A truly magnificent building, both outside and in.

WEATHER – SUNNY & CLOUDY:

SUZDAL is a small ancient village steeped in medieval history, populated with just over 10,500 local residents, (but unfortunately dropping) living in a golden time warp.

PLEASE JOIN US:

 

ON OUR WONDERFUL 67 DAY 2013
NORTHERN HEMISPHERE
GLOBAL EXPERIENCE!

Firstly, (Cas & I – The Sanman)  extend a very warm welcome for you to join us, (from the 9th of August through to early November 2013) from the comfort of your computer desk, or your “trusty” laptop, or even your smartphone, as we take in a large section of RUSSIA, EUROPE, GREAT BRITAIN and DUBAI IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

Well, where does one start?  It would be prudent to say that we trust and hope that everything is now booked and that our plans are finally starting to materialize for our sixty-seven (67) day NORTHERN HEMISPHERE GLOBAL EXPERIENCE.  In particular we have paid attention in trying to avoid the one night stops, as much as we can as these can be rather arduous when following on.  In the main most of our stops are between 2-4 nights, in most areas.  Listed below are countries in our schedule to visit:

RUSSIA, FINLAND, SWEDEN, DENMARK, THE NETHERLANDS, GERMANY, THE CZECH REPUBLIC, HUNGARY, AUSTRIA, GREECE, TURKEY, ITALY, SWITZERLAND, SCOTLAND, LONDON,  FRANCE, THE UNITED EMIRATES, & finally back to AUSTRALIA.

We decided against doing an assessment on this hotel as we won’t be returning to it again. The standard of service left much to be desired.
