the Beach Resort Town of Barry

Take a Vacation in The Beach Resort Town of Barry, Vale of Glamoran.

Barry is a city in the county of Vale of Glamorgan near the city of Cardiff in Wales. It is on the northern coast of the Bristol Channel. The area is home to several beaches and the Barry Island Pleasure Park.

There is evidence that the area has been inhabited from the New Stone age as polished stone ax heads were found along with some flint tools. There have been excavations of Bronze Age sites and there is an Iron Age fort found when they built Barry College. Barry Island is thought to have been a raider base around 1087 when the Vikings were trying to gain land in the area. Penarth is one great place.

After the Normans came this area was given to two families to build manners; the Penmark and Dinas Powys. These lands were further split into several dub manors and one family built Barry Castle on the high grounds from which they could see Bristol Channel. It really was not a big castle just a stone manor house. It was added to in the 14th century giving it more of a castle look with a large hall and gatehouse and the ruins are still there today.

During the late 1800′s coal was being mined in Cardiff and Barry Railway Company was built so that coal could be transported from Cardiff to the docks in Barry for shipment. This made it a great port and there were so many ships ship repair yards were built as were flour mills and ice factories. Population rose with all the industry and since those that worked hard needed somewhere to have fun they took Barry Island, which was in the middle of the channel and made it a resort. Today the Island is a pleasure park and beach resort with over 50 rides that are great fun for the whole family.

Today the heavy industry has all but stopped and the town has gone more into leisure and tourism endeavors. There are wonderful shops to find new and used wares, there are cafes and restaurants that serve delicious food. Arcades are abundant as are some amusement halls that visitors will enjoy.

Other attractions are Triassic Towers which is on the sea front and is an indoor adventure center. Quasar Center is where you can play a game of laser (like paint ball). A great museum to see is Barry Island Railway Heritage center and you can ride on a stream train. Visit the Llanerch Vineyard to try some of their wine and stay at the Bed and Breakfast.

Most accommodations right in Barry are Bed and Breakfasts or guest houses. There is the Hillside Bed and Breakfast an Edwardian house with great hospitality. New Farm Bed and Breakfast is a working farm where you can stay and participate in farming activities. Tadross Hotel is one of the few hotels in the area and it is a three start hotel with en suite rooms. The Marine hotel only has six rooms but they are clean and comfortable. There is a restaurant and bar downstairs.

Barry is a charming little town with a most wonderful beach. There are other things to go see all within a few miles drive too. The beach is great and it should provide you with a wonderful vacation. Vale Tourism.

Cyprus beach

Holiday in Cyprus

How much did you actually know about Cyprus? This little island country in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea is actually a hidden treasure box full of surprises, much to our delight. My aunt, Tina, brag much about it when she got home from her unusually long voyage through the Mediterranean Sea with her fellow club mates. The story I heard about Cyprus from my aunt piqued my interest. So, in the next two months, I and my best friend-turned-lover decided to spend our holiday in Cyprus. We had little hope when we first start, but much to our delight, Cyprus is a place more than we bargained for.
We first arrived in Cyprus by means of air as it is the easiest way to get to Cypruss, there are however several boats and cruises that connect to Cyprus as well. We immediately went to search for our accommodation. While there are many hotel in Cyprus, we still have to be smart to choose a good accommodation. We have done our study before went to this trip, however, so we immediately goes to Apollonia Holiday Apartments in Ikarou, Paphos. While it might seem very small, it is actually quite a nice place, considering the price is very affordable. The apartment was spacious and clean, and the pool and lounge is in a very good condition. Not to mention the building is located in the heart of Paphos area, so it was easy to get around.
We went ahead to the many historical building sites in Paphos area. The first one is Kato Paphos Archaeological Park, an area of archaeological “digs” and stunning mosaics which have been superbly preserved and still being worked on, and it is certainly a place worth visit for the price of 4 euro! It is a great place for leisure walk, and remembers to bring your own water as it is quite hot and there are no real shades here.
Ayios Neophytos Monastery is our next destination. The church is a beautiful place but you have to respect the religion codes here and dress appropriately, meaning that woman must cover the shoulders and knees. You can also go up to the caves with one euro for entry fee. You can’t take photos here, but there are some amazing paintings in this cave and you get to see the small conditions how the monks lived.
Aphrodite’s Rock had a nice view, but the only attraction here is a single rock in the sea. It has a great story to it, about Greek gods and Adonis. Get pictures of it and the sea around it, it is very beautiful with crystal clear waters.
As day goes by and our stomachs’ getting louder, we decided to take a little break and had late lunch in Laona Restaurant. This small and lovely family-run restaurant had a great atmosphere. The food is rather good, and as it was quite popular, the place often swarmed by tourists.
It was quite the experience we had in Cyprus. Although we haven’t been able to go to many places, it was still a rewarding experience. All those Roman and Turkish atmosphere is sure to reel you in and don’t forget to buy the Cypriot wine as a gift for your home.

For football fans, particularly Manchester United fans, a visit to their stadium, the Old Trafford in Manchester, is a chance to visit the site of some of football’s greatest moments and see where some of football’s most famous players played and trained. We were lucky enough to have a chance to visit this gorgeous and historical stadium in our holiday in Manchester last summer.

The first thing that came across our mind after we arrived in the city of Manchester was to find a hotel. We had to choose a suitable hotel in Manchester for a place to rest. There are several hotels available near to the stadium, such as Capthorne Hotel, Old Trafford Lodge, Trafford Hall Hotel, and many more. There is a huge variety of hotels so you will not find any difficulty to find a suitable hotel in Manchester. We finally chose to stay at Old Trafford Lodge. After checking in to our hotel, we made our way to the Old Trafford by tram.

At the location, we were welcomed by the huge presence of the stadium and the museum of Old Trafford. The entry ticket for a tour to the stadium is £10. We bought the ticket and went straight to the museum. The first thing we came across in the museum is the memorial of Sir Matt Busby. He was the legendary manager of Manchester United FC who managed the team in 1945-1969. The story of the Munich air disaster of 1958 was also told. George Best is also having a special place in the museum. We can see all of his records and achievements back when he was still playing. Of course we would not miss the huge collection of Manchester United’s trophies, starting from the Premier League, FA Cup, Carling Cup, to the European Champions Cup. There is also a special chart that showing Manchester United’s treble winner trophies in season of 1998 to 1999. After that, we proceeded to the stadium.

We were guided by a tour guide called Tony. The first area we visited is the front-row view of the whole stadium, going from one section to another. After that, we came across the seats of the home team and went to the inside of the stadium. The first room we visited is the dining room, where the players take a meal before or after the match. Right after the dining room, we arrived at the conference room. It is not that big, but it can accommodate around 50 reporters. Finally, we reached the changing room where Sir Alex Ferguson always gives instruction to the players before a game. The shirts on the wall show us where each player normally sits. At the end of the tour, we were guided to the field of the stadium. There is also a megastore within the grounds where we can browse and shop for souvenirs.

During our holiday in Manchester, we visited the Old Trafford stadium. It is an enormous stadium where famous players of Manchester United play. We saw Manchester United’s extensive trophy collection, learned about their legends that have graced the club’s history and experience the triumphs and tragedies of Manchester United FC. Visiting Old Trafford stadium in Manchester was an exceptional experience.
