5 Spring Break Destinations

For the last minute planners out there.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that as students of St Andrews, we all adore the Bubble. However, as Spring Break draws ever nearer, the undeniable itch to escape the increasing claustrophobia of this small town grows ever stronger. The Stand has compiled a list of things you can do over Spring Break, which will get you some freedom without breaking the bank.

European City Break

Spring Break is a great opportunity to get away to Europe, particularly for international students who want to make the most of their proximity to some of the world’s greatest cultural capitals. As of the time of writing, return flights from Edinburgh to Copenhagen over the break are available for as little as £49, or you can get to Amsterdam and back for £79. This is a great way to see a little bit of Europe, and is definitely doable on a budget.

London

If you’re planning on staying a little closer to home, Ryanair flies from Edinburgh to London, with tickets costing £15(!) making it the perfect destination for your spring break getaway. From London you can easily access pretty much everywhere interesting in England, so use this as your excuse to visit Oxford, Bath, and Brighton while you’re at it.

Edinburgh and Glasgow

These two historically beautiful and important cities can be easily accessed by train or coach from St Andrews, and have plenty to offer. Both cities thrive with various cultural attractions, whilst Glasgow reportedly has the best shopping in the UK after London. This is a great option if you’re short on time and want to get out for just a day or two.

Dundee

Whilst students of St Andrews do everything they can to assert dominance over those studying at Dundee, most of us haven’t actually properly visited our neighbouring city. Based on my own experience, it’s really not as bad as we make it out to be. The city centre offers fairly decent shopping opportunities, and there’s a few interesting museums, making it a refreshing change from the Bubble. It’s also relatively easy to access the Dundee Ice Centre, and Camperdown Wildlife Centre from the city centre, which both make for a more interesting afternoon out.

Staying in St Andrews

For those of you dead set on staying faithful to our beloved Bubble, take a look at this article about interesting things to do in and around St Andrews (even if you don’t have a date).

  12. One thing I would really like to say is that car insurance canceling is a dreaded experience so if you’re doing the proper things being a driver you won’t get one. Many people do obtain the notice that they have been officially dropped by their particular insurance company and many have to scramble to get supplemental insurance after having a cancellation. Low cost auto insurance rates usually are hard to get after having a cancellation. Knowing the main reasons concerning the auto insurance cancellations can help car owners prevent sacrificing one of the most important privileges available. Thanks for the tips shared through your blog.

  13. Thanks for expressing your ideas. I might also like to mention that video games have been actually evolving. Modern tools and innovative developments have served create sensible and interactive games. These types of entertainment games were not that sensible when the concept was first being used. Just like other areas of technological innovation, video games also have had to develop by way of many many years. This is testimony to the fast continuing development of video games.

  14. Thanks for the different tips provided on this web site. I have observed that many insurance agencies offer shoppers generous deals if they choose to insure multiple cars with them. A significant quantity of households have several cars these days, particularly people with mature teenage young children still living at home, as well as the savings in policies can certainly soon begin. So it makes sense to look for a bargain.

  15. One other issue is when you are in a problem where you don’t have a co-signer then you may genuinely wish to try to make use of all of your financing options. You will discover many grants and other free college funding that will ensure that you get money that can help with college expenses. Many thanks for the post.

  16. Hi would you mind letting me know which web host you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a honest price? Kudos, I appreciate it!
