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…

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. It was actually pretty amazing to fly across the Californian coastline, the views were pretty amazing. 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…

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…
