How Important Is The Accommodation For Your Vacation?

You might be forgiven for thinking that there are two different kinds of vacationers. There are those that consider themselves travelers. They can spend months at a time trying to fulfill their wanderlust. And there are those that consider themselves holidaymakers, keen to escape their mundane lives. They’re looking for something indulgent, exciting, relaxing, and different for a week. But it’s not just the duration of time away from home that identifies the kind of vacationer you might be. For some, the experiences and the exotic far outweigh any need for comfortable beds and accommodation. They want to meet people from other cultures. They want to experience the foods, the smells, the weather, and even the landscapes. Where they rest their heads at night is secondary to this. They might choose to camp in a tent, or spend the night at a kind stranger’s family home. It’s about immersing themselves into a culture they haven’t discovered yet. Others may be looking for something they can’t get at home. They want opulence, luxury, incredible weather, five-star …

Day 7: Walk this Way

On Thursday I suggested we go over to La Isla Beach Club for cocktails and to swim at their pool, but when we go there, they told us the pool was already closed for the season. So we continued walking…We also passed by Guaba Beach Bar & Club which is actually the #13 club in the world. I’ve been wanting to go here ever since I’ve arrived in Cyprus, but never found anyone that wanted to come along. We ended up walking all the way to the Four Seasons Hotel and ended staying at that beach for our swim session. Then later continued walking even further while taking photos along the beach. We took the bus back to the apartment and then got ready for the evening. VIDEO: Four Seasons Hotel Beach Mini Vlog Previous Posts: Day 1 – Night 1 w/ Miss Anna R.

Day 6: To the Sea

After our morning breakfast and coffee, we went down to the beach below the apartment and along the coast walked over to the private beach of the Londa Beach Hotel. The beach was very small but very private and pretty. We totally loved the wooden dock in front of the hotel. After the beach we went to the apt to shower and change and then took the bus all the way to Puesta where we had lunch with the Mediterranean views. I don’t even remember what we did on Wednesday night but I think we went back to Apollonia hotel that evening again. Previous Posts: Day 1 – Night 1 w/ Miss Anna R.

Day 5: Birthday

I had breakfast at the apartment and Annie had breakfast at this little bistro by our apartment. Then we headed to the beach. Since we had a lunch reservation, we didn’t want to go too far from the apartment, so we headed in the opposite direction this time and found a little private beach close to the apartment. Of all the days, it just so happened to be cloudy on Annie’s birthday. We went for a swim anyways, and took our usual bikini selfie. It was only cloudy for an hour or two and then the sky cleared up perfectly. After the beach, we went back to the apt to get ready for Annie’s birthday lunch and my mum was joining us girls for that too. We had lunch at Akakiko which serves delicious Asian dishes.

Later we went for a little walk …

Cool Hotels: Moxy at Milan Malpensa Airport

Back in March when I was travelling to Portugal, Easyjet suggested I reschedule my flight from Milan to Lisbon as I had about an hour at the airport and they thought I wouldn’t make it even with my carry on. Just to be safe, I picked another flight that was scheduled for the next day and then ended up having a layover at Milan Malpensa. I looked at the airport hotels and via booking.com and booked 1 night at Moxy which was right outside the airport across the street. This little boutique hotel is super fun and hip. Every night they have a special thing going on at the reception bar. During the evening I was there, they had Tonight you are the Barman night, so you could make your own drinks. The very first thing you will notice as you step inside Moxy is the smell. The smell is amazing! The revolving door must have a motion sensor that mists out the scent as you step inside. If you do decide to stay up a little later to socialize in the lobby, …
