On short notice, we struggled to find accommodation within our backpacking price range during our visit to Nashville. So, unusually, I’m not going to recommend the place where I stayed in the city. But there are some truly incredible hotel options in and around Nashville, including a boutique hotel on the outskirts of the city, and they’re making me want to book my stay right now.
It takes a while to really connect with some places. While you may have a general good feeling towards a city, it can often take a few days, or even a few separate visits, to really connect with a place. Nashville was not one of those places for me. I fell in love with this rambunctious musical city immediately, and I will forever have fond memories of the time I spent there. If you like live music, a great atmosphere and proper deep south cooking, then this is the city for you.
You already know that I like to travel, but you might not realise that it also fills me with uncertainly. I tend to be quite introverted when meeting new people, and I feel nervous when I’m not 100% sure how to get back to the hostel after a long day of exploring a new city. Despite that, it is my favourite thing to do. To remind myself of why I love it so much, I thought I would gather together some perfect travel quotes and share them with you.
I am lucky enough to work in an office just a stone’s throw from Hyde Park, which is currently being taken over by Christmas. Winter Wonderland descends on the park every year, trampling down the otherwise pristine grass with helter-skelters, rollercoasters, Bavarian bars and food stalls. It’s a completely different experience in the day compared to the evening, so I decided to do both and tell you all about it.
Most emails don’t have the power to make you jump up and down, scream, and cry. Only one made me do all three of those things and I received it two years ago. It told me that I had a summer job in Walt Disney World in Florida, which is a widely regarded as being a bit better than down at the local supermarket. I was exstatic. The recruitment process was fierce, so there was no guarantee I was going to get a place despite my passion for everything Disney. But, over seventeen years after I first waddled down Main Street as a three-year-old, my journey had come full circle and I had become a Cast Member.
I could write endless essays about my experience working for my favourite company, but I’ll restrain myself for your benefit. Instead, here are some of the highlights of my experience.
