Information » World, Europe, UK & Wales
From a week in Tenby with your parents, to saving your hard-earned pennies for a trip around Europe, there’s no substitute for making your way into the big wide world. In every country you’ll find a different culture, history, religion, language, set of customs or political system that will interest you and expand the way you see things.
There are many ways to prepare yourself for travel. You can pick up second-hand Lonely Planet and Rough Guide books in charity shops or check out their websites, or pop into your nearest travel agent for some advice.
