Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel

Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel

Have a Magical Day!

This is how they greet you here in Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel and Resort. You might smirk at first, but the truth is, it is kind of magical around here. All the little details inside and outside the hotel; the castle like building, the maze, hidden mickeys, will definitely draw smiles from the grumpiest person.

Fairytale Town of Sintra

Fairytale Town of Sintra

Located just a stone’s throw away from Lisbon is the quaint little town of Sintra. In my opinion, this is one of the best places to go outside of Lisbon if you are interested in Romantic Architecture of the 19th Century, or simply because you are after a day trip from Lisbon to escape the modern city.
