Vegas is BIG, it’s BRIGHT and it’s on 24/7!

In saying all of this, I was so daunted by the idea of organising Vegas because I was worried we would miss out on something, so here are some of my tips and a few things I wish I knew before we got there… (more…)



As we began the drive from San Francisco to Las Vegas, we stopped off at Santa Cruz for a night. Yes, the town infamous for the Santa Cruz clothing & skateboard lines.

We had so much fun along the Boardwalk after checking in. We walked past the Fair to the Pier and watch the Sea Lions playing in the sun (more…)


San Francisco was our first and also last stop on our Summer American Road Trip as it was the airport we flew in and out of. It was so great to visit twice with 3 months in between each as the weather was so different!

It’s been an amazing experience and I’ve definatly managed to tick quite a lot of bucket list items off! Needless to say, every day or 2 I get messages from people asking questions which I LOVE because I wish I had of thought to ask MORE questions to people before we left so that some things weren’t a shock…but you know what they say, you do your best learning when you’re thrown in the deep end!

Anyway, obviously I can’t cover everything in one post, there will be many to come that will cover the main areas we have been but I thought I would start off with my top 20 hints & tips, and just a few weird things in general that we have come across!
Also, some of our hints for apps to use, grocery stores to keep an eye out for etc. (more…)
