Infante Sagres – That Time I Splurged on a Five-Star Hotel!

Or – Is a Five star hotel THAT much better than a four-star hotel? When preparing for my trip last year (2019) I booked almost all my hotel stays in advance (and one AirBnb stay). Bar a few nights in Tajikistan, I was booked for the rest of the nights which meant I knew where …

Review – A Really Positive Air BnB Experience! [Lisbon]

Howdy all, and today I’m going to review our stay in Lisbon, Portugal last year.

Accommodation Guide – Victoria Hotel, Jerusalem

Today I’m talking about the hotel I stayed when I visited Jerusalem last year, and buckle up because what counts as ‘cheap’ in Jerusalem will stretch most people’s definition of the word. They told me Jerusalem was quite expensive, but honestly I wasn’t really prepared for it when I arrived. The good news for me …
