I’ve got something a bit different for you guys today! Recently I took the plunge and decided to start opening up my blog to guest posts and bloggers from all around the world. Due to my blog being focussed on travel and lifestyle, there are a huge amount of potential categories which can be featured, while still entertaining my current readers and any future readers! The first instalment of Travel Guest Posts here on Rhiannon Travels, is by the lovely Emily from Fijord (you can check out her blog, here!) Emily’s blog is filled with a wide range of topics, including her series ‘Learning How To’s’, where she writes helpful and unique posts on all things us as adults are required to learn! Read…

Up until October last year, I had spent 24 years of my life living in a somewhat big city. Adelaide, Australia was my home – it still is my home! There isn’t really a whole lot to do if you’re someone who enjoys theme parks and adventurous days out; but it’s comfortable, familiar and will always be the city I’m proud to call home. Towards the end of last year, my partner was offered a temporary Assistant Manager job in Alice Springs. Here is a map of Australia, if you’re unsure where Alice Springs is. If you look at the very centre of my beautiful country, there’s a little red dot. That’s Alice Springs. We are now smack bang in the centre of…

I’ve scoured the web, trying to find Contiki reviews focussed on the USA tours, as opposed to the amazing Europe tours that everybody seems to prefer. Back in June 2015, I did the Best of USA Contiki Tour (you can read all about this tour, by clicking here). It was my first time experiencing solo travel. I had been to the United States before with my family, but I hadn’t yet ventured overseas alone. I spent every day umm’ing and ahh’ing about whether I wanted to take the plunge into solo travel. It proved to be a difficult task, trying to find decent reviews about Contiki Tours that weren’t the hostel staying, day long bus rides tours around Europe. So I thought what better, than…

I bet you’re here because you need a Travel Checklist. Am I right? So you’re leaving the country, ready to head off on an amazing adventure. If you’re anything like me, you would have had your bags packed two weeks ago. You’ve probably been living out of a suitcase weeks earlier than you need to be. But hey, I’m with you on that one. Travelling and seeing the world is an exciting thing. Amongst all the excitement and craziness of packing and making sure you’ve got everything, you’re bound to leave something out. Whether it’s something small like remembering to pack your favourite pair of socks, or something a tad more important like leaving the front door unlocked. I’m here…

Whilst on Contiki, (check out the tour I did – Best of USA – here) our second stop was San Fransisco. Let me just tell you, San Fransisco is a beautiful place. I have always wanted to visit, as I’d always heard such great things about the city. So many of my friends and family members have said they would live there in a heart beat. So not only was I hearing good things, I had always seen such incredible photos from all around the city. Everyone genuinely seems to be so relaxed and happy. No matter which direction you walk down the main street, there are locals and travelers riding bikes, strolling along (seemingly) without a care in the world. I remember I…
