Route 66 is known as the “Main Street of America” and a long-a*s street it is indeed! Route 66 starts in Illinois and ends in California and, if you look at the map below, you can see why it has this name. It effectively cuts across America and is arguably the most famous highway in U.S! … Continue Reading

Disclaimer: This trip to Calico was another impromptu stop on the trip (albeit a rather nice one)! On the drive to Hollywood after 3 days in Las Vegas (which was so much fun but more of that in another post soon), my friends and I figure we might as well break up the journey with a stop … Continue Reading

The Northern Lights probably need no introduction. The images of them are so iconic and they are a natural wonder that are even more amazing to see in real life. Seeing them in person is an experience I cherish so much and would recommend to anyone anywhere to try to do! The day I saw … Continue Reading

Challenge! You’re breezing through New York for one night and need to catch a flight to London the very next day! Can you see all the major sights and get a goood feel for New York in the next 24 hours? This is actually a real life scenario we faced a while back and essentially … Continue Reading

Part Deux is here! Swiftly flying in following Numero Uno! As per my previous post with the view from The Empire State Building, here’s the corresponding view from the The Rockefeller Center. I won’t waste your time on any more waffle. You know the drill! 🙂 Now that you have both, you can fully decide and … Continue Reading

This is a fairly quick post and is the first of two posts! The next one will follow very shortly. Effectively, as you can see from the photos at the top of the Eiffel Tower, I love cityscape photos – especially ones taken at dusk/sunset/night! I’ve been fortunate enough to have been at the top … Continue Reading

Seattle’s Pike Place Market is, hands down, one of the spots you have to see when you’re visiting Seattle. I mean, afternoon, it’s probably one of the most well-known and iconic spots in the city.  Yes, it might only one tiny part of the city but there are so many amazing things to do in … Continue Reading

Monument Valley is another great iconic American landmark – set across two states, it is easily one of America’s most memorable landmarks – you’ve probably seen it in films, magazines, on TV adverts or in music videos and trust me, it’s so much more impressive in person! Monument Valley is actually part of the Colorado … Continue Reading

Antelope Canyon is apparently one of the most visited canyons and it makes obvious sense that a trip across the south of the USA would be incomplete without a visit to Antelope Canyon. To be fair, we barely made it there as we’d already packed so much into our day and thought we might have … Continue Reading

… because not everything has to be taken so seriously! 🙂 My friends and I had to put this on our road trip itinerary as we wanted a full range of experience as we drove across America – that included everything from party cities like Vegas and New Orleans to more laidback places like San … Continue Reading

This is easily one of the most beautiful places I’ve been to and I’ll show you why. No tips. No advice – just a chance to indulge in (photos of) a tropical paradise. None of us could believe our luck when we drove up to the hotel – I think we definitely picked a fantastic hotel … Continue Reading

I get the sense that people in Miami make an effort to look good – whether that’s on a more personal level or just to do with their possessions, people appear to take a lot of pride in themselves and things they own and Miami appears to be the perfect place to show it all … Continue Reading

Seattle is one of my favourite American cities. Im fact, it reminds me of Edinburgh in the UK in a lot of ways. Not in terms of the architecture or anything else fairly obvious, more in terms of the vibe of being in a city. It’s big enough that you don’t feel claustrophobic, yet small … Continue Reading

New York is a huge city and one that’s incredible to explore. With so many things to see and do, it can actually be quite daunting when it’s your first visit to New York City. Over the past years, I have been lucky enough to travel to the United States a few times. A country … Continue Reading
