Rooms with a view
We’ve generally rented apartments with some hotels thrown in. A few of them have had incredible views of either city scenes or country landscapes. The picture above is the view from our flat of the Sky Tower in Auckland. This being New Zealand, naturally they allow people to bungee jump off it. Throughout the day we’d hear the screams of people taking the plunge.
Pyongyang, North Korea: View from our room of the unfinished Ryugyong Hotel. The world's tallest hotel, construction stopped 20 years ago when benefactors the Soviet Union collapsed.
Little Rocky admiring the view from the balcony of our flat in Shanghai.
The Singapore skyline from our room. The low building with the orange roof is the British colonial-era post office.
The Hong Kong skyline at night. Discerning readers will notice that this is the skyline in the banner for our web site.
It's not all buildings and skylines though, this is the stunning scenery from the back of our cottage in Twizel, New Zealand.
We've also stayed in local neighborhoods. These kids were our friendly neighbors for two weeks in Bali.
Sometimes it's a jungle out there, like at this coffee plantation on the north coast of Bali.
