Ausonia Hungaria

After experiencing the crushing cloud of tourism overcrowding and humidity, I was so happy with my decision to stay on the beautiful island of Lido. Once the island was selected, I struggled to decide between budget hotels, the old grand dame of the beach, and the historic, but newly renovated Ausonia Hungaria. One glimpse of…

It’s Friday, I’m in Love…

..with Miami! While, I don’t regret moving away from the madness, I still subscribe that three days down there is the perfect cure for what ails you. Certainly, cured me of a brutal last couple of weeks. So I share with you, my little loves of the Magic City.. A good hotel. A cool room…
