Seeing the countryside in a whole new light through binoculars
Lots of people come to the UK from all over the world to see its towns and stunning countryside, but because you live here all the time, you might take the sights and sounds around you for granted. This is only natural.
However, there’s a simple way to completely change your perspective. By going on trips with your binoculars you can see attractions that would otherwise completely escape your attention. Few things beat spending a day in the open air taking in the nature and scenery around you. If you’re lucky, you can even soak up some sun in the process.
Packing for staycations
It seems a rising number of Britons are making the choice to remain in Britain for their holidays. If you’re planning to do this, make sure you pack your binoculars. Whether you’re looking at the impressive array of bird life on offer, are surveying the sea from the shore or simply want to get a closer look at the general sights around you, you’ll find plenty to keep you amused.
Rather than just travelling through areas of beauty, you’re bound to make more of an effort to stop and appreciate them if you have binoculars with you. They can really help make nature come alive and give you a newfound appreciation for what the countryside has to offer.
You’re not alone
If you’re planning to pack your bird watching binoculars and set off on a break in the UK, you’re not alone. According to research conducted by Jungle Formula, one in five Britons has never been on a foreign holiday, the Daily Mail reports. Meanwhile, of those who have, half wish they had stayed in the UK.
A number of issues were found to put people off jetting off overseas. Language barriers and concerns about dealing with immigration were both cited as potential problems. Meanwhile, falling ill while abroad and experiencing lengthy travel times were also identified as difficulties.
Responding to the findings, a spokesman for Jungle Formula said: “There was a time when people felt they hadn’t been on holiday unless they had been on a plane. But it seems that more people than ever are content to stay in the UK.
“The recession has also had an effect, with people having to tighten their belts and stop splashing out on luxuries like a foreign holiday.”
