Forget about Greece and go and visit Spain

Every year millions of holidaymakers head towards the Mediterranean in search of sun sex and a good time. We have here is a collection of reasons to why you should go and visit Spain perhaps the Canary Islands instead of heading to Portugal or to Greece.

For travel purposes this means that Greece is not a practical location to go in visit even though the country has some immensely beautiful monuments and ancient architecture.

Because Greece is next to Turkey it is one of the main entry points for millions of refugees who are fleeing Syrian conflict this means that many desperate people are stuck care in the hope of getting to North Europe. This means that there is an increase in crime and this is not a safe tourist destination to travel. Greece is a hot country, especially in summer. If you are walking around you might get thirsty. Make sure you are fully equipped with the right hydration equipment, you can get it from this site.

Spain on the other hand does not have any of these serious problems and the local people are very happy on average despite having an economic crisis in this country also.

Considering that you can get great weather in Spain and in particular the Canary Islands this is the much safer option of having an amazing winter getaway if you are from North Europe or the United Kingdom.

This is something you will realize once you spend some time here.

Tenerife is a paradise for marine life, many hundreds of different species can be found here including door things, Wales, jellyfish, sea cucumbers, and a whole range of travel tropical fish which make it one of the best locations for scuba-diving and boast tours. The island is also extremely safe with low rates of crime, a friendly local population as a complete lack of any security threats such as terrorism which other destinations such as Egypt and Morocco suffer from to this day.You are never more than 2 hour away from the office or British consulate in the capital of Santa Cruz. Here you can go to find out any information you are missing on obtaining paperwork from Spain or you want to marry someone from outside the EU

 

There are two main airports on the islands. The largest and the biggest is in the south which is connected to the major playing roots. The smaller of the two airports is at the north of the island into capital Santa Cruz. This airport became less popular because of the notorious plane crash in which over 200 people died in the 1990s. Local people if you have a private tour your tour guide will be sure to explain about these interesting stories.

Paragliding is also one of the most popular activities here and the world record for the longest ever paragliding flight of over 45 minutes is held here on the island of Tenerife.

The UK – go for the food, stay for the weather

There are many points to consider when traveling to the UK

This is a shame and there are many interesting parts to the country and many variations in the local culture.

About more about British culture. Actually, this has been one of the most exported cultures around the world, with the English language being a legacy of that. Sport such as cricket which is popular in India and Pakistan was brought over by the British in the colonial era.

Study – Every year hundred of thousand of international students come the UK to take part in further education. Many of these students pay 10’s of thousands in expensive tuition fees which pumps millions into the local economy. A large percentage of foreign students come from India and also Malaysia and China.

Visas – Getting a Visa to enter the United Kingdom is not always easy and the rules are often changing. Please make sure you have gone to the Home Office’s website and informed yourself about all the rules and regulations. If you need help sorting out a short term or long term visa then contact the legal team at ISH.

Where. Where is best to go visit in the UK? That would depend on who you ask. Although the majority of people go to London which is the economic hub of the country and where all the best paying jobs are.

Culture – Britain is probably the most multicultural country in Europe with people from every part of the world who have chosen to live here. Weather – Let’s be completely honest, Britain has awful weather. Although when there is sunny day it makes it all that more special.

Language – Not many people know this outside the UK. The welsh have their own language and they are quite proud of it!
