Welcome to the UK, described by Lonely Planet in the latest UK guide as "simply one of the most beautiful islands on earth". You'll find that whilst people can appear flippant and/or sarcastic on this branch, it's only part of the unique British sense of humour so don't take it personally.

I am planning a 3 week trip to England, Scotland, and France. It isn't until May 2017 so I have some time for saving, I was just wondering if anyone had tips for calculating a ballpark number for what I would need to save. I was thinking of renting a car for at least half of the trip, don't need fancy lodging or anything, but would like to enjoy some nice meals and cultural experiences. 4500 was my guesstimate, but am only just starting my research.
I was planing to go to Up Helly Aa in January 2017 and there seems to be little or no accommodation left. So I was wondering if anyone knows of places to wild camp walking or cycling distance from Lerwick at all?

Day 2 - tour Cotswold area. Sleep in Cheltenham
Day 3 - tour Cotswold area. Sleep in Oxford.
Day 4 - tour Oxford. Sleep in Oxford
Day 5 - return rental car and take…
We are planning to visit Kerry County in late September/Early October. One of the ideas was to cycle Ring of Kerry. However we are not experienced cyclers (and frankly one of us is begginer). Do you think is worth a try? Or is better to rent a car a do small bike excrusions locally? The weather still should be ok?
Every advice will be very appreciated.
Does anyone know of cheap or local bus services from Heathrow to Loxwood or Billingshurst in Sussex.
National Express has ridiculously high prices and google fails to return anything but their fares....
