From the horror stories I had been told about South America, it’s safe to say I was absolutely sh*tting myself on my flight from Miami to Lima. Not that I’d ever let on I was nervous, I didn’t want to tell my family that I was hesitant about my safety as I didn’t want to… Continue reading Hola, que pasa ?
The Amtrak train from Savannah to Miami was a fairly smooth process. You’ve got plenty of leg room and a car assistant who’s pretty much only there to check your tickets & go get you coffee and snacks from the food car if and when you want them. Not that I needed any. Mary had… Continue reading I’m in Miami b*tch…
Looking for a bus from New York City to Savannah, South Carolina was a tasking process. My aunt Mary lives on the border of South Carolina and Georgia and finding a bus that stopped near there was proving to be near mission impossible. I didn’t want to fly because I’d left it so last minute… Continue reading South Carolina: A state of Mind.
When I’d started looking at my route round the world to begin with, I quickly realised that I had extended family that I’d never even met before in practically every single continent I was headed. My gran comes from a family of 10 and between herself and the rest of her siblings they pretty much… Continue reading New York, New York: wee megs in the big Apple.
The next leg of my USA trip took me to Denver, Colorado where I was headed to catch up with another old friend i hadn’t seen since Sweden 2016. Throughout my travels, Jake had been following along and popping up every now and then with helpful suggestions on where to go and where to hike,… Continue reading Colorado: Boulder(s) & Rocky Mountains
These blogs have been a long time coming, and it got to a point where I couldn’t decide if they were even gonna be happening at all. Blogging, especially in America, became a little tasking. I felt like I was writing not for me anymore, but for the scrutiny of other readers. I found myself… Continue reading Keep Austin weird
Probably the single most asked question I’ve had since starting out in January, and I always have the same answer. I worked hard. I gave myself a goal and I worked *hard* towards it. Sitting in the library in 4th year knowing it would all be over soon just wasn’t enough. I needed something to… Continue reading How can I afford to travel the world?
Yellowstone was my favourite. Hands down. I had NO idea what I was in for so when I saw it for the first time... you just need to imagine my face - it was an absolute picture. After getting past the wild boar obstruction on the road we drove through the massive park en route… Continue reading Guys& Geysers: part 3
Continuing on from where I left off last time, once we had recuperated in Phoenix, Arizona with a nice comfy bed, a pool and our first ever baseball game (corn dogs& buckets of ice cream included!) we headed west in the direction of LA where we were due to return our rental car a couple… Continue reading West Coast Road Trip Part 2: Grizzly Bears & Zebra Wagons
Flying over and landing in Las Vegas was one of the most bizarre things I’ve ever seen in my life. One minute you’re flying over a vast nothingness, just bare dessert, and the next you’re soaring over gigantic canyons and toothpaste-coloured salt lakes that hardly look real. And then out of nowhere, you see it.… Continue reading Road Trip USA: National Park Edition
