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!
Being a Brit in the USA, there’s nothing I enjoy more than receiving a little box of English treats from home! The Little Care Package is a brand new subscription box company aimed at British expats living in America and Canada. It was created by a Brit living in Canada that was, to be honest, disgusted at the price of buying British items overseas…$8 for an English magazine?!

Hope everyone’s New Year has started off well! I can’t believe it’s the end of January 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!
In all honesty, I don’t think I could have done Route 66 without this guide book. It’s AMAZING. Seriously. Everyone should go out and buy it if you’re planning on taking the trip. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you…
What on earth does looking after a hedgehog have to do with a travel and lifestyle blog?! Well, when it comes to wild animals, the UK doesn’t really have many when you compare it to places like the USA, BUT the UK do have hedgehogs! Here in the USA, I have a hedgehog as a pet! OK so it’s not a British hedgehog but because they aren’t native to the USA, it’s classed as an exotic animal!
My favourite type of book to read are ones that are travel inspired. They have the power to make me feel like I’m somewhere else, even if I’m just at home sitting on the sofa! In 2016 I read over 30 books! When I moved to America, I even signed up for a library card! There was a huge library in my hometown in England but for some reason I never really used it once I was an adult, I always just bought paperbacks or downloaded Kindle books! Here are some of my favourite books, some have even inspired me to travel because of reading them!
