Travel Planning Tips

In less than a week’s time I will be heading to the USA for 3 weeks of travelling, so I thought I would share some of the things I’ve learnt during the planning, booking and preparation stages. I’m by no means an experienced traveller; I’ve booked a few smaller holidays in the past, but this is the first time I’ve booked something on this scale (and this is still quite a small scale).

Now Playing/ Wishlist - June

As you can see, I’ve kept with the Now Playing/ Wishlist title – it’s growing on me…

It really doesn’t feel like a month ago that I was writing my May post though, time has gone so quickly over the past four weeks. I’ve finished season one of Once Upon a Time, been to Dot to Dot festival, visited a new city for the first time and completed my degree!

As I’ve been super busy, I haven’t had huge amounts of time to watch new shows and discover new music, but here are a few things I’m enjoying or hoping to catch over the next month.

Day Trip to Cambridge

The day after I finished my degree I joined some of my friends on a spontaneous trip to Cambridge. One of my friends lives about a half an hour from the Cambridge itself, so we drove into the centre to have a look around.

I’d never been to Cambridge, so it was really nice to explore somewhere new. Luckily the weather was amazing, so we could stroll around in the sunshine.

Cambridge was kind of exactly how I imagined it would be: beautiful buildings, cobbled streets, lots of nice shops and restaurants, and so many bikes.

Review: House of Cards Season One

*WARNING: Only contains very, very minor spoilers (from the first episode)*

One of the reasons I downloaded Netflix in the first place was because I wanted to watch House of Cards. My brother had been telling me for months that I needed to watch the show, and so as soon as I had finished Gossip Girl, I knew that House of Cards had to come next.

House of Cards is an American political drama, set mostly in the White House, and is released exclusively on Netflix. I didn’t actually realise until I did a little research before starting this post (my bad), but the show is based on a BBC mini-series from the 1990s, which was set after Margaret Thatcher’s stint as Prime Minister.

Being a Tourist in Guildford

It wasn't until my Granny came to visit me at uni last week, that I realised how few things I've actually done in the area! This is my third year living in Guildford, and as I’m finishing my degree in less than a week, it was also a good opportunity to tick a few things off my pre-graduation bucket list.
