10 Things to do in San Francisco in A Weekend (For First Time Visitors)

In June of 2015, I embarked on my first solo adventure. Although technically I wouldn’t be traveling alone, I still survived a 15 hour flight from Adelaide to Los Angeles on my own. After spending most of my life dreaming about visiting New York City, a couple of years ago I decided to do something about it. I found the perfect Contiki tour that would not only take me to New York City, I would also be able to finally visit San Francisco, too. I only knew a little bit about the things to do in San Francisco, but thankfully we already had a rough itinerary planned for us. There’s only one thing that I was certain about at the time: I was very, very excited but at the same time, extremely I think I’m gonna vomit nervous. Whether you’re visiting San Francisco for just one day, or an entire week, there are lots of things…

11 Tips for New Travel Bloggers

Blogging is a very competitive industry. A lot of people don’t consider this when starting a blog that they intend to monetise, but soon come to realise that it can be a rough gig!
