Reviews of my stay Grandhotel Hessischer Hof

6 Jun

I am a budget traveler and so my choice of stays during any trip normally includes hostels, B&Bs or homestays. While I love such places to stay in, every once in a while I do like to stay in a nice luxurious property and enjoy the comforts that these properties have to offer. And on my recent stay to Frankfurt, I stayed in one such luxurious hotel – the Grandhotel Hessischer Hof Hotel.

A Short Tryst with Germany this Spring

8 May

Germany or Deutschland – just the mention of this name is enough to conjure images of grand castles and palaces, the mysterious Black Forest region, world-class museums, the famous Oktoberfest, ancient art and traditions, amazing Autobahns, classical music, cars (Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche etc), numerous varieties of beer, the famous Rivers of Rhine and Danube, beautiful green covers and scenic beauty, carnivals and festivals, and so so much more. I have had an opportunity to briefly explore this country during my previous Europe trips (I have been to Munich and Neuschwanstein Castle in South Germany and to Aachen and Vogelsang in West Germany) and my curiosity and excitement to explore it further has only grown. But Germany has so many facets with unlimited things to see and experience that no matter how many times you visit, you will always be left with a craving to see more. Luckily I got a chance to explore this country with Germany National Tourism for a 5 day solo and unstructured trip.

It’s Germany Calling

24 Apr

2016 has been a busy year so far with several important work and personal commitments. On the personal front, I moved into my own new house and am looking forward to decorating it with all my travel memorabilia and books. This obviously has resulted in my staying in Mumbai and I have not been able to explore new places which was making me quite restlessness. But finally it’s time to pack my backpack, wear my walking shoes and hit the road again!! Yay!!  🙂
