The most scenic drive on the Atlantic Coast?

I hadn't even heard of Key West and the Florida Keys until about 18 months ago when, at a blogging conference, there was a PR rep for the area. It looked amazing. Clear blue waters glistening in the sunshine and plenty of colourful fish swimming about in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. What I hadn't appreciated was that the drive down Hwy 1 to Key West was just as spectacular as the ...

Watching an actual rocket launch at The Kennedy Space Centre

When Thom saw there was a rocket launch at the Kennedy Space Centre scheduled for March, it was decided that we'd aim to make it to one. Rocket launches are delayed and rescheduled quite a lot due to all sorts of factors. It could be because of technical difficulties, weather restraints or something else entirely. The rocket launch we eventually attended had been rescheduled too but it worked in our favour. Having whizzed round the ...

How to do a self guided Everglades tour

Before we started our USA road trip I was pretty set on taking an airboat tour once we'd reached the Everglades National Park in Florida. However, when I started researching companies to do this with I went off the idea. Many of the reviews mentioned that guides fed the alligators and other wildlife sweets and food to attract them closer to the boat, some said the boat drivers were pretty dangerous and a lot of ...

9 Underrated Places To Visit On An American East Coast Road Trip

Our American east coast road trip had many, many highlights and I mist admit I didn't really expect that to be the case. I knew where New York was and I knew where Florida was. We were following the coast which was bound to be nice. What I didn't know much about where the towns and places we'd pass on the way. The 1000+ miles in between New York and Florida were a mystery to the ...

How to spend 24ish hours in New York City

The first stop on our crazy road trip across the USA was New York City. Well, really it was Buffalo, the Finger Lakes, a health food store in Ithaca where we found the best vegan cookies (actually the best cookies ever), and Patterson, because we'd seen the film Patterson a few months previously. As we approached New York City we stopped off in New Jersey to park up Elvis (our van). We'd found a car park by ...

We're at the start of our USA road trip where we're cruising down the east coast, rolling along the south, and hiking back up the west until we reach Vancouver. Everyone knows that a you need a road trip play list when embarking on a road trip! That's why I reached out to some travel bloggers and asked them for their one, must have song when off on a road trip. I'd call our road ...

How much does it cost to travel Canada for one month? My spend breakdown.

Maybe it’s just because I’m super nosy but I always like to see how much people end up spending when they’re away travelling. Quite often it shows you don’t need to be a millionaire to travel and it’s a good way of getting an insight into how much a particular country costs to travel in. I figured I may as well share how much it can cost to travel Canada for one month. Some of ...

Ottawa is THE place to be this year

2017 is a huge year of celebration for Canada. That’s because this year marks 150 years of Canada as a nation!

Our first month in Canada

We’ve been in Canada for a month. A whole month. Already! I figured it was about time I updated you about what we’ve been up to in our first month and what’s coming next. (This acts more as a reminder for me about what we've done - but I thought some of you may find it interesting too!) Oh, and if you’re interested to know how much it costs to spend a month travelling Eastern ...
