Found an article online the other day titled ‘Best Hotel Booking Websites for Travel’ that I wanted to share. I clicked on the article thinking I knew all the tricks and that this would confirm that the sites I was looking on were certainly on the list. I was wrong. Not a single one. It introduced me to eight new websites I’d never heard of and I assume most people haven’t either. There are some catches of course since most of these hotel websites are more ‘specialized’ then your standard Venere.com, Booking.com, hotwire.com, etc… If you do happen to be heading to one of the places where these sites operate I’d be interested in knowing if the rates are actually cheaper than what I can get on the ‘standard’ websites.

The whole time we were in Munich it was grey and rainy. Unfortunately, because they were also prepping for a major sporting event at the time (world games? world cup? I forget which) a lot of the buildings were also under major construction so the facades were also covered and/or the buildings were closed… Therefore, we wound up seeing the insides of a lot of coffee shops. However, it just gives us a reason to go back – it is the city of beer after all and I do love soft pretzels so you won’t have to twist my arm.
