Spanish City ‘Making the most out of Malaga’
‘Red City Restaurants’- Marrakech - by Samantha Owen-Stoddart
Back in May whilst I was travelling around Gdansk in Poland, Adam booked us two return flights with Easyjet to Malaga for November. Firstly as they were a fantastic deal and secondly because that’s the kind of lovely person he is! Always super supportive of my travel blog, to which I am thankful. When we discussed accommodation, he happily booked a place we had been to see a year earlier on a Boxing Day trip to the city, called Dulces Dreams. It was a small hotel, very central to everything and cheap. Our booking was confirmed and we began planning our trip…
Tipping in Greece
Each time I visit the Red City I like to try new restaurants. With hundreds of restaurants to choose from in Marrakech you are always spoilt for choice! Sometimes I plan where I would like to eat, to avoid the disappointment of not getting a table and others times it is by other people’s recommendations or sheer spontaneity of seeing somewhere.
Tipping Down under
Greece is a country which welcomes millions of tourists each year both for its historical wonders and its beautiful scenery. It’s a country which is well prepared for the tourism trade and, as with most countries, gratuities are expected.
Gratuity in Brazil
Everything seems much more chilled out in Australia. There’s a lot of surfing, beach days BBQs and just to add to that, they have Koalas.
The home of Christ The Redeemer statue, Copacobana beach and copious amount of culinary delights (and wild nightlife), Brazil is a popular destination and somewhere that millions of tourists visit each year.
Showing your gratitude
America is probably the country that most people associate with tipping. It causes debate after debate about how much should be left as a tip or in fact, more recently, whether tips should be left at all.
I am a keen traveller and often go on short city breaks across Europe and occasionally further afield to more exotic climates other than the cold, wet city that is London (my base). I'm used to tipping in the U.K based upon the service I receive and whether or not I'm feeling flush (not very often), but when I'm overseas I feel that good old British need to be super polite and (over)tip. After all, I am representing my country and I don't want people thinking we're rude.
