All Aboard the Hogwarts Express: My Whistle-Stop Tour

This little mini-break was a tad different to my usual backpacking adventures. A smaller backpack in tow (as opposed to my larger one that I used for trekking around mainland Europe, South-East Asia and Australia), and some quality time to myself just enjoying silence. This trip was also a Harry Potter themed one; I hadn’t […]

Bye, Canada!

Triple overtime at the ice hockey game meant I had five hours sleep on Friday night. Pumped on caffeine Saturday morning, Amy and I ventured out to have a couple of hours of quality time together; with Canadian annual leave being utterly rubbish, we only had a few waking hours here and there between Amy […]

Suits, Butterbeer and Let’s Go Marlies!

After my lazy morning chilling at Amy’s, which I repeated the next day when I started writing this, I thought I had better go out and explore Toronto. I got the bus to the nearest subway station, and headed downtown to where the city is a bit lively. A lovely hot day, I was rocking […]

I’m like a shooting star, I’ve come so far: Expensive food, rain and Aladdin

I’m currently finishing this blog off while on a Megabus to Boston. I’ve loved my time in NYC, but I’ve been suffering from exhaustion so badly, it’s really bit a downer on me. So apologies in advance, this won’t be as entertaining as my usual posts. Nonsense, it will be spectacular as always 😉✌🏽 I […]

Welcome to the Big Apple

After a restless night sleep due to waking up with the noise of the fan, snoring, people pottering about, as well as my foot pain, I was happy to leave the hostel life and head to our AirBnB in New York. The hostel is comfortable, just the atmosphere isn’t quite SE Asia level. A lot […]
