6 THINGS EVERY TRAVELER SHOULD KNOW ABOUT HOTELS

We all love staying at a good hotel because we can feel just like at home, be pampered like real royals and enjoy luxurious service. And although it seems like we don’t need to know a lot about hotels to get excellent service, we are wrong. In fact, there are at least six hidden things you might not know yet! But today, let me open up the curtain and share those things you just have to remember while looking for a hotel with excellent service and price range!

Financial Independence Day

Happy Independence Day to all of my US readers today. I hope you get to enjoy a day off, eat some good food, and watch fireworks. If you don’t live in the US, well Happy Thursday. I’ll either be completing or recovering from a triathlon, so sitting around this evening sounds just wonderful.

Can’t Take My Eyes Off These Blogs #9-Brothel Edition

I’m sure everyone has been waiting on pins and needles for my weekly roundup, which is a day late. The family spent the weekend in Moab, UT in a cabin at one of the campgrounds. When we arrived, we noticed that the cabins were named after establishments in an old west town, like the saloon, blacksmith, sheriff, etc. Driving up to our cabin, we were quite thrilled to see that we were staying in the “Brothel.” I’ve giggled all weekend. Can’t wait to go to work on Monday and have someone ask what we did this weekend. “We stayed at the brothel!” The fun never ends. Eyes on the Dollar was mentioned in quite a few places this week.
