The first thing that springs to mind when I think of Orlando is Disney World. But what about all the other theme parks in Orlando? Its famous attractions draw millions of tourists every year, making it one of the most visited cities in America. Various Orlando tickets can get you discounts for multiple attractions and [...]
Every time I told a New Yorker that I was going to visit the Statue of Liberty, they admitted they had never actually taken the ferry to Liberty Island. In fact I didn’t meet a single New Yorker who had set foot on the island. I found this quite curious since it’s one of the [...]

Apple’s latest retail store is not only one of its largest at 23,000 square feet, it also has the added WOW factor of being located inside one of New York’s most famous landmarks. [...]
Once upon a time I might have said a carriage ride was corny, touristy and overpriced. But the more I travel, the more I realize that being touristy can be really really fun.

Who is this Pommie chick?
I'm a British girl from Manchester and I have been traveling solo since 2008. After graduating from university I decided there was more to life than the hours between 9 and 5, so I packed my journalism degree into my suitcase to travel the world and work remotely. I hope to inspire you to be your own boss, live life and travel the world.
