Alba Iulia! A place in Romania you probably haven’t heard of since there aren’t many tours to the place. Originally used as a fortress, the shape of a double-star helped with defending and attacking in the event of an invasion.
I’m a big fan of getting free stuff. When traveling through airports, free airport lounge access is always amazing since they have wifi, comfy seats, drinks and food. Lounge access can be attained with Priority Pass.
Ok, it was close to free! It was in the free “area code”. I used 44,000 Radisson Rewards hotel points to stay at the Radisson Blu Malta Golden Sands rather than paying the $300+/night the hotel was retailing for. Plus, I got an upgraded room!
While in Malta, be sure to block out a few hours to check out the Mdina Gate. It’s another fortress on Malta!
There are two popular blue lagoons in the world. The most popular one is in Iceland and it’s a hot spring. The second (less known) location is in Malta.
I tried Irish food and immediately wanted to leave the country…and I did after 4 days. Dublin is a pretty modern city with a lot of diversity, typically you’d expect to get really good food in this situation. I however, did not.
Dublin has many tours to see Game Of Thrones film locations. If you were thinking of going, read this review first. If I could travel back in time, I would not do this again. It’s 14 hours!
“My Top 10 Life Changing Books” is a pretty bold statement since I got the audiobooks. These are Life Improving Audiobooks.
The Dublin By Bike Tour is informative, but not engaging. It’s like taking a bike tour with Wikipedia.
I pretty much went to Ireland because I heard there was awesome castles and the best pint of Guinness. I can confirm, the Guinness there was the smoothest and tastiest in the world.
