A Salute to Fall from Prince Edward Island! http://aviewtoathrill.net/2014/09/29/salute-fall-prince-edward-island/ http://aviewtoathrill.net/2014/09/29/salute-fall-prince-edward-island/#comments Mon, 29 Sep 2014 16:24:13 +0000 http://aviewtoathrill.net/?p=17859   I first fell in love with Prince Edward Island through the narrow view of a photo lens.  Its’ vast beauty shined through whether it was the picturesque countryside or pensive seaside.   I was enamored with its quaint architecture, beautiful seashore and knew that one day I would have to bear witness to it to make […]

The more I hear about how high […]

The Newbie’s Guide to booking a place to stay http://aviewtoathrill.net/2013/09/16/the-newbies-guide-to-booking-accommodations-i/ http://aviewtoathrill.net/2013/09/16/the-newbies-guide-to-booking-accommodations-i/#comments Mon, 16 Sep 2013 15:36:35 +0000 http://aviewtoathrill.net/?p=10224 When it comes to finding accommodations while traveling, I’m somewhat of a pragmatist. I don’t require 5* stays mostly because I see it as a colossal waste of money. When I travel, I see my hotel room as somewhere to lay my head at night. I didn't travel so that I could stay in a room, I plan to spend as little time there as possible! But this is just my budget conscious opinion.
