Pioneer Dogs: The Inspiring Tales of 8 Top Dogs

Looking after your dog can be a heck of a lot of work – but of course it’s a deal that you’ll gladly accept. The average pooch more than repays his costs with love, companionship, and those inimitable moments of pure personality that seem conjured up from nowhere.

Fictional Places Have Their Passports Too. And They Are the Coolest!

It can be difficult to let go of a beloved fictional universe when you reach the end of the book, series, or movie in which it was contained.

You visited the fictitious homeland of your heroes daily (or more likely spent one ‘bingey’ weekend there!) and suddenly your trip came to an end. If only there were a way to travel there for real…

This thought inspired the people at Budget Direct Travel Insurance to create their newest series of speculative illustrations.

If your tastes tend towards something a little more physical, there are some serious doses of nature to be found on this wildly diverse continent. Tamed or untamed, photogenic or hands-on, Europe has a startling variety of national parks – nearly 500 of them – and if you find yourself attracted to a certain region’s culture you can usually find its natural equivalent in the nearby parkland.
