Hotel Serenity Makadi Beach in Hurghada, Egypt

Serenity Makadi Beach

Serenity Makadi Beach is located in Makadi Bay, outside of Hurghada. It is a big hotel complex that is designed in Moroccan style. Outside the hotel, there is nothing to do, so if you want to go to Hurghada, you have to ask for a shuttle or a taxi. But why would you want to visit downtown Hurghada if you have everything you want in this beautiful hotel? read more

Hotel XO Hotels Park West in Amsterdam

XO Hotel Park West Amsterdam

For our trip to Amsterdam, we decided on taking a hotel outside the city center: XO Hotels Park West. For one, these are not so expensive and it is not so noisy compared to hotels in the center of Amsterdam. XO Hotels Park West is conveniently located right across a tram stop which brings you to the city center in about 15 minutes. You can buy tickets in the vending machines in the lobby of the hotel. The last tram leaves the city center a little past midnight. read more

Visiting the Mosel region in Germany


Geierlay suspension bridge

Because it was a Belgian holiday on Monday the 15th of August, we decided to go to Germany for 3 days, and more specifically to Cochem in the Mosel Region. On our way to Cochem, we first went to Morsdorf to see the Hängeseilbrücke Geierlay that connects Morsdorf with Sosberg. With a length of 360m, it is the longest suspension bridge of Germany. After eating a sausage, we walked about 1.5km to the bridge.  read more

Business trip to Basel

A day after I got back from Boston, I was again on the plane, now towards Basel for 2 days. Here I stayed at Hotel Rheinfelderhof. For Switzerland, this was a cheap hotel and afterwards, I regretted not taking a more expensive one. The people at the reception were friendly but the room was very small and cramped. There was no airconditioning which would have been very much appreciated with this warm weather. (The picture of the room got lost unfortunately). The first evening, I had dinner at the hotel restaurant. Here they mainly serve typical regional dishes and pasta. I decided to take the rosette pasta with Mortadella and spinach. It tasted good but the portion was a little bit too small for me.
