Travels

There’s no better place to be lost than on an adventure than in a new city or a new country. You could be by yourself, with friends or family, or complete strangers and it’ll always be a crazy adventure. Let’s go on another?

24 hours in Washington DC

14th October 2018

After watching basically every TV series or film that is set in Washington DC, we couldn’t miss our opportunity to finally visit Washington while we were in New York over the summer. Side note: I haven’t actually blogged about New York yet, even though we went in August – oops – but I find writing […]

A Weekend in Seville, Spain

5th December 2017

On the final day of Autumn term I got a flight out to Seville to visit one of my very old friends from school to celebrate her 21st birthday. She lives in Seville for her year abroad as part of her degree. Good choice eh? When we arrived, we napped as early flights are exhausting, […]

Visiting Malham Cove and Gordale Scar, Yorkshire

9th October 2017

Yesterday, Becca and I decided to take a walk at Malham Cove and Gordale Scar in the Yorkshire Dales. Nothing beats having a long walk in the fresh air and going to bed with achey feet and sleeping like a baby bear in hibernation. It is something we’ve talked about doing for a while, and as […]

What to do at The Grand Canyon, Arizona

16th September 2017

After visiting Las Vegas we drove to the Grand Canyon in Arizona. Well we’d booked a hotel there, but we hadn’t booked transport yet. So at 6:30am we went down to the rental car section of our hotel (because Vegas has everything) and we tried to get a car. Our options were an average sized […]

The Hoover Dam, Nevada

29th August 2017

As we drove from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon we passed the Hoover Dam. You can’t see it from the road, you have to go down a very narrow steep road, through high security and park for the pleasure of seeing the dam. But it’s so worth it! The Dam impounds Lake Mead (which […]

A weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada

28th August 2017

So Las Vegas is like nowhere I’ve ever been before. We drove across from LA which took us around four hours through the desert and with Friday traffic, before out of nowhere in the middle of nothing was shiny Vegas BABY (said like Joey). There is no equivalent to Las Vegas in the UK, in […]

Los Angeles, California

25th August 2017

I thought writing about Los Angeles would be easy as I only have great things to say, but there’s so much to mention. We LOVED Los Angeles. Hollywood Boulevard – Chinese Theatre, Dolby Theatre  This not only has all the Hollywood stars on the pavement but it is is also home to the Chinese theatre, […]

Reunion on the North Norfolk Coast

23rd August 2017

On Tuesday Becca and I woke up ridiculously to have a reunion on the North Norfolk Coast with Lucy. We were heading to the coast for an overdue catch up, sea air and of course, Fish and Chips. We drove inland and picked up Lucy from her idyllic house and then headed to Wells-Next-To-The-Sea. Wells […]

Exploring Yorkshire with Franky

27th May 2017

Franky and I love to procrastinate and explore Yorkshire, the further away we can get from our work the better, it seems. Our adventures began after exams, before that the most adventurous thing was a Gatehouse coffee revision sesh instead of going to the library to have a tuna mayo jacket potato, standard. So we […]
