Top 7 Disney Park Tips! 

Originally posted on Me, Myself and Everything Else:
I’ve been thinking about this post for what seems like forever now and am so excited to finally be sharing it! I’m sure I’ll be back with more because we all know I’ll post this and immediately think of another tip… Anyways! Let’s get real, Nick and I love Disney! We always have. We both loved it when we were younger and together, the love has just grown more! Disneyland was one of the first big trips Nick and I ever took together and then Disneyworld was the first really big trip we took together! We always have the best time and now we still pinch ourselves that we live so close! And no, we don’t get sick of it! If anything, it makes it better in my opinion because on days where its just so crazy and we don’t feel like waiting in line, we don’t have to! We can enjoy what we want and then go somewhere else! No stress of super long days! I’ve…

What it’s like to fly business class when you have no business to be flying business class

The best flying experience of my lyyyfe Last week I was lucky as fuck enough to fly to Australia BUSINESS CLASS. The downside of this is that I’m ruined for life now. I live in London and my father has lived in Australia for some 20 years, so I’ve spent a lot of time on very, very long-haul flights. It’s far from pleasant, of course, being strapped into an upright chair squidged next to strangers and screaming infants for 24 hours but obviously these are first world problems. I’ve developed a formula, and coping mechanisms, and mainly it all revolves around drinking heavily and knocking myself out with sleeping tablets until it’s all over – somehow managing to keep it together during the layover – before emerging, Gollum-like, on the other end. It’s all fucked now that I have experienced what it’s like to fly from London to Australia up at the front of the plane. I flew Cathay Pacific, which I’m told is the best in the world…

City Review: Madrid

Originally posted on travelux:
Madrid is the capital of Spain and not only a popular touristic destination, but also important when it comes to business purposes. Especially the Town Hall and Palacio Real are impressive, but the city has a lot to offer in general. Our city review shows you what we discovered in Madrid! First, our way led us past the National Museum and National Library. The National Library of Spain was founded in 1712 and is thus older than 300 years! Strolling through alleys One very special thing about Madrid is that there are huge streets as well as very small alleys. Strolling around in Madrid, we were able to watch incredible architecture which is mostly historic. Congress of Deputies Madrid One example for that is the building which houses the Congress of Deputies! Botanical Garden Madrid Honestly, I’m not quite sure why we invested the small extra fee to be able to access the Botanical Garden Madrid in December as it was just winter and thus, not much could be seen. Apart…

“Nine Passes” Receiving Rave Reviews

Originally posted on Bri Bruce Productions:
Bruce combines a solid mastery of fly fishing, backpacking and love for his family and the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains to produce a book of true importance. . . . This solidly crafted book is highly recommended to fly fishermen and anyone who has gazed at a distant peak with wonder and curiosity. – Allen Rizzi, Author of The Blackest of Canyons Mr Bruce weaves an engaging account of his journey to walk in the steps of a famous fly fisherman as well as routes taken by four generations of his family. . . . The author balances technical fishing information, descriptions of mountain beauty and wry observations on backpacking culture in way that will interest anyone.– Susan Gilchrist, Artist Todd recounts his solo 300-mile hike through the Sierra high country while reminiscing his childhood memories of family backpacking/fishing expeditions to some of the same locations. . . . Its a fairly brisk-reading travelogue that’s unlike any “fishing guides” or novels done in a fly-fishing setting. For readers its a vicarious adventure or stimulus…

How to Plan Out NYC in 10 Days

I am still on such a high from the big apple! I love it so much! There is so much to see and do and to just look around at! Since this was the boyfriend’s first time I knew we had to hit all the sights. We took a red eye flight and got to the city at 10 am. And then the adventuring began! Because we had so many things we wanted to do we decided to write down by days what we wanted to see and do. Day 1: Arrived at the apartment, went to brunch, came back for a nap, took our first subway ride to Times Square to soak in all the bright lights. Then we wandered down a street to get dinner in our first Irish Pub for the week! Day 2: Started out with some coffee, then it was off to the Brooklyn Bridge we went. Walked across the Brooklyn Bridge and then went to the park below. Followed…

Day 1: LA/San Diego

Originally posted on Trekking Together:
Tom and I arrived onto American soil (or tarmac) late on Wednesday the 22nd of July, and we were eager to start our Trek America adventure the following morning. We were up bright and early on the Thursday, ready to meet our trek group at 7:30am. I was a little bit apprehensive about meeting everyone at first – I’d read blog posts about Trek America before coming and some mentioned that one awkward person on the trek who hogged all the wifi and charger points, and who didn’t pull their weight in camp. But I soon saw I had nothing to worry about, everyone was super friendly, and throughout the trek everybody did their bit in camp whether it was the cooking or cleaning, and there were no arguments over who got to charge their phone on the van! After a slight delay, because our trek leader got caught in LA traffic, we were on the road to San Diego! It was about a two to three hour drive, and even though…
