Expensive "Hotels & Accommodations" in Edinburgh, Scotland, UK
My first impression during my research of hotels in Edinburgh was directly: what a pricey city for accommodation, this is not a city for budget travellers because hotels are expensive. I've done a long search before I decided to book this hotel. There are dozen of hostels and guesthouses in Edinburgh but we're not really interested to this kind of accommodation, we're middle age and we found to…

Cheap "Sights & Attractions" in San Pedro, California, USA
The Los Angeles Harbor (San Pedro Harbor; Angel's Gate) lighthouse in San Pedro is located at the end of the San Pedro Harbor breakwater about 1/2 mile east of Point Fermin. So in order to see this lighthouse you have to take a boat. I was able to see the lighthouse from a Harbor Tour and also as our cruise ship left the harbor. You could also see the lighthouse from a ferry to Santa Catalina as…

Average priced "Sights & Attractions" in Unity, Maine, USA
In my mind this is the quintessential Maine country fair because participants represent the rugged individualism the state is known for. A telling clue is sponsorship by MOFGA: Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association. You cannot get crunchier than these folks and rest assured your visit will leave no hint of a carbon footprint. The only downside is the huge crowd drawn by the event. …

Average priced "Sights & Attractions" in Salem, New Hampshire, USA
For those who have never heard of this place, it is a historical and archeological site consisting of a curious collection of stone configurations clearly made by people. Who built it is not really known, whether by a Native American culture or by ancient Europeans, the later being a theory more controversial as it would put Europeans far in advance of Columbus. There are some fire pits that have …

Average priced "Hostels" in Bath, England, UK
The scariest part about this is, I'd actually stayed in this very same hostel 12 years ago but apparently it was so bad I'd wiped it away from my memory. Having spent 4 nights here, I now know why... I've never been a fan of hostels that also have a full service bar/restaurant in the ground floor because it usually means 2 things: so many locals frequent the place that it gets crowded, noisy an…

Free! "Sights & Attractions" in Columbus, New Mexico, USA
I had been to the museum located in the old railroad depot, in Columbus, New Mexico on several occasions. Charlie, however, has never been here; so I wanted to stop here and show him the museum and the history of the town. The Columbus Historical Society Museum has three rooms filled with memorabilia associated with General Pershing and the raid conducted by soldiers belonging to Pancho Villa on…

Expensive "Hotels & Accommodations" in Tavistock, England, UK
I had a little job to do in Tavistock, which required an overnight stay and ended up at the Queens Head. This was formerly Browns Hotel, where I'd enjoyed several excellent lunches in the past, and had recently been taken over by the J D Wetherspoon pub company. Wetherspoon's is a large, highly successful business with over 1,000 pubs around the UK and Ireland. The company specialises in taking…

Expensive "Hotels & Accommodations" in Singapore, Singapore
I stayed in this Hotel because the rest were fully booked due to a big conference that was held during the time of my stay. For this reason the price for their rooms also went up. I got their standard room which was just renovated a month before. For the price that I paid (average SGD 450), it was really not worth it. Here are some of the flaws, particularly for a person who's traveling on bus…

Free! "Sights & Attractions" in Ipswich, England, UK
By walking west along Falcon Street, and then north along Queen Street, you reach Giles Circus, where several roads meet. The centre of this open space contains a comical statue dedicated to the memory of the cartoonist ‘Giles’. It depicts ‘Grandma’, one of the cartoonist’s characters, with her handbag. She is looking up towards the newspaper office where Ronald “Carl” Giles (1916-19…

Cheap "Hotels & Accommodations" in Inglewood, California, USA
Backpackers Paradise Hostel is the first time I have ever tried to stay at a hostel. So, take this review with this in mind for the experienced hostel traveler. I booked a great deal for $26 per night at this location only to find out this is the rate for 18-30 year olds. I had to pay an extra $29 to the hotel upon arrival to stay in a shared room with females above 30 years of age. It was…
