Discover Your Passions All Over The Globe #TTT 65

As a travel blogger, I’ll be the first to say that travel blogs can stifle creativity in new travelers.

Why is this?

You want to support this place, because unlike the big chains where you’re a room number, at Curiocity you constantly interact with the owner, the employees and other travelers.  After a few days, strangers become family and connections are easy.
