The Top 31 Fun Things To Do in Las Vegas

It’s no secret that Las Vegas is one of my favourite places in the whole world. It’s one of those destinations that is like marmite, you either love it or hate it. From the moment, I drove down the Strip, my mind was blown. There really is nowhere like Las Vegas. I loved it so much that I returned a few weeks later to experience it all over again. It’s an adults playground with hundreds of things to do. You can even travel around the world in one day by visiting all the incredibly themed hotels and casinos. To be…

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…

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…

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…

Escorted Travel Tours: The Pros & Cons!

Whilst out in America for 9 weeks, I spent the first three weeks on an organised escorted tour across the country from NYC to LA. The next six weeks were spent doing my own things, I spent some time travelling with people that I had met, did a few weeks planned by myself and the finally met my friend in NYC. I got to experience both sides of travelling within an escorted group, riding solo’ and planning everything myself.  When it comes to travelling, everyone is different but it’s got me thinking about my preferred way of travelling. Escorted Travel…
