Our Newmarket Travel Predictions
It’s time to meet Group A. Do you feel that? That's the atmosphere. The undeniable breeze of competitive sport, anticipation, and a return to the stadium after a long time out of action.
You might be predicting that Switzerland will triumph over Wales in their first match of the tournament, or that Italy will blitz the competition and be a shoo-in to the finals. However, we’ve put our minds together for our own Alternative Euros - a friendly competition based on holiday potential only! So, let’s get started. Who do we have competing in Group A?
Ah, Italia. It’s hard to say no to a sojourn in the undulating, winery-filled hills of Tuscany, or a summer break at romantic Lake Como. We have customers who are so loyal to the Mediterranean nation that they return every year (minus 2020) without fault. We don’t blame them! Turkey is a destination favoured for similar reasons, with a world-famous cuisine - köfte anyone? - and a vast coastline of pristine Mediterranean beaches.
Then there’s idyllic, mountainous Switzerland. Popular among ski-fiends and hiking lovers, the alpine terrain is the perfect antidote to city life, offering a variety of active, adventurous breaks in nature. Closer to home is Wales, with its stunning mountain range in Snowdonia National Park, and a little gentler in the south, the Brecon Beacons, both of which offer similar opportunities to immerse yourself in a wild, rugged landscape.
So, our first group presents us with myriad opportunities and fierce competition. But for this round, we’re going to have to be tough. Only one nation can win.
Wales! The tiny yet mighty country has long remained an underrated travel destination. And perhaps it’s time for it to no longer remain a ‘hidden gem’. Many Brits are likely to have never wandered around the dramatic Pembrokeshire Coast, the peaks of Snowdonia National Park, or the unique island of Anglesey - and we blame certain rumours. Weather-related rumours. And we’re here to set the record straight.
Yes, it does rain in Wales. A lot. However, this rainfall shapes the landscape, making it vibrant in its green hues and in its springtime display of flowers. A trip to rural Wales is a breath of fresh air.
The Alternative Euros win for Wales might come as a delight to history buffs, who will know that the country packs in more than 600 castles. Some of which are UNESCO listed, including the striking Beaumaris Castle and Caernarfon Castle. Thanks to Edward I’s attempts to capture the country during the 13th and 14th centuries, Wales has more castles per square mile than any other country in the world.
Another reason to head to Wales is the proximity, making for a fuss-free holiday. It’s always a fantastic idea to explore what’s in your own backyard.
