As an island girl who was raised on a farm and rarely visited anywhere larger than Aberdeen as a child, I'm not much of a city person. Things have clearly changed, given that I've lived in two cities in the past year, but still - give me a mountain or island any day, or even… Continue reading My Top 10 Favourite Cities
There's nothing quite like ending a trip on a bang, so when I realised our cheapest way home from Vancouver was via the biggest hell hole in the world*, I started looking into other options. And being me, I came up with a crazy idea, which somehow worked out perfectly: a day in New York… Continue reading A Layover In New York City
It has to be said that Seattle isn't my favourite city - which is why it may come as a surprise that I am writing a THIRD blog post about it (though with a title like that, I'm sure you can understand why).

Monument Valley had marked the end of our semi-organised schedule that we'd mostly kept to on the road trip so far, and now… Continue reading Arches National Park and a Surprising Stop In Moab
It's been a while since I've done a photo post - but Utah is so full of photogenic spots that this one was always on the cards. Plus there are plenty of places we saw or passed that haven't made it into other blog posts. Utah is one of my favourite US states. Sometimes I… Continue reading Photo Friday: The Colours Of Utah
