literally too tired to stand. Food served during the Festival is always brilliant too, because let’s face it, who doesn’t love 50 tiny doughnuts at 2am?

However, if you’re after more of a family holiday don’t rule the Festival out, as there is plenty for the whole family to enjoy, and not just the night owls. In fact, there are plenty of children’s shows on offer, from plays and puppet shows, to more interactive shows such as children’s discos and art workshops. There are even shows put on by kids TV favourites, such as Charlie and Lola, so your little ones can see their most-loved characters in real life.

Probably one of the best things about the Fringe is you don’t have to spend a lot of money to have a good time. If you’ve spent a lot of money on your accommodation and travel then you’re not going to have a lot of money left over to spend on seeing the sights and having fun. However, a lot of shows at the Fringe are actually free, meaning you can still take in the culture without worrying about your bank balance. The Fringe usually runs tents near the Princess Mall on Princess Street which offer half-price or at least cheaper tickets for shows that are taking place on that day. So if you decide at the last minute you’d quite like to see a comedy show, you can head along there and see if you can grab a bargain.

Walking around the city itself it can be quite a sight considering the Royal Mile gets completely taken over by street performers and people flyering for their shows. It can be great to get sit on the High Street and soak up the Festival atmosphere without even having to open your wallet.

The Festival definitely offers something for everyone, so it’s a great time of year to visit Edinburgh and experience the capital and the surrounding area. However, I would pack for every eventuality, because even though it is August, the Scottish weather can be a tad unpredictable.

Tips When Getting Away for the Weekend

Do you have the weekend off from work and you are thinking about spending it somewhere you can rest and enjoy for a while? If you are considering different countries, then you better decide soon because the spare time you have will not last long. Especially if you are counting in a plane flight to take you somewhere, you have to get to the airport in time for the last-minute tickets to be sold with discounts. If you don’t catch this in time, you will be charged the full price of the ticket and will be waiting for another flight. Add to that the fact that you probably should think about how to reach your chosen destination in no time.

Even a flight may take long if you have chosen to go somewhere that is halfway around the globe. At most, your weekend may be comprised with one day of travelling, one day of relaxation (that is actually spent resting because you are tired from all the travelling), and another day of travelling back home.  That doesn’t sound like much fun, does it? So unless you want to spend your holiday like that, you have to move now and sort things out.

It is not that hard to choose a location. If you want adventure, go get a map and randomly select a place to go to. This is convenient if you have been to different places before. But if you already have something in mind, maybe some place that you have wanted to go to for years, this is probably the time that you should realize that dream. After all, you want to enjoy. And there is nothing better to help you enjoy than spending your free time in a place where you really want to be. That can be said for all kinds of people.

Top 3 Central American Real Estate And Tourism Markets

US buyers looking to purchase overseas property or experience new cultures don’t have to look very far.  Just south of the border lies Central America and a cluster of beautiful countries with affordable real estate options, a host of tourist attractions and a low cost of living.  To make things more enticing, many of the governments of the region have put together special incentive programs to attract international buyers, tourists and retirees to their shores.

Nicaragua – An overlooked gem that does not get that much press attention.  It has put its conflict ridden past behind it and is slowly emerging on the world tourism and investment map.  In 2010 more than 1 million visitors landed in Nicaragua, which is more than ever before.  The real estate options in Nicaragua are plentiful and diverse with investors choosing from historic colonial properties in Granada, lake view options and Pacific coast real estate around San Juan del Sur.  Here’s more on Nicaragua real estate.

Costa Rica – Costa Rica has been attracting US retirees and investors for decades and has the largest population of US expatriates in the region.  Some parts of the country, such as the northern Guanacaste region, have emerged as mature vacation destinations with major hospitality brands rubbing shoulders with signature golf courses.  But it’s still possible to find hidden pockets with much lower prices.   Check out the southern Pacific and the Caribbean coasts for example.  The Central Valley area around San Jose is also popular amount US retirees.

Belize – For many years Ambergris Caye was the only vacation destination that people spoke about when discussing Belize.  While the island still retains its position as the most important location for both tourism and investment, other locations are not far behind.  The Placencia Peninsula for example is starting to attract investor interest and is developing fast on the back of infrastructure improvements and amenity upgrades.  Other areas such as Corozal and Hopkins are also worth a closer look.  Here’s more on Belize real estate.

How to Save on Travel

Summer is looming in the distance, and with that so are travel plans. Many families are always looking for the cheapest deals, and best rates when it comes to overnight vacations. There are a few age old tips that you can follow to increase your chances of an even cheaper vacation. After all, a vacation should be stress free, not burdened with debt and bad choices.

One way to land a cheaper vacation is to consider multiple options. While you may have your heart set on the beach, you may be able to get a more economical vacation in the mountains. Learn which seasons offer the cheapest rates for where you want to go. If your heart is really set on the beach, then visit after summer is over, and in the early fall months. The weather is still warm in southern regions, less people will be there, and you can often get hotels for half the cost. This kind of thinking can really go for any kind of vacation.

Weigh your options on whether to drive or fly. When you drive, you have to factor in the cost of gas, and hotel stays against airline prices. If you can book your flights several months in advance, chances are you can get a really great deal, and skip driving all together.

If finances are really tight, then you may want to pursue a closer venue. Places like state parks can offer great prices on condos, cabins, and even hotels. To make your vacation more exciting, try to plan your trip around a festival, where entertainment, and games are plenty. Also, many state web sites, and chamber of commerce will offer discount packaging for in state guests. Be sure to request a state travel catalog where listings of vacation offerings will be kept.

When you travel with kids, consider cutting back on the dining out options to save money. Instead opt for a small kitchen, where you can cook your own food. Head to a local grocery store to stock up on easy, but fun meals. If you plan your meals ahead, you can bring your own coupons to save even more. Also, check the internet for coupons, and discounts for restaurants near the area that you will be visiting.

Another way to help cut back on costs is to travel with another family. You can car pool together, and split gas costs. Rent a large condo, or share hotel rooms, and you will be eligible for discounts. Plus, if you all have children, the kids will need less entertainment, and play amongst themselves. Also, the adults can easily trade off nights on which couple gets to go out a lone, and which one gets to babysit. Give it some thought, and see if there are other families trying to save pennies on vacation.

Be sure to check with local travel agencies as they will often have many package deals that you can consider. Many times agents will be able to give you a discount on tickets, hotels, cruises, and even restaurants. However, when booking through an agent make sure they have a reputable reputation, and know what they are doing. There is nothing worse than booking a vacation through a fraudulent travel agent. Research is always a safe bet.

With keeping these travel solutions in mind, you can enjoy a relaxing, wonderful vacation for you, and your family. So do your research, and start planning today.
