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 How much of Miami can you see in 48 hours?→
While using your UK issued mobile phone in the USA is easy, it’s not always cheap. If you need to be in contact with home at an affordable rate, it’s worth considering the purchase of a local SIM card.
On my recent visit to the USA, Telaway offered me a solution that allowed me an unlimited phone, text and data allowance for the duration of the trip.
At the time I had no definite plans to visit Florida. It had crossed my mind but to be honest, I wasn’t sure that the bank balance or the full time job would allow it to really happen… thankfully, I was proven wrong.
This evening I was invited to a screening of ‘Last Vegas’, a film starring Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline in a riotous sixty-something comedy bachelor party in Las Vegas. Continue reading ‘Last Vegas’ screening, London→
“New York, New York”, the city that never sleeps and one that I recently visited on an oh-so-spontaneous trip across the Atlantic – oh, and it was also my first solo trip; bring on the pressure!
New York is a city that I was never quite sure about. As a beach and relaxation kind of girl, the idea of the glitz, shopping, glamourous nightlife and more was never something that was at the top of my bucket list. In fact, it always reminded me of London, which may explain why I put off visiting – why go somewhere that was just like home? Continue reading Revelations in “New York, New York”→
So, I finally opened my pack of palm sugar covered banana chips. Yes, you read correctly. Banana chips. But not just any old kind. The ones that I bought whilst travelling in Thailand. Now don’t worry, this isn’t just a post about me and a love for banana chips (well, not completely) but it is about the relevance of food to a country and the travellers within it.
As we had been preparing for our final day in Bangkok, I had been searching for something that I would be allowed to pack in my suitcase to take home. Right now, as I munch through the pack, I am so happy with my decision.
