Hever Castle, the Childhood Home of Anne Boleyn

The childhood home of Anne Boleyn, Hever Castle was an easy choice for a day trip from London. It’s a wonderful castle with expansive history and several rooms to explore – not to mention the wonderful gardens and grounds. I was also quite happy to find the town of Hever very small but very charming. It makes a wonderful day trip for everyone.

Exploring London: Things to Do & Travel Guide

London needs no introduction. I’ve now been to this city three times and it was actually my first international destination ever. I have to be honest: when I went for the first two times, I was a little put off since I was expecting something different, maybe something a bit more cohesive or something that felt older. I most recently went back to London in 2022 with the hopes of knowing the city better. Armed with a travel blogger mindset, I made a list and visited a lot of fantastic places.

Since London has so much for tourists to do, … Continue reading

Warner Bros. Studio Tour vs Paramount Studio Tour

I love a good film just as much as the next person. The Big Screen and its secrets are so fascinating to me. When I went to Hollywood, I was determined to learn more about the secrets of Hollywood and see where so many masterpieces were made, and booked two studio tours.

I couldn’t decide on only one so I splurged on two tours. First, I went to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour, visiting the standard studio tour. Then I also went on the Paramount Studio Tour, also opting for their standard studio tour. Which one did I … Continue reading

The great thing about travel is, no matter how much you explore, there’s always going to be more. But at times, finding a place to go next can also be overwhelming! Which is why I asked on Twitter one day,

To my great surprise, over 100 people responded and about 116 countries were mentioned. You can view the full list here. Looking at the results, I was surprised the list didn’t … Continue reading

The Splendor of Newport, RI: Things to Do & Travel Guide

Newport is one of my absolute favourite places in the United States, and it’s also a bit of a hidden gem. Located on an island on the shore of Rhode Island, Newport is a summer town known for its historic gilded-age mansions and historic charm dating to the 17th century. It’s a wonderful destination to put on your USA itinerary, especially if you’re here for the summer.

Newport History

Aquidneck Island, Newport’s location, had been settled on for thousands of years by the Pokanoket tribe. Actually, current downtown Newport had been an important Pokanoket settlement that the European settlers took … Continue reading

Jane Austen’s Bath: 13 Essential Places to See

Jane Austen is almost synonymous with Bath, England. It’s ironic considering that she didn’t even like the city. In once instance, she wrote to her sister Cassandra, “It will be two years tomorrow since we left Bath for Clifton, with what happy feelings of escape.” But it doesn’t matter that places like Chawton and Steventon are places she loved more dearly. Having lived in Bath for several years and using it as a backdrop, and even a secondary character, for many of her novels, Jane Austen’s most associated city is Bath. Fans flock here every year and it can even … Continue reading

London’s Harry Potter Studio Tour

I love Harry Potter. I’ve been a huge fan since childhood, have seen all the movies in theatres (which at this stage is admitting how old I am), and a nice collection of Harry Potter plushies. I even once hosted a Harry Potter-themed Christmas.

But you don’t need me to tell you how much Harry Potter means to millions of people around the globe. I don’t need to convince you to visit London’s Harry Potter Studio Tour. You’re already planning a trip there and screaming “take my money!” to see props, costumes, and behind-the-scenes looks at eight movies that helped … Continue reading
