Conrad Manila, the newest 5 star luxury hotel to open in Manila will be accepting guests this June 15, 2016. I got the chance to see the hotel before it formally opened. The hotel has 347 guest rooms, two restaurants, a bar, and a cafe/chocolatier at the lobby. The hotel is located on top ofContinue reading “Conrad Manila”
One of the hardest part of making our itinerary with A2A Safaris was choosing where to stay in Sabi Sands which has at least 21 private game reserves that were all luxurious but some were dfinitely wallet-busting so we had to choose well.
When I think of travel to Africa the first thing that comes to mind is a safari. I’m not a big fan of animals except for my dogs but going to Africa has always been on my bucket list.

One of my favorite restaurants in Hong Kong is Nobu in InterContinental Hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui. I’ve eaten there a number of times but I can’t believe the only time I wrote about it was way back in 2009 and it was one of my first few posts.
I have a friend from the US and she said there’s no good food in Hong Kong. She’s lucky we were chatting online when she said that or else she would have heard my loud scream, “Are you crazy?” I’ve forgiven her for that blasphemous statement.
