Filed under: Car Hire in Spain     

To believe that you have to be religious to appreciate cathedrals and religious architecture, is to miss out on some of the oldest and most spectacular buildings in the most historic cities in Europe and around the world. And there is nowhere better to begin this architectural appreciation than in Spain; the country that brought Catholicism to Europe by Saint James the Great, the patron saint of Spain, over 2000 years ago shortly after the crucifixion of Christ. Anyway, enough of a history lesson; let’s look at some pretty buildings.

Sixt Festival Fever | UK Summer festival guide

18 Jul 2014 by Nicholas Parry     
Filed under: Events     

Within British culture, the music festival has become synonymous with summer; or at least whichever variation of rain we are experiencing in July and August. Enjoying some much needed fresh air and listening to music in a field has never been so popular; to the extent that pundits are already discussing who will be headlining Glastonbury in three years from now. And with that in mind the music festival tends to take centre stage when commenting on festivals; therefore our hope is a more inclusive list. We’re already well into festival season in the UK, but here is list of the best remaining music, food and cultural festivals.

The Scottish Highland Games | Scotland Guide

26 Jun 2014 by Nicholas Parry     
Filed under: Travel And Leisure     

When you think of Scotland a few things immediately spring to mind: traditional kilts, bagpipes, fine whisky (note that there is no ‘e’, whiskey is Irish), haggis and chilly weather. However, added to the end of that list is most likely the Scottish Highland games. The Highland games themselves refer to a series of events that take place all across the world and at various points of the year – although historically these games did originate from Scotland and accordingly the most notable and largest of these games continue to take place each year in the highlands of Scotland. The exact origin of these games or the nature in which they first started is difficult to place, one thing is certain: components and events of the Highland games have developed over the years to become symbolic of Scotland itself. Although there is no exact blueprint as to what to expect from each city’s and country’s interpretation of the Highland games, they do tend to follow a rough guide and celebrate traditional Scottish and Gaelic culture.

Filed under: DriveNow     

DriveNow is a car sharing mobility concept that was developed as a joint venture between car rental giant Sixt and Bavarian automotive company BMW.

As long as you are still within the business area you can simply park up, walk away and the job’s a good’un. DriveNow is currently available in several cities across Germany and the USA, but it is only a matter of time until it makes its way over to England – with a début naturally planned for London. Once it lands on the shores of Blighty, you will be able to take advantage of this great car sharing program that is already taking Europe and North America by storm.
