More Appealing Than Staying In A Hotel Room

I have always wanted to travel to Europe, especially Spain. Why Spain you may ask? I love beaches and places like Barcelona, Ibiza or Costa have some of the most beautiful scenery and beaches I have found. One of the things I always ask myself when I travel is “where should I stay?” I mean hotels are nice, but sometimes I prefer more privacy or the ability to prepare the meals for me and my family. So I find myself looking for lodging apartments in the locations I want to travel to.

If I decide to go to Barcelona, not only do I want to see the beaches but I want to see Antonio Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia, one of the most unique churches in the world. A day sightseeing in Barcelona or a day spent at the beach, may be enjoyable yet, tiring and what better place to retire for the evening than an apartment where you can feel at home. The idea of being able to “spread out” and not being cramped in a hotel room is nice. There are four of us, me, my husband and our two daughters, so for us, being able to rent lodging apartment is more appealing than staying the four of us sharing a hotel room.

We can save on the cost of food by preparing our own meals and not eating in a restaurant for every meal. Of course we will want to sample the local cuisine and local restaurants, but the idea of being able to cook our favorite foods is also appealing. So when we travel, my husband normally leaves the selection of where we stay up to me. We have stayed in both hotels and have rented apartments, and by far we prefer to rent the apartments. It gives us privacy from our kids when we want and we don’t feel cramped in a single hotel room.

    Honestly, I don’t like staying in hotels. I’m not home in it and not to mention super expensive. I prefer Bed and Breakfast and family owned lodging houses.

  2. Lodging apartment is preferable especially if you have kids traveling with you.

    friends told me na if you’re in spain eh para ka lang nasa Pinas. Yes, Sagrada familia is amust see place there. It is a UN Heritage site eh, if I am not mistaken.

  4. I always wanted to visit Spain. I believe that most of my ancestors live there and I happen to have a Spanish blood. 😀

    But I agree, living in the apartment can make you feel like you’re at home away from home. You can cook and prepare the meals, and just feel comfortable. 😀

  5. I would love to explore Spain too Mommy and staying in an apartment will save you money than staying in a hotel. You can also cook your own meal too 🙂

    An apartment would be more practical if you’re staying for long, like 2 weeks or more, would surely save up a lot too. From experience, hotels would be much better for shorter stays.
