Well, I’ve been a busy bee.
I’ve been looking into accommodation for #tbt (which I’m stealing for ‘The Big Trip’), and what a fun exercise in the internet this has been.
Anyway, I was going round and round in circles, just trying to find a place to sleep in these cities I’ve never been to. What if they’re gross? What if they have bed bugs? What if it’s like staying in Penrith?
Trip advisor has not been my friend. I’ve spent more time on that website than I care to think about in the last few weeks.
I’ve had post-booking regret. I’ve learnt the currency conversion lesson the hard way. I’ve learnt the word for toilet in Spanish (Indoro!)
But most importantly, I did think it was worth sharing a few highlights with you, if you care to see them.
1. Women Bed.
2. Another Paris Hostel.
3. The Generator Hostel, Paris.
4. My hotel, Amsterdam.
5. Airbnb, London.
6. Where I decided to stay (The Mandarin).
8. And… Conscious Hotel.
Wish me the best, and I’ll do the same for you next time you’re booking beds in foreign countries.
(Should I take my own pillowcases?)
