Ideas for a weekend in Las Vegas

After New Orleans we headed to Sin City! We were feeling boujee and stayed at Caesars Palace, I’d definitely recommend paying a little extra in order to stay at one of the major hotels on the Strip, being just one or two streets away can make a huge difference to the atmosphere as it really…

New Orleans: 5 day itinerary

At the beginning of June I headed to the USA for a few weeks with a friend and our first stop was New Orleans, somewhere I’ve been very interested in visiting for quite some time and it didn’t disappoint! We stayed in India House Hostel which was the perfect mixture of having very low prices…

Weekend Guide: Düsseldorf

Recently I headed off to Düsseldorf with my family for a short but sweet weekend, arriving on Friday night and leaving on Monday evening. It might not be the most obvious choice for a getaway, being overshadowed by cities such as Berlin and Munich however the appeal of Düsseldorf shouldn’t be underestimated! We stayed in the NH…

Weekend Guide: Krakow

Krakow is somewhere that I’ve always wanted to visit; I’m a quarter Polish so I’ve been interested to see where some of my ancestry is from. In January I finally visited with three university friends for a ‘beat the January blues’ getaway. We flew out from London Stansted and rented a 2 bed apartment which was located just…

What to do and see in Berlin

Let’s take a trip down memory lane… Back in the glory days of January 2015 when I was still living a glorious student life, my housemates and I decided to take a little trip over to Berlin before starting a new semester. Just like all of my other mini-breaks, it was of course a cheap…

A delightful weekend in Rome

One of the first trips I took with friends was back in my second year of university, when my housemate and I spontaneously booked a long weekend to Rome in January to beat the post-Christmas blues! We got a pretty cheap deal from TravelRepublic so flights + accommodation (including breakfast) came in at under £200 each. We stayed…

Bristol Upfest 2016: photo gallery

Every year, South Bristol comes alive with the street art festival Upfest. Based around North Street in Bedminster, a collection of the world’s best artists come into town to redecorate the place. I was there on the first day which explains some of the incomplete pieces below but regardless I’m sure you can still appreciate what…

New York at New Year

A while back, I was lucky enough to visit New York over New Year 2013/14 with my family. We stayed in the Roosevelt Hotel in midtown Manhattan which I’d highly recommend, it has a stunningly ornate lobby and has a real ‘wow’ impact on arrival. It was especially magical around Christmas time, it was beautifully decorated and…

How to spend a weekend in Edinburgh

Recently one of my oldest friends moved up to Edinburgh so, although it’s obviously very sad that she won’t be 5 minutes away from me anymore, it does give me a great opportunity to visit a wonderful city more often! I went a few years ago during the Fringe Festival and although it was a great trip,…

24 Hours in… Cambridge

On Friday morning I ventured back to my old university city to reunite with my old pals. We wanted a night out at our old regular Friday night spot, Propaganda at Fez where many drinks were drunk and fun was had. After 2 hours of delays, an absolutely mammoth journey of 6 hours from Bristol to Cambridge…

Budapest Weekender

A while back I got to tick off one of my bucket list destinations – Budapest. It seemed like everybody was visiting except me so my friend and I finally bit the bullet and booked a trip! We visited in December 2015 so it was during the Christmas markets, which I’d really recommend. The city…

Hometown tourist: Bristol

Recently I rather excitingly purchased my first flat so of course I had to have a little shindig to make it official. Some of my university friends came down from London, Leighton Buzzard and Lincoln and having spent the entire three years bleating on relentlessly about how amazing Bristol is, I felt a pressure for…
