Very cheap "Sights & Attractions" in Qala, Malta
Just returned from a week long holiday on Gozo and the highlight of my trip has to be the horse riding experience with Gozo Stables. From my initial enquiry (complete novice, have never been on a horse apart from a pony ride as a child) prior to flying out to booking my horse ride, communication from Joe was swift, detailed and extremely helpful. On the morning of the ride I was kindly picked u…

Expensive "Sights & Attractions" in Monterey, California, USA
Yes. I did review this place again. Who says I can't? Ha! After many many visits this place has REALLY grown on us. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is at first glance "nothing special". You won't see dolphins or alligators; whales or sea lions here. No, those live outside the aquarium along the rec trail (not the alligators, but you catch my drift.) They do have otters though. Otters that were rescu…

Cheap "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Dubrovnik, Croatia
Tucked away from the Stradun in a quiet passage, the Art Renaissance Restaurant lives up to its name through its Italianate décor and ambiance. We would not have found this tiny gem of a restaurant had it not been for a man standing on a corner of the Stradun encouraging visitors to lunch there, and we were awfully glad we gave it a chance because we were not disappointed. The interior of the …

Very cheap "General Tips & Advice" in Georgia
One of the most thrilling part of exploring the caucasus mountains in georgia is by hiring a 4x4 and finding spots in the country to wild camp. it is necessary to have a 4x4 because the roads in georgia outside of the main highways are dirt tracks and sometimes with huge holes. there are no rules regarding wild camping in the country as long as you're out of the main roads or farms. we campe…

Average priced "Hotels & Accommodations" in Machynlleth, Wales, UK
The White Lion is an attractive old pub very close to Machynlleth's Clock Tower (it's 7 minutes walk from the train station and has a large carpark behind it if you're driving). Room prices are reasonable (much more so if you're sharing). As advertised, my double room was on the small side but was en-suite, it had a comfortable bed and a modern shower with loads of hot water, despite being behing …

Expensive "Hotels & Accommodations" in Vernadsky Station, Antarctica
The laws of tourism in Antarctica forbid food and drink in the island, and to many people’s discomfort, are also strict about toilet use. So we had to eat dinner knowing no bathroom call for the next 14 hours. Almost everyone made camp down in the flat near the old hut, but a few of us spread out along the hill. I chose to make camp at the furthest point using a rock outcropping as a possible…

Average priced "Sights & Attractions" in Charlottesville, Virginia, USA
Time marches on, but fortunately we look back over our shoulder every now and again to make sure we are on the right path. Up until 2016, you could tour the site known as Ash Lawn-Highland and be conducted through the presidential home of James Monroe. The “Ash Lawn” had been contributed by folks who subsequently purchased the plantation and experienced devastation from fires. Thanks to dev…

Expensive "Hotels & Accommodations" in Oranjestad, Aruba
The main reason we booked at this hotel was because we wanted to go to the hotel's private island which is appropriately called Renaissance Island. More specifically, we wanted to experience close encounters with the flamingos on this island's beach called..what else..Flamingo beach. (separate review to be posted later) The hotel itself is located right in downtown Oranjestad and overlooks the …

Cheap "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Matera, Italy
We have dined at Trattoria Paolangelo on two occasions, and both times, our experiences were pleasant. The location is only 10 minutes’ walk to/from our hostel (Ostelo de Sassi) and less than a five-minute walk to the National Museum of Medieval and Modern Arts. Our first visit, our orders were four different pasta dishes, an appetizer, soda drinks, and water. The appetizer was delicious and…
