Last year I attended the TBEX travel conference held in Keystone, Colorado. I flew into Denver and had the pleasure of spending two days there before taking part in a road rally up to Keystone. This large, bustling metropolis is known as ‘The Mile-High City’ because it is located at an altitude of 1,600 metres [...]
So you’re traveling to Los Angeles but don’t have two pennies to rub together? Fear not, because you can still see Lalaland on a budget.

For first-time visitors, The Big Apple can be rather overwhelming. On my first visit to to New York City I bought a guidebook and I had no idea in what order to do everything!

Most [...]
Despite having spent 19 days last year in Las Vegas, I never once made it to a show. People always tell me the Cirque du Soleil shows are a must in Vegas, so this year I was determined to see one for myself. My show of choice was Zarkana, one of the newer Cirque Du [...]
Immortalised in many Hollywood films, the American road trip is synonymous with adventure, landscapes and freedom, and in a country as large and varied as the USA it’s no wonder self-drive holidays are a popular choice.

I'm a British girl from Manchester and I have been traveling solo since 2008.
