The Hall of Breakfast experience in Salt Lake City

Right guys, get ready to have your mind blown. The Hall of Breakfast is one of the coolest, most creative, inspiring, fun and colourful places I’ve ever been to! And I’m gonna give you a front row tour. 🙂 The Hall of Breakfast is a pop-up art gallery… with a difference. It’s a fully immersive experience. It consists of loads of rooms, each one themed around a different breakfast cereal. How cool! Think: massive fried eggs, a walk-in fridge, a…

Utah National Parks Video: Canyonlands and Arches

It’s official: I’m hooked on American National Parks. As part of my recent trip to Salt Lake City, I spent a few days exploring the National Parks of south-eastern Utah. From the massive expanses of Canyonlands, to the sculpted beauty of Arches… I’ve honestly never seen anything like it before. It even surpassed my trip to Yosemite National Park last year, when I camped overnight deep within the forest. I’m already day-dreaming of my next National Park adventure! Our Utah…

A Week in Salt Lake City, Utah (video!)

Hopefully you guys saw my post last week, all about the Cricut Make-A-Thon conference? The super cool folks at Cricut flew me out for the event… but I decided to expand on the trip and turn it into a little holiday, too! Gotta make the most of that 9 hour transatlantic flight. ? Gareth and I landed in Salt Lake three days before the conference, which gave us a good bit of time to explore the city. You guys, we loved…

7 holiday essentials I NEVER travel without

There’s nothing I love more than a good city break. Sauntering down unknown streets, camera in one hand, local guidebook in the other. Bliss! I’m lucky enough to go on foreign city breaks a couple of times a year. You can see some of my recent travel vlogs here. Over the years, I’ve come to realise that there are a handful of items that I consistently reach to when I’m packing my suitcase. From city breaks to country retreats, these…

A mini break in Lisbon, Portugal (with video!)

I ticked a big item off my bucket list earlier this month. I spent a long weekend in Lisbon, one of the foodie capitals of Europe! It was every bit as picturesque and dreamy as I was hoping. We spent 4 days exploring colourful streets, eating custard tarts (SO TASTY) and strolling along the waterfront. You’d never suspect it from the photos, but the weather was a bit hit-and-miss (we got caught in a huuuge rainstorm on the first day). But we…

NYE in Bruges, Belgium (video)

I know, I know; New Year’s Eve is a distant memory. But I’m gonna revisit it for one last blog post, I hope you don’t mind! Way back on the 29th December, I hopped in the car and drove all the way to Dover, through the channel tunnel, across France and into Belgium. Phew, what a journey! I then spent a few nights in Bruges with Gareth and his family, to celebrate New Year. It was the first time I’ve…

Christmas Gift Guide for Adventurers (3/5)

It’s no secret that I LOVE to travel. My YouTube channel is full of travel videos, and I’ve shared a fair few travel-related posts here on the blog. If you know someone who is as wanderlust-stricken as me, then this gift guide for adventurers should come in handy! Don’t forget to share this post on social media if you found it useful (or just want to drop a few hints!). 🙂 1. Polaroid Zip Printer. I used my mini Polaroid printer…

Yosemite National Park travel video

Yosemite Valley is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to. Looming sequoia trees tower above you as the sun filters through the canopy, peaceful streams trickle by and wildlife is abundant in every direction you look. In my Yosemite National Park travel vlog, you can follow along as I hike to Yosemite Falls, Half Dome village, El Capitan and more of the top sights in Yosemite Valley. We were only in Yosemite National Park for one day, but we…
