We traveled over 6000km in Spain & France and stayed in all types of accommodation. We covered it all from Luxury to Misery, ya know the “Get me out of here!” kind. Now it’s time to share it all with you, every place we stayed during our 8 week European road trip. Yes, we will include what we thought and the costs too. Keep on reading!
This was house sit number 5 for us and by far it was the most exciting house sit we’ve ever had. Let’s just say we had excitement from all ranges of the spectrum from exhilarating to scary.
Oh how we love Valencia! Last time we visited we stayed in a hotel, but this time we wanted a little more space and a kitchen. We chose Valencia Flats and were pleasantly surprised when we found out we had a terrace too!
We are asked time and time again about all of our house sitting opportunities. We get questions like, “How do we find housesits who accept families?”, “How do you house sit all over the world?”, “Do you get to choose the type of animal you will be pet sitting?” and the lists goes on. For us, house sitting is an excellent way for us to get time with pets as well as save a little money on accommodation when traveling. Below we will share with you everything you need to know about house sitting. Oh and a little something special, just for Wagoners Abroad readers!
London is an exciting city for all ages, with a long list of things to see and do for the entire family. Remember Alan and I lived there for nearly 3 years, when we were first married. We finally introduced the city to the kids in 2013 and we had so much fun touring around on the hop on hop off bus. We are big London fans and the kids keep asking to return.
After spending a little more than 7 months exploring Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, it was time to head south to Malaysia. We spent nearly 2 months in Malaysia and stayed in all types of accommodation, hotels, hostels, apartments, and homes. We were also scoping this area out as a potential long-term residence, in the future. This was the last couple of months in our Southeast Asia tour, so we were a bit tired of moving fast and were looking for a few options to help slow us down. We also spent 2 nights in Singapore, which we will include at the end.
Singapore is a wonderful place to visit, as it is so clean and organized. That does however come at a price, so be a bit prepared for a little sticker shock, as Singapore is expensive. That doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the country for a little bit. We had a wonderful 48 hours in Singapore with kids. We want to share what we have learned with you so you can get ideas of things to do in Singapore with kids and a couple of options on where to stay.
Many times we are asked about how we plan our travel. It seems you want to know how we book our flights, research activities, destinations and accommodation. As you know that is a loaded question, as we like to use the tools available to us. Sometimes one tool is better in a certain location than others. I am sure you have used review sites to help you plan and decide on where you will go or what you will do. We all know how reviews and opinions of others to help you plan. We do too! But now there is a new travel planning tool in town and it is called Yonderbound!
