New York Diaries: Day 6

Departure day definitely crept up on us quickly. Our day started with us frantically packing our bags to make sure we checked out in time because as you can grasp from this trip, we weren’t the best with our time management. Once we had checked out, we only had a few hours to explore and get…

New York Diaries: Day 5

Today marks our last full day in New York City. We started our day a little earlier you’d be glad to know. It was due to snow a little last night so we jumped out of bed to see if it had, but it wasn’t cold enough for it to settle, so that was little…

New York Diaries: Day 4

As much as I would love to say that we woke up early and made the most of our morning, in reality, our late night got the best of us, and we slept through our alarm. So with our little set back we really wanted to make the most out of our day. We decided…

Bali Travel Diaries – Ubud

My travels around South East Asia and Indonesia are starting to come to an end. Our final destination was the tranquil town of Ubud. It was such a nice change coming back from such a vibrant and busy island. It was as if we were on a little retreat, here to just relax, do some…

New York Diaries: Day 3

We had a little lie in today after our big day yesterday. Once we were all ready to go, we headed to the New York Public Library, to recreate a photo my Mum had taken of her in 1986. She was also 20 when she visited New York, so it was a really special moment…

New York Diaries: Day 2

This day started with breakfast at The Speedy Cafe on 1271 Broadway, opposite the Empire State Building. We grabbed a few smoothies (so yummy) and had a stack of pancakes with Nutella and banana in them, and a stack with butter and maple syrup. These were absolutely delicious, and writing about them is making me want a…

New York Diaries: Day 1

My day actually started normally at 9am on Sunday. I went about my day, spent the afternoon in the Library, did some work and then proceeded to stay awake until 2am (my flatmates tried to stay up, bless them) but then when that alarm went off, I lugged my fat suitcase across campus and met…

Bali Travel Diaries – The Gili Islands

Now it’s time for possibly the best and most exciting few days I had during my time in Bali. We drove to the west coast of Bali to catch our ferry over the Gili Trawangan, the largest island of the 3, and where everyone goes to first. This ferry ride was about 3 hours long,…

Bali Travel Diaries – Canggu to Lovina

I was really excited for this next part of our trip, on our way to where we would be staying for the next few days, we stopped off at 2 of the most recognised ancient temples in Bali. These temples were breathtaking! One was not on land but, surrounded by a moat of water. So the…

Bali Travel Diaries – Kuta to Canggu

Let’s pick up where we left off, ah yes, hungover on a bus. So, with all of us just wanting to arrive and jump into a cold pool, we headed to the coast and were about to experience the laid-back surfer destination of Canggu. To get here we drove through a few little rice paddies,…
