7 Things To Do In Llandudno, North Wales

Llandudno is a Victorian seaside town located in North Wales.  North Shore Beach is large with a wide pedestrianised promenade.  But there’s so much to do in Llandudno aside from the beach!  A major geographical feature is the Great Orme headland, a limestone land formation which was once mined for copper (you can still visit the disused mine/cave).  It’s also home to a herd of wild goats!

UK 14 Day Quarantine On Arrival: What It’s Like Travelling Into London Heathrow

On Monday 8th June 2020, the UK introduced a requirement for international travellers arriving into the UK to go into a 14 day quarantine. I travelled from Chicago USA landing in London Heathrow on Monday 15th June so therefore had to go through the motions. I have a feeling that it won’t be in place for long so I’ll be updating this post as and when things happen…if I wait 2 weeks until I publish, there’s a chance that it may not even be in place anymore!

10 Places To Add To Your Wisconsin Bucket List! USA

As someone that originates from the UK, when it comes to USA tourism, we are only really ‘shown’ places like Orlando/Disney, New York, Vegas, The Grand Canyon, LA…the Midwest is relatively unknown so to speak.  So when I moved to Iowa (20 minutes from the WI border), I was pleasantly surprised by Wisconsin as it was somewhere that had never really been on my radar before.  In this post I share with you some of my favourite Wisconsin attractions that should be on your Wisconsin bucket list! Wisconsin is pretty well known for its love affair with cheese (and cheese curds) but as someone that hates the stuff, unfortunately you won’t find any cheese related things in this round up!

British Restaurants In Central Iowa

Thanks to having to remove my Green Card conditions, I had a last minute 3hr trip to Des Moines.  I used it as the perfect excuse to visit some of the British places to eat in Ames and Des Moines to get a little bit of England in Iowa! Ames and Des Moines are approximately 35 minutes (30 miles) apart.

Wizard Quest: An Amazing Interactive Scavenger Hunt in the Wisconsin Dells!

So there’s an attraction in the Wisconsin Dells that I’m OBSESSED with, I think it’s brilliant.  Wizard Quest is a little like an escape room but it’s described as an interactive fantasy themed scavenger hunt.  It’s a completely unique attraction, the first of its kind in the world, and even visiting as adults without kids, we had so much fun and have been back a second time!

‘What To Wear In London To Look Like A Local’ & Why I Don’t Like These Posts.

I can’t tell you the amount of blog posts I’ve read about ‘what to wear in London to look like a local’, or ‘how to not dress like a tourist in London’, and I’m just like no no no no no.  Now little bit of a back story about me for those that don’t know me.  I was born and lived on the outskirts of London for 26 years.  I’d go into London to meet friends, see bands, go shopping…there were times when I’d only go there with a wallet and phone in my pocket and I very rarely did anything ‘touristy’ (until recently when I really started to appreciate London).
