Waking up to that amazing Floridian sunshine has got to be one of the best ways to start a holiday! What makes it even better is starting the day slowly with an amazing breakfast and boy does The Diplomat do a mean breakfast! Like seriously, it’s the kind that makes you sneak extras out so … Continue Reading

The next day in Fort Lauderdale, we started the way every good day in Florida should start – with a breakfast of champions (at the Pelican Grand Beach). I decided to go for something different this morning and skip the pancakes in favour of steak and eggs. Steak and eggs isn’t really something you’d get … Continue Reading

Look, it’s probably pretty obvious by now that I gorge on anything sweet! Drip, dip or roll it in sugar and I swear it’ll be gone without you even batting an eyelid! 🤣 I like to say it’s because I just want to ‘taste the world’ or something fluffy like that the harsh reality is that … Continue Reading

New York State is pretty special, with so much diversity, gorgeous landscapes and amazing hikes that are so much fun to explore. There’s a whole heap of the best things to do in New York State but it’s sometimes so easy to forget when you’ve got the bright lights of New York City. Now, let … Continue Reading

California is one heck of a diverse state and a place you can go to and have totally different experiences at any time of the year. Now, one of the things that always comes to mind when I think of visiting California is its natural beauty. Yes, you’ve got some incredible cities like San Francisco … Continue Reading

Perched in the south-east of Florida, Fort Lauderdale is a city that’s amazing to explore and one spot you shouldn’t miss whilst in the state. It’s a city that in so many ways feels much less undiscovered than places like Miami… but one place that you definitely shouldn’t ignore. I mean, there are so many … Continue Reading

Prior to a few weeks ago, Fort Lauderdale wasn’t really a place I knew too much of. I think all I knew of it until we actually visited was that it was a place you caught the cruise ships from when you were in Florida. Seeing as I’ve never actually been on a cruise, I … Continue Reading

It’s funny, after travelling around the United States on a road trip and other individual trips, I was a little worried that the things to do in Boston would seem quite ‘samey’ or ‘run-of-the-mill’ if you catch my drift? That’s not saying that every place in the United States is the same – Far from! … Continue Reading

After exploring the beautiful street art in Hollywood and stopping off for a bite to eat, we decided to have a little jaunt around Hollywood, Florida – which, in a lot of ways, looks and feels pretty similar to Hollywood in LA with its palm tree-lined avenues and rather cool and sometimes quirky houses. We stopped … Continue Reading

The USA is a diverse country. In fact, I’d go as far as saying it can be completely different depending on which state you visit. Form places like Hawaii, Washington and Florida – the expanse of places to explore is totally mind-boggling to me. Now, one place I always love returning to is the West … Continue Reading

It’s been a while since I’ve visited a place and just felt like I wanted, nay – needed, to stay for much longer. Typically, I plan my time well enough on my travels (at least, well enough for me) that when ‘home time’ comes rolling on by, I’m very content and happy to head back … Continue Reading

The one (of many) things I love about the United States is how different it can be from one state to the next. It’s one of those country’s where you can hop between states and places to see a totally different side to the country, which is actually a pretty great experience (did anyone say … Continue Reading

Hawaii has to be one of the more unique of all the United States, am I right? After all, it’s the only island state in the whole of the country (well, so I was told). It’s a state that’s filled with some of the best scenery, gorgeous volcanic landscapes and epic vistas that are great … Continue Reading

When many people think of New York, they think of New York City. It’s often the first point that comes to mind and I have to admit I’m guilty of this too. Yup, It’s an incredible city and Lady Liberty is amazing to see, but there’s so much more to New York than New York … Continue Reading
