Camping On A Budget

Camping is synonymous with most as a ‘budget holiday’, and it certainly makes a great alternative trip if you’re after a change. After giving it a go this year on our own (read: with our own transport and kit etc) I wanted to see how ‘budget’ it really could be. So, below is a little…

Where to Find the New York Movie Spots

I don’t know about you but I absolutely love a rom-com, and more specifically the ridiculous kind set in the Big Apple. There is always, inevitably, a panning shot of New York city, preferably from many angles, to very good and empowering pop music (Trainwreck I’m looking at you). Anyway, I digress, but isn’t there…

5 Travel Apps That Are Worth The Phone Storage

I’m luckily enough to travel quite a bit throughout the year, and I’ll be honest, I wouldn’t be able to do any of it if I wasn’t so reliant on my phone. Not just for podcasts – the amount of books I’ve read this year is shameful – but the amount of podcasts I’ve listened…

Bridal Shopping in New York

This is certainly a topic I never thought I’d be writing about, but on my recent trip to New York I indulged my mum and booked in a few appointments to try on wedding dresses. I’m not really writing too much #weddingcontent on here, but as it was a completely different experience to what I’ve…

Hamilton Island

Just like you might sit back in England and watch swallows fly around in the evening, at Hamilton island you have the cockatoos, and the bats. So many bats! I can’t believe I’ve come to my last Australia post! No later than 3 months after I visited. In the entirety of our 3 week trip,…

Brisbane Round Two

What do you do when you’re returning to Brisbane with still not a clue what to do? Well, you do it all again.. I have to admit when I returned to Brisbane this time round I was battling some sort of sleep deprivation/jet lag thing, as I really wasn’t feeling 100% myself. It’s such a…

Where To Eat In Chicago

It’s safe to say that no holiday has ever left me feeling so full and satisfied. The food options around Chicago outnumber any possible opportunity to eat, and looking back at our trip we only scratched the surface of what was there. During our visit we enjoyed several meals at the 5 venues below, and…

10 Ways to Experience Chicago

To my shame I went into Chicago with low expectations, and I’m incredibly happy to report it went above and beyond anything I could’ve expected. My main worry being that there wouldn’t be enough to do, but boy was I wrong. As this post will detail, there is plenty to do in the Windy city. If you’re…

Byron Bay

What can I tell you about Byron Bay? It’s exactly how it looks since last time I came here two years ago, but I’m lucky that this time we’ve had more time to stay here and explore further. As I write this – on our sheltered balcony with an Australian coffee next to me –…

The Bondi Icebergs

Confession time: I am a giant scaredy cat. So booking a three week trip to Australia – where most of the animals seem to be out to get you – was a risky holiday for me already. Add to that that I’m not the most confident swimmer, and well, you can start to wonder why…
