How 2019 Has Been Treating Me So Far in Beau-Beauty-Travel Aspect

In case you don’t know… In the past few years, I usually re-read the resolution that I wrote in the previous year to reflect how the progress has been in the mid of the year. The next thing I know, it’s June already and suddenly I’ve done half of the year 2019 already.

I mean, seriously… I’m 30, and still as sassy as I’ve been usually. But hey, life itself has ups and downs so it’s time for me to look back and see what my hope for this year was. Is it aligned to what the reality offers for me? Well, this thing is probably more personal about me rather than something useful for you.

Feel free to skip if you don’t give a fuck about me, but it’s definitely something that I need for me.

Hotel vs Airbnb: Why I’d (Most Likely) Choose Hotel over Airbnb for My Accommodation

First of all, I know you might have found a lot of similar posts about this topic on the internet. Well, that won’t stop me from writing this post anyway.

There’s some mixed opinion about which one is better for accommodation. I know some of my friends who would strongly recommend Airbnb for a lot of reasons. Some even make their side income as the landlord to rent their property through the platform.

I know some other people who would still go for the conventional way to book a hotel room. Their reasons could vary, from being blatantly skeptical about staying at some random stranger’s property to just take the easy way in terms of choosing an accommodation.

As for me, despite the fact that I’ve got a lot of friends who have recommended Airbnb since a few years back, my first Airbnb experience wasn’t quite long ago. It was during my stay in Brunei sometime last year. After that, I also got a couple more Airbnb experience that led me to write this one.

And as you probably expect from the title of the post itself, I’d personally choose a hotel over Airbnb. Why? This is why I’m writing this post! 🙂

What You Could Get in Chicago for $10 – Anything Less than 10 Dollars in the Windy City

Back when I was a kid, I think long before I knew about New York or any other cities in America, there was one city in the USA that I was most familiar with: Chicago. Yes, the city that we’re going to cover on this week’s $10 series!

Apart from the hype of Space Jam and the popularity of Michael Jordan in his prime, the city was also mentioned in one of my favorite Indonesian comedies. To be fair, if the city wasn’t the first city in America that I got to know by name, I don’t know what possibly would be.

Fast forward to today, one of my best friends actually resides there ever since he decided to leave Indonesia around 10 years ago. And now, thanks to Valentina on Valentina’s Destinations, we’re going to see how far $10 USD is in the most populous city in the state of Illinois.
