Last weekend my boyfriend and I were able to spend a much longed for weekend in Edinburgh, capital city of Scotland.
We were pleased to both have a chance to stay with Ibis hotel, namely the Ibis Edinburgh Centre South Bridge, a recently opened (January 2014) hotel with 259 rooms that promised to provide us with a central location within a short distance of the main attractions in the city. With this in mind, we knew that we’d have a great chance to really maximise our exploration of the city from a local base.
We travelled from London to Edinburgh via MegaBus and arrived in the city around 7.30am – much earlier than the anticipated check in time at the hotel. We planned to take on our first activity by hiking up to Arthur’s Seat, so simply wanted to drop our bags off whilst we passed the time until check in. Continue reading
As part of my visit to Florida, I really wanted a chance to get out onto the water and experience some fun in the sun. After researching a few options, I contacted Tropical Sailing as they offered a ‘Sail and Splash’ package in Fort Lauderdale that sounded ideal; an afternoon at sea in the Florida heat on board a spacious 50-foot long catamaran before coming to a stop to enjoy the “Aquatic Playground”.

I recently wrote an article for Attraction Tix that’s now featured on their blog. It’s a review of Miami’s Hop-on, Hop-off tour bus that serves visitors to the city in Florida seven days a week.
Here’s a snippet of the article:
I recently spent two days exploring the city of Miami using the Miami Hop-On Hop-Off Bus tour. This bus company provides services 7 days a week to take visitors around Miami on two different routes; the city and the beach!
The tour was an extensive hop on, hop off tour which gives you the chance to opt for 24 or 48 hours of sightseeing in the city.
Whether you choose the city or beach route, each tour lasts for 90 minutes in total, giving you plenty of time to take in the views and stop off at as many points as you like, as many times as you like within the validity of your ticket. There is also the option to add a 90-minute boat ride to the homes of the rich and famous, around areas like Fisher Island and Star Island. Continue reading
