We love luxury hotels. Whether we are traveling as a couple or a family we always look for somewhere luxurious to stay. But what makes a hotel luxurious?
Wandermust Daddy and I have very different opinions about what makes a luxurious hotel. For him it’s all about the shower. For me it’s all about the bath. But we both agree that open bathrooms with a view are the bees knees!

Recently we went to lunch at Mainland China after seeing so many good reviews on Twitter. So did it live up to the hype?
Firstly I have to say that when we entered we were taken aback by the lovely and very tasteful decor. It was much Slicker than I had expected. I even quite liked the glass dragon light and waterfall feature at the reception.
But the main reason I was there was for the food. I LOVE Chinese food, in particularly I love British style Chinese food which is completely different in my opinion to American Chinese which seems to be the main offering in Doha outside of hotels so I had been keen to try somewhere new!
We started with some assorted appetisers. Prawn dim sum, crab wontons and duck rolls which were all outstandingly good. I would say the best dim sum outside of hakkasan in Doha.

I am going to start with a disclaimer – that despite the sheer number of superlatives I am about to use in this review, I promise I have no affliation to the hotel nor did I receive a complimentary stay or freebies in an exchange for this review! I paid for everything during this trip out of my own pocket but it is literally the best place I have been! View Post

Sometimes you visit somewhere where you wish you could stay longer. This was the feeling we had when we left Ndali Lodge Uganda in the Fort Portal area of the Rwenzori Mountains. View Post
I am one of those people who will use any excuse to travel, so I hopped on the idea of Babymoons with great enthusiasm. We had a few as you will see in the posts to come as we wanted to try a variety of baby moon destination. The first of these was in Muscat, the lovely capital of Oman. Oman is only a short hop from our base in Doha and has a noticeably cooler climate making it a perfect retreat from the searing Doha sun.
