During my visit in Spain I visited Barcelona and Ibiza, with a short break in Madrid.

Now I would like to tell you about my stay in Madrid, and if you plan also a travel there, please join me.

I was very short in Madrid, 1 day and night. The day was for visiting Museo del Prado, and the night for the Hotel AC Palacio del Retiro, which was recommended to me by friends. And I can recommend to you, as was spoiled there!

The hotel is located in the very centre of Madrid, and you can reach within 5 minutes walk Museo del Prado, Parque del Retiro, Puerta de Alcala, Puerta Del Sol, Reina Sofia Art Center and the Stock market.

The hotel itself is high class luxury *****. It has all modern top ammenities, combining this confort with its 1900 architecture. FABULUOS!

The ultimate travel experience for many people is the sea cruise. It is no longer the exclusive pastime of the well-off. Have you ever come into contact with someone who appears to be financially challenged, but constantly go on cruises? Never? Well these people exist! The travel benefits available to them is due to the flexible attitude they have in selecting their cruise. Flexibility in booking the sea cruise is one of the best cruise tips ever!

 

It is a fact of life that the more fixed you are in your travel plans, the more you will have to pay. Masters of discount travel select an area to cruise rather than selecting a particular company to cruise with or specific cruise dates because it is the travelling that is important to them. This give them choice of the best deals in terms of low cost air fares and last minute cancellations, removing them from dependence on travel agents and having to pay whatever it costs. Flexibility travel dates and destination can save a mountain of cash as the cruise experience is more or less the same wherever it goes.

Bangkok is one of those incredibly hectic cities that feels crammed from end to
end with people, all of whom appear to be moving about on the street and roads
at once. All this chaos, congestion and pollution can be a little overwhelming for
visitors, but Bangkok has always welcomed travelers with open arms, and there
is a friendly, approachable atmosphere here that is almost unique for such as
large, busy urban sprawl. Bangkok is also the gateway to the beautiful country of
Thailand, with its tropical climate, exotic beaches and stunning rain forests, and
prices throughout Bangkok (accommodation, food, attractions and excursions)
are so cheap that it makes the perfect destination for a tropical holiday for those
on a tight budget.
