This week, our Travel Experts face a question from Adam in Milton Keynes his highly anticipated summer holiday.
But before we test them with this week’s question, remember, if you want to ask the Experts a question of your own, we’ve made it super simple — just fire them an email and you could find your question taking centre stage, right here on the STA Travel Blog!
But before that, lets get back to Adam and his question for this week, take it away Adam…
Hi, I’m thinking of taking a trip through Europe on the interrail this summer in my break from uni, could you suggest a route that you think would be good? I will have about 4 weeks in total. Adam, Milton Keynes.
Fantastic question, so what do our Experts think? Let’s find out…
This world is pretty crazy, but that’s all part of its charm, and only goes towards fuelling our desire to get out there and soak it all up. As travel lovers, we’re begging to be shocked, inspired and introduced to new things – and there’s plenty out there to help us achieve it.
One person that knows more than most about some of the weird things this world has to offer is Cat Mills, creator of Wicked and Weird… Around the World so we’ve asked her to share her expertise and some of her favourite examples of some of the more weirder events that you could come across on your travels – if your timing’s right of course…
Ever dreamt of packing up your backpack and heading off around the world for a month, 3 months, 6 months, hell, even a year or longer?
Who hasn’t dreamt of that? A Round the World trip is what it’s all about. Heading off into the big wide world, that feeling of excitement and anticipation that starts at the airport stays with you at every turn. Each day brings a new experience, as each week sees you in a new town, city or even country. You’ll meet people from all over the world, and form friendships that start in hostel dorm rooms, but can stay with you for life.
It’s a dirty rumour that a Round the World trip costs big bucks. But guess what? It doesn’t have to! STA Travel flight guru Ali Dale has put together seven pretty awesome routes you could travel, all starting at under £1000.
And remember, there’s no time limit on these routes – you could be away for 2 weeks or 12 months. The only condition is you have to be back in the UK within a year.

The Spanish people really know how to enjoy life, and you can’t help but to absorb and project this mantra yourself through every pore when visiting Spain.
This is a country that practically pulsates with passion, excitement and a zest for life. The Spanish are immensely proud of their history and their culture and it’s not hard to see why.
Relish the traditional architecture, the colourful street art, the thin streets lined with beautiful flowers, sun drenched beaches welcoming the warm coastal waters and some of the most delicious food you could ever wish to taste.
There are so many different things to do in Spain that this particular high five was no easy task, but I got there in the end, and the result is five experiences that undoubtedly stand out, but are they the right five? Over to you on that one, let me know what you think in the comments box below.
