Hotel Heaven with Europe’s Most Beautiful Hotels

Kick your trip to Europe up a notch by staying in a hotel from this list of the most beautiful hotels that have to be seen to be believed.

So you’re going to Europe and you don’t feel like staying in a hostel with twenty stinky travelers and a wonderful view of Europe’s most eye-popping dumpster. Well maybe kick your stay up a notch and stay in one of these lavish hotels so you can spend your nights enjoying the view and not clutching your passport.

 

Monastero Santa Rosa (Amalfi Coast, Italy)

The views of the Tyrrhenian Sea is stunningly beautiful from high above the legendary Amalfi Coast. This hotel is on top of a limestone cliff a thousand feet above the Tyrrhenian Sea so the views are unreal.

The hotel is actually a monastery from the 17th-century that has been converted so the building lives up to the views. The monastery has been restored magnificently and is a pleasure to spend time in. The heated infinity pool on the edge of the cliff is not to be missed, although I don’t think that was part of the original monastery.

 

Four Season Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet (Istanbul)

This hotel was Istanbul’s first prison but is now a luxurious hotel that will have you dying to get locked up.

The hotel is next to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, and Topkapi Palace so there are endless things to do right outside of your cell. I’m just kidding, there are no cells, just 65 beautiful rooms decorated with original Turkish artwork and kilim rugs making your stay here truly a delight.

 

Mystique (Santorini, Greece)

This hotel has rooms that are carved into the side of a cliff. Pretty cool, right? Also, since you’re in Santorini, of course, the views are unreal.

Hit up the infinity pool and swim up to the pool bar so you can drink and pee at the same time, all while watching a glorious sunset over the Aegean Sea.

 

The Peninsula Paris (Paris)

In 1928 a fella by the name of George Gershwin wrote “An American in Paris” at this very hotel when it was called the Hotel Majestic. In 2015 The Peninsula Paris opened after they spent four years and $850-million to restore this hotel to its former awe-inspiring self.

Not only are there 200 amazing rooms, but there is a giant spa, a beautiful indoor swimming pool and even a rooftop restaurant with a beautiful view of the city.

 

Cliveden House (Berkshire England)

Get out of London and take a weekend in the astonishing English countryside at this gorgeous hotel.

This place has one of those hedge mazes that you’ve seen in movies but never thought actually existed. There’s also a walled garden that has a pool in it. Cha-ching!

The rooms are all named after someone from the house’s past like Henry James, Lady Astor and even the Prince of Wales and the rooms are decorated to match the name. Talk about relaxing English style.

Ashford Castle (Cong, Ireland)

Come stay in Ireland’s oldest castle. They built this place in 1228 just for you. When you think of a castle, you think of a pretty majestic place and you would be right. They have it all marble, silk, chandeliers and more that’s sure to make you feel like part of a royal family. Not only are you just staying in a castle, you’re also on the shores of Lough Corrib which is Ireland’s second largest lake. A castle on a lake, not too shabby.

Rescue Dogs Saved By An Ethical Circus

the Midnight Circus in the Park decided to ditch the exotic animals for something a little more humane, rescued dogs.

Published

Circuses have gotten a bad rap lately for their abuse of animals. The people working there can have the best intentions, but when it comes to traveling with elephants and lions and bears it is kind of hard to do so respectfully to the animals. Elephants weren’t made to travel in a circus, they are very smart creatures who deserve our respect. Animal rights groups have noticed the poor care of these amazing animals and decided to protest circuses whenever they come into town. This hurts the circus’s attendance and leaves a bad taste in everyone’s mouth. That is why the Midnight Circus in the Park decided to ditch the exotic animals for something a little more humane, rescued dogs.

The Midnight Circus in the Park which is based in Chicago threw a show in an effort to raise money for the hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico. The circus shocked viewers by bringing out two beautiful pit bulls who performed flawlessly. Junebug and Rosie Rae helped reverse the negative stigma associated with pit bulls and dazzled the crowd with some unbelievable entertainment. This isn’t the first time the Midnight Circus in the Park has used pit bulls as performers, there was one named Lola who started the whole thing back in 2013.

The ringmaster of the Midnight Circus is Jeff Jenkins and he loves pit bulls as a breed. He is an advocate for pit bulls and has loved these dogs for a long time. Before running this circus Jeff Jenkins worked for the Ringling Brothers which has gotten a lot of flack for mistreating animals in the past. Jeff decided to take the negative connotation away from circuses and pit bulls as well. Now they are no longer mistreating animals, but in fact, rehabilitating them.

 

When Jeff is not working in the circus he works as the head trainer in the American Humane Society’s “End Dogfighting” campaign and it was working here that gave him the brilliant idea to incorporate dogs into his circus. He met the dog Junebug when a boy brought the dog to class and Jeff could tell that she was being poorly treated. The boy loved the dog and did not want to give it up, but Jeff offered the boy a deal, if Jeff could take care of Junebug then the boy could be a class assistant. This position was highly-sought after so the boy couldn’t say no.

Jeff took his new friend as well as Rosie Rae whom he adopted from a shelter and started to train them together. He put time and effort into turning them into seasoned circus performers who were just as loving and affectionate as any other dog. The only times the dogs have messed up have been when they stole a kernel or two of popcorn from a kid sitting in the front row. Other than that, they’re showing everyone just how sweet this breed can be and how fun and responsible this man’s awesome circus is.

Britons Get Stuck Abroad Due to COVID-19 Travel Restrictions

Published

Britons get stuck offshore as they await the lifting of the recently imposed travel ban to and from the UK.

Many Britons get stuck abroad due to the recent travel bans imposed. Worries related to taxes, jobs, and Brexit get exacerbated as UK residents are forced to have lengthier stays in their current locations.

As more and more nations start imposing travel restrictions to and from the United Kingdom, more and more Britons get stuck in their present locations offshore. To halt the spread of the recently pinpointed highly communicable strain of COVID-19 virus, UK travel has come into a standstill.

23-year-old Heather Alder, a resident of Edinburg, went to Aarhus, Denmark with her fiancé last week. They had to visit her fiancé’s father and take him to do several tests for cancer. Alder and her fiancé were planning to go back to the UK this week but are now stuck in a farmhouse in Denmark due to the recent travel ban. “Even if the travel ban is lifted in a few days or weeks, we don’t know whether we can leave and we don’t know whether we can get back in easily,” Alder mentions.

Alder was able to secure a new job last month and she is grateful that her new boss has been so kind as to allow her to travel to Denmark. “My father-in-law’s house is about as remote as Denmark gets, so we’ve had to install new WIFI in order to be able to work from here. My boss has been wonderful about it all, but my partner is studying and working part-time for a Danish company, but pays tax in the UK. If we get stuck here for longer, we might have to report it, and he could end up having to pay tax in Denmark, where income tax is at 48%. This would have a big impact on our finances. It’s very stressful,” she shares.

The Brexit deadline is on 31 December 2020 and Alder does not know whether or not she will have to apply for a Denmark visa in case she will be forced to stay in the country for a longer period of time. “It’s very concerning that on top of everything, I now need to sort out my status here before Brexit. Due to Christmas closures, that means submitting documentation so I can apply as an EU citizen for the right to stay by 23 December. Nobody seems to have an answer as to what Britons in Denmark should do in the new year. Obviously, all our documents are in the UK, where we can’t return, which is making the whole process maddening and extremely worrying. The combination of Brexit and coronavirus has turned what was already a difficult situation into an unmanageable one,” Alder says.

The recent travel bans have caused further strain on many UK residents who are presently out of the country. Many of them complain about the need to go back to the UK in time for the resumption of work after the holidays. Nonetheless, Britons get stuck abroad and have to deal with the necessity of securing extended visas in their present locations and seek ways to do virtual ‘work-from-home’ arrangements while awaiting the lifting of the said travel ban.
