Well, the Shetland islands want to be part of the UK and have said if Scotland became Independant, The Shetland islands would announce Independance and considering the Oil goes to the Shetland Islands, the Shetland isles would be the ones who get the oil. One thing is for sure though, we would have a Conservative Government for the rest of our lives. Nooooooooo!
Lonely Planet is pretty good. There is also a great deal of information about London on They also publish a book guide
With London changing so rapidly, it's worth making sure that you buy not only a well written guide but also one that's been newly published / updated. Lonely Planet's London guidebook is one of several I have for friends who come to stay and it's usually the one which comes up with the best information about interesting districts and individual places. But it is quite a heavy book to carry, so I've got an order in for the new edition of the pocket guide which is coming out this week: http://shop.lonelyplanet.com/england/poc... The latest version of the full-sized edition was published in February, so if you don't mind the extra weight, it's a good option: http://shop.lonelyplanet.com/england/lon... The other London guide my visiting friends always find really good is Time Out's London guide. They produce several - plus the iconic weekly magazine which is also worth buying while you're here for last-minute information on events. Time Out is one of the official sponsors of the London 2012 Oympics, so the 2012 London guide also includes information about the games and the huge programme of festivities surrounding them. There'll be lots going on while you'll be here, so I'd recommend that one as well. http://shop.timeout.com/london-guides/lo... Time Out also produces London visitor apps. These aren't free of course, but they are reliable in terms both of their information and also the security of your smartphone. http://
What's the best Countries/Cities to visit? I'm nearly 24 and i'm single and I like meeting new people and really want to visit lots of different places. Not even to party like a normal 24yr old. Just to visit cool attractions an stuff So whats some good places to visit, City breaks would be a quick way to explore. I've been Toronto, Canada...
You could name them after one of the Shetland Islands. The main ones are called "yell" "unst" "fetlar" "papa" "whalsay" "mousa" "fair isle" and "mainland". ( I wouldnt recommend mainland) Lerwick is the main town in the Shetlands and could be a good dog name. If you wanted something very shetlandic you could go for "Jarl" after the viking warriors who ruled Shetland or "Helly" after "up helly ah" the big shetlandic fire festival.
We would love to go to the Shetland Islands but can not afford the price. Could anyone tell me where I would find a lot of ponies in? Scotland

'Edmonton like a local': Scathing Lonely Planet review inspires insider's guide to city When Vikki Wiercinski heard Edmonton described as a "frigidly cold" government town in a less-than flattering Lonely Planet review, she decided to stick up for her city with a new guidebook. The graphic designer has produced and printed a crowd-sourced insider's guide of the city called Edmonton, It's Fine here! 45 Ways to Edmonton Like a Local. Wiercinski said the guide is a cheeky, yet practical reaction to a snarky Lonely Planet review which sparked outrage in the city when it was published in April.

Lonely Planet: Ireland is ultimate ‘storybook location’ Ireland has been named as one of the world’s ultimate storybook locations by the Lonely Planet. It was once known as the Land of Saints and Scholars so it’s not surprising it made it into a list of top literary locations by the travel bible. It was named as one of the top 10 places that bring children’s literature to life, alongside Wales which is known as the birthplace of King Arthur, and the Caribbean as the golden-sanded setting for Treasure Island. The Lonely Planet gives Ireland the nod as a literary treasure trove f

Why is the Lonely Planet Mongolian phrasebook so small? Lonely Planet's Mongolian Phrasebook & Dictionary has only 212 pages, while Japanese has 272 pages, and Chinese has 256 pages. Also, the Mongolian phrasebook does not have some sections that other phrasebooks have. (In fairness, the phrasebook also has some sections that are specifically about Mongolian topics)Is this because Mongolian phrasebooks are less commonly purchased than other languages, and they deal with the reduced revenue by creating less content?Am I likely to encounter this with other Lonely Planet phrasebooks about less popular languages, and/or with other publishers' phrasebooks about Mongolian?
