How I Got Tickets to Visit The White House, Washington DC

One of my first stops whilst on my American Road Trip last October was Washington DC. Obviously DC is the US Capital City steeped in so much cultural and political history. To tell you the truth, DC was never on my list of places to visit. However, I quickly fell in love with the city. We spent two nights in the city (you can read about everything we got up to here) but one of the most memorable parts of the trip was visiting The White House and actually making it inside the grounds! One of our first port of…

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…

A Solo Trip to Universal Studios, Hollywood with Attractiontix #12

I can’t believe how long it’s taking me to get through all of the USA blog posts. I don’t even think I’m halfway through my trip yet. In Part 11 of my American travel diaries, we were exploring all things Venice Beach, Santa Monica & Beverly Hills but it was time for a couple of days in the theme parks! The first stop; Universal Studios, Hollywood. I’d partnered up with AttractionTix to go on a solo adventure to Universal Studios, Hollywood. Can you believe that I’ve actually been to Universal Studios around 22 years ago on my first family holiday…

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…

My Top 10 Meals from 9 weeks in the USA

One of the main things that I miss from my time in the USA was all the insanely amazing food that I had over there. I did over indulge myself for the whole 63 days I was over there. I’ve been asked so many times what and where my favourite thing was to eat so I thought I’d narrow it down to my Top 10. I was actually a very bad blogger and didn’t photograph most of my meals. I’m now regretting this as a bumper Food Diary would’ve been a pretty food idea. Unfortunately, you’ll have to do with…
