Oh, to be a student. Long deadlines, two lectures a week and freedom to plan your own time. I didn’t realise how good I’d got it when I was studying in Sheffield. Now that I’ve entered the world of work, with a 40-hour contract and a 45 minute commute, I dream of those lazy days. To try and relive the glory, I went back to my university city for the weekend with the girls that I lived with for all three of my years in the city. It was fleeting, but we had a lot of fun.
Rather aptly, we spent most of the time in my friend’s bedroom watching TV. Does it get more university-style than that?
When we were convinced to leave the comfort of her house, we headed to some of our favourite haunts.
The day had finally arrived! I really enjoyed our stay at Universal and I was surprised by how much I loved our hotel, Cabana Bay. All good things come to an end, though, and this one led to something even better: Disney World.
After a morning finishing off at Islands of Adventure, we got an Uber over to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and started the second half of the holiday. Watch the vlog and then come back for my top tips and behind-the-scenes.
I love to travel, though funds and home commitments mean that I can’t be jetting around the globe every week. As disappointing as that is, all the time that I spend at home means that I can spend more time dreaming of my many trips abroad in the future. Top of my list is a road trip through Canada, though I don’t think I’ve quite got my head around how expansive the country is and quite how many hours I’ll have to spend in a car!
Today, a cultural hub in Indonesia has caught my eye. It’s not a part of the world that I’ve visited before, but South East Asia is on nearly every bucket list.
Even though I can barely pronounce the name, Yogyakarta definitely looks like it will be worth a visit one day. Here’s what I’d love to see and do when I get there.
I am beyond excited to edit these vlogs. While we were on holiday, it was easy to get into the swing of recording videos but every now and that it did feel like an effort. Now that I’m home, though, I’m so glad I vlogged the whole trip. Being able to look back on those days is invaluable.
Now it’s time to share the first of my holiday videos. As promised, I’ll include some behind-the-scenes info and photos here on my blog. Don’t forget to ask any questions in the comments, too. Enjoy!
Whenever someone asks about my love of Disney World, I reply that I practically grew up in central Florida, visiting every few years since the age of three. In between these magical trips, I had a fair few memorable trips to other parts of the world. While I may no longer be a fan of the traditional beach holiday, I used to love to spend the day making mischief on a beach somewhere. Running up and down, begging my dad to dig a big hole in the sand for no reason, and jumping in and out of an inflatable tyre were all staples of my childhood.
In October, I made more memories to last a lifetime in Disney World with my sister. Also that month, Harry at Instant Print asked me to write a blog post about my postcard-perfect memories of my travels. They also send this bundle of goodies, which came in very useful in Florida.
Without further ado, here are my snapshots of my favourite travel memories so far.
