Monkey Mia Dolphin Resort was one of those places that I first saw in an Australia guide book (…back before blogs really existed!) and was like yep, I have to go there! It is a… More
Now my regular readers will know that I’m not a fan of winter or being cold. So of course I’m more likely to be attracted to a ski resort when ironically there’s no snow. These little mountain towns do summer activities SO WELL. Just take Mayrhofen, Austria in Summer…AMAZING! Canada is no different, Whistler is full of awesome summer activities. I share some of my favourite activities in this things to do in Whistler summer guide!
Highway 20 is America’s longest highway, stretching from Boston, Massachusetts on the East Coast, all the way to Newport, Oregon on the West Coast! It’s 3365 miles (914 miles longer than Route 66) crossing 12 States: Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho and Oregon. For the most part, Highway 20 sticks to its original 1926 Route across America. When I moved to America, my house actually sits on the ‘Old Highway 20’ in Iowa! Ironically it’s somewhere that I’ve never really written about…until now! I spend almost everyday in the small towns along Highway 20 in East Iowa!
Every person and their dog has heard of London’s Sky Garden, located in the ‘Walkie Talkie’ building. It has exploded in popularity and has found itself as one of the top free things to do in London. However, move over Sky Garden, there’s a new kid on the block! Literally! Just 0.1 mile, a 2 minute walk away, is ‘The Garden at 120’, and for now, it’s still relatively unknown!
One of my first adventures overseas was when I worked on a summer camp back in 2008. I was a camp counsellor in up-state New York! Looking back at the amount of luggage I took for the 3 month trip is embarrassing, I didn’t really have a clue what to take and I’m proud to say my packing has definitely improved! There are some things that I’m glad I took so hopefully my camp counsellor packing list will give you an idea on where to start when preparing for summer camp!
Yay! You’ve made it to Key West, the Southernmost point in the USA! It’s a stones throw away from Cuba, there’s palm trees, cocktails everywhere, pies made from lime, all that’s left is to relax on the beach right?! In this post I share with you some of the Key West beaches that you’ll find on this island!
OK so this post isn’t exactly my regular style of travel content, but for me it’s a big focus of 2019. I need to find ways to deal with my stress and anxiety because it’s started to affect me in more ways than one, and as you can imagine, I’m NOT OK with that. So I decided to share some of my favourite free yoga and meditation resources for stress and anxiety, that I use and someone else may find beneficial!
Out of Route 66’s 2451 miles, in my opinion Arizona is home to the route’s best miles, not only does it have some unique attractions, it also has my favourite stretch of road! When you are doing a road trip such as Route 66, it’s not so much the ‘destinations’ which are the highlights, you have to embrace the whole road and the complete journey. The Sitgreaves Pass is definitely an awesome drive that’s not to be missed!
After being inspired by a post written by my friend Connie at the Midwest Wanderer,I decided to share some fun facts about Iowa that I’ve learnt from my travels and being an expat in this state! To be completely honest, as a Brit, Iowa isn’t really on the radar as somewhere that people have even heard of, let alone know anything about it! So here are some facts that you may not know about Iowa, because after all, a huge part of travel is the knowledge that you learn along the way!
