If you are going on a business trip or romantic vacation, where you will stay for at least 3 days, it is quite important to choose a hotel where you will feel comfortable. Trust me, I had my share of failures, and there is nothing more unpleasant than ending up in a smoking room or sharing the bathroom, if you are not prepared for that kind of adventures. Being a “booking genius” takes a lot of experience and if you read this chapter carefully, you will see that choosing the right hotel can be quite a challenge. After you set the destination, I suggest you follow these simple steps for choosing the right hotel or a place to stay: What […]
My moto is: “You only have one life. Don’t waste it by doing things you don’t like.” Actually this is one of my mottos, but for my upside down chapter this one will do just fine. And this is what I am trying to show with my hand stand photos in the end of each chapter. “You are crazy.” I hear this almost every day, either from my friends, my boyfriend, my parents or sometimes even at work. (I don’t even count those who talk behind my back.) I wouldn’t put it exactly this way, but I know I am a little bit unconventional. Unlike most of the people I know, I am usually very straightforward and say whatever is […]
CHIHUAHUA LOVE It is very simple. I love dogs and I like people who love dogs. So I have dedicated a part of my blog to our furry friends who bring love and joy into our lives. And since I own a Chihuahua, I will try to break some stereotypes about this world’s smallest dog breed. If you love to travel and love dogs, then you are definitely in the right place. ABOUT SKY Some of my reviews also include pet-friendly advice, so it’s kind of logical to introduce my furry sweetheart. Sky is a 4 year old longhair Chihuahua and she lights up and brightens my days. She is one of the reasons I miss my home so much when […]
Tips for consuming my travel blog Here is a bit more information about my travel habits so that you know what to expect from my travel blog: My blog is not in any way influenced by a third party so my reviews and recommendations are based exclusively on my own EXPERIENCE. Although my income is above average (I don’t have kids and my dog doesn’t eat much), I am always RATIONAL WITH SPENDING my money – whether it is for business or pleasure. That doesn’t mean I am on a low budget: I usually pick 3 – 4 star hotels, I always fly in economy class, I use Uber when possible and I own quite a few loyalty cards from […]
Eye catching towers in lively blue and red colors drove my attention to this charming castle during my first visit to Vegas so I thought it would be romantic to book my own private chamber at Excalibur Hotel Casino this time. Plus, to be completely honest, I wanted to stay as close to Mandalay Bay convention center as possible, since I was attending the Supply Side West trade show there. Their weekly rate is quite affordable, however keep in mind the extra 29$ per night “resort fee” which will be added to your final receipt. The fee is common for all Vegas hotels and even for some motels. It includes Wi-Fi, fitness access and some other things not worth mentioning. But […]
If Paris is the city of lights, New York the Big Apple and Dubai the city of gold … well, Vegas is all in one. From Ancient Rome and Egypt Pyramids, through the magic of fairytales and science fiction, all the way to Eiffel tower, Brooklyn Bridge and London Eye: Vegas has it all. And honestly, they are doing a pretty good job there in the middle of the desert. I have been in Las Vegas twice: the first time just for two days, on our way from Los Angeles to San Francisco (yes, we made a “small” detour on our road trip), and the second time on business, when I visited Supply Side West trade show in November 2015. […]
After the destination for our short winter escape was set, I searched for the options which could offer us the best combination of stunning beaches, all-inclusive options and hydroplane transport to the island. For a reasonable price, if that word is even allowed when travelling to Maldives. I hesitated between the Sun Island, Barefoot Eco Hotel and Adaaran Select Meedhupparu. With no doubt in my mind I can say that I made the best possible choice.
I have stayed in this 4 star hotel for 2 times, so you could say I know a thing or two about their services and accommodation. First of all let me point out that I joined their Rotana Rewards program during my first stay, so I probably got more “royal” treatment with my second visit.
