Yosemite National Park & My First NFL 49ers Game! #17

I should be ashamed that it’s 2019 and I’m STILL banging on about my big American trip. If you are new here, back in 2017, I spent a couple of months in the USA and Canada. However, I’m still working through my USA Diary Posts and haven’t posted since August. I’ve vowed to finish them as my 2019 goals and it’s a good job I have everything already written! We finished off at Part 16, which I was in San Francisco for Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Jumping back into the Diary posts, we are kicking off on Day Forty of the…

Thanksgiving & Black Friday in San Francisco #16

I’ve got another USA Travel Diary post for you already! After spending 4 days in San Francisco, on day Thirty-Five I flew out to Vancouver, Canada. I was so unbelievably excited about visiting Canada for the first time but unfortunately was met with horrendous weather! I’m not actually going to do my next instalment about my time in Vancouver as I covered most of it in my blog post back in January here. I think it would most likely be very repetitive of that post so give it read if you haven’t already! Fast forward a couple of days and…

San Francisco on a Sightseeing Bus with AttractionTix #15

I’m back with #15 of my USA Travel Diary Installment. I’m proper slacking with these post, aren’t I? We’re on to Day 33 in the USA and I’m still in San Francisco. There really is so much to see and do in San Francisco but it’s also a city that’s just lovely to chill out and wander about at your own pace. Whilst I was in San Francisco, I teamed up with AttractionTix who provided me with Sightseeing Bus Tickets so I could visit all the top sights in one day. The sightseeing bus started from near to Fisherman’s Wharf…

2 Days at Disneyland California & James Cordon #13

I’ve definitely been slacking on keeping up with my USA diaries post, haven’t I? There hasn’t been one in the past month, not to mention – this trip was six months ago! I’ll get there eventually! We’re now on Day 28 in America and this was a very exciting day. It was time to head over to Anaheim – I was going to Disneyland California! The original Disneyland and the only park that Walt Disney himself designed and oversaw the opening in person. I’d actually managed to pre-order an Uber the night before at a set rate of $50 so I…

Los Angeles; Venice Beach, Santa Monica & Beverly Hills #11

Day 25 was the first full day after Trek America had come to an end. Luckily, there was still a few of us together and ready to explore Los Angeles. As I mentioned in my previous USA travel post, we were staying in the Samesun Venice Beach Hostel. It was in an amazing location, but not the best hostel I’ve been in though. Venice Beach has an incredible vibe and was one of my favourite places in LA, we spent the morning just people watching in a beachside cafe before casually strolling along to Santa Monica. I can’t tell you how…

California Dreaming; San Diego & Arriving in Los Angeles #10

Ever since I was 10 years old, I dreamt about going to California. I’m not even sure why I had this infatuation with Los Angeles and the West Coast. Los Angeles was actually my first holiday as a baby. I was only 18 months old so I’m not really sure if that counts but aged 23, I finally got to go back. On Day 22 of my USA Trip, we left Las Vegas and all the hopes and dreams of winning big on the slot machines and headed towards San Diego, California. We were also creeping up on the final…
