New York: Spend or Save? Part 1

Even as a small child, I have always wanted to go to New York. It’s where things happened. Where the cool kids lived. From the cast of Friends, to characters in my YA  angsty books (Princess Diaries, Nick and Norah Judy Blume books etc), New York was always The Dream. So when I got the chance to go in Summer 2013, as part of an epic cross country trip, I couldn’t believe it. Actual, real-life New York.

Chester Roomzzz Review*

impression that hotels should be nice and fancy (& a little pretentious), with an over priced restaurant and unnecessary room service. However, after staying in two Roomzzz apart-hotels, I am actually gutted that they’re not in more cities – I love them! (They are also incredibly priced if you’re on a budget!)

Wilson’s Kitchen, Southport – The Steaks are High

My name’s Codie, and I LOVE steak. It’s up there with my favourite foods and is probably 90% of the reason I’ve not yet managed to become vegetarian. I bloody love steak. (I enjoy it medium-rare, so you could say I love bloody steak!). So when I heard about Wilson’s Kitchen in Southport having a steak special on a Wednesday, and our anniversary happening to be on a Wednesday, it felt like fate – or at least a happy coincidence!

Edinburgh Exploration (December 2015)

First things first, Edinburgh is equal parts beautiful and hilly. For a girl from the flatlands, with chronic fatigue, this was a bloody struggle at times! But totally worth it! Steven found the hotel, “Edinburgh Capital Hotel“, and for £113 for two people for two nights it was an absolute steal! We had originally splashed out a cheeky £20 for …

BEDN: Where shall we go on our Honeymoon?!

Wanderlust-inflicted travel-lovers that we are, Steven and I are already thinking about our honeymoon. We have so many ideas and (sadly) we can’t do them all, so I figured there was a blog post in there somewhere! Our first thought was Disneyland Florida, spending our days screaming on rides and watching amazing shows and taking selfless with princesses – the …

La Bandera, Manchester Review

It’s not very often I get to go out for anything fancier than Pizza Express (man, I love dough-balls!), so when I do, it’s only right that I blog about it!

Disneyland Ride Review

Rides are a big part of the Disneyland experience, and as a big fan of rollercoasters and thrill rides, I knew I wanted to go on everything. It was a bit more difficult, however, trying to work out what the children could/would want to go on, when we didn’t know much about the ride. So, I’ve put together this handy little guide of the rides (poet & I know it), so you can work out what is worth the wait, and what will end in terrified tears!

Disneyland Paris: I’m Back!

I have blisters on my blisters, Let it Go stuck in my head and I keep finding glitter everywhere – safe to say I had the best time at Disneyland! Before we went, I read a lot of really useful blogs about how to get the best out of our trip, and so, of course, I have decided to write …

The Buda-best of Budapest

We’ve had an amazing four days and I already know a few people who are planning on venturing out to Budapest this side of Christmas, so I want to make sure my reviews and blogs on this are as detailed as possible. Hopefully they’ll be just as interesting to read for those just wanting to know about our trip, as they will be useful to those using them as travel advice.

This week…

I am off to Budapest! (We leave in a few hours and I’m not even slightly packed yet… Oops!) I’m going to blog and vlog my adventures whilst in beautiful Hungary, but I’m not sure if/how much internet we will have, so if I don’t post for a few days, or reply to emails, this is why! I guess I …
