Breakfast was great, Mac, but you can't beat the view! Fortunately no large carnivores found us while we were enjoying this break.

It was a special trip. You likely recognize the Oscar in one of the photos, digging in. Miss you and the gang in Spokane as well, but life in Calgary is nice and the nearby Rockies incredible!

Been to this restaurant...loved it! Great home made food, great service, good portions and reasonable prices. Not to mention going there is a nice getaway from the hustle and bustle from the huge Vegas casinos. The next time I'm in Las Vegas, I will definitely be going back there. Thanks for this blog Fumblefinger.

Re: How do you see Airbnb? The Times keeps track.

Travel Rob ·
I've noticed the press in general is more positive in their reporting for companies such as Airbnb and TripAdvisor when they became mainstream.

Re: How do you see Airbnb? The Times keeps track.

PHeymont ·
In the beginning, it wasn't so much not positive, as puzzled by what this strange new thing was. All the early articles try to explain by comparing with hotels, couch-surfing, etc. These days, things are often described as being "Airbnb-like." One of those Times articles, in late '09 or early '10, was the first I had noticed and it was a revelation, because we simply don't like hotel rooms. We love being able to be in two or more rooms, and do some cooking and feel like we're living...

The NY Times wasn't so much negative, but I remember reports elsewhere that were strongly negative .I'm just not seeing the quanity of those negative stories .

Re: How do you see Airbnb? The Times keeps track.

PortMoresby ·
The most negative feelings I've seen expressed online directed at Airbnb have been on forums, almost all from those not adventuresome enough to try it but who consider themselves "in the know". I think it must be terribly frustrating for those who'd like us to think they know everything, but who know nothing but hearsay about what's really become a movement. I've been verbally turned on when I've posted anything positive, accused of shilling for the site, among other imaginary sins. I always...

Re: Eating our way through Istanbul (Part 2)

GarryRF ·
That was an amazing tour of gastronomic delights Paul. It takes some courage to indulge in something we don't recognise. But on a tour designed for tourists you know you'll be safe. So now you've acquired a taste for fish lets hope you continue indulging. You must have tried the Baklava ? Makes searching out a Turkish bakery worthwhile. And all that variety in winter too. My friends are in Turkey today and they're still waiting for spring to arrive !

Re: Eating our way through Istanbul (Part 2)

PHeymont ·
Of course we tried the baklava...several places, several flavors and more... Which gives me a moment to mention something I forgot in the blog...chicken-breast pudding, or tavuk göğsü. On Wednesday, Katerina mentioned it, and joked that people make faces when they hear about it. Didn't sound so odd to me. On Friday, Senem brought one to the table so we could try it...and it basically was a protein-enriched blanc mange. The chicken is boiled and separated into fine fibers and mixed with milk,...

Re: Pancakes, Bacon & WiFi: what travelers want

DrFumblefinger ·
I'm not very surprised that free breakfast and free wifi are important to travelers. Given a choice, I'd rather have the wifi than breakfast. I use my computer a lot and the freedom wifi gives me to go about my business is critical to my travels. I don't book rooms that lack wifi anymore.

Hawthorn Suites on Westwood Blvd. Orlando do a great breakfast ! Pity they don't do WiFi too.

Breakfasts have improved at American hotels, but are nowhere near the quality of what most European hotels have to offer. There it's worth looking at tripadvisor reviews to see who comments on the quality of breakfast.

Re: Best free hotel breakfast? Survey says Embassy Suites

GarryRF ·
There are a few breakfast items that most Europeans aren't keen on. Waffles - Muffins - Cinnamon Bread - Maple Syrup - Grape Jelly - Margarine - Turkey Bacon - Pretzels - Granola and Tea made with water that's not at the boil. Stuff we don't buy at home. Stuff we don't see in the food stores.
