This time five years ago I was just starting one of the greatest adventures of my life. I was 19, dying to start travelling alone and in love anything American. With a dream of one day living there, I decided to look at my options for a summer in states. Turns out there were lots of choices, but the one I decided would suit me best was BUNAC’s Work America program, as there seemed to be a lot more freedom than a summer working at camp. After just a month of planning and a lot of “oh my god, what…

Amsterdam has been on my travel bucket list for as long as I can remember, so when Ashton (who took the awesome photos in this post), Tamz and Laura invited me along on their weekend trip I really couldn’t say no, could I?

I’ve seen so many…

I’m the same with Birthday’s, Christmas and Mother’s Day. No matter how hard I try to plan in advance, I fall flat on my face and spend hours the day before trying to find the perfect gift. I’m not going to lie, a couple of times I have absolutely nailed it and bought the best gifts ever, but 90% of…

This morning on Timehop I got a notification telling me that it was five years ago to the day that I booked my solo flights to America for four months. I was 19 and looking to go on an adventure between my first and second year, so I couldn’t think of anywhere better to go than California.  That beiTravelling on your own shouldn’t be limited to your gap year.
