All the food we ate & loved in Portland, Oregon

I've probably said it before but I LOVED Portland. It was my second favourite city of our trip (Vancouver may have been the end of our trip but it's my favourite). What helped me love Portland wasn't just the quirky attractions or the huuuuge second hand bookshop. It definitely had something to do with the delicious food we ate during our few days there. I really think we found some of the best food in ...

Vancouver’s best independent shops and where to find them

Since we moved into our flat we've been on a mission to decorate it with nice, homey bits and pieces. Our places in London were a mis-match of things from both our family homes and cheap Ikea bits. This time around we tried to avoid Ikea (although we found and splurged on this chair that always gets compliments) in favour of more local, unique pieces. Most of our furniture was bargain Craigslist finds plus a ...

The best things to do in Yosemite National Park

After breaking down in Yosemite National Park and effectively losing a day of exploring to logistics, we spent the following few days exploring as much as we could of the park. There were still parts of the park we couldn't get to as they were closed off by snow (in mid-March!). In fact, the only part of Yosemite National Park we could see was The Valley. Nevertheless we saw a lot and had a great ...

Breaking Down in the Middle of Yosemite National Park

After the longest detour of our entire trip (6 hours!) we finally made it to Yosemite National Park. I had big hopes for Yosemite National Park. It's one of the National Parks that everyone has heard of thanks in part to it being close to San Francisco and being the main subject of plenty of John Muir musings. Upon our arrival we got a flat tyre which didn't set things off to the best start... ...

Where to stop on BC’s Sea to Sky highway

No matter how long you're visiting Vancouver for you should definitely make time for a trip with plenty of stops on BC's Sea to Sky Highway. Otherwise known as the 99, this route winds it's way up from sea level in Vancouver to the mountains of Whistler. It's absolutely stunning and there are beautiful vistas or Howe Sound, the islands and forests. Not only is it a beautiful drive, but there are also plenty of ...

Favourite photos from California’s Big Sur

When we decided to head down California's Highway 1 towards Big Sur we didn't get as far as we hoped. Last winter there was a huge storm which flooded most of the points travellers usually stop off at and resulted in a bridge having to be torn down and rebuilt. It was still in the rebuilding phase when we were there in May (the water having only just receeded) and this meant the road was ...
