Creating your freedom through travel

10 days in Algarve Portugal

Celebrating Stella!

Stella is a wife, a mum of one adorable little boy, an accomplished NHS worker, and owner of a private business and clinic. 

Although she seemed to have it all, she felt that something was a miss. 

She adores travel

She adores experiences 

She adores freedom 

And most importantly she values creating a life worth living for her family and securing their financial future.

I mean can you blame the girl?

Stella started her home-based travel agency and her travel marketing business in mid 2020 and within a few months 

Not only did she manage to save on her own travels 

Not only did she manage to earn an income back from her own travels 

Not only she created residual income that comes in on a monthly basis whether she does the work or not

Not only did she empower young women to create their income and freedom through travel

She actually created her own version of freedom by quitting her job and working her businesses being location independent, on her own terms and to the timetable of her liking.  

Travel Earn and Live life Like never before

She did it in little pockets of time around her busy life

She did it because like anyone of us she travels and people around her travel

She did it with a small social media following because word of mouth is powerful

She did it because in her own words “it’s a no-brainer, we all do it any way we might as well get paid for it”

 

Join me in raising a glass celebrating Stella and her newfound freedom through travel.

Jumeirah Frankfurt Hotel

Jumeirah Frankfurt Hotel

I traveled along the Romantic Road in Bavaria Germany, my travel story on that trip is coming out soon.

I landed in Frankfurt and traveled from there to Wuzburg the first stop along the Romantic Road.

While in Frankfurt I simply couldn’t miss out on the opportunity of staying at the Jumeirah Frankfurt Hotel.  A 5-star lush luxury hotel part of the Jumeirah hotels chain.

Since I’ve recently done my Jumeriah Beacon training, which is a free short course I can access, learning about all the luxury Jumeriah resorts around the world, I knew what their gem hotel in Frankfurt had to offer, and I would have been mad to miss out on experiencing a stay there.

It’s a 5-star hotel but it’s not your ordinary 5-star hotel, Jumeirah Frankfurt is a lavish hotel of urban sophistication in the heart of Frankfurt. One of the tallest buildings in the heart of the city, so when you are promised a panoramic view, you get don’t just get a panoramic view, you get the view of a whole city at your toes!

 

The only hotel in the city that can offer a view of the drop-dead gorgeous Frankfurt skyline, view of the mountains in the distance, and the lush urban sunset.

Each room is decorated with original artwork. Your breakfast is served with golden honey from their own skyline beehives, so are the drinks at the bar, just ask the bartender for their latest cocktail or mocktail. Their restaurants offer signature dining that you can request to be delivered to the comfort of your room.

The hotel has its renowned Talise spa, I haven’t tried it personally (due to COVID restrictions) but from the service that I’ve had and seen in the hotel, I can trust it would deliver well on its promise of being an oasis of tranquility. There’s also a top-notch fitness center, that you can use to burn off the calories from all of the gorgeous food you’ll be having.

The hotel has a superb location right in the heart of the city and right next door to its bustling shopping district, you’ll never be too far from shopping, dining, or an exploring experience.

Yes, all of that comes with a hefty price tag, but I won’t be a savvy traveler if I didn’t have a way up my sleeve to circumvent that! I booked a deluxe room, however to my pleasure that was upgraded on my arrival to a panoramic suite #sograteful.

Do you know that big glass corner office with an amazing view that they keep showing in American movies, the one that almost everyone in the company wants to have? Well, the suite I got was miles bigger and better than that!

A corner suite with windows floor to ceiling on almost two of its sides giving you the feel of you walking on a ledge with the whole city under your feet… The bed was situated in a way that you’d go to sleep above the city and wake up with the sun rising over it.

The bathroom, well that was nearly the size of my flat! You’d walk in and there’s a dressing wardrobe, a rainforest shower, his and her illuminating marble sinks, a TV built in the mirror, another massive mirror, the bathtub, and a separate toilet. You’d walk in the bathroom from the bedside and come out of it from the living side of the room… Spectacular design!

Oh, yes the toiletries were from aromatherapy!

Two TVs, because one apparently wasn’t enough, one above the bed and another in the living area. A very pretty glass desk with a lush suede chair and a Jumeirah iPad, a minibar, a Nespresso machine, and a massive original piece of art decorated the rest of the suite. Oh, and you get signature design slippers to keep your toes toasty.

On one of the evenings of my stay, the general manager of the hotel led a private skyline tour, after having drinks at the bar.

The lovely melt in your mouth swiss chocolates and beautiful fresh flowers you see up there were a complimentary surprise from the front desk to welcome my arrival.

Sunborn Gibraltar

a gem of the Mediterranean floating glamourously in the sea. I'm sure it will suit your next break whether that's a break from work to chill, a break to work away from home, an active holiday, or your special occasion. Whatever it is the Sunborn Gibraltar will cater!

Welcome on board the world’s first 5-star floating yacht hotel!

This has been one of the most beautiful stays I have had around the world. It won a place on my list of top hotels to stay at around the world, more on that to come soon.

The floating giant is a seven-deck, 465ft cruise ship, if you want to know what the vibe is like on a 5-star floating yacht, imagine “cruise ship meets Bulgari hotel” at least that’s how The Telegraph describes it!

Sitting on the marina of Western Europe’s southernmost tip, Sunborn Gibraltar brings to you a whole new level of exclusive luxury.

I can assure you that deciding whether you would stay at the hotel or not wouldn’t be a difficult decision to make it picking which room to stay at. The yacht hotel comprises 189 lavishly appointed rooms, that give you the choice of three views: the maria, the sea, and the Rock. Molton Brown toiletries furnish the bathrooms, depending on the room type you stay in you could have a shower or a bath that’s so big it could fit at least a couple of people.

I was personally impressed with how the wardrobe full-sized mirror slides open to the bathroom, making it one big dressing room. I took photos of the design to fit it in my future home.

Onboard the yacht you have 2 restaurants, 2 bars, and a lounge for exclusive use by hotel guests on the sundeck. An infinity pool with a view of the Rock, a lush spa a fresh fitness suite, and a casino. All offering guests a unique opportunity to enjoy the ultimate indulgent hotel experience.

The yacht hotel also hosts top-class conference and meeting rooms. The Aurora ballroom promises an exceptional atmosphere for your special events whether celebrating in small or big groups the soundproof ballroom means you can party all night long!

Imagine taking your wedding vows or celebrating your anniversary with the scenic Mediterranean as a backdrop on one side, the view of the Rock on the other. That is one hell of an unforgettable location.

You can spend a week exploring the hotel alone let alone exploring Gibraltar.

Being close to the airport and housed at the ocean village promenade it is really the perfect place to stay to explore Gibraltar. Most tourist destinations are within 15 minutes of the hotel.

I must say even with it being close to the airport you don’t hear the noise, if anything it is a fascinating experience to stay at one of the marina rooms/suites and watch the flights take off or land on the runway. Absolutely fascinating experience!

My visit was a workcation meets let’s see what Gibraltar has to offer, it definitely had plenty to offer I would say as well as the hotel that provided a suitable environment to work and relax when I wanted to.

Spending time by and in the infinity pool, at the exclusive wheel lounge watching the sun drop behind the ocean while enjoying happy hour, or even taking a break from my inbox and sitting in the Barbary restaurant for a lovely afternoon tea.

You won’t run out of options at the Sunborn Gibraltar.

Talking about relaxation, the spa and sauna experience was just what the doctor needed to unwind from a busy week’s work prior to my departure.

Definitely, a gem of the Mediterranean floating glamourously in the sea. I’m sure it will suit your next break whether that’s a break from work to chill, a break to work away from home, an active holiday, or your special occasion. Whatever it is the Sunborn Gibraltar will cater!
