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…

How to travel Thailand in under 2 weeks

5 flights, 1 overnight train, 12 days… This is what we managed to pack into our trip to Thailand in June. Exhausting but would do it all over again in a heartbeat! Myself and my friend hadn’t been to Asia before and were slightly overwhelmed by the idea of going it alone, and didn’t have…

An Honest Review of New Zealand Hostels (North Island)

I spent 4 weeks travelling around New Zealand, starting in Auckland and ending in Christchurch. Some hostels were great, a few were very much less-than-great so hopefully you will find my experiences useful! Here is my round-up of the accommodation I stayed in on the North Island. South Island accommodation review coming soon! Auckland Haka…

Kiwi Experience Sheepdog (+Milford Explorer) Trip 2017: My Review

Having just returned back from 4 glorious weeks in New Zealand, it is finally time to get back into the swing of real life and let you all know what I got up to! Let me get straight to the basics: I travelled from mid-February to mid-March on the Kiwi Experience bus, using the Sheepdog pass…

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…

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…

A week in Split, Croatia

In the summer of 2015, three university friends and I decided that a holiday would be the perfect way to finish our education together. We chose Split because it seemed to be the perfect mixture of a city/beach break that we were looking for – we wanted the flexibility of being able to relax on the…

A long weekend in Dublin

Dublin has to be in my top three favourite city breaks. This city has everything I look for when booking a weekend getaway: enough history, culture and points of interest to fill up the daytime whilst there is a varied and lively nightlife to experience the city after dark. It certainly didn’t disappoint! Firstly, let’s…
