One of the biggest things I miss about travelling is hotels. I miss waking up in a new place – having a morning coffee and enjoying the new view outside. I miss finishing a long day of exploring a new city and returning to the hotel bar for an early night.

With many new openings delayed due to the pandemic there will be many destinations to choose between when planning the next holiday.
