The morning dawned on our first full day in Disneyland Paris, bringing with it a new pair of vlogs! We had a bit of a slow start, but that did leave lots of time for the buffet breakfast in our hotel. I was pleasantly surprised, as this ‘continental breakfast’ included pastries, cereals, and a full hot food selection. It was the perfect fuel ahead of a busy day in the parks.

Take a look at what we got up to in the morning:

A highlight was definitely getting to meet two of my favourite characters; Winnie the Pooh and Tigger. It was almost worth the trip for those hugs alone!

We got to explore the Studios park this morning and I enjoyed getting to know the area. The Pixar area is so well themed, but I think I like the Ratatouille area even more. It’s beautifully themed and is home to the cutest ride ever. Who doesn’t want to sit on the back of a rat and go for a tour around Paris?

In the afternoon, we watched the parade again and this was my favourite viewing of the whole trip. All the characters were waving right at me – and I somehow managed to make Donald swoon. Adorable.

Later, we went to get some fancy cocktails in the Disneyland Hotel. These were very pricey, but quite strong, as you can probably tell from all the giggling that went on in the evening. I definitely recommend a trip to the Fantasia Cafe as the atmosphere is so calming after a busy day of rushing around with the crowds.

Have you been to a Disney Park? Which character would you most like to meet? 

 

Whenever I go on holiday, I tend to keep every ticket, scrap of paper, and memento that I can find. Rather than taking pride of place back home, they tend to stay in a pile in a drawer somewhere, to be pulled out every few months and looked through.

I decided that this wasn’t good enough, especially when I had so many maps, stickers, and memories saved from my trip to Florida in October 2016. The mass of paper was being ignored and was taking up a lot of room in my drawer. I decided to fix two problems in one and made the most of these mementos by displaying them permanently in my room.

Here’s how I did it.

I went on an adventure at the weekend. It was technically a work trip, as I had to write an article for one of my magazines we create, but it was a lot of fun. I got to stay in a lovely country hotel, eat incredibly fancy food, and have a spa day. As far as weekends go, it was pretty great.

I vlogged the whole trip especially for you, so put the kettle on, sit down, and have a watch. Then come back and read my review of the trip. Enjoy!

One week down, 51 to go! How has 2017 been treating you so far? I’ve an all-over-the-place week, but there are definitely some highlights to share.

You may have seen my horrified tweets about the fact that I’d managed to bring my dad’s laptop back to London after Christmas instead of my own. They’re both the same model in the exact same shade, so it’s an easier mistake to make than you might think. Long story short, mum decided to come to visit me in London on Friday to do the great laptop exchange of 2017. I showed her around a bit while she was here.

I also got back into reading this week. Read on and all shall be revealed.

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.
