We love to travel just to explore and to learn about new and unfamiliar territories. To travel is to truly live.
Sometimes, you get excited about the room where you stay. It may have a beautiful view, exquisite service, amazing interior design, or provide a luxurious experience. The rooms sometimes leave such great impression that you think “Oh my God, I would really live here!”
