10 Reasons to Stay at Flores Guest House in Lisbon

flores intro

On our recent trip to Lisbon, we were there for two nights/three days, and we stayed at Flores Guest House. This  accommodation is set-up in a pretty cool and unique way; instead of  being an actual single guest house, or in a hotel style, they book out various flatlets in different buildings all situated in and around Praça das Flores (the Flower Square). The very first impression you get when looking at its surrounding area and your room is that it is charming, cute and overall has a fresh and happy energy. Malick’s first words when he entered the room were, “Now this really feels like a Euro summer holiday.” That being said, here are ten reasons to stay at Flores Guest House. (more…)

Review: Oubaai Hotels and Golf Estate, Herolds Bay

If you read my blog posts from earlier this week, you’ll know it’s my second time visiting Oubaai in the last month, which I guess tells you the direction this review is going. Before I share my experience, it’s best to know we aren’t golf-people, and I’m an accommodation snob. I blame it on my days when I was cabin crew; I stayed in a lot of amazing hotels in that year, and it nurtured my eye and taste for comfort. All opinions in this review are my own, and no part of our stay was sponsored (except for the drive, thanks Dad!)

For the last few years, I’ve journeyed on many an airplane, both short and long-haul, and found the effects of a high altitude can really take its toll on your body. Furthermore, unfortunately, 90% of the time I can’t sleep on a flight, so beauty sleep is out of the question for me (more…)
