Getting public transport to the Great Wall of China

When visiting Beijing on a budget, there are a number of ways to get to the Great Wall of China, some more popular than the other. Here I share the three main options I found and which worked for me.


New York City – 10/10 City Guide

The big apple. The city that never sleeps. The concrete jungle. New York, New York. My favourite city in the world, and probably one of the hardest to see in just a day. But if you’re pressed for time or just want an easy guide on the best 10 things to see, here I have tried to provide 10 things to see in about 10 hours, so “10/10” that are also 10/10 in value. Get yourself a Metrocard and some walking shoes and get set for a busy day to check out these must-see parts of the city. Although if you have the time, stay as long as you possibly can!

Top 5 places to view the Golden Gate Bridge

It’s the most iconic thing to see in San Fransisco, and for a reason. The Golden Gate Bridge is simply breathtaking and something I spent almost a full day staring at, riding on and searching near and far to find the best viewpoint. You can see the Bridge from many places across San Fransisco, but to save you running around the whole city, I thought I would share my favorite spots with you.

Chicago, Illinois

On December 16th I left my college behind and ventured on to ‘the windy city’. I’m going to be honest, I didn’t know much about Chicago, just that it was the third largest city in the US and that the famous ‘bean’ was there. But sometimes going to a place with little or no expectations means you enjoy it just that bit more. Filled with a lot of gangster history, some of the first skyscrapers in the world and a love for jazz music, this city has something for everyone. I loved exploring this city and all it has to offer.
