How to Plan Out NYC in 10 Days

Originally posted on How To Get Things Done in 10 Ways:
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…

The 15 Countries To Visit Sooner Rather Than Later

Traveling is something we all love, obviously if your reading this, and the beauty of adventure for some is finding new and exciting places to visit. Well these next few destinations are growing with popularity more and more every year and you best visit before they’re over run with tourists and that little bit less exciting. Croatia Ok so Croatia is pretty popular already, with places like Dubrovnik and Split some of the most visited places in Europe. I had to add it to the list however, because Croatia is currently using their own currency (Croatian Kuna) meaning it is still relatively cheap compared to other European countries. But it won’t be for long. Croatia joined the European Union in mid-2013 and is set to change their currency to the Euro by no later than 2019 (but they can apply from 2016). So get there quick! Morocco Morocco is growing in popularity year after year, but most seem to just visit the cultural hub of Marrakech and that is all…

The tomb of the unknown soldier

Where to even start with this incredible place? Like really, I don’t think I have ever seen a building as huge with as much detail and thought taken into every millimetre of the perimeter! This building just cannot be misses, while walking around Rome, every point with a view, this was to be seen. I honestly think my house would fit into this building 50 times over! Standing next to it, in all its greatness, was just something in itself. When I was in New York the building were big and tall and wide but this is a different type of building, this was there to be seen, this stood a purpose of holding the body of a soldier that once fought for Italy, although from what I read, no one knows who this unknown soldier actually is. He must have been pretty special to have this as his tomb! From every edge of the building it was clear that it was in a prime location with beautiful views…

Disney World Tips | 5 Favorite Epcot Rides

Originally posted on White Walls + Wanderlust:
As you may or may not know, I have a slight (major) obsession with Disney World. It’s one of my favorite places to visit. Definitely in my top three, for sure. Any time I have a say in where we go for a family vacation, it typically includes a Disney park. For a while now I’ve been wanting to start a blog series where I talk about my favorite and least favorite rides, best places to eat, and more Disney World tips. To start out, here’s a post with a countdown of my opinion on the five best rides at Epcot. Not intentionally, all of my favorite rides are located in Future World which is the first half of the park before you get to the World Showcase. 5! The Sum Of All Thrills This ride is one that for whatever reason, I never hear anything about. It’s in the Innoventions building at Epcot which I guess not many people go in. Or maybe everyone knows about it and I’m just living under a rock. This ride allows you to design…

Impending Hiatus

?? (So that’s not me but I’ve been told I look similar, and that’s definitely a look I’m going to be adopting for the next week)… So very late tonight I leave for Berlin, finally! As I’ve been mentioning repeatedly on here since buying the plane tickets. Shota and I will be in Berlin for a week, with some potential trips to Hamburg, Dresden and Poland. Although I’m going to be pretty busy I’ll try and vlog everything which I’ll assemble the following week when I have access to a computer when I reach home! I’ll be in London for a few days after arriving in the UK, staying with my wonderful friend from Argentina which I’m very excited about, before heading home to Oxford to cuddle my dog and indulge in the familiar scents of home. I’m sure you’ll understand that I’m going to fully embrace this break since I haven’t left Georgia since January so it will be quite emotional for me, but I’ll make it…
