5 Comments 17 September 2013

The sweetest tour in London Town: London Cupcake Tours

11 Comments 11 July 2013

Whenever I see a swirl of butter cream pink icing, a glistening beige cake beneath and some sort of delicious art on top staring back at me in a London window, I can’t say no. Hi, my name is Bobbi and I’m a cupcake-aholic. I am obsessed with the recent cupcake fad that has taken [...]

15 Things I Will and Won’t Miss About Living in London

10 Comments 09 July 2013

London seems to be a city that just keeps coming back into my life. I lived here for six months studying abroad in college and returned five months ago for a sort of place to live in limbo as me and my Ric tried to figure out a more permanent living situation. In a nutshell, [...]

5 Favorite James Bond Locations and a 007 Tour of London

0 Comments 02 July 2013

James Bond’s secret activities have taken him all over the world, without a trace, for over 50 years. Whether he be in a suit and bowtie at some swanky European party or in nothing but short shorts coming out of the water in the Caribbean, he always seems to blend in. I enjoy seeing where [...]

Jackson Apartments for working holiday makers

8 Comments 20 June 2013

Moving to Australia with a working holiday visa puts people in a somewhat weird position. You’re visiting places for longer than most travelers, often working and living, so you don’t really want to spend that amount of time in a hostel and it be a senseless waste of money to spend it on a hotel.
