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... ...

Best outdoor activities in Kansas City

Kansas City is known for its barbecue delights and jazz heritage but, did you know it's also a great place for outdoor activities too? Straddling the State line of Kansas and Missouri in America's Midwest, you're never far from wide-open spaces just waiting to be explored. When you're done with all that exploring get a good night's rest in Kansas City before doing it all over again tomorrow! Watch a game of "friz" Image via Flikr ...

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 ...

Best views of the Golden Gate Bridge

Our first impressions of San Francisco weren't the best but that all changed on our second day when we finally saw the Golden Gate Bridge. No matter how many times you've seen photos of the bridge, and despite the fact it's not actually golden, the many views of the Golden Gate Bridge are spectacular! Here are some places in San Francisco to get the best views of the Golden Gate Bridge from up close and ...

Cycling into the sea at Iona Beach

You don't have to go far from Vancouver to find quiet beaches and secluded spots. Heck, you don't even have to leave downtown (just go exploring Stanley Park and you can find a trail that with no-one else on it!). There are numerous beaches, woods, mountains and more to see in Vancouver and the surrounding area and one of these is Iona Beach. And, thanks to its proximity to the airport it's also super accessible. ...

The best budget Airbnbs & hotels in Portland

Portland is one of the world's cool cities. I didn't know anything about Portland before we went apart from it was where the 'hipsters' lived and I only knew that based on numerous articles I read. To be honest I don't think it was that hipster which is a good thing (I still associate hipster with London's Shoreditch and for that reason I'm not a fan of super hipster places). Portland had cool coffee shops ...
