Sur Plaza Hotel – Where To Stay While In The Ancient City of Sur, Oman

Time to tick off my 172nd country – Oman! After exploring the beautiful city of Muscat, we headed to Sur where we stayed for 3 days and 2 nights. And in this city, our home was Sur Plaza Hotel.  Located just 220 kilometers from the capital city, Muscat, Sur is known for its shipyards which were vital when it comes to the city’s maritime past. Due to its location, Sur also became a very important city for sailors and traders, especially those from East Africa and India. This is also why seeing large wooden boats in this city is not surprising at all! Just right after our wonderful day touring Muscat and the desert, we drove straight to Sur to spend our 3 days and 2 nights while also exploring the nearby attractions. The moment we arrived at the Sur Plaza H...

It’s my first time in Oman! My 172nd country! On my first few days in Muscat, I stayed in Al Falaj Hotel. I was so excited to finally step foot in Oman!

Radisson Blu Hotel, Riyadh Qurtuba

Cheers to my 171st country – Saudi Arabia! And for this special event, it was Radisson Blu Hotel, Riyadh Qurtuba that hosted me! Finally! After my second attempt, I entered Saudi Arabia. My first attempt was last March 2020 but unfortunately, I got stuck at the Riyadh Airport due to the last-minute Covid rules at that time so I just decided to cancel my Saudi Arabia trip. But hey! Here I am now, much bolder and happier! I am so grateful that not only did I finally enter my 171st country (which is Saudi Arabia), but I also got the opportunity to stay at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Riyadh Qurtuba! Got so lucky because I stayed at one of their fancy suites plus they just opened less than a year ago, haha! Other articles you can read...

Liliha Bakery – The Best Bread and Pastry Shop in Waikiki

The newly opened Liliha Bakery in Waikiki is a must-visit not only for their yummy pastries but their other food selection as well! We crave some sweets once in a while and like you, I also love eating them (though I have to consider my diet, how to say “no” to desserts? haha!) Well, desserts are also known to lessen our stress, because it makes us happy (I don’t know if it’s just me! lol) As long as we eat the right amount depending on our health condition, then there won’t be any problem. For this reason, whenever I travel, I always look for a place to eat some sweets that will satisfy my cravings. Of course, I was in Hawaii so it’s unsurprising that there are a lot of options. I was in Waikiki for a while when I found out about the newly-opened Liliha B...
