After the magic of Disney, we didn’t think we could top it. But Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure are two parks not to be missed if you’re travelling to Orlando. Connected by the Hogwarts Express, (and the Citywalk) these two huge parks are packed full of intense thrill rides and fun stuff to see. Continue reading
After a two month hiatus, I think a post all about my holiday will be a welcome instalment on the Positiff Blog! The first part of my Florida posts is a guide to Disney. It was as magical as people say, even for two 25 year olds! However, the sheer size of the parks, number of rides, attractions and places to eat, as well as planning your transport can be a bit of a headache, so hopefully this guide will give you an idea of what a holiday to the ‘most magical place on earth’ will mean.
A lot can be said for the humble UK break. It was all I ever knew growing up. My Mum and Dad would pack us into the car, up to our eyeballs in suitcases and pillows, the windbreak and bucket and spades crammed between us, for the 5 hour drive down to Cornwall nearly every year until we were 16 – and we loved it.

Pura Vida you lovely lot! Something I’ve been hashtagging the sh*t out of these past two weeks whilst living it up in Costa Rica with my best friend Sally. It means ‘pure life’ or ‘simple life’ but is ultimately a way of life. The Costa Rican culture and people had us enthralled from the start, and visiting a new place never fails to get me excited and appreciating things outside my little bubble. I’ve put together a post about where we went and some tips for if you go yourself! Why not go and watch the video I created over on my YouTube channel HERE – and I’ll love you forever if you subscribe whilst you’re there 😊
With only 6 days until me and Sally jet off to Costa Rica for 2 weeks of sun, sea and plenty of exploring, I wanted to put together my tips for travelling long haul – a kind of tick list I’ve gone through prior to getting on that plane.
