INVESTING IN A SPORTS CAR? HERE’S EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

Top Tips to Consider When Buying A Sports Car And Can You Realistically Afford It?

By Posted on 0 Comments Location: 3min read42 views

If you have always wanted to own a sports car then you may have been waiting for the right time to buy one. If that time has come around then you will need to know the essentials about buying and owning a sports car. They need a lot of looking after, special due to the price that people usually pay for them. If you are going to be using your new car every day as opposed to a weekend car then you will need to give it lots of TLC.

Investing In A Sports Car

 

Know Your Budget

When it comes to buying any car, you need to know your budget. This doesn’t differ for a sports car, you will need to work it out regardless. Ideally, you should have enough money to buy your new car without it leaving you out of pocket. Figure out how much you have left at the end of each month and save up for the car of your dreams.

Where To Buy It From

You have three options when it comes to buying your new sports car. You can purchase it from the main dealership, used car dealers, or a private seller. Be aware, buying from a private seller means you don’t have any rights to return it or get your money back if it all goes wrong. Used car dealers are generally cheaper as they have been previously owned by other people. If you are not fussed about having a brand-new car then this is a wonderful way to save a bit of money.

Find A Garage

Now you own your beautiful sports car you will need to find a garage that will look after it if anything needs repairing or looking into. A lot of garages won’t touch sports cars as you need to have experience and knowledge of these types of cars. There are specialist garages for people who own luxury sports cars. A quick internet search will give you your best options, make sure you research before handing your beloved wheels over to them.

Store It Correctly

When you own a sports car you will want to look after it properly. This means storing it correctly and keeping it in good condition. When you are not using your car, think about where you will be storing it. If you keep it parked on the street outside your home, be aware that your insurance premiums will be higher. If you store it in a private garage at your home then this is better all around.

Get It Insured

Speaking of insurance, you will need to purchase this in order to drive your new car around. Check out the best rates using comparison sites or go by recommendations from friends or family members. If you have another car then your current insurance provider may offer a multi-car discount.

 

We hope you found this article helpful and that it gave you lots of insight into owning a sports car. This car will be the best thing you have ever owned and you will enjoy feeling the wind through your car cruising down the motorway. Make sure you look after your precious sports car and it will bring you many happy years behind the wheel.

The Best Ways to Explore A New DestinationImage Credit – CCO License

Speak To The Locals

This is always going to be one of the best things you can do if you want to explore somewhere in the best way possible. Just spending a little time speaking to the locals is going to mean that you pick up some great ideas about what you can do in that place and which corners you might want to explore. It’s really quite amazing how well this can work, so it’s something you should certainly think about at least. It might mean that you see a lot more in no time at all, which is always good.

Drive

Of course, a really good way to get around pretty much anywhere is to drive a car. You may or may not want to do this in some places, but it’s always worth thinking about if you are keen to see some of the hidden gems that a lot of destinations have to offer. There are a few essential ways you might want to do this. You might, for instance, decide that you want to buy a car from some local car dealerships, or you might decide to simply hire one. And depending on how far you are going from home, you might even be able to take your existing car.

Research The Place

It’s always a good idea to research a place before you go, as thoroughly as you possibly can, because that way you are going to have a much better sense of what it’s all about. These days it is easier than ever to research somewhere, as it’s mostly just a matter of going online and seeing what people are saying about it. You can find blogs, websites and online magazines which are all dedicated to this, so that is something that you should certainly think about when you are next due to travel.

Get Lost

Finally, there is something to be said for simply going out there and allowing your feet to take you around. You might find that you end up discovering some places you never thought you would discover, and that is something that you are definitely going to want to think about. So make sure that you allow yourself plenty of time to do this, should that be the kind of thing you enjoy doing. For many people, it’s the best way to explore any destination they happen to be in.

Take the Scenic Route on a Seaplane with Trans Maldavian Airways


Upon arrival to the Maldives we took a pre-booked chartered seaplane with Trans Maldavian Airways to the Adaaran Select Resorts on Meedhuparu Island in the Maldives the only way to travel in style for an unforgettable experience you’ll never forget.

Today is brought to you by the letter M. M stands for Maruhabaa a Maldivian greeting for you’re welcome!. Male the main Island where Velana International Airport is situated south of the atolls can be reached by a 45 minute seaplane from north atoll Meedhuparu the amazing resort we stayed at for 5 nights and finally the word Maldives. Make your own Mark on the world map and manifest your own Maldivian Memories.

Missing the summer sun lately? it’s time to take the plunge and book a trip to the World’s Leading Holiday Destination, the Maldives. Relax on pristine white sand dunes to exploring coral reefs and their marine wildlife or perhaps you’d like to experience the excitement of a jet ski ride off shore on an island tour excursion trail to spot some dolphins in the ocean. 

Travelling to the Maldives couldn’t be easier as most major Airlines fly from London Heathrow or Gatwick with a stopover in the Middle East such as Gulf Air whom I choose to partner with during this press trip kindly sponsored my Falcon Gold Airport Lounge access both ways at Heathrow and Bahrain. Use of Gulf Air Airport Lounge is only exclusively available to Business Class and 1st Class passengers even more reason to book with them and collect air-miles points, including priority boarding which makes skipping the security line a breeze just one of the perks of being a business class ticket holder.

Some islands however can be reached by speedboat compared to those other islands located further afield which can only be reached by Seaplane or a domestic flight transfer. Foreign currency in the Maldives that’s widely accepted in the Resorts are US Dollars which is used mostly by foreign tourist on vacation here just to give you a heads up.

On my recent trip to the Maldives I had a 5 hour stopover in Bahrain with an enjoyable luxury experience inside the Falcon Gold Airport Lounge which made travelling long haul a lot easier during my itinerary. Inside the lounge itself it was contemporary, clean and relaxing atmosphere including all the essential amenities from smart phone charge points, golf simulation, a pool table, cocktail bar to the warm welcome from attentive staff members. Shower facilities were also available on site for ease of convenience when transiting through the airport to freshen up before your next flight.

There’s even a place to get some rest in the sleep pod area which includes a warm blanket and this includes a wake up call from staff to ensure you board your flight on time. Before getting some rest there are plenty of food and beverage options with an array of sumptuous cuisines on offer served in the Gulf Air main restaurant from light snacks to main meals. The kitchen can even make you a fresh pizza from the oven on request and the best part was they had a popcorn machine and gelato ice-cream which was delightful if you fancied a sweet tooth for desert after dinner.

Adaaran Select Meedhuparu resort offers visitors the chance to enjoy a romantic floating breakfast with fresh baked pastries, fruit, a selection of cold cuts to cheese platters served with fresh juices and to top it all sparkling wine!.

I had my morning breakfast in a quiet spot of the Prestige Water Villas Infinity pool with a view overlooking our private beach and ocean, so it felt very private. This is ideal, especially if you’re on a honeymoon or enjoying a romantic getaway for two.

For content creators Meedhuparu Island is such a stunning location for Travel and luxury lifestyle destination photography. It makes it so much easier to create stunning imagery to catch the eye of even the discerning travellers looking for wanderlust inspiration. You can capture the most exquisite moments, ranging from tranquil evening sunset horizons with a whole array of colours in the sky, to vibrant blues in hues of the serene crystal-clear waters and skyline. Also, the subtle shots using foliage to provide mystery and intriguing shadows during afternoon strolls along the beach.

Adaaran Select Meedhuparu Resort all-inclusive Prestige Water Villa’s provides excellent luxury serviced accommodation equip with your very own personal Butler during the duration of your stay who drives you around the island in a golf buggy. Just one the delightful perks being a VIP guest which makes life that little bit easier and you get to take in some sightseeing along the way. Consider walking on foot too around the island is also an option. Expect a friendly warm welcome in a tranquil setting on the ocean, glorious weather, island wildlife, not to mention the sumptuous cuisine and sunset views that take your breath away.

Meedhuparu is set in a stunning secluded location for privacy and the weather is divine, exactly what you dream of on a cold wet windy day back in the UK. The Adaaran select resort has a water sports and dive centre with all sorts of activities available from stand-up paddle boarding, to see through canoes, surfing, snorkelling, scuba diving, jet skiing, banana boat ride to fun tube when you sit on an inflatable and get pulled along by a jet ski. 

Theres even a catamaran for keen sailing enthusiast depending on the weather. I myself attempted the jetski and funtube where I used three cameras to capture the action: one camera captured the main action and two GoPro cameras in waterproof cases on my wrist and chest harness captured all my adventure on the water.

It’s been a fantastic adventure. I’ve learnt so much. The Maldivian people are lovely, very friendly, accommodating and welcoming. The resort is fabulous: lots of different accommodation to suit all preferences, lovely restaurants from pan-Asian fusion to Mediterranean, and bars to cater to all taste, whether that be a quiet drink in beachside bar or in a livelier bar in the bustle of things at a weekly beach party. You can order meals to your room, have a romantic sand bench dinner on the beach during the sunset and dine with elegance while you gaze under the stars.

A range of water sports is available at the resort such as snorkelling or sea bob snorkelling where you take an underwater mini submarine that helps you navigate more easily whilst swimming.

Apart from catering to thrill adventure seekers that love jet skiing, fun tubing, banana boat rides, or wind surfing you can try out various excursions and key attractions such as the evening sunset boat ride and fishing trips. What more could you want from a luxury holiday destination in the Indian Ocean?

DISTINCT NON ALCOHOLIC DRINKS IDEAL FOR DRY JANUARY 2022

CELEBRATE SCOTTISH HERITAGE WITH TALONMORE NATURAL NON-ALCOHOLIC SPIRITS WITHOUT LIMITATIONS

best non alcoholic spirits 2022

Let your tastebuds explore Scotland’s heritage where Talonmore’s birthplace of Cramond has a longstanding history with evidence of Mesolithic, Bronze age, and Roman settlements.

best non alcoholic spirits 2022

BREWED INSTEAD OF DISTILLED
Unlike other non alcoholic spirits, Talonmore is brewed instead of distilled – ensuring Talonmore is a great tasting drink and 0% ABV.

“Is your spirit without limitations like Talonmore? Expect the fiery taste, like the pleasant burn of alcohol – but free of sacrifice”

Talonmore has been designed to replicate the experience of drinking a dark spirit such as whisky, rum or cognac but without the headaches. Creating non-alcoholic beverages from rooted and plant based ingredients to replicate spirit strength drinks with signature fiery flavour. No alcohol, no compromises.

Without the need of ethanol to carry the flavour or distillation to produce, Talonmore is complex, well balanced non-alcoholic spirit and full of flavour. It doesn’t bite but it’s still got a unique kick about it ready to start your weekend leaving you feeling liberated to tackle any adventure.

“0% ABV, 100% Unique. The dark spirit experience, with none of the morning after compromise”

best non alcoholic spirits 2022

Talonmore’s non-alcoholic spirit is all about getting reacquainted with the elements, created for adventurous drinkers and crafted from natural ingredients. Adopting the philosophy of natural elements ensures that flavour is always at the forefront of every sip, with superfoods such as ginger that have recognised health benefits and healing properties. This is complemented with hawthorn berry, cactus juice and assam tea for a unique and well balanced blend.

Whatever your view, the sun sets better with a non alcoholic drink and unrivalled taste. Be inspired by the versatility of Edinburgh’s historic charm, natural surroundings and unique festival spirit. They say a drink without equal is always worth a shot don’t you think. What’s fascinating about this beverage is that its a full bodied, unique blend of complex fiery flavours where plant based infusion and Scottish passion goes into every bottle of Talonmore.

best non alcoholic spirits 2022

Experience hearty hints of ginger with an impressive citrus punch, Talonmore Drinks makes for an ideal partner to ice and a slice of lime – a strong spirit but without the alcohol”

best non alcoholic spirits 2022

MADE IN SCOTLAND
It’s the first Scottish non-alcoholic spirit that’s brewed instead of being distilled and maximise flavour and mouthfeel. Experience taste that delivers in every drop. 

Fancy it as part of a Cocktail or Stand alone Drink

I discovered that Talonmore was created to perform equally well as part of a cocktail mixer or as a standalone drink. I quite like mine with a splash of cranberry juice for an energising and refreshing beverage. Personally, I think it’s best serve cold, over ice, with a twist of lime just perfect every time. A non-alcoholic drink isn’t half a drink – and there’s nothing missing from Talonmore’s naturally non-alcoholic spirit.

Best Served

I recommend serving Talonmore drinks over crushed ice with a sharp twist of lime that lives up to its name that alcohol free doesn’t have to mean soft at all. Although Talonmore is alcohol-free, but certainly not flavour free. Fiery, full-bodied, sometimes less really is more. Notably, you will discover on the rocks or not, the secret recipe is without equal sourced through a formula of rooted and plant based ingredients to ensure flavour is at the forefront. Keep your taste buds captive with a brewed, alcohol free jolt of Talonmore by making it into a long drink with your favourite mixer or just as it comes neat or with ice. Great news that some lockdown restrictions are easing and we can begin to socialise again. Take this opportunity to enjoy Talonmore outside with friends in the sunshine and make the most of it.

It’s good to know I have options to relax and recharge with Talonmore now that I’ve tried it’s all you could want in a non-alcoholic ginger infused spirit with all the thrill and flavour you’d expect to wind down and disconnect for the weekend. You will be astonished to find out it’s main ingredients is Ginger, but it’s what gives Talonmore its distinctive taste. Think of it as combining the strength of a spirit, but with none of the harsh after effects without sapping your reserves of strength.

Speaking of London Cocktail Week, we have almost officially reached cocktail season and I can’t get enough of Talonmore’s alcohol free take on a Espresso Martini. Success in versatility, Talonmore has been created to replicate the experience of drinking a dark spirit. However, this does not mean we cant explore other ways to enjoy Talonmore. You’ll love the Espresso Moretini, a twist on the traditional espresso martini combines a complex combination of fiery ginger and espresso coffee. This brings out the flavours of chai and chocolate orange, ideal for an afternoon pick-me-up.

Vinyl Flooring Perfect for the Party

If you like to entertain crowds at home or are the person to throw parties but fear the clean-up, there is an option that will greatly benefit you in choosing luxury vinyl flooring for your property.

Over the past two decades, interior designers and specialists recommend vinyl tiles and planks as a preferred option. The vinyl option has many benefits for those with limited time for cleaning and maintaining the home. This is much the same as with MDF skirting boards. They are so easy to clean and maintain – plus, they are built to last and are very cost effective too. 

Quick Install

In browsing the many brands within the vinyl flooring marketplace, you may be surprised to learn what makes it a high appeal to homeowners looking for a change.

Why it is a preferred option for the home is because of the relative ease to install yourself without the cost of a professional fitter. Whether it is an option of glue down or click together, vinyl tiles are a fun project to get into on your own time and, due to the ability to have pieces cut to size to fit – you are seldom left with frustration.

Vinyl is comfortable underfoot and has plenty of styles to choose from to match your influence.
