Expensive "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Jimbaran, Indonesia
Our driver takes us to this restaurant for our seafood dinner in Jimbaran. I was a bit suspicious as the place was quite empty, only has 2 tables occupied at the beach front. Whereas the next door restaurant looks much more merrier with many people and also dancing performance. But I decided to try it as I like to try a new restaurant to find out if the food is good or not. We get the fresh fis…

Cheap "General Tips & Advice" in Trang, Thailand
From Bangkok Don Miamg Airport Air Asia and Nok Air have cheap flights.

Cheap "Hotels & Accommodations" in Riga, Latvia
I started independent and budget travel back in 2005 and I was always mesmerised by the idea of staying in a hostel - what was it? well a nice cosy low cost place where you could meet and interact with fellow travellers. That was 2005. Since then, hostels have become so "famous" and mainstream that a lot of these establishments are becoming as commercial and cold as a hotel. I'd go as far a…

Expensive "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Seattle, Washington, USA
This is a stylish, if rather cavernous, wine bar/restaurant with an interesting menu that includes pasta dishes, pizzas, salads and other dishes. Despite it being a wine bar, however, on our first visit neither of us drank wine! Chris had a beer while I stuck to a soft drink as I was tired from our long flight to Seattle earlier that day - an interesting house-made 'shrub' flavoured with apric…

Expensive "Sights & Attractions" in The Hague, Netherlands
Madurodam, the highlights of the Netherlands all wrapped up in a small amusement park. Madurodam is located in the Hague and shows important Dutch buildings and sites in miniature form. We got some tickets from a friend and so we went. With we I mean my 3 year old and I. She loved all the little houses! Though I doubt that she understands the historical value of some of the buildings or the atenti…

Expensive "Hotels & Accommodations" in Budapest, Hungary
This hotel is a good one; although the price is sort of expensive. It has three things going for it. First is the location, it has a great view and its located about 50 feet from a stop on the local tram station. The tram is sort of a above ground street car, sort of like what they have in Portland. Next thing is that the rooms are niiiiiice. I got upgraded to a suite, and it was uh suite. T…

Ridiculously Expensive "Hotels & Accommodations" in Heythuysen, Netherlands
I'm searching a place to stay for five person with three adults and two children. My sister and her two kids is going with us. This apartment is an ideal location just outside the border of Belgium. Is very hard to find a place to stay for five people on last minute, at first I thought a hotel room maybe cheaper but I'm thinking also if we're going to dine everyday with five of us it will cost a l…

Expensive "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Mount Vernon, Virginia, USA
Not the greatest dining experience of your life, but the Mount Vernon Inn will supply a fair meal in a suitably colonial atmosphere during your visit to George and Martha’s place. The restaurant is situated in a well-done reproduction of colonial elegance, with decoration and attendants sympathetically appointed. I was saddened my mother and sister did not join me in ordering a cup of Virgin…
