Itinerary

If you see a guesthouse that you are interested in, please do not hesitate to ask us any questions about it.  We have photos of most places, and I remember every place clearly.  I just haven’t gotten around to reviewing them all!

Most of these places were discovered using TripAdvisor as a guide, or by walking around when we got to the town. We found this was the best way of finding good, clean, affordable accommodation. Here’s a post I wrote about whether or not you should book accommodation ahead of time!
