[Sale Ended] Hotels.com Offers 50% off Hotels in 2018 #BlackFridaySale

From my seat here in Australia, Black Friday sales have not typically mattered to me.

As my friend Vanessa Chaisson wrote: “I reject the manipulation of capitalism and societal pressure which leads to environmental destruction, communities ravaged by debt, and non-ironic acid washed jeans.

I am a minimalist committed to supporting local businesses and the betterment of my community. I have been blessed with abundance this year and I need nothing more.”

But when I heard about Hotels.com offering 50% off hotels for Black Friday this was also me:

“Holy s&%t. Black Friday sales also apply to TRAVEL?????!!!”

Your Guide to a Suite Stay in Canberra: Review of Pacific Suites

Having recently been named one of Lonely Planet’s Top 10 cities for 2018, Canberra has been receiving a lot of hype and attention.

Rare among Australia’s large cities in that it isn’t situated along the coast, Canberra is instead flanked by wild nature reserves where iconic wildlife roams, surrounded by wine country, and picturesquely nestled alongside Australia’s highest alpine peaks.

The well thought out and completely planned city may be nearly a 2 hour’s drive from the closest beach, but we found Canberra to offer more than enough excitement within the city to keep us entertained and not needing sand beneath our feet.

With a perfectly positioned base for exploring Australia’s bush capital in Pacific Suites Canberra, go behind the political scenes and discover a beautiful city surrounded by the calls of bushland wildlife that easily drowns out the shouting of MPs!

Adventurous Activities You Don’t Want to Miss in China

It’s one of the biggest countries in the world, home to the largest population on the planet, heck- the landmass covers five entire time zones (errr, even though there’s only one).

There are no two ways about it: traveling in China is next some next level nomad business.

Anyone who’s ever spent time in the big Zhongguo can tell you that China’s diversity of language, culture, and landscape is enormous. Sometimes just traveling from province to province feels like you’re crossing international borders; it’s that different.

For the adventurous among us, this can actually be the most exciting thing about traveling in China- you can have a lifetime worth of crazy experiences, all within the borders of a single country.

From teetering over the edge of a sky-high mountain to skimming your surfboard down the lip of a wave, here’s our pick of the craziest, kookiest, and downright coolest outdoor activities you can do while traveling in China.

Mantra Albury Hotel: A Sophisticated Stop Between Melbourne and Sydney

For anyone considering an Australian road-trip, the first thing you’ll discover is that driving from Melbourne to Sydney or vice versa makes for a very long day.

The drive is nearly nine hours of dodging kangaroos on the road and literally counting sheep (to fall asleep if you’re a passenger, or, if you’re the one driving, to keep yourself entertained!).

Though thankfully, there is an easy way to avoid driver fatigue.

The solution is Albury.

To our surprise, for a city known as a convenient overnight stay, Albury proved to be far more than the quick stopover point we thought it was.

What we found was a city where the great Australian bush and meets modern urban sophistication. Where we stayed was the stunning Mantra Albury.
