10 Things I’ve Learned In 30 Years

Today, I leave my crazy 20's behind and embark on my next adventure of being 30. It sounded scary for a while, approaching the realm of true adulthood (sorry - what's that again?), but as it got closer, I knew that it would be like turning 18, or 21: it doesn't really feel any different.… Continue reading 10 Things I’ve Learned In 30 Years

My Plans For 2019: Home, Abroad & Turning 30

2019 is going to be full of big plans. We'll be moving to a new city, hopefully permanently, and getting new jobs, hopefully permanent, and settling into an actual routine that resembles something of a normality for the first time ever - hopefully permanently! While I think I lived my 20's right, it was far… Continue reading My Plans For 2019: Home, Abroad & Turning 30

2018: My Year In Review

I can never really decide if I want to do a year in review post until it gets to Christmas and I suddenly realise the year's almost over and start looking back at what I've done, what's happened and thinking about what's going to happen. 2018 has been a really strange year for me. I… Continue reading 2018: My Year In Review

Hotels, Slot Machines & Buffets: It Can Only Be Vegas

We arrived in Las Vegas in the dark. Which means all we could see were bright lights and huge hotels and flashing casinos, and you could almost forget that it was dark - but you definitely couldn't forget that you're in Vegas. Hotels are, of course, a quintessential part of any trip to Vegas, although… Continue reading Hotels, Slot Machines & Buffets: It Can Only Be Vegas

Finding The Weird, Wonderful & Awesome: Driving From LA To Las Vegas

I must admit I had never thought of the drive from Los Angeles to Las Vegas as particularly exciting. That's until I did a little research. On my TrekAmerica trip 10 years ago, we had driven the other way from Vegas to LA, and literally the only thing I remember about the drive was our… Continue reading Finding The Weird, Wonderful & Awesome: Driving From LA To Las Vegas

We Wish We Had More Time In San Diego

Of all the places that took us by surprise on our road trip, I think San Diego comes out on top. It wasn't even on our initial itinerary. I was pretty sure we weren't going to have time, especially when I found out that Yellowstone National Park closes on November 5th and we'd have to… Continue reading We Wish We Had More Time In San Diego

Ticking Off A Bucket List Road Trip: Driving Highway 1 & Big Sur

It seems like I've been ticking off a lot of bucket list items on this trip - and our drive down the Californian coast along the infamous Highway 1 was no exception. We hit really lucky with our road trip in California - we missed the recent fires by a couple of weeks, escaped the… Continue reading Ticking Off A Bucket List Road Trip: Driving Highway 1 & Big Sur

Photo Friday: The Pretty Buildings Of San Francisco

When I was going through my photos from San Francisco to try and choose which ones to use for my blog post about our time there, I really struggled to narrow it down to less than 50. The main reason for this is because San Francisco is full - FULL - of pretty buildings. Of… Continue reading Photo Friday: The Pretty Buildings Of San Francisco

Yosemite In A Day: All Of The Incredible Views In Yosemite National Park

Yosemite National Park has always been one of those places that I've really wanted to visit for as long as I can remember hearing of it, but in reality I actually had no idea what to expect because I'd never researched it. So while I knew we were going to be in for some beautiful… Continue reading Yosemite In A Day: All Of The Incredible Views In Yosemite National Park

The Perfect Day(ish) In San Francisco

San Francisco has been on my bucket list for longer than I've had a bucket list. Along with San Diego Zoo and probably New York (and Disney World), I remember being no older than six and telling myself that one day, I would go to those places. So as a seasoned world traveller wishing to… Continue reading The Perfect Day(ish) In San Francisco
