If there are two things I didn’t think I’d ever put in the same sentence, they would be “Taco Bell” & “Opening A Hotel & Resort.” But apparently The Bell: A Taco Bell Hotel & Resort is scheduled to open in Palm Springs this summer. So that’ll show me, huh?
Happy Wednesday 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.
It wasn’t Academy Award material, but The Rocky Horror Picture Show, based on the West-End musical The Rocky Horror Show, was released in 1975 and is one of the first cult classic films. Fans still go to midnight screenings, with confetti, toilet paper and water pistols at the ready, nearly 45 years later…
Filmed entirely in England (in just 6 weeks!) in late 1974, the castle exterior, criminologist’s study, Brad’s room, Janet’s room, dining room, Columbia’s room, entrance hall and stairs were all filmed at a castle that, at the time, didn’t have heat or indoor plumbing. Since then, they’ve done a lot of upgrades, and the castle is now functioning as a luxury hotel. Best of all, it’s just about 20 minutes outside of London’s Heathrow Airport!
Joe and I use fitted sheets at home because they’re fast, efficient and convenient. We use a regular flat sheet that goes between the fitted sheet and the blanket, but for the actual sheet that we sleep on, it’s fitted all the way.

Back in November 2018, Stephen from Frequent Miler shared a post about a Choice Privileges contest called, “Book. Spin. Win.” While the contest offered an entry to everyone who booked a hotel stay through the Choice mobile app, you could also get a free entry without booking a hotel stay. Prizes ranged from 200 to 3,000 Choice Privileges points. Free points are free points, so I entered.
I didn’t break the bank with my winnings.
