2 | WHERE TO STAY (Lodging)
BED AND BREAKFAST (B&B's)
When you travel, if you have never stayed in a Bed and Breakfast, you have
missed out on a very relaxing experience, whether alone or with your sweetheart. Like hotels, you
have to do a little research to select the style / environment that best matches your taste, but a little
bit of homework can reward you with a very comfortable stay.
You will find in the owners of a Bed and Breakfast a
variety of personalities, from the typical “motherly” type to the adventurous, just off the oil rig,
“Marlboro Man” who just loves cooking a full breakfast for his guests. Everyone has their unique tale to
tell and all love to meet and know their guests.
And talk about a breakfast! They range from the ordinary to the
extraordinary, but nowhere can you mingle so easily with other interesting travelers sharing your own
Don’t forget other amenities that may come with a Bed and
Breakfast: a garden, a pool, a large breezy porch or a cozy living room to sit
quietly and read a book. In the early evening, some provide wine so the innkeeper and guests
can mingle before the latter leave the inn
Like hotels, some now offer wireless internet access or perhaps a
hard-wired terminal you can plug into. All offer an environment that is unique and comfortable.
Only disadvantage: you will have to go elsewhere for meals other than
