~Soulful Travels~ Review of Hotel2Stay in Amsterdam

Amsterdam is a city of strangeness, full of eccentricities and weird experiences that you will most definitely not have anywhere else in the world. However, when a weary traveler returns from walks through this craziness they will be wishing for conventional comforts. That is exactly what you can expect from the superb new Hotel2Stay.

~Soulful Travels~ Pantone Hotel: a Colorful Relief in Busy Brussels

Although our time in Brussels was quite short, it was seriously overwhelming! As our student map stated, it is the place for people who love chaotic, crazy and bustling cities full of activity and confusion… this was not an understatement!

We recently took a trip to the Zanzibar archipelago off the coast of Tanzania. All I can say is that you find yourself on an idyllic piece of land surrounded by the always warm Indian Ocean – absolute paradise! The resort we stayed at was amazing – but more on that in another post. One of the highlights of the trip was the tours we went on, who knew there was such variety on this small island.
