Books I’ve read recently and loved

I've learned quite a lot from these past six months of travelling (I can't believe it's been six months since we left the UK!). I've learnt that spending time outside is extremely important to me, that powdered milk is a satisfactory alternative to real milk when you have no fridge, and that I love reading and should make more time for it. I started off the trip by downloading a few books on my phone ...

Best stylish waterproof coats for autumn

Since I've been in Vancouver it's been pretty much non-stop sunshine. I'm definitely not complaining about it since it's made me feel like I'm permanently on holiday, I have the best tan I've ever had in my life and my new job means I'm always outside so this weather is much appreciated! But, as I'm reminded time and time again by Vancouverites, the rain will come and when it does I'm going to need a waterproof ...

What to do in El Paso

Sitting on the border (quite literally) of America and Mexico is El Paso. When we finally (read here to see what happened made it when we tried to get to El Paso & through border controls without our passports...) made it to El Paso we decided to stick around and check out the city a while. After all, a city on a border that appears in the news almost every week is sure to have some interesting ...

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 ...

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... ...

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 ...
