 We visited Paris, France for Seth's 19th birthday. We spend two nights at the Generator Hostel. We just love these hostels. Simon and I decided to take advantage of the VIP airport lounges and got very, very drunk. I am surprised they let us on the plane. Seth managed to get us to the hostel where at this point we had sobered up and headed straight to Hard Rock Cafe. Then to check out the Eiffel Tower. It looked very impressive at night when it was lit up. But there are so many 'lucky lucky men' that try and sell you everything from overpriced wine or mini souvenirs, so that did kind of ruin the atmosphere. 

The next day was full of sight seeing. We went to the Louvre museum and saw the Mona Lisa, back to the Eiffel tower to see it in day light, the Notre Dame. Everything you would expect to visit we saw! It was a very busy day. Went back to the Eiffel tower again, this time we went up it so se the view from the top. It was great and I would recommend doing so. 

The next morning we went for the most amazing breakfast at Laudree. I would fly back to Paris just to eat here as it was so delicious.

Camp Paivika, California

Camp Paivika was an experience I won't ever forget. It has been the more rewarding job I have had, and I hope that I will return here one day to meet the staff and my campers again. 

I feel so blessed that I was able to spend the summer living in the San Bernardino mountains at camp. It's a perfect location with great views and inspirational people. Camp felt like a family as you lived and worked so closely with everyone and on breaks you would spend your time each other going on adventures such as travelling to Las Vegas and San Diego and relaxing on the beaches. 

It was great meeting so many new people and getting to know your campers. I had two 1-1's over the summer, and it was so rewarding as you got to know them so well over the five nights. Leaving day was always sad. The night before campers left there would be a closing campfire where we sang songs and watched pictures of the campers time at camp. Then it would end with the hugging song, so everyone got to say their goodbyes. Once everyone was settled and in bed we the staff would go around all the cabins and sing. I still listen to 'lean on me' now when I miss camp! 

Love you all, and I hope we get to meet again! xxx

San Francisco

San Francisco was an amazing city; it was as it I was living in the future. People riding on Segways and hover boards and playing with drones. My hostel was in Fort Mason, and it was a great location. Just a short walk to fisherman wharf and the piers. I stayed here for five nights, so this was an extended visit! As there is so much to do in this city the time flew by, and it was soon time for me to fly back to LAX to start my job at the camp for the summer.

The weather was very temperamental, I was constantly adding and removing layers!

Germany Road trip 2015

For my brothers 18th birthday we went on a road trip around Germany. It was a fast-paced few days, as soon as we landed in Stuttgart then drove straight to Nuremberg. Driving was terrifying, being on the opposite side of the road. I was a nervous wreck, and I was just a passenger! 804 miles completed in just four days, huge thanks to Simon for driving us! This was our first time hiring a car abroad. It did take us a while to work out how to get it going, and the sat nav was in German so it was a nightmare navigating around!


We arrived late and wondered around the town; it was pretty quiet. We had a quiet drink in a bar then went to bed. The next day we checked out the Nuremberg rally grounds.


It was raining when we arrived, but that didn't stop us. We went to try out some German food and some beers. Made a few American friends on the evening and had a great night out with them!


We stayed in a Generator Hostel in Berlin; it was the best hostel we had stayed in during this trip. We also had some more time to relax as we spend two nights here. We visited all the major sights; including Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag Building! The Berlin wall was great to see. It was such a great city and one I would love to come back to visit as there was so much to see and take in.
