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.

This is a monthly feature to let you know where we are travelling to in the following month.

That being said in October we will be in

The Wandermust Family
Everybody said that travel would change and in the worst cases stop as soon as we had a baby! We were very prepared for the change but were never going to stop. So how has travel changed in now we have an almost six month old?
The truth is …
In many ways it hasn’t! It has actual surprised us how little it has changed. So what are the ways it has and hasn’t changed.
We have been on several international trips with Baby E mainly to the UK! This is probably the biggest change we have had. As we are expats in Qatar, we have had to bring baby E back to meet family and friends and to hold her christening! Normally we wouldn’t do this many trips to the Uk so close together as we really love exploring new places. However this isn’t a permenant change. Over the next six months we have plans to go on adventures to Italy, France , Spain and the Seychelles so normal adventure service will resume soon.

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
