What the?

A travel blog entry by mariarobbins

Not only is it very good for you when you're having issues with your stomach, it's also very thirst quenching. Before we left I went to the bathroom, which was very tiny. Not only was I a foot taller than the stalls, but there was no space between the seat and door! Oh oops, I mean the toilet with NO seat, ...

Day - 52 A full day tour

A travel blog entry by jayandbob

This is a top pick!

... at our hotel nearly got our tour, as we were walking out to the foyer this older couple were getting on our bus, they felt pretty stupid when we turned up with the paperwork saying we had pre paid the tour, although by the end of the day I wouldn't have minded if they took our place.
