Happy Sunday to all of our travel friends, both near and far! Here are some articles we’ve read from other bloggers (and other sources) that we think you may like, as well, so we’re passing them along.
If you’ve gone to Las Vegas in the past decade or two, you’ve undoubtedly seen the famous, iconic fountains in front of the resort, luxury hotel and casino called the Bellagio. Running every 15 to 30 minutes depending on season and time and day of the week, the fountains have enthralled visitors since the hotel’s opening in (are you ready to feel really old?) 1998. The fountains have been there for almost 20 years – have you ever wondered how they work?
Over the years we’ve stayed in our share of hotels, from the ultra-luxurious to the really cheap. One thing about any hotel that usually fails to impress me is the pool. I get that the pool is the main thing some guests think about but I just don’t get the appeal. You’ll never hear me say “Wow, that hotel pool was amazing.” That is until we visited this hotel.
Happy Saturday friends, and hooray, it’s finally the weekend! Here’s a recap of what we wrote on YMMV this week. From great travel deals to what we’ve written to what others wrote that we really liked and wanted to share, it’s all here, in one convenient place!
If you haven’t figured it our based on the title, my newest travel pet peeve has to do with water. More specifically, it has to do with falling water.
I’ve had it with hotel showers.
Honestly, the shower is the one thing in a hotel room that has the most things that can go wrong. The shower curtain can blow onto you during your shower. There can be a lack of light in the shower, leading to what I like to call a shower closet. Showers can have poor waterproofing or just a poor design that leaves whatever was on the bathroom floor, like floormats or your clothes, soaking wet. The shower controls can also be placed in a location where it’s impossible to turn on the shower without being in the path of the water.
None of those are my newest problem. This time I just couldn’t turn the darn shower on.
