Accommodations in Egypt (Part II): Reviewing 1 Night at Malkata House in Luxor

One word, breathtaking. I wish that we were able to stay here more than one night. This is one of the most beautiful housing accommodations I’ve stayed in. I’ll fill this post, and my upcoming Egypt Photo Dump, with pictures so you can see them for yourself. This review will be based on a total of 4 criteria: service, location, space, and cost. Let’s get into it.

Accommodations in Egypt: Reviewing 5 Nights at Gardenia Inn in Giza

If you’ve ever stumbled upon travel photos of tourists in Egypt, you’ve had to have seen the iconic hot tub photo. I’m referring to the girls in the hot tub with their backs facing the camera, usually with a champagne glass or mug in one hand, and the large window directly in front of them, with a clear view of the Giza Pyramids. It’s iconic.

A Short Series: Returning Home for One Amazing Week – St. Lucia, Eastern Caribbean

I started 2022 strong. In the first month of the year, I was able to take two vacations back to back. Before we get into it, I know I just completed my St. Lucia series not too long ago for my trip there in 2021. In January, I rushed back, thinking my sister would begin college and move abroad later that month. This trip was meant to give us a chance to enjoy touristy things around the island together that we have not. Though her start date was postponed to the upcoming semester, this trip was not made in vain. There is not much I enjoy more than spending time with my loved ones and being home.

A Short Series: 4 Day Trip to Dallas Fort Worth

I began the year strong, targeting one of my travel resolutions for 2022. I visited a new state, Texas. Dallas Fort Worth. A brief four-day trip to attend the wedding of a family friend. Yes, yet another wedding. There was little time to do much else as this was our sole objective for this quick trip. Because of this, I won’t be doing my typical travel itinerary. I’ve selected one restaurant to review and one experience that I’ll be diving into below, everything in one post.

St. Lucia Series: An Adventurous Afternoon of ATV’ing with Island ATV

Okay, I know. This post is long overdue. I have yet to complete my St. Lucia series from my 2021 trip, and I have already been home for 2022 as I am writing this. However! This is the last post to complete the itinerary. As usual, my blog has taken a back burner to my studies. Let me squeeze this in before we head to mid-April.

Island Breeze Review

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

If there is one thing I deeply loathe, it is publishing a possibly damaging blog post about a negative experience in the country that I am proud to call home. It has the potential to make it back to locals and travelers who contemplate giving this establishment business, allowing others to form an opinion of a restaurant based on my poor experience. With that expressed, it’s just as meaningful to share these unfavorable incidents.

Oasis 101 Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Over the past year or two, Oasis has become the perfect hangout spot for young locals. With unbelievable food and drinks and an addicting ambiance, it’s not difficult to understand why. As I typically do, I’ll be categorizing this review into three sections: the environment, food and drinks, and service.

Frydays Restaurant and Bar Review

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

There is just something about having a meal cooked to perfection without leaving a dent in your pockets. They say eating well is a form of self-respect, and I respect myself. This small restaurant pleasantly surprised me with its savory courses. Located perfectly along the route of Gros Islet’s street party, this establishment is worth paying a visit to anyone in its vicinity. Apart from the hiccups with the service received by our waitress, there was little to no improvement necessary in other elements of the experience. As expected, I have separated this restaurant review into three categories: atmosphere, food and drinks, and service. Let’s get into it!

Keebee’s Bar & Grill Review

Remember when I stated that my St. Lucia itinerary was a 75% reduction of the time but encompassed all ventures and establishments visited? That modification led me to decrease the number of times that I listed the same restaurants. I won’t expose myself saying precisely how many times I visited but grasp that it was not sufficient. Our waitress, Whitney, was comical and made each visit an experience.

Café La Casona San Benito Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I’m beginning to feel as if it’s habitual for me to start each post with something along the lines of, “this visit came unexpectedly.” But did I lie? On our final day in El Salvador, we dropped off my sister at the airport. As we were up early, with two hours of driving under our belt, our stomachs were on E. The four of us proceeded to a hotel buffet-style breakfast. Of course, we were uninterested. It was still early, and restaurants nearby remained closed. We began to view various alternatives, taking into account the drive to the food.
