A Foodie Weekend on the Isle of Wight with the Royal Hotel #VIDEO

source url On a romantic, foodie-centric, weekend escape from London, I explored the beautiful Isle of Wight with The Royal Hotel. First of all, getting there was very easy. A quick, hour and 15-minute train ride out of Waterloo station and a 25-minute ferry later I had arrived on this stunning island. This isle, just south off the coast of Great Britain, is known for summertime festivals, exceptional local produce, and a unique cultural experience where a hippy way of life meets English culture. Many also come to enjoy surfing, beach fun, and biking along nature trails. And I noticed a tranquility about this island that made me feel at home and relaxed upon arrival. The Royal Hotel falls into my hotel…

A Lake District Getaway from London #Video

http://travelwithkate.com/?x=viagra-in-usa In this episode of Travel with Kate, I go on a Lake District getaway from London full of luxury and outdoor adventure. To be specific, I stayed at Sharrow Bay, a hotel right on Ullswater, a body of water in the Northern part of the Lake District National Park in Cumbria. Sharrow Bay definitely fits into my hotel ranking system of Local Luxury. And It holds two claims to fame. Number one, it’s known as the first ever country house hotel (a common type of lodging in this country that was once a private vacation home but now open to guests). Number two, the hotel founders claim that they were the originators of the Sticky Toffee Pudding. This desert is…

The Cape Hotel in Cabo San Lucas – Stay or not stay?

follow link If you’ve got a craving for great food and a luxurious beach vacation, The Cape Hotel in Cabo is for you. Just before the holidays I took a long weekend getaway with one of my dearest friends to Cabo. The trip was a perfect moment to reconnect – she lives over 3,000 miles from me! And we don’t get to hang as much as we crave. But this trip was a perfect girls getaway where we got to indulge in nature-filled activities and lounge around a luxury hotel. In this article, I’ll talk about our hotel. The Cape – A Thompson Hotel is nearly equidistant from Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo – the two cultural hubs most…

La Belle Juliette: A Romantic Hotel in Paris

how to get viagra Tasked with finding a hotel steeped in Parisian style for my wedding guests and high on romance for me and my husband, I discovered La Belle Juliette. A few days before my wedding in Paris, the plan was to have my parents, my sisters, and their spouses join us in town. And so, I had the task of finding wedding accommodations in Paris that were up to my expectations in my neighborhood of choice: St Germain des Pres. I wanted a hotel on a quiet street, tourist-free, and close to shops and restaurants that would give my family a sense of living in Paris. I also wanted the amenities at the hotel to be modern and the interiors to reflect Parisian…

Berners Tavern at The London Edition

Date Night in #London at Berners Tavern

http://femininemoneymagic.com/?x=buy-viagra-in-uk As you may have noticed, I travel to London frequently. These trips are not for work nor just for play. More specifically, they are for love. My boyfriend lives in London. I suppose it was inevitable that I would end up with someone across the globe with all the travel I do. But I’ll admit long distance relationships are tough even if (or especially if) you have found the love of your life. When I visit my boyfriend in London from Los Angeles the pressure is on to make every minute together count. When I’m in town we explore the city, creating beautiful memories. The best ones are made from impromptu moments like when we shared an ice cream in…

Posh Cocktails in The Punch Room #London

generic drug name for viagra Looking for a posh night out in London? If so, I have you covered! On a recent trip to my favorite city, I headed over to The London Edition which proved to be an elegant and hip destination for dinner and drinks. The hotel is located near Oxford Circus but far enough off the main drag to be out of sight of the average tourist. Upon entering the lobby, the tall, ornate ceiling, the large bar glowing with back-lit bottles of spirits, and the chic crowd were all telltale signs I’d found a popular spot for hip and upper-class London locals. On Travel with Kate, I have a rating system to review hotels, restaurants and other travel experiences. And I…
