Blog of the Week is back with a bang and boy hav

first_imgBlog of the Week is back with a bang, and boy, have we got some bang for your buck this week (what do you mean, it’s free?) with the wonderful guide to the great in Britain, I don’t want to go there! ‘Rapidly running out of things to do by late morning, we decided to investigate the car plant’IDWTGT, as we’ll take the liberty of abbreviating it to, is the work of Cathy and Sally, two 50-something friends who met at school. Since 2001 they have been visiting places in the UK that they’ve ‘never been to before, and never wanted to go to, with a view to challenging – or confirming’ – their ‘preconceptions and prejudices’. Their first trip was to Coventry, which set the tone for many more trips to unheralded and downright unglamorous destinations that have slipped under the tourist radar, until now.In the year of the Olympics, of the Jubilee, when we’re all supposed to be taking staycations, IDWTGT is an appropriate celebration of much that is, unintentionally, great in Britain. Although it’s unlikely that VisitBritain will be promoting the likes of Luton, Middlesbrough and Hebden Bridge, Cathy and Sally do a good job for them.‘We imagined that Peacocks and Shoezone would be the highlights of High Street fashion, Greggs the most upmarket food outlet. If there was a park it would be empty. If there was a nightclub it would be scary. Saturday night would be alright for fighting and nothing would be open on a Sunday. Initial impressions seemed to confirm this.’It’s an amusing, entertaining blog. The humour is understated, the tome never nasty. It would be easy to absolutely annihilate Aldershot, for example, but there is affection too. The blog is pretty simple in terms of function and features, but does its job – a platform for the prose, and the design suits it well.So why, if they don’t want to go there, do they go there? “It’s a reasonable question. Most of our friends and family don’t get it at all’ they say, but lovers of the off-beat, the ‘unexpected, the distinctive, the disturbing things about places’ will understand. Travel and tourism is not just about visiting the must-see attractions, lying on a beach or eating in the finest restaurants. And while backpackers, travel bloggers and Lonely Planet have become parodies of themselves, Cathy and Sally channel the spirit of adventure on our very doorsteps. For every Chang Mai, there’s a Crouch End, every Santiago a Solihull. It’s just that you might not want to go there.10ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map RelatedFlight Geek of the Week – Ewan GrayIntroducing the flight search geeks that make Skyscanner workLee Abbamonte: record-breaking travellerWe talk travel with Lee Abbamonte, ‘the youngest American to visit every country in the world’.Flight Geek of the Week: Benjamín Pérez UleciaFlight Geek of the Week: Benjamín Pérez Ulecialast_img read more
