Animal Kingdom Lodge Review
Read on for my Animal Kingdom Lodge Review. “Oh my god,” I said, sliding the glass door open to yell to my husband. “A giraffe is eating breakfast outside our window!” He raced to the balcony and into the winter Florida sun. “A giraffe is eating breakfast outside our window,”…
Kilimanjaro Club Level Review
Whether you’re interested in staying at Kilimanjaro Club Level at Animal Kingdom Lodge or you’ve already planned a trip to Animal Kingdom Lodge Club Level and want a glimpse of what you’re in for, here is my Kilimanjaro Club Level review.  Staying at Kilimanjaro Club Level – Animal Kingdom Lodge Firstly, to…
My Cookie Dough 3
Read on for a review of My Cookie Dough in London. One of the things I like to eat most, which is probably shared by most of you, is raw cookie dough. There’s something about a cookie-not-cooked-yet that tastes amazing and kind of makes you feel like you’re being a…
Beech Hill Hotel and Spa 4
In a country seemingly full of places that look the same (sometimes I feel like once I’ve seen one English countryside village, I’ve seen them all), the Lake District stands out as one of our favorite places to getaway. It’s a four to five hour drive from London, making it…
Over the years I’ve spent in London, I’ve taken part in quite a few different Christmas traditions. We’ve been to Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland, Christmas at Kew, and generally spent multiple hours fighting our way through horrendous crowds on Oxford Street to see the twinkling lights for about ten seconds…
Le Blaireau Careys Manor Dessert
During our recent stay at Careys Manor (read my review here,) we got to experience a three-course dinner at its on-site French restaurant, Le Blaireau. Access to the restaurant is both from within the hotel, as well as this cute entrance outside for regular dining guests. Hey, sidenote! If you’re traveling…
Careys Manor Sign
Imagine a world where ponies run wild right outside your window, a relaxing spa looks out to grass fields and breakfast can be eaten in your slippers and bathrobe. Now stop imagining, because whatever you’ve come up with in your head is nowhere near as good as the real thing…
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Review 2
If you’ve just come out from under the rock you’ve been hiding under, you might not know that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child tickets are some of the hardest seats to get in London right now (and have been since they were released). If you’ve been paying a modicum…

As the most popular tourist attraction in London, the London Eye is impossible to miss as you’re walking along the Thames. It was originally built in 2000 as the “Millennium Wheel,” though the Millennium is almost 20 years behind us now and it’s still slowly rotating over the river, steady…
Clayton Hotel Belfast Review 30
Overview Situated just off Clopton bridge in Stratford-upon-Avon, the Macdonald Alveston Manor Hotel is a beautiful historic hotel in Warwickshire. We were lucky enough to get to stay in the hotel this past weekend during our visit to Stratford-upon-Avon, and we weren’t disappointed. As a major draw for tourists, Stratford-upon-Avon has…
