San Francisco was the first destination of my big Summer 2015 west-coast USA holiday. I booked up well in advance to spend a week staying with one of my best friends, Ali, who moved to California for a new job last year. Ali is a doctoral researcher at UC Berkeley and lives in the heart of city, and it was perfect to have one of my closest friends as the tour guide for my trip.
At the age of 31 I didn’t think I’d be saying I’d never been to Devon before. A trip to Kent in February and a country walk past a huge windmill that had been converted into an AirBnB inspired me to get involved in the latest trend of staying in quirky remote countryside accommodation. This year’s Easter weekend felt like the perfect time to get away from the city and have a proper staycation.
Finally I’ve got round to writing about our week in paradise! Sorry for the delay, but this one will be worth waiting for. After a recommendation from friends and struggling to find a perfect summer holiday destination, Nick and I decided to go to Paxos, Greece.
Dubai has never had much appeal to me as a holiday destination but when a good friend moved there in 2014 and I began to sample a bit of her lifestyle on social media, my opinion changed pretty quickly; it looked like a lot of fun.
Looking for an excuse for a Spring getaway, I booked a weekend away with my good friends from school to visit Dubai for 3 nights in early March.
