To my defence… this wasn’t on the itinerary!** Whilst driving around the Hollywood hills, we spotted some people on a hill in the distance and with one click on the
Seeing the Hollywood sights: My top 5 things to do!
Hollywood walk of Fame Yes, LA turned me into a proper tourist, but this is surely a must-see when holidaying in Hollywood! Jet lag meant we were up ridiculously early, so we headed straight for the Boulevard at 7AM. The good thing about our early start was that the street was so quiet; we got
Beautiful Dorset: Exploring West Lulworth!

Ubud is a very unique and cultural part of Bali; a quirky town full of shops, restaurants and spa’s, surrounded by beautiful rice fields. It’s located in the centre of Bali and takes about an hour and a half from Denpasar airport, but is definitely worth a visit. Some of the people we’ve met around
Campuhan Ridge walk, Ubud
Before heading to Ubud, we had a look on tripadvisor to see if there were any activities that we may have missed out on two years ago. We didn’t want to do any long excursions or anything too expensive, so were pleased when we read about the Campuhan ridge walk. Finding and walking the Campuhan
