Europe - UK & Ireland

I have decided to fly to Edinburgh after a week long trip to Barcelona. I'm going May 26-June 1. I'd like to make the most of my time there and want to spend one day in Edinburgh and then get out. I know this is quite general but I'd appreciate any ideas on how to navigate the country. I am thinking of renting a car and just know that I'll start in Edinburgh and have to end in Edinburgh. I am most captivated by landscapes, the Highlands and castles and am incredibly intrigued by the island of Skye. Should I pre-book B&Bs or just see where I end up after a day's drive and take my chances. Again, sorry so vague but I'm just now determining what and how to make the most of my time. Thanks..
Hi, I am planning to take my family to Scotland for a holiday sometime in July. We were first planning to go to Wales but now we are tempted to go to Scotland instead. :)
We will be taking the train from London to Edinburgh. Maybe spend two nights or so in Edinburgh. And then I was thinking maybe we could go to Oman or Isle of Skye from there for a few days.
We will be relying on public transport and are looking for beautiful scenic mountains and pretty picturesque villages. What would you suggest?
Hello, I will be moving to London in the fall and I am just wondering how easy it will be to get a temp job there? And one that would pay enough to live okay on. I have a friend who lives there now and she said it is very easy to get one. I want to beleive her but I also just think shes saying that because she wants me to move! Anyways if anyone has any experience with this let me know, any information would be great.
Hello all, I'm sure this has been asked before but to be honest I'm to tired and lazy right now to do a search. I am taking the Eurostar to London tomorrow from Paris and wanted to kill approx 6 hours before I head to Heathrow. Is there anywhere I can store my backpack for a few hours. Carrying it around while I check out some sites is not something I wish to do.
Thanks is advance for advice and sorry for my laziness.
The Olympics begin with the Women´s football on the 25th July, and end on the 12th August.
So, here´s the question :-
Of the 19 days of the event, how many do you guess will see rain in some form or other ?
Feel free to ´categorize´ your answers - Showers, steady drizzle, torrential downpours, thunder & lightening storms etc. etc.
Shall I bring summer clothing or pullovers and jackets ?
Hello All -
Can anybody tell me if there'll be anything for me to seek out Olympic-wise in London when I visit late next week? I wasn't sure if it'd be worth my time to seek anything out at this point or not.
I am thinking of going over to Dublin soon to apply for a visa at the Iranian consulate. I could post my application but as I have never been to Dublin I thought it would make a nice trip for me and my children.
The address I need to go to is 72 Mount Merrion Avenue Blackrock Co. Dublin.
Can anyone tell me the easiest way to get there from the airport, and if there is reasonably priced accomodation near by.
Any help would be appreciated.
What is the cheapest way to get from London to Paris!?!

Hi I would like to recommend place to visit. Especially now, before Olympics :-)
This is Grays in Essex. Very close to London, only 35 minutes by train, and about 20 minute (no traffic) to City of London.
You can drink glass of vine on the bank of river Thames in local pubs.
Check this website and see gallery section grays essex
maybe you will like :-)
Camile, grays fun
Just checking that having a Eurail Pass ticket will be accepted when landing in England as proof of some kind of ongoing ticket. We don't have a specific ticket out of England yet so wanted to make sure we won't get turned away at the door kinda deal. Thanks
I'm traveling to Ireland and will be staying there 5 days. I'm getting there May 23rd at 9:30 and leaving the 28th in the morning. It is my first time traveling to Ireland so I want some input for an itinerary. It's only two people in their late 20. We are traveling in a budget. We would like to see the main attractions in Dublin and go to the wicklow mountain and/or Powercourt. In your opinion for the wicklow mountain or the powercourt should we take public transportation or book a tour? If a tour is preferable, which one do you recommend? Should we visit both of these place or skip one?
Also is the cliff moher a most? Lastly, I'm still looking for a hotel (budget) if anyone has a recommendation it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for all your help! Very excited about this trip.
You might even be able to get rid of/pick up a London/UK guide book.
I am a solo traveler and planning to visit Scotland in the next week. Can anyone let me know which routes are the most scenic and where can I find the best Scottish food?
