I really do love Booking.com

A different blog post for today, but figured I’d share since I can honestly say that I love Booking.com, and you can get 10% back for travelling with them.

As you can tell from my travel articles on Milliver’s Travels, I love traveling! In any form. Road trips/one day trips are the most convenient at the moment, but I do like longer stays as well. And for the latter, I need accommodation too, of course.
So far, I have used Booking.com’s services four times and all the places I’ve stayed at were exactly as advertised – nice, clean, and the hosts were lovely and helpful people. I also have a New Years trip planned and already booked my stay for that.
I usually travel with my boyfriend by car, so every one of these four times, I loved that the properties were in safe areas, easy to find upon arrival and, except one, were very close to the town center which meant we were able to leave our car in the parking lot and walk everywhere throughout our stay. We have a total of 127,91 km of walking done during our latest trip!
What I especially love is that one can find properties and book them, with free cancellation. Given we live in the real world and plans sometimes get put on hold, it was such a relief to be able to cancel three bookings so far without having to explain to someone that colleagues booked their holidays on top of ours, or an emergency came up, or what ever else. I could simply book again for a later date, no questions asked and no money lost.

As they themselves say, on Booking.com you can book the perfect getaway in 229 countries and territories. From chic hotels, cosy apartment rentals and safari lodges to dreamy beach villas… you name it, they’ve got it!

If you book using this link, you’ll get 10% back after your trip.

 

PS: I am not an affiliate, but I can get $15 for referring you, after your stay.

Three beautiful gardens at Hampton Court Palace

I was very lucky to have been able to travel to Kingston Upon Thames three times for work these past three years, and one of those times I was also lucky to get to walk through Hampton Court Palace’s world-famous gardens.

Head on over to Milliver’s Travels to find out from my travel article, “A Glance at Three of Hampton Court Palace’s World-Famous Gardens”, which three gardens have filled my heart with so much beauty and joy!

Time for busting myths

Back in 2016, I attended the TEDxCluj event organized at the Florin Piersic cinema in downtown Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Its theme was myth busting and there were several interesting topics to listen to.

To see the picture I took of the sign stuck on the washroom door (it’s totally worth it!), visit Milliver’s Travels and read my travel article about it, “Funky Signs: Mythbusting at TEDxCluj”.

A scenic running event

I re-discovered the Romulus Vuia Etnographic Park during the Hoia Cross this year, which was the perfect reason for me to visit the outdoor museum for the first time in about twenty years!

Come on over to Milliver’s Travels and read my travel article about it, “Running through the Romulus Vuia Ethnographic Park, Cluj Napoca, Romania”.

When Google Maps fails you

Today, over on Milliver’s Travels, I talk about a (now) funny story of how Google Maps failed me when asking it to navigate my boyfriend and I toward a drip stone cave we wanted to visit.

Head on over to read my story, The Looong Way to Zichy Cave, and check out the long detour, some travel bummers, what traffic looks like on village roads, and find out how the whole adventure turned into one of the most scenic routes we drove lately.

Things to see in one day of visiting Bratislava

During our trip to Hungary last Summer, the BF and I took a one-day trip to Bratislava. We liked it so much, that I wrote a travel article about it.

Head on over to Milliver’s Travels and read “What to see on a day-trip to Bratislava”. Can you spot the flying saucer?

Chopper parking only!

Last Friday, over on Milliver’s Travels, I talked about this funky sign I saw and had the good idea to photograph.

Head on over to read my story, Funky Signs: Chopper Parking Only!, and see picture proof of one of the coolest knights in existence in my hometown of Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
