Situated slap-bang in the middle of Oslo, the Hotel Continental is a classy affair and Norway’s only member of the Leading Hotels of the World. The hotel has been built up by a single family over four generations, and this is reflected in the warmth of the customer service. Upon arrival I was greeted with a [...]

On the #DiscoverMalaysia blog trip I was hosted at the Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur, a 5* hotel in the city centre adjacent to the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. At the Grand Hyatt the Lobby is on the top floor, not the ground floor, so we had to take an express elevator to the top! The [...]
On my visit to Israel organised by the Israel Ministry of Tourism, I was very fortunate to be able to stay at Jerusalem’s most famous and luxurious hotel, The King David. The King David Hotel is not just a hotel, but a landmark of Jerusalem. Opened in 1931, the hotel has seen many historic moments [...]
Since my flight to Tel Aviv was departing from London Luton early in the morning, I needed somewhere to stay in London the night before. I’m from Manchester, and it’s simply not possible to get to the airport that early by train. So I needed to find a hotel in London that would be convenient [...]

Step in Yotel, with trendy purple cabins available from 4 to 24 hours… I’ve slept in lots of airports over the last few years and it’s definitely not a comfortable [...]
During my time in Las Vegas I had the opportunity to stay for two nights in one of the new MGM Grand King rooms at the MGM Grand. To say the MGM Grand is huge would be an understatement. The place is more like a City within a City! As I walked into the lobby [...]
I was asked to take a look at a new hotel search engine called Hotel Calculator, a price comparison site that checks the price of hotels offered by different hotel booking sites. What I like about this application is it not only searches for hotels, it finds you the cheapest hotel booking site to book [...]
Who is this Pommie chick?
I'm a British girl from Manchester and I have been traveling solo since 2008. After graduating from university I decided there was more to life than the hours between 9 and 5, so I packed my journalism degree into my suitcase to travel the world and work remotely. I hope to inspire you to be your own boss, live life and travel the world.
