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!!!

    Absolutely saw myself doing this! I would actually check the TV channels too.

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

  • They say, reality is a projection of your thoughts. I’ve dreamed about sailing north of the arctic for years... I never doubted for a second that it would not happen ‘one day’ but, nothing every prepared me for what I’m experiencing on this trip witnessing the magic of the midnight sun!! I’ve seen and felt things I never imagined existed or at least only on @natgeotravel magazines. This is the start of my 3 day journey sailing in the arctic! 💫

I’m also very excited to announce our new partnership with @pukkatravels for our next @travelwithtjd #TravelWithTJD in October and now, you can join me too! Information will be up tonight on the link in bio!
  • I know escapism is real to so many of us... but you can’t escape yourself and, travel won’t be the answer, so learn to love every single weakness and strength you have because no matter where you go, your thoughts go with you... nothing will disappear just because you can’t see what’s going on. 💫
  • There is something so incredibly special and cozy about boutique hotels that I love so much... like @constancehotels - Do you prefer large resorts or boutique properties?
  • We all have different reasons for forgetting to breathe... and most of us are breathing the best way we can... I think I’m ready to get back out there 💫
  • It’s the ‘have you seen the way he looks at her’ kind of love I have with you 💫
  • What do you see? It’s so easy to fall in love with landscapes and nature in Sweden. I know some of you have realized my insane fascination with Scandinavia but I just can’t help it. Maybe it’s because I am familiar with isolation and I embrace it so well... It keeps my creativity as fierce as ever and it never gets lonely. Maybe it’s because I love the adventure and photography so much... I’m not sure what it is. 
This is called The Mirrorcube - camouflaged mirrored walls reflecting the surrounding. I can’t wait to return!
  • This simply makes me smile! Happy Sunday everyone! Can you spot the baby giraffe? 😊
  • I’m sorting out my summer plans today and added Portugal again! I’m excited to be going back and exploring more landscapes, culture, food, sailing and the incredible nightlife! There is a whole article on my last trip and guides on my website! What are your summer plans?
  • I gave you a heart stronger than a thousand warriors... but it will take you years to learn that not everyone loves like you do... 💫
  • Not bad for a view outside my room window! She looks like she’s waiting for me to come out and play ☺️ - What do you think?
  • Looking back at the exact same time last year on a #TravelwithTJD team trip to Tokyo with @ritzcarlton - This was the view from my beautiful room. One of the most beautiful places I’ve been to! Have you been to Japan? I’ve got lots of articles and guides on the blog!
  • I spent my morning with @fourseasons worldwide team at @fsdubaidifc for breakfast and it was so wonderful to learn more about their new and existing projects, but here is a memory taking me back to Maldives. Isn’t the Maldives just an incredible place!?
