I’m writing this as I sit in the quaint lobby of an 1800s hotel along the Italian Riviera, waiting for a taxi to take me to Nice, France, where I will begin my journey back to Australia. Dare I say, life’s good?
For the past 10 days I’ve been in San Remo (or Sanremo, as the locals spell it) reporting on the EPT for PokerNews. Luckily I had a few days to explore this gorgeous town so I’m about to share my findings here with you.
Barcelona is one of my favourite cities to visit, offering an endless supply of incredible food, gobsmacking sights, AWESOME shopping, and winding streets to explore. Here is a quick tour around town where, naturally, I themed it around food!
I was in Northern Cyprus for an event being held at the Merit Crystal Cove, but was staying at the Mercure. If I wasn’t spending so much time at the Merit, then I probably would have loved Mercure, however it was hard to not compare the two. Mercure has all the same offerings, but is a budget version of the Merit – without showing the same level of difference in price.
