South Kensington Museum Guide

South Kensington Museum Guide

The last time I took the train down to London, I headed to one of my areas of London: South Kensington! South Kensington is arguably the most charming part of London. On a sunny day, t's a great place to walk around, and it's great for rainy days, as there are three great museums right [...]

Ahh Paris... The City of Lights and Love. I've been to Paris quite a few times now... and every time I've gone has been so special. Paris is like no other place. Paris is a place you should visit more than once. The first time to see all of the touristy must-sees, and the second [...]

Must Visit Places in Tenerife

Must Visit Places in Tenerife

Tenerife is home to soooo many amazing places! Phil and I rented a car, so we were able to cover a LOT of ground. While places like Santa Cruz and Playa de las Américas were amazing for grabbing a bite to eat, we found some other gems that shouldn't be missed! Teide National Park   [...]

The Ultimate Place to Stay if You LOVE Hiking

The Ultimate Place to Stay if You LOVE Hiking

I've said it before and I'll say it again: if you go to Tenerife for ONLY the beach, you're selling yourself short! I fell in LOVE with Tenerife's lesser-known side of jungle hiking and long walks. Our first night was spent at a mountain hostel, and BOY was that a great introduction to Tenerife. You drive up [...]

Ever feel like you need to get out of the city and see some nature? I sure do! The past weekend, I was feeling a bit sluggish. Instead of taking a day to rest, I decided to get out and see some Scottish nature! Sometimes all you need is a little fresh air. I hiked [...]

A Different Side of Tenerife: Relaxing at Hotel La Quinta Roja

A Different Side of Tenerife: Relaxing at Hotel La Quinta Roja

Tenerife is so much more than a place to party and drink to your heart's content. If you're just going to Tenerife for Playa De Las Americas, you're selling yourself short. The nature (from deserts to jungle) and small towns are what make this island so special. My favourite? Garachico. After climbing El Teide, Phil [...]

Being a Kid Again: A Disneyland Paris Guide

Being a Kid Again: A Disneyland Paris Guide

When I was younger, I was living in California and being homeschooled. This was great for many reasons, but the most important (by far!) was that my mum, sister, and I could get off-peak Disneyland season tickets. They were much cheaper than regular tickets (though prices have certainly gone up since then), and we got [...]

How to Travel Switzerland on a Budget

How to Travel Switzerland on a Budget

Where to Stay Honestly, accommodation is EXPENSIVE. If you're staying in the cities, I'd do some research ahead of time. If you're travelling with others, it's probably cheaper to book a hotel room than to stay in hostels. Hostels can be incredibly pricey here, but if you're a solo traveller, it might still be cheaper [...]
