Porto has that decaying decadence that you think of with Havana, but with amazing food, beautiful azulejos and a hopping wine country and port trade on the river. Zone out and spend 3 minutes with me checking out my time in Porto, Portugal.
Many hotels targeting Gen Z & millennial focus on very cool, hip common spaces with the idea of getting you out of your room to socialize, work and play. CitizenM London seamlessly does both. I found myself torn between luxuriating in my XL king size bed or watching the sun set over the Tower of London with a gin & tonic. Check out my stay in this video and see more photos on my previous post, Perfect Stay – citizenM Tower of London.
XL king-size bed that you just melt into. Views over-looking the Tower of London. Full service bar and eats 24 hrs a day (so hard to find in London!) and a stones throw away from hip East London? citizenM Tower of London has this west-London die-hard looking East in a whole new way.
I relished taking the taxis that regular Cubans take, and rolled by eyes at being ripped off by the shiny new ones. I enjoyed seeing the sites at the ration markets and the back alleys of Cuba where our guide Julio took us.
Running a successful company and surfing in the Pacific every morning, sure! Seeing friends a few times a week over laughs and pisco sours is de rigueur. It’s this spirit that I will carry with me.
The district of Barranco is an Instagrammer’s dream with countless walls of beautiful murals telling stories from whimsy and history in every shade imaginable.
I have tried a pisco sour pre-Peru and absolutely loved it. I was excited to try it again in the home of pisco sours, Lima, Peru.
