Accommodation Made Easy With Online Booking

TRAVEL KNOWS NO BOUNDS...
Well, that is what my friends say to me to me every now and then.  Now looking back, I guess they are right in a way.

In October 2015, I fell and fractured my leg, just two days before my trip to Europe.  I was contemplating whether to go or not initially and eventually I did, my right leg in a cast and on a wheelchair from the day I boarded the flight to Amsterdam and spending the next three weeks in Scotland and some parts of Europe.  It was quite an adventure for me to be able to tour so many places on a wheelchair and hopping around whenever necessary.  The trip was made possible and enjoyable through my son's meticulous booking on flights, train tickets and accommodation during our three weeks tour.

Our first destination was Aberdeen and after spending two weeks there, we flew to Amsterdam for two nights.  From there, we took a train ride to Frankfurt, then Paris and Brussels.  We spent around ten days in these four countries and everything ran smoothly, thank God. Despite my handicap, this trip was my most memorable one, for I did not do any walking at all, just some hoppings around the apartments.  When we were on trams or trains, there was no inconvenience at all for the disables, in fact, everywhere we went, all were disable friendly.  Somehow we managed to tour these few countries without any hassle despite the fact, I could not walk at all.

After recuperating for almost nine months, I could walk properly again.  I made another trip to UK, this time we toured around London, Cardiff, Oxford and then back to Aberdeen again.  Before we went for this trip, I did some "homework" online, I assisted my son to look for accommodations while we were in England and Wales.  One of the websites I find helpful and informative is www.hostelz.com.  It has 44201 listings in 6963 cities!  All I have to do is to type in the place I want to stay and from there, just key in the dates of checking in and out. So easy!  Hotels, hostels, apartments with reviews were all displayed, so detailed and informative, I could say.

I love Cardiff, I told my son that I would love to visit that place again, oh yes, Bath too!  Such a lovely place.  I do not have to follow group tours anymore, I can do my own "research" online, just a few clicks away and I am spoil for choices on lodging and accommodation.  Hmmm... Let me think, where shall I go in 2017?  :)
