Here’s a shocker for my fellow British people – did you know it’s pronounced New Or-linz? Apparently, it’s only British people and those who are wrong who pronounce it New Or-leans! (No idea why us British get lenience here but I won’t complain!) On our second day in New Orleans, we headed back to the… Continue reading A Day of Touring the Living and the Dead: New Orleans Part Two
The first full day of travel in America took me to one of the top spots of my bucket list. The home of jazz and superstition, New Orleans. I’ve wanted to go to this city for many years. Much of my novel writings have a heavy influence in the magical world of voodoo, witchcraft, vampires,… Continue reading Voodoo, Beignets, and Steamboats: New Orleans Part One

Eleven months ago, I started my annual application to Americamp with the assumption I would probably once again not submit. For five years I’ve been dreaming of working on a summer camp with kids in America, yet every year I’ve been too scared to actually press the submission button. This year, however, something was different;… Continue reading Saying Goodbye To Camp
It's been a while and now I don't know where to begin. I knew I wanted to keep you all updated on this journey as much as humanly possible, but it's been over a month now since I touched down into this crazy new world and I feel as though I've been non-stop moving ever… Continue reading The First Few Days…
The panic set in yesterday. "So much to do, so little time" is a phrase that suddenly became a reality for me. Don't get me wrong, I think I can do it, it's just a lot to process that I'm about to go away and not know when I'm coming back. I was saying to… Continue reading 2 Weeks To Go! | My One-Way Adventure!
It still doesn't feel real. Despite having my visa's sorted, my luggage bought, my packing list written and slowly starting to take place, it still doesn't feel like I'm about to leave England. I suppose it was the same when I was going to Winchester for University; not till I was placing my boxes in… Continue reading 3 Weeks To Go! |My One-Way Adventure!
Hey everyone! I hope you all had a good weekend? I have to say, as much as I love writing, it's been super nice having a couple of days to do something else for a change after completing the 31 Days of Blogging Challenge over January! I've spent the weekend doing a bit of organisation… Continue reading Denmark and Sweden Photos!
While I was in Denmark, one of the girls I met told me that every time she goes somewhere new, she sends herself a postcard. I admit that I laughed at the idea at first, I thought it was just a cheesy way of giving yourself mail. She explained that sometimes when she… Continue reading Sending Yourself A Postcard: 22/31 Days of Blogging Challenge
Unfortunately, this is not one of those magical #plACed posts, but it most definitely is a post full of #FreeBiscuits and fun! Today I headed up to Central London to go to the Americamp fair. I had done a bit of research into the camps but honestly, I was mostly winging it because I was nervous… Continue reading Americamp Fair: 19/31 Days of Blogging Challenge
