Thoughts about going to India from the bus to the airport

I’m writing this post on the bus to the airport, but it hasn’t quite sunk in yet that I’m going on holiday. I’m not quite sure at what point it will – the whole lead up to this current trip hasn’t quite been the way it would usually be when planning a long haul trip. For the last week I’ve had people asking me if I’m excited, and the honest answer has been that I haven’t really been sure. I feel like I ought to be, and I have had moments of looking forward to it, but for someone who is usually a bit like Tigger before going away, I’ve not really been the same about heading to India.

Visiting Niagara Falls

Often classed as one of the seven wonders of the natural world, Niagara Falls is a pretty impressive place to visit. Staying just a half hour drive away in Buffalo, we would have been mad not to go and see them during our trip to the USA.

A complete guide to visiting Buffalo, New York

When you tell someone you’re visiting the USA for the first time they invariably get a little bit excited.

From colleagues at work to the passport officer at the US border, everyone wanted to know why we had chosen Buffalo to spend a full week of our fortnight trip. Contrary to what people thought, we hadn’t got it confused with somewhere else and we weren’t deliberately heading off the beaten track. Buffalo is simply the home of my best friend, and seeing Sophie was the entire purpose of our trip to the USA.

First Timer’s Guide to New York City

New York is one of those places that pretty much everyone I’ve met wants to visit at some point. It’s a place that seems reserved for special birthdays, honeymoons, proposals and other significant milestones. I’ll be honest, I’d never actually been that bothered about going. It’s just a city, and I much prefer the countryside to cities. However, that was until we were going somewhere within touching distance and suddenly it seemed like too good an opportunity to miss. All too soon I was getting very excited about heading to New York for the first time, and when I was there it didn’t disappoint. It can be difficult to know what to expect or where to begin with planning, so here are my tips to any other first-timer’s out there.
