There have been so many things going on around me and I think I suffer from a bit of memory loss. Before I type a blog post, the first thing that comes to my mind is whether or not I have typed something similar to what I am about to write. I will type it anyway. It’s better to type it twice rather than nothing and most probably, I will add some other things and the phrases that I will be using will be different.
Well, I have most certainly blogged about Mee and my coming trip to Australia and New Zealand. I calculated the number of flights we will be taking and it’s a whopping nine! I wonder if anyone actually travel like us, except those who travel around the world. Honestly, finding the flights and accommodations was a tedious job. I have to match the time between each flight and place to ensure that we have enough time within each different places that we are travelling. Luckily, I don’t have to worry about the time difference because the booking websites calculate all that for me. I would be very stress if internet has not been invented yet. We might as well join a tour and that’s about it.
In the past, I find that going through websites like Expedia, Opodo, air bnb, LastMinute and the likes could provide cheaper deals on both flights and accommodations compare to going direct. But now, they all offer the same prices whether you are going through price comparison websites or direct. On rare occasions, it’s worth checking flights directly from the airline websites.
Another thing that caught my attention was when I booked the accommodation for our stay at Gold Coast. It appears that there are more apartments and villas than hotels. And because of the number of apartments available, they work out cheaper than hotel. In the end, Mee and I decided to book a hotel room anyway as hotels would be more secure. I have read reviews where some apartments only have receptionist from 9am to 5pm. We also agree that hotel would be much quieter than apartments.
