Ever dreamed of just giving it all up and going on the road with your… err… band…? Well maybe you can. You can now hire a 40-foot American-style RV – just like you see the racing drivers and rock stars using (I believe they refer to them as their ‘trailers’) – treating yourself to what has to be the most luxurious camping experience money can buy!

UK company Hire Winnebago, based just off the A14 near Kettering in Northants, rents out American RVs to the good and the great – from wanton travelers to A-list festival goers, British Grand Prix teams and even film and TV crews. At the top of their range is a Fleetwood Revolution LE – a three double-bed monster with leather furniture, tiled floors, state-of-the-art audio visual system and full-size shower room.

Min Kyu Choi has come up with a real corker of an idea. A plug that folds flat creating that little bit extra space in your luggage. It should also prevent your laptop being scratched or damaged in transit as this was Min Kyu Choi’s inspiration for the award winning creation.

In this film the Min Kyu Choi explains the design process in elegant and modest pros.

If you are looking to book a holiday in an unspoilt location somewhere in Europe then you may like to visit the VintageHolidays blog first. We recently discovered this little gem, which shares unbiased information about major and minor European festivals, interesting and culturally rich things to see around some of ancient Europe as well as provides an interesting source of information about some rather impressive private villas you can hire.

We believe it’s one of the best European travel blogs around and has been posting for well over 2 years. A fantastic resource!

If you are a fan of TVs Most Haunted then this will definitely be for you. Haunting Breaks are in effect an events company wanting to prove beyond reasonable doubt that “there exists more between heaven and earth, than is dreamt of in one single philosophy”.

Haunting Breaks are setting about this task by running a series of weekends away in some of Britain’s most haunted properties.

The weekends make a great break from the norm and will almost click you out of work mode when you join the table for a séance. You’ll enjoy dinner, bed and breakfast in style and stay in some of the most notoriously haunted properties in the UK.

Here are just 2 of our favourites:

Bolebroke Castle - Henry VIII’s hunting lodge set in 30 acres of private Sussex parkland, just 5 miles from Hever Castle, the birth place of Anne Boleyne.

This is an historic building NOT a hotel. The accomodation is very basic so if you are looking for a break based on a 3 or 4 star rating then we suggest you look elsewhere. Imagine stepping back in time to the Tudor period! Imagine dining in Henry VIII great hall! Imagine having exclusive access to roam this incredible historic building with just our other guests and of course the ghosts for company? Spend the night in the Henry VIII bedchamber IF YOU DARE!

Many strange experiences have been reported over the years. Unexplained tappings, cries of laughter and anguish. The ghostly apparition of a woman in nun’s clothing allegedly searching for her forbidden lover who met his death on the Elizabethan staircase. The figure of a headless woman seen walking through the Great Hall! Is this the ghost of Anne Boleyne who frequented the castle whilst courting Henry VIII?
