Checking in – Hotels around the worldLike0

No matter how much you travel, whatever the purpose is. Luxury, business, pleasure or adventure…We have the whole world in our hands and yet tere are these certain things you do when you first check into a hotel that defines you.

 

What do YOU do when you first check into a hotel? Here is our list.

 

1. Run to check out the bathroom – I have no clue what the fascination is all about but the size of the toilet is in equal proportion to its luxury! An obsession with bathrooms and their showers goes way back from when we first went to Las Vegas and witnessed at first hand how extra ordinary a bathroom can be! A good hotel shows off their best on that section of the room. Our recent favorite was at the Waldorf Astoria Palm Dubai!

2. Balcony and view – Location Location Location. The only way to wake up is with the best view. You have to face it, if the room has a view, it could possibly be the best stay ever!

3. The bed – No matter how you hold yourself in front of the bell boy that takes your luggage up. You know that once he shuts the door and you are alone, you either jump on the bed or test the springs in them! Especially when you have a King size with thick duvet! Then, you order breakfast in bed!!!

    Fun post! I do the same with the bathrooms. For the bed, I usually jump on the bed really! 🙂

  • From where I drone 🚁 - Beautiful Mauritius 🇲🇺
  • My childhood friend of 30 years took this picture of me last week when we drove to Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. We’ve been friends for so long I can’t remember which one of us is the bad influence 😂. It was so random because she kept on insisting that I don’t turn away from the camera and I couldn’t stop laughing before a bee almost attacked me!! So there you go. Happy Tuesday 🇱🇧♥️
  • Ever been to Croatia? What does this place reminds you of?
  • I had a chance to get away into Bekaa Valley. From the 1st century BC, when the region was part of the Roman Empire, the Beqaa Valley served as a source of grain for the Roman provinces. I took Chloè and stayed in a lovely cozy guest house called @al_haush and explored the fields of crops and vineyards. 🇱🇧 I’m so in love with Lebanon 🇱🇧
  • I found this little lake by mistake on the way to Bekaa Valley. I was surprised given that it was in the middle of nowhere and the water was blue and cold! Where would you suggest I explore more in Lebanon? 🇱🇧 #Q30 #infinitilebanon
  • Some of the greatest sky colors I’ve seen were in Portugal 🇵🇹 Sunset views from @avanilisbonhotel ♥️
Have you been to Lisbon yet?
  • Sunday morning dreaming of being back in Maldives! I’d like to be transported right now! 
This would be my super power wish for the day. 😊 
What would yours be today?
  • It’s the weekend!!! 🇱🇧🇱🇧 Breakfast table at home in Beit Douma prepared by @kamalmouzawak ♥️
What’s your favorite thing on the table?
  • You know what’s the most beautiful feeling in the world? Knowing that both your presence and absence mean something to someone. ♥️
  • The ancient Phoenician wall in Batroun , Lebanon between (3,300 B.C. to 64 B.C.)
Batroun was once one of the most important Phoenician cities in the region and is one of the oldest cities in the world! It is by far, one of my favorite places in Lebanon 🇱🇧
It was super windy that day but I managed to get few shots on my drone until the battery ran out on me while flying!!! I honestly have no idea how it just landed inside the church walls on its own and not in the water!! 😊
  • Faqra ruins, an archaeological site in Kfardebian, Lebanon, with Roman and Byzantine ruins. It’s one of the most important sites of the UNESCO sites. 🇱🇧 I didn’t know which picture to share so I posted both 😊
