A look out your hotel, apartment or B&B window often provides the first look to the place you are about to explore. I want to share that initial peek with you. Special thanks to Meredith and Dave for the inspiration.
One of the best views today. This is a lovely, canal-filled city and I am enjoying the view and the sounds that come with it as I update the blog and plan some more travel.
While the flag may be Brazilian, the view is of Paris rooftops. If you had a really long neck, you might be able to see the Eiffel Tower!
Just a quick stop in Caen in between Normandy and Mont St. Michel. Stayed at the Novotel, which was not surprisingly like every other Novotel I’ve stayed at!
En Gedi, Israel
We stayed at the En Gedi Kibbutz and I’d highly recommend it if you are traveling to the Dead Sea. Rooms were basic, but the grounds were lovely, and this was my house kitty who welcomed me.
We stayed within the walled city and had barred windows as well! I don’t think I’ve ever stayed in a hotel that had four heavily armed men sleeping on the couch by reception, but it’s nice to know that the Sephardic House is secure. The location was great for exploring the old town. Rooms were basic and clean.
Wadi Rum, Jordan
We stayed in a tent in the Bait Ali Bedouin Camp in Wadi Rum. Since they were tents, you couldn’t really see much from the window, but this was my view as I walked to the bathroom in the morning. Great hospitality, basic accommodations and a fun experience. Would be nice to spend a couple days here.
The best thing about this hotel was the view. The food was terrible, the room was dirty, the animals were not cats… I slept in my clothes. But I had a nice view as I watched the sunrise.
Tel Aviv, Israel
Since I stayed here the longest, you think I’d get a better photo… but this was the view from the front door. Apartment was great. Hosts were even better. It was an Airbnb, but it’s being sold, so I do not think they are renting it for much longer.
I will continue to update this post as I travel, so check back for more view and hotel information.
