Le Meridien Hotel - San Francisco

I stayed at the Le Meridien for my last night in San Francisco, I had originally thought about spending the night out of the city which is why I only booked my original hotel for 3 nights but in the end went with the less hassle option of staying in the city but rather than add on a night in my first hotel - Villa Florence I decided to try out another hotel in a different area, because who doesn't love testing out new hotels?


Flying Norwegian Air

In 14 trips to the USA I have only ever not flown with Virgin Atlantic 1.5 times, once swapping them for American Airlines and the half, I flew home from Boston last year with Norwegian Air. After that flight I vowed never again to step out of my comfort zone and to just stick with Virgin, after all I clearly have some kind of dedication and love for them when they've been my chosen airline for 13 trips across the pond, however I won't deny the decline in the airline slightly over the years even just thinking about the free amenity kit that used to await you on your seat when you boarded.


Villa Florence Hotel - San Francisco

When I hit the 'confirm booking' button for my first 3 nights accommodation in San Francisco I wasn't actually 100% sure where I was booking for, I used Priceline and their express booking system, which if you didn't know works by them giving you a price, the location, star rating & amenities of a hotel and due to not declaring what it will be till you've booked it's offered at a discounted rate.


Exploring San Francisco

I don't know if it's a little bit of laziness or just the need to be organised, maybe a bit of both but when I go on a holiday that will include more than lazing around a pool with a cocktail and sunbathing for most of the day I like to have my tickets for all the things I'm going to be seeing in advance, doesn't it just make life easier knowing that they're sorted and already paid for? my usual go to for this is some kind of city pass that gives you an option to visit a number of the typical tourist spots in one easy ticket.


Why you should be booking a Disney Cruise

As I've just booked another cruise, sorry Disney parks but the cruises are taking over, I figured what a perfect time to tell you why you should be booking a cruise with Disney too. This will be my 5th cruise and I'll finally be ticking off my last ship, the Dream, now I know technically I've not done my 4th cruise or my 3rd ship but by the time I step aboard the Dream next January I will have.


Upper Class with Virgin Atlantic

I love to travel, it's definitely one of my absolute favourite things in life and as long as I can remember I've enjoyed every holiday, oh apart from that one time I was forced to go camping as a young child and forever declared that I'd rather stay home than go through that again.


Running for a good cause

You may remember that last year I had two amazing Disney park trips with my amazing friend Lottie first there was our 11 night trip to Walt Disney World and then our 6 night trip to Disneyland, a good part of those trips were for Lottie to take part in the RunDisney weekends and of course, I had to be there to support her and by support, I mean continue to sleep while she woke up at 3am to take part in those amazing achievements.

Rock the dots

When it comes to Disney my favourite character isn't a Princess, it's not a side kick and it's certainly not a villain, my favourite always has been and forever will be the style icon herself, Minnie Mouse and of course, bows and polka dots are definitely my thing.


My favourite Instagram spots in Disney World

13 years ago when I went on my first trip to Walt Disney World, long before Instagram was even a thing and I didn't even think about photos, well not beyond taking as many as possible in any location that took our fancy at the time, boy how things have changed.

Walt Disney World: Caribbean Beach Resort

If you've been around for a while or know me, you may know that I have the aim to stay at every Walt Disney World resort and my trip at the end of last year marked my 10th resort, Caribbean Beach wasn't high on my list in terms of feeling like I needed to tick it off asap but I couldn't say no to the deal I found and it meant I'd be left with just 1 moderate resort I needed to stay at.

Hi, 2018

Wow, where did you spring from? it feels like just yesterday we welcomed 2017 and now here we are, starting a new year yet again and a week into it already. I know they say the years just go by in a flash once you've hit 30 but this is starting to take the mick a bit now, I didn't think they meant this fast.
