My 6 Favorite Hostels in Boston

Posted: 1/18/2020 | January 18th, 2020 With its historic colonial buildings, die-hard sports fans, and lively nightlife, Boston is one of my favorite cities in the US (and I’m not just saying that because it’s where I grew up!). Boston has been a commercial hub since the 17th century and holds an important place in American history. After the Boston Tea Party in 1773, it became a pivotal bastion of support for the US War of Independence. Even today, the city is brimming with history and has lot...

My 4 Favorite Hostels in Seattle

Posted: 1/18/2020 | January 18th, 2020 Tucked away in the Pacific Northwest, Seattle is the birthplace of Starbucks and grunge music and home to some of the biggest tech companies in the world. But it’s also surrounded by stunning landscapes, with both the ocean and the mountains within easy reach. It’s known for being a laid-back, eclectic city — and an expensive one too. Since Seattle can be a little pricey, budget travelers will likely want to stay in a hostel. Even with the prevalence of A...

The Space Capsule Shower Stall, The Silo, and The Lie-Flat Seat — No, Not Aboard an Airplane: My First Time Staying at a Sleep Inn

During a recent road trip, I needed to stop off somewhere near Beckley in West Virginia for the night — and I decided on the Sleep Inn Beaver - Beckley hotel property due to its location near where I wanted to go the next morning; and also the less expensive room rates when compared to similar hotel properties within the region. I have never stayed at a Sleep Inn hotel property before and... The post The Space Capsule Shower Stall, The Silo, and The Lie-Flat Seat — No, Not Aboard an Airplane: My...

Won Ton More - Chinese North Dumpling Noodle House, Alexandria

Chinese North Dumpling Noodle House is located right opposite Bread and Circus although that is closed at night. It does a furious takeaway trade with people waiting for their orders on their phones. They hand us a picture menu which makes things easy for choosing. But what the pictures don't indicate is how large the servings are. I mean they are massive.

KY eats – Ngau Hor (beef noodle) at New Apollos, Subang USJ 4

Ngau Hor, or Cantonese style fried beef noodle, isn’t exactly a dish that is offered in many places.
