What You Should Do If Your Flight Is Delayed

Recently, I’ve seemed to have the worst luck with trains and planes. I think we’ve all been experiencing the worst services when it comes to trains in the past month – Especially if you’re up north! In the last month or so, I’ve experienced four cancelled trains and every single other one has been considerably delayed! My luck hasn’t been brilliant when it comes to planes either! Back in December, I experienced a four and a half hour delay coming back from Orlando to Manchester. I wasn’t really clued up with what to do if you’re plane is considerably delayed…

It’s fair to say that many of the physical changes would make it hard to recognise your own city even if you had been on a hiatus for the past 20 years.  With a nostalgic nod to the bustling UK cities of yesteryear,…

Museum of Ice Cream, Alcatraz & Walt Disney Museum #14

After spending a week in Los Angeles, it was time to fly up to San Francisco. The flight is only about an hour long and you can usually get a good deal where it only costs around $30.

For the first couple of days in San Francisco, I was staying in the Hotel Zeppelin in the Downtown Theatre District not too far from Union Square. The hotel was incredible and had the most amazing design. After an early start, I actually ended up spending most…

A Luxury Woodland Stay at The North Star Club, Sancton

North Star Club has been on my radar for quite a while. It’s somewhere that seemed to be everywhere on social media and it looked simply magical. I was beyond excited to be staying there a couple of weeks ago on a cosy weekend retreat with my boyfriend. North Star Club is nestled in the woodlands beside the very small village of Sancton in North Yorkshire and actually is only about an hour away from where I live. Before our arrival, I was e-mailed a little guide on what to expect from our luxury glamping experience. I’ve never really stayed…
