72 hours in Bournemouth

72 hours in Bournemouth

Peering out the little porthole window all I can see are bushes, trees and brown earth hurtling past as the crew take their seats in preparation of hitting the tarmac. With no such surface in sight, the worry begins to rise as I can feel the speed increase, the wings wobble and the wheels straining [...]

Some R&R in Richmond, Virginia

Some R&R in Richmond, Virginia

For the final leg of our journey, we packed up our suitcases and our Vegas hangovers and headed to the airport. For the last destination we were done with buses as we were headed east-side and although we prided ourselves on being troopers, busing it from coast to coast was a bit too ambitious. Two [...]

Lost in Las Vegas

Lost in Las Vegas

Before our trip, I must admit Vegas wasn't somewhere I'd ever had a burning desire to visit. It looked cool and all but I didn't get the hype and never really planned to investigate what it was all about. However after having spent three days strolling the length of the strip, those feelings have changed [...]

Sun-downers in San Diego

Sun-downers in San Diego

San Diego was a spontaneous move for us. We'd planned as far as L.A., Vegas and Virginia but struggled to know what to place in the middle. We'd hit week two of travelling and the long hours on buses and constant racing around new cities was slowly taking it out of us. San Diego seemed [...]

L.A. living – part two

L.A. living – part two

Two out of four days down in the city of angels and we still hadn't gotten over the excitement of walking the same streets of the rich and famous. Day three was a pretty chill one as the manic nature of travelling had begun catching up on us. Used to packing up after two days, [...]

L.A. living – part one

L.A. living – part one

Our stay in Los Angeles started off in a way I will never forget. This had been the destination we had been most looking forward to. Benj being a musician and myself a journalist, we ย couldn't wait to visit the glitz and glam of showbiz central and right from the get-go we were confronted with [...]

3 days pottering in Portland

3 days pottering in Portland

Next stop on our American adventure was the weird and wonderful Portland. Following on from our stay in Seattle, we were a little bit more acclimatised to the different culture in America so were more able to relax as we toured the city. Nestled in the forests of Oregon, Portland is kind of an undiscovered [...]

2 Sleepless Nights in Seattle

2 Sleepless Nights in Seattle

I've never been a fan of cold weather, probably not unlike most people. That's why this autumn, we decided to leave cold Canada behind and head across the border in an attempt to chase that West Coast sunshine. Buses booked, accommodation sorted for the moment and bags overflowing, our first stop was Seattle. Before visiting [...]

We moved to Vancouver, BC!

We moved to Vancouver, BC!

Welcome back to my apologetically inconsistent blogging and another post! I intended to write this one a little over two weeks ago but that thing called 'life' got majorly in the way and sitting down to write was unfortunately low down on the list of priorities as I attempted to set up shop in Canada. [...]

72 hours in Brussels

72 hours in Brussels

A fan of cute cobbled streets as far as the eye can see?Looking for cafes that will make the Instagram feed green with jealousy? A serious chocoholic? Then Brussels, Belgium is screaming your name. Having not heard too much about the French speaking city before visiting, I was pleasantly surprised with ย what I came across. [...]
