New York, New York, what a wonderful town….
And wonderful it sure is, especially the food and drink scene. From fancy restaurants and rooftop bars to markets and traditional street food, New York City has it all. There is so much to be savoured and never enough time to try it all, so I thought I would share a few of my favourite finds from my most recent visit to the Big Apple.
I hope you find something to tickle your tastebuds! Continue reading
In February we spent a couple of days exploring a little section of the Gulf Coast of Florida. It was a delightful 48 hours spent wandering the beaches, eating ice cream and drinking local beers. The sky was blue, the sea was turquoise, the sand was white and the parks were truly beautiful. We stuck to the southern barrier islands to the west of St. Petersburg, namely Treasure Island, St Pete Beach and Fort de Soto.
There is so much to do in these beachside towns that you could probably spend a good week here and still not quite do everything! I’ve made a little guide to everything we experienced when we were there in the hopes of giving you a good starting point. Continue reading
Walt Disney World is one of the most enjoyable places I’ve visited, but the fun is not just contained within the parks! There’s a lot you can do within the resort itself without needing to buy an entry ticket to the four main sites. One of the numerous activities on offer here is mini golf.
My last post was all about the incredible Diagon Alley section of Universal Orlando, but today we’re taking the Hogwarts Express over to the Islands of Adventure park to see Hogsmeade Village and Hogwarts Castle.
If you’ve been reading for a while, then you know how much of a huge fangirl I am of Harry Potter. I have been ever since I was at school and I still am now. In fact, if anything, I love it more than ever.
It literally fills me with joy when I get to experience something that was part of the books and/or films or the inspiration behind it, so imagine how I felt getting to visit an immersive replica of Diagon Alley, complete with shops, The Leaky Cauldron and a giant fire breathing dragon.
During winter and into spring, the warm, Gulf-fed freshwater springs of Florida get some very interesting visitors.
I had been wanting to visit New Orleans for at least 7 years but when the time arose for booking a holiday I chose to plan a trip to Peru instead (another long time dream – and we all know what happened after that…), so it took me a long time to finally get there.
I have to say it was everything I thought it would be, full of food, drink, music and colourful culture. There is music playing on every corner in the French Quarter, especially jazz and blues, and there are fabulous places to eat, people having fun and the city is just alive and full of fun! Sadly, we were a little unlucky with the rainy weather so we didn’t get to experience everything we had planned, however we did pack a lot in to our New Year’s Eve trip.
The following experiences in New Orleans are by no means exhaustive (there is so much more to see and explore), but it’s a selection of things and places that I loved doing and would definitely recommend to do if you were planning a trip yourselves.
