Hey lovely friends,
Ahh..today has been such a hectic day! I went to Antwerp again for apartment hunting! Found a great place and I applied for the place, hope I will get it, fingers crossed
I am starting my new job on Monday, exciting times. New job, new city, new chapter of my life. But that does not mean that I will neglect my website and my awesome #TOTD project! I have so many great travelers that I want to introduce to you guys! And today I have another traveling beauty! Let’s get this party started!
Short message from the TOTD: Right so, lets get started. My name is Sam Belkacemi- Sambella for short. I’m 23 years old and I was working at the Hilton hotel before I decided to set out for my own travels. You see, I was standing there at the front desk checking people in for their gorgeous holidays and all the while I was just stuck in the same place. I literally felt like I was going nowhere. But I had gotten myself into a rut because all I was worrying about was money- but travel doesn’t have to cost the world!
I know- I’m strange like that. I also always bring eyeshades and a neck pillow because when you’re travelling you really do have to just grab sleep whenever and wherever you can. I honestly slept on the airport floor once because I was that tired and I hadn’t managed to get on the flight that I wanted and so I was waiting to see if I could make the next one. Airport floor in the daytime when you’re exhausted = hell. Airport floor in the day time with an eyemask and neck pillow = bearable! At least I could kind of get some rest. Another item that I travel with is a clear plastic bag- (the amount of times that I have had makeup and liquids taken off me because I didn’t carry them in a clear bag isn’t even worth thinking about!) So I make sure to bring this- just in case. And the final item is some kind of body spray. You never know who you’re sitting next to, how bad the journey will smell and it’s good to carry with you to just refresh yourself in general! Two sprays and you’ll feel miles better. I always bring a fresh flavour- pink grapefruit is my alltime fav 🙂
When you live somewhere you take it for granted and get lazy to go discovering, but trust me, there is so much to discover in the most unlikely of places!
I think I’m a bit of both- I love a good bargain but I cant completely backpack- it! Like I wont be staying by the sides of the street and if I find a cockroach in my room because it’s a really budget hostel- I’m outta there!! I have to say the Protea Fire and Ice hotel in Johannesburg was absolutely unreal!! They even put rose petals on your bed and everything was just pristine! I didn’t even want to sleep in the room it looked that perfect!! So I definitely recommend that place!! I don’t have any photos of it but I’ll post a link to my video on the place- you see the room exactly 1 minute in!
