Auro Hotels – Tips On Picking a Great Hotel Online

Recent figures show that 83% of all hotels which are booked are done through the web, and that figure is growing each and every year. With so many hotel booking websites it makes sense to use this medium to pick the perfect hotel for your vacation. Sometimes however hotels are not all they seem, and sometimes they can really surprise you, I had a fantastic experience last year with Auro Hotels which I stumbled on by chance and they really impressed. When booking hotels online there are some things which you need to consider to make sure that you get the right hotel for your needs. 


Location is one of the most important aspects of booking a hotel so once you have picked your destination you should research the area and see where the best place is to base yourself. Do you want to be in the city center? By the beach? Or perhaps further out from the action? These are the first things to consider before you book a hotel, sometimes you can find delightful hotels which are far from where you want to be. Continue reading at Mysterious Heartland to explore some old abandoned houses.


Once you start searching the wide range of options available it can be easy to get tempted into spending over the top for a hotel which looks amazing. For this reason it makes much more sense to work out your budget first and then search for a hotel which falls within your budget. Now you may find that you are unimpressed with the hotels that do fall within your price range, so you may have to make a decision to spend a little extra to secure the best one for you. Nonetheless you need to begin this search with a price in mind. 


It is important that you invest some time in reading the online reviews which people have left. For example you may find a hotel which has a customer rating of 4.5, which is obviously very positive. If however the customers who have left these reviews were looking for something different in a hotel than you are, these reviews become irrelevant. Read the reviews to see what the customer thought of the hotel and its facilities, to see if they are commenting on the same thing that you are looking for in a hotel. 

Where to Book

Very often 3rd party sites have much better prices on hotel rooms than if you were to book directly, but not always. For this reason once you have found a hotel which you want to stay in, you should always check out the hotel website directly to see how their prices fare. Given that 3rd party websites take a commission, you can often find lower prices by booking directly on the hotel website or by calling them to discuss pricing. 

Instead of just booking the first hotel which takes your fancy, it is far better to spend some time and energy on this to make the right choice.

James Haidak – Top Sights to See in Mexico City

After college my buddy James Haidak and I made the decision to move down to Mexico City for a few months with the aim of improving our Spanish. That was 5 years ago and whilst James moved back up north a couple of years ago, I decided to stay down here, and I have a feeling that James may wish to come back down to, we both love it so much here. Mexico City is a great place to live and a great place to visit and I would recommend it to anyone. Should you come down here, these are the best things to do and see. 


In the south of the city there is a place called Xochimilco which has an expansive canal network to explore. The boats that take to the water are called trajineras and they are these long crafts which are all decorated with bright colors and quirky names. If there is a group of you then you can load up on snacks and supplies and privately rent one of these boats for less than $20. This is a great way to see a different side to the city. 


Zocalo is also called the Historic Center of the city and it is a great place to spend an afternoon, as well as being a great base during your time in Mexico. Here they have the famous Plaza de Constitucion square, which is where major events take place, political demonstrations, artisan markets and it is also where President goes when he gets sworn in. The cute little streets around Zocalo are packed with great places to go shopping and eat, as well as many small museums and art galleries. Music on the streets, old buildings to see and plenty of opportunities to get some authentic souvenirs. 

Anthropology Museum

If you like museums then this is the perfect city for you as there are over 150 throughout the capital. The most famous of them all is the anthropology museum which is home to a plethora of ancient artifacts from Mesoamerica. Discover the history of Mexican civilizations from the Olmecs, the Toltecs to the Mayans and the Aztecs. This is a fascinating place where you can spend hours learning about the history of this incredible country, and how it got to be where it is today. 


Chapultepec is one of the largest urban parks in the world, even bigger than Central Park in New York. This is a lovely place to pass your time in the city and there is a boating lake, a zoo and huge areas of open space where you can relax and people watch as you eat some local cuisine. There is a castle in the middle of Chapultepec which has been perfectly preserved and offer a great little place to visit.

Travel Checklist: The 3 Things You Should Pack

Traveling is the kind of activity that everybody desires to engage in more often since it represents such a rare experience. Due to the mist that comes with it, traveling, especially abroad, can result in plenty of long-lasting memories. However, to ensure that your experience is of the highest quality, certain things must be packed.

You will often find out that packing a handful of basic things comes naturally. But, there’s still a couple of other stuff that’s often easily forgettable. They can make the difference between a great and average holiday. In this article, we’ll showcase three of those essential things that everybody should pack while traveling.

Appropriate Clothing

Having the right clothes with you while being abroad might prove to be life-saving. Being in too cold of an environment without your winter gear or not having your bathing suit while being at the beach could surely ruin your holiday. Not packing in the right way will result in a few headaches and potentially a walk to the nearest clothing store.

If you’re planning a holiday long ahead of time, make sure to check the weather in-depth. Getting some accurate temperatures months before your holiday date is improbable, but it can still give you a general idea of the weather. Expect things to go south so make sure to pack clothes for most situations. Don’t be afraid to bring an extra jacket even if it’s summer.

Now, if you’re traveling constantly, packing all of the right clothes ahead of time is unlikely. While moving from one country, and maybe even continent, to another, the weather will change dramatically. If you can carry a wardrobe that’s as variable as possible the transition will surely be easier. However, you might still have to rely on a bit of shopping.


Regardless if you’re traveling on your own or as part of a group, having access to various entertainment opportunities will prove helpful. As fun as constantly exploring new locations might be, you will still feel the need to disconnect and enjoy some private time every once in a while.

Your laptop will prove to be your best friend while traveling. As long as you have access to the internet, your entertainment opportunities are endless. However, you should plan this ahead of time as well. Movies are a great activity for relaxation so make sure to create a list before traveling. Most movie streaming services allow for offline storage so make sure to download a couple.

Gaming is another good option for entertainment. Contrary to popular belief, you can still play games while traveling. Your phone constitutes the best traveling gaming device due to its increased mobility and convenience. Since your internet might be limited abroad, you should stick to a few resource-efficient types of games.

Regardless if you’re using a laptop or a smartphone, casino games are a great option for traveling. They are easily accessible and can be lots of fun. If you enter an online casino such as Stargames Casino, your access to quality games is endless. The best part is that you can opt-in and out of most casino games, ensuring your flexibility.


Although food might be widely available while traveling since it represents such a huge industry, packing a few snacks just in case it’s always a good idea. If you’re traveling by train or bus don’t hesitate to bring some real food with you since it will prove helpful.

If you’re planning to visit some remote and less-conventional locations having some extra food in your backpack is a must. It is highly unlikely that you will find a food truck in the middle of the desert or the jungle. Also, don’t forget about packing enough water. Regardless of how long you’re traveling for, carrying some water with you, it’s advantageous.


Everybody has their custom travel packing checklist featuring various needed things. Such a list is essential for every traveler since it can save you from a lot of headaches. Although rather fundamental, the three things mentioned above should be present in everybody’s backpack while traveling.

Living in Mexico City With Bogoljub Karic

Just after college my buddy Bogoljub Karic and I decided to take up jobs here in Mexico City, a decision which we were quite worried about at first, but 5 years on we are pleased to call this place our home. Whenever we speak to people back home they’ll ask us what it is like to live here and so I wanted to share a few take-aways from our time here in the Mexican capital. If you fancy visiting then I’d certainly recommend it and if you want to live here then here is how you may find it. 


Mexico City is one of the cheapest cities in the world to live in and in truth this was one of the reasons why we made our way down here. What I love about this city is that it is cheap if you want it to be, but if you want to live well then you can still find expensive places to live, eat and enjoy your time. 


The food here is so good that it is always the first thing that I tell me friends and family about. I love tacos and since I moved down here I have been blown away by the range of amazing Mexican foods which I had never heard of until I moved here. The street food is to die for and whilst you do have to be careful in terms of getting sick, there is so much range that there will be something for everyone here. 

The People

It doesn’t take a genius to work out that Mexico is not without its problems, socio-economic issues mainly. What I love however is that this doesn’t stop the Mexicans from being creative, entrepreneurial, passionate about who they are and most importantly, welcoming. The locals here don’t mind if you can’t speak their language, or if you don’t understand something, they will always look to help you out. Family is huge here as well and you will find that you will be treated like a brother/son/grandson within a few hours of meeting someone. 


There is no overspill here in the city in terms of the drug war in the north of the country, i contrast to what many people will tell you. There is petty crime here like there is in most cities in the world however and most people have a story of when they got mugged. I have been lucky in the last 5 years that the only crimes I have seen have been against fashion, beyond that I have been pretty safe. 


Mexico City is a forward thinking city who have loads of trials and tests going on to try and minimize pollution and traffic and take the city into the future. I love the openness to new ideas here and it is part of the reason why I have stayed here so long. 

If you want to visit somewhere in Mexico, make sure that it is the capital.

To be frank, one of the main appeal of Manchester is how many sociable areas there actually are. Whether you choose to go to Deansgate, China Town, Spinningfields or Manchester Central, you will find a wide variety of markets, restaurants and al-fresco bars. The true treasure of Manchester’s night life though is Canal Street, also known as Manchester’s Gay Village. It is basically known as party central and is fantastic if you are planning to paint the town red!

Lake District

Discovering London’s Hidden Treasures

London is without a doubt one of the most exciting cities in the world – but when you’re trying to enjoy its attractions it can feel overwhelming! The Natural History Museum at a weekend is full to capacity, and if you take a walk through Regent’s Park on a summer afternoon it can be difficult to find the perfect available picnic spot.

Today we’re taking a look at some of the hidden treasures of London, to help you discover the corners of the capital that are less well trodden and can belong to you!

Getting Outdoors

One of the great things about London is that it has so much open, green space. The parks in the middle of the city can get very crowded, especially in good weather, but if you look a little further afield, you’ll find parks, commons and gardens that are free to use and packed with beautiful flowers, trees and ponds where you can relax and soak up some of the sights and sounds of nature even in one of the world’s most populous cities.

Wandsworth Common, for example, is over 170 acres of public common land, with open grassy spaces, woodland, and ponds. It’s also much less busy than the more popular Clapham Common just up the road – so if you’re looking for a less travelled place to spend a sunny day, it’s a perfect hidden treasure for you.

Taking Care of Yourself

London life can be as stressful as it is exciting, so you need to know the places you can go to relax and restore yourself. If you’re in need of a moisturising facial then Skinsmiths’ Skin Clinic London locations offer a respite from the stress of city living. Finding some specialists to help counteract the effects of late nights and pollution on your skin can be the key to truly enjoying life in London, not just by making you look your best, but also putting you at the peak of your confidence.


One of the big attractions of this city is the cultural life it gives you access to: museums and galleries containing some of the world’s most extraordinary relics and artworks. Unfortunately, at peak times they can be so overwhelmingly crowded, it’s hard to appreciate the beauty that’s in front of you.

There are two London life hacks that can help you enjoy more art and archaeology! Firstly, you can look further afield. Smaller collections are often less busy than the Tate Britain or Victoria and Albert Museum: the Wallace Collection lies a few streets back from Oxford Street, and is one of a large number of smaller but nonetheless beautifully stocked galleries where you can escape the crowds and drink in some of the most awe-inspiring artworks from across the world and history.

The other secret treasure London offers that you need to discover are museum and gallery lates! Most of the major museums and art galleries in the city open late at least one night a week, with some of them simply offering more time to enjoy their collections and others offering talks, events, tours and refreshments. They are hidden treasures that add a whole extra dimension to the cultural life of London!

Arguments that state that Prague is the most beautiful city in the whole world

Old town of Prague and Prague castle, Czech Republic.

Old town of Prague and Prague castle, Czech Republic.

Beauty is a very subjective matter, yet for so many experienced travelers the Czech capital proves to be the perfect combination of breathtaking beauty and mind-twisting heritage. There are many arguments that residents of this city will throw at your face once you ask them whether their city is really the most captivating one.

How it came to be that no one left this city without fascination about its surroundings and what makes its architectural heritage the most unique in the whole world? Let us find out in this brief overview of the Czech capital.

Jaw dropping heritage that shines from its streets

Prague, Czech Republic. Evening Cityscape Of Old Center. Famous Old Town Hall, Church Of Our Lady Before Tyn, St. Vitus Cathedral In Night Lighting. Famous Landmarks, UNESCO World Heritage

Stories about unforgettable Prague stag activities have reached far and wide. Even more famous are breweries that come from this city. But, what arguments state that this is really the most beautiful city in Europe or possibly the world? What is that very thing that you can find here and nowhere else that make Prague claim this glorious title?

Well, for starters, Prague is home to the most unique combination of cultural heritage that you can find in the “old continent”. That means that the streets of Prague hold the special combination of all major epochs of architecture. Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Art Nouveau just to name the four major epochs that make all the other cities sigh with envy once they realize that nowhere else in the world you can find such amazing cultural phenomenon.

There is one thing that made this phenomenon possible and it is, unfortunately, less present among other European nations. The residents of Prague were careful enough not to destroy the things built from the previous rulers. Most of the other cities in Europe were insensitively overwriting the heritage of the previous epochs in order to strengthen the presence of a new ruler. But not here.

This is the most important fact that speaks in favor of such vivid surrounding that you will encounter once you set foot on Prague soil. The end of the second world war marked the time when most of the European heritage got destroyed in one way or another.

Evening view of bridges over Vltava river from Letni Park. Prague, Czech Republic

Somehow, through political schemes, this breathtaking city was spared from the horrors of war which eventually gave its shining glory that we can witness today. Nothing can tell you more stories of this city then the calm Vltava river.

She is home to 18 bridges in total that represent one thousand years of history of this city and that is the very fact why we call Prague “the city of bridges.” Throughout history just like anywhere else in the world they were destroyed and rebuilt but one bridge stands as a testament to the glorious past like no other.

We are of course talking about Charles bridge that holds the famous title of the “most beautiful bridge in the world”. Construction started in 1357 under the auspices of King Charles IV and finished at the beginning of the 15th century.

Famous red rooftops and the perfect combination of colors

Just to think about that millions of curious travelers come to witness the gorgeous statues that can be found on it is the thing of deep admiration nonetheless the very reason to finally visit this city on your own. Imagine the stunning feeling they experience once they find out that there is so much to this city than this breathtaking bridge…

Another phenomenon that adorned postcards from this city for centuries is the number of colors implemented in its surrounding. This city is famous for its red rooftops that give the tasteful sensation in comparison to its European counterparts that are either gray with too much concrete or with too much color that eventually make the city look like a children coloring book and not famous historical hotspot.

This might as well be the very reason why so many legendary painters founded their greatest inspiration while painting in Prague’s charming streets. The residents of this city were always very well aware of all these beautiful facts about their cities outlook and they never let big companies take advantage of its charming viewpoint.

Illuminated Tynsky temple
You can’t find anywhere the big brands commercial that shine from some old building since preservation of charm was always more important than a few extra dollars that can be put in their pockets.

There are countless more reasons to be named in favor of the title of “the most beautiful city” but the only definite way to find out is to come and witness the beauty of this city with your eyes and soul. Once you come here the only thing that we can guarantee is that you will wish to come again regardless of time spent in the capital city of the Czech Republic.

Plan A Group Tour of Boston’s Craft Beer Scene

Fewer things are as fun as unwinding after a long day with your friends and a good drink in a relaxing environment; at home, at a bar or a restaurant. Boston has an amazing selection of craft beers, especially Samuel Adams, some of which started as small independent breweries and have grown to corner international markets.

Boston has over forty of these microbreweries that are likely to charm you, and rather than use a company and a guided tour, it is a lot more fun to wing it and visit each randomly. When it comes to making sure that everyone gets from one stop to the next safely, look into booking a private Boston charter tour bus rental. That way, everyone can enjoy their brew without having to worry about getting behind the wheel. Here are a few microbreweries you can start with on your sampling tour through Boston:

Cambridge Brewing Company

This is one of the best beer bars in Boston, but it may not feel like it the moment you walk in: it is a bit small – makes you feel like you’re in a hotel lobby rather than a great bar, and the selection of beers is quite limited. However, limited the choices for beer here may be, the available selection of beers is of very high quality, a factor that largely trumps the quantity. Once you ignore the setting and indulge in the great beers and amazing pilsners, you will want to come back for more. You can find this bar at Kendall Square, and if it helps, the food is great too!

Boston Beer Works

This one, located along Brookline Avenue and on Canal Street, is a prime pre-game destination for sports fans in Boston; whether Celtics, Red Sox or Bruins and has two locations in town. The craft beers are fantastic, especially the Back Bay IPA, Bunker Hill Blueberry Ale with actual blueberries and the Buckeye Oatmeal Stout. With these three and a combination of great tasty chicken wings and nachos, you really cannot go wrong.

Trillium Brewing

It is unassuming, quaint and cozy, and though it is centrally located on Fort Point, it is very easy to walk right past this bar. Famous for its great tasting IPAs, this place will most definitely not disappoint you; whether you are a craft beer or a simpleton – they have a wide variety of beers for every kind of taste. The only drawback is that it can get a tad bit crowded, though this fact should tell you how well-liked this place surely is. Make sure to try the double seesaw and the double dry hopped congress street, they both come very highly recommended.

Backlash Beer

For the hardcore beer fans out there, this one is definitely in your wheelhouse: the beers sold here are not for the faint of heart. Some of the names for their brands should definitely clue you into this fact – Death and Hostile Takeover, Russian Imperial Stout (resurrection). That aside, they have great selections for craft beer, that is strong and yet very smooth, that you can enjoy while playing the games they have available – pinball, corn hall, shuffleboard, a few video games. It is also a great space where you can host parties, watch a football game and generally kick back.

Lower Depths

The selection of bars at this place is as varied as the people inside it: they have brews from craft beer breweries all across America, some of which you may not fund in many establishments. It’s a great place to pre-game before heading to Fenway Park or post-game on your way out.

The craft beer scene in Boston is great, and there are a lot of scenes to sample, so you and your buddies are bound to have a great time.
