I’m a huge fan of travel themed jewellery, especially the friendship style bracelets. Because I’m very active, I find that typical chain jewellery just doesn’t last, the chain breaks and then I end up losing them. I recently walked by an expensive jewellery shop in Greece and the store assistant was like “you need jewellery to remember your trip!” And I was like errrr got anything made out of string?!? So when I was recently contacted by ‘Life Less Ordinary’ to advertise their coordinates bracelet, I jumped at the chance!
As some of you may know, I’m a huge fan of carry on travel and try to do so as much as possible. Not only does it save money as many airlines charge you for checked luggage now, but it also saves time as you then don’t have to wait at the baggage carousel or worry about bags being transferred during connecting flights! I was recently contacted by Chester Travel to try out their new Minima carry on suitcase and here’s what I think!
When it comes to travel packing lists and ‘must have travel gadgets’, I can’t believe I’ve always overlooked the item I’d feel most naked without and there’s a good reason for it…literally because I NEVER take it off. Ever. It’s like a permanent part of me! I am a huge fan of Baby G (G Shock) watches by Casio. In my opinion they are the best waterproof dual timezone watch out there and an important part of my travel routines!
As an expat living overseas, sometimes all I want more than anything is British comfort food, the food from home that I love and miss! One thing I used to have regularly for dinner was ‘Pukka Pies’ (you can buy them in some Fish and Chip shops too!). Yes America have ‘pot pies’, maybe I’m buying the wrong ones because they are just nasty! Recently, Pouch Pies reached out to me about their meat pie online delivery service! They have flavours of pies inspired from all around the world, BUT most importantly they sell traditional British pies! I love discovering places to get British food in America!
I don’t remember the last time I was so excited about buying something that wasn’t a plane ticket! I’ve wanted a drone for a while and after deciding against buying one of the cheap pocket drones, I opted for the DJI Spark…which is still tiny…but amazing. I was worried that as a newbie pilot I would be awful at flying it but it was fairly easy to pick up!
I can’t believe it’s the end of May already! Here I’ll be looking back on what I’ve been up to this month, the places I’ve been, the highs and lows, life as a Brit in the States and other random things I’m finding interesting this month!
As a part time traveller, I’m always on the look out for a way to satisfy my love of travel without actually being on the road. ‘Route 66 Splendor’ is an adult colouring book created by Jo Ann Kargus, an illustrator from St Louis, Missouri (yay Midwest!) and I can tell you now, it’ll provide hours of entertainment!
