The Netherlands – Its Not ALL Amsterdam

I find it amusing that whenever you tell someone that you’re going to Holland or The Netherlands for a few days, they immediately assume that you’re off to Amsterdam. Having visited The Netherlands a few times in the lasts few years, only one of these has actually included Amsterdam itself, with other trips taking in…

Premier or Not so Premier Inn?!

I’ve definitely spent my  fair share of time in hotels, sometimes living in them for 6-12 months at a time. A mixture of living in, holiday and business use of hotels, both in the UK and Overseas, has given me experience of all kinds of standards. Over the last 5 years, since working back in…
