The Travel and things awards, 2011

161

What would a travel blog be without awards?
All the awards are based on what my wife and I  have experienced during our stay at these various properties…
For those who know me are aware that  I travel with my own pillow.This means that the “best pillow” award is very prestigious.( The award is subjective as I like a hard pillow)
To the owners who hosted us, many thanks.
