Tour Review Munich: Gray Line Tours

Sometimes you encounter a city that is so jam packed with things to see and do that you hardly know where to begin. That’s the case with the delightful city of Munich. Fortunately, there is a way to see all the major points of interest, without having to stress over how to organize it all. We’ve all sat through the recorded information that bores people to tears on a hop-on-hop-off bus tour. The information is fed to you through an ear piece, if it’s working, and then you’re left to wonder what’s been left out and wish you could...

More to Munich

When someone says Munich, most people immediately think of Oktoberfest. Yes, this famous festival does fill up the city for 2 weeks each year, but there is so much more to Munich than beer and pretzels. We had the opportunity to visit Munich as guests of the Munich Tourism Board, officially known a München Tourismus. Their website, with information on just about everything available in Munich, may be the only guide you need. It’s certainly one of the most comprehensive city websites I’ve ever seen… and I’ve seen a lot. Upon arrival at the main train station, we walked...

Accommodation Review Munich: King’s Center Hotel

All around Europe we have been arriving into train stations wondering where our hotel is and how to get there. With 40-50 pound bags on our backs, we’re both hoping we have to walk less than a kilometer or two to get there! We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the Munich central train station and our hotel, provided by the Munich Tourism Board, was directly in front of us, just two blocks away. I can’t tell you what a relief that is! We were greeted at the King’s Center Hotel by a friendly staff and a smooth...

Time to Relax: Bali, Indonesia

After debating a while on whether or not to go to Thailand after an exhausting trip through India, we decided to give Indonesia a try, as we had previously visited Thailand on our honeymoon. We did some research and found that you can rent houses in Bali, world renowned for surfing and beach life, for only a couple hundred dollars. We booked into a little hotel for a few nights to relax and find a place to spend a few weeks. We arrived in Bali on November 23rd, which was pretty much perfect. Although a lot cooler temperature-wise than...

Pillows Brussels, A City Retreat

With a combined total of more than 50 countries visited, Griffin and I have stayed in our fair share of questionable hotels. It’s a rare opportunity to report accommodation that actually exceeds our expectations. While checking out the sites in Brussels, Belgium, we had the absolute pleasure of staying in a fabulous boutique hotel called Pillows. This hotel is one of Sandton’s “concept hotels” being introduced throughout Europe. Basically, the concept is that the hotel is all-inclusive, with as many extras as you can possibly think up, all for the price of any room that you book. I think...
