"The books transported her into new worlds and introduced her to amazing people who lived exciting lives. She went on an olden-day sailing ships with Joseph Conrad. She went to Africa with Ernest Hemingway and to India with Rudyard Kipling. She travelled all over the world while sitting in her little room in an English village." Roald Dahl
I admit it, I was a bookworm when I was little and I still am today. I love reading and Roald Dahl is one of my favourite authors, no surprise in that. Matilda is one of the best books that I've read, but the others don't make any exception. It's always a pleasure to read Roald Dahl, his books are really one of a kind and a real inspiration. By reading his books you discover that there’s a whole new world out there where something new is possible and in which something magical can happen. The humour in his stories is simple, bright and spread between the lines so you’ll keep on laughing and laughing.
To celebrate the fact that Steven Spielberg's The BFG, is coming to Blu-Ray/DVD on November 21, Classic British Hotels are giving all you Roal Dahl fans and not only, a chance to win a luxury 2-night break at the Lake District in a magical hillside setting. Another lucky winner can receive a Samsung Galaxy E tablet.
The gorgeous Lake District region is among the top 3 destinations preferred by the British people. Lake District is a national park and it is England's most visually scenic region. This region is known for its association with early writings and poetry works. If you are a fan of outdoor activities, then Lake District is the place to be. Here you can practise mountain biking, water sports activities and hiking.
If you just want to sit back and relax, there are plenty of restaurants and pubs to choose from and enjoy a scrumdiddlyumptious dessert that even Dahl's characters would love.
But the gorgeous British scenery doesn't end here. There are plenty of other wonderful places that you can visit, like Suffolk with its breathtaking castles and medieval towns. Or maybe you'd like a stroll on the marvellous beaches of North Wales.
The list can go on forever because there's plenty of magical places to discover and remember that "those who don't believe in magic, will never find it." Roald Dahl
