Venice with a baby? Stay in Cannaregio

When working out where to stay in Venice (or anywhere for that matter), there are a huge number of factors to take into account. Proximity to transport, restaurants, night-life etc.  When you’re travelling with a baby, some of these pale into insignificance, while others come to the fore. Before this…


Affordable apartment in Rome that is an easy walk to EVERYTHING!

We stayed in this apartment in Rome for about a week. As far as proximity goes, you can’t beat it. The apartment has its quirks but all in all it was great. Location The Pantheon and Piazza Navona are literally around the corner while the Forum and Colosseum are only…


Castlemaine Colonial Motel & Apartments

Centrally located, Castlemaine Colonial Motel & Apartments are exactly where you want them. Close enough to the town centre to grab and easy dinner, but no so close that you feel like you’re staying underneath the local pub. We stayed for two nights in one of the apartments at the…

Hotel St. Marie, New Orleans

We had originally booked the Place De Arms Hotel on Saint Ann St. Upon arrival, we were told that we were a month early, and that we were in fact due to stay there on July 6, not June 6. They were also full, so couldn’t give us another room….
