Waking up has never been among my favorite things to do and definitely not when you know it is cold and dark outside and you have to go to work. I used to have an office job and live in Netherlands where in winter I drove to work when it was dark and came home in the darkness. If that is what you are facing this winter than this inspiring post with colorful breakfast images and ideas from breakfast foods around the world should help you get back into the holiday mood.
During all my recent stays in the Lion City I have been spoiled by the best luxury hotels in Singapore. From the best suite in W Sentosa cove, a Marina view clubroom in Marina Bay Sands and the presidential Suite in the Intercontinental to the most historical room in the first luxury hotel in Singapore The Raffels. I have never been disappointed in Singapore but all hotels have a different style. Let me tell you my experiences and find you the best hotel pools in Singapore.
You know that feeling when you come home from a holiday and the first couple days your mind is still at that amazing place? Amplify that by 10 and that is how I still feel exactly a month after I left Lux South Ari Atoll Maldives. I have been staying in a lot of fancy hotels & resorts all over the world and every experience seems even more amazing than the previous one, but almost a week on such a paradise island is hard to top.
Updated! I just returned from a trip to Maldives in December 2019 and updated this article with the new prices at the airport for a Maldives sim card. I checked the shops in Hulumale and Male as well and turns out that buying a prepaid sim card in Maldives is much cheaper at the airport.
Finally here is the blog post that most of you have been waiting for. Because every single day I get the same questions about how I afford to travel and how I make money from my travel blog. Here is the answer! In this blog I will exactly tell you how it works to get paid and travel and how to be a full time travel blogger. This is an honest inside into my life as a professional travel blogger, also including the not so glamorous financial side of it!
Travelling to Singapore has never been a favourite, although I am pretty intrigued by big cities. My first visit to the country was in 2009 and after that I had never been back. The reason? It is simply too expensive! I am not rich by any means and I think it is not worth spending so much money if for the same money I am spending here in 1 day, I can live a week in the neighbouring countries.
Staying at Kandima Maldives marked already the 10th luxury resort in Maldives I visited. Many people think that all resorts are the same, but that is totally wrong. Kandima only opened its doors to guests less than a year ago so is brand new and is the Kandima concept is completely different than most other resorts, I will explain you why.
My second resort after a week in the Maldives with Maldives TV was one away from the North Male Atoll. About 60 kilometers East of the capital there is a little Atoll called Rasdhoo and coincidentally I had already been there last year on my first visit to Maldives. Rasdhoo itself though is a local island and in 2016 I took a local boat to live like a local in Maldives. This time I traveled to an island next to it: Kuramathi Island Resort.
It was sad saying goodbye at the Lux South Ari Atoll but there was not a lot of time to deal with that as a new adventure was waiting. I landed back again on Hulhumale Island and made my way to the Anantara private lounge. Unlike 99% of the resorts Anantara does not have a little booth where you have to present yourself, Anantara has a little private lounge for its guests to relax after their mostly exhausting flight. It did only take a couple minutes though before my speedboat transfer was ready for departure. Naladhu Private Island is part of the Anantara Hotel Group and is one of those Maldives hotels with speedboat transfer. The boat ride took only about 40 minutes and there was the team of Naladhu waiting for my arrival.
I was beyond excitement for my trip to Sumilon Bluewater Island Resort as it was my first time on a private island resort. How am I going to experience being locked up on a tiny island? Do I get bored? Answering this question after being stuck on Sumilon Island for a couple days is simple: I never wanted to leave!
Recently I spent about two months in and around Bali and stumbled upon an surprisingly quiet oasis called The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah. I have been visiting Ubud many times, but never heard about this resort before, but I am happy I got invited to stay at this beautiful place lately as part of my 'honeymoon in Bali'.
Ubud accommodation with a private pool? The best resorts in Ubud? Luxury hotels in Ubud? Best places to stay on a budget? Yes I know them all! But answering the same question over and over made me realize I should compile a list of places in a where to stay in Ubud blog.
Traveling to Maldives is a dream for everyone that loves paradise destinations. Not only for honeymooners even for very experienced travel writers from all over the world. There was a little confusion about the event taking place or not, but not a single travel writer bailed out as everyone desperately wanted to be included in this amazing event held on such a unique location in the world. The Maldives is a dream destination and although it was my second time visiting this unique country I was excited to fly business class with Qatar Airways on my way to paradise.
