Flying high in the clouds while reading John Greens "looking for Alaska" was incredibly calming and got me eager for landing. We had a friendly pilot named Philip who tended to crack a bad joke over the intercom after announcements, which seemed to keep the aviophobiasts relatively calm and chirpy.

... literally look magical. It looks like something you'd only see on a painting or a postcard but when you're standing there and looking at it in the flesh it really is something else.

Walking into the entrance I could tell instantly I was in a well credited hotel. All faculties from the pool and sauna to the courtyard were highly maintained and really appetising. I was even more surprised when I was greeted by very pleasant staff and appointed to my room , which was incredibly classy.
