The @indianapolismotorspeedway #indy500 is a day like no other in motorsport. This was my second Indy 500 and it was as good if not better than my first trip to the speedway. Making the gates opening at 6am right through the rain delays to the chequered flag it was just such a brilliant day. Here’s to many more indy500 days to come!

After a few days away from #cars it was great to be back @indianapolismotorspeedway for #carbday. To see the cars racing in the packs and running so close together is just mad. Headed tonight out to @raceirp for the #hoosier100 but sadly due to rain and weather in region we only got to see a few cars go around before we had to evacuate the site. Hopefully that’s the last of the rain to hit over the next few days…

Full day doing a number of things in #nashville! Firstly heading to @theryman to see the original home of the Opry. Then off to @unionstationnashville followed by a brewery tour (and tasting) @nelsonsgreenbrier with finally a wrap up @marathonmotorworks site where there were lots of cool shops  and places to browse. Then the heavens opened. Final bit of the night on Broadway seeing the sights and sounds of this cool city

Travel Smart: 5 Accommodation Types

Window shot from Plane

5 Accommodation Types

When considering what your travel or holiday accommodation should be, you are probably after three main things. You want comfort, affordability, and convenience. The final of these is perhaps the most sketchy out of the three. It's the factor that plays the most subtle underhand to our plans. Sure, we want comfort and we need it to be within our budget, but where the accommodation is, the ease of access, and even things like transportation options plays a huge role. So we went through the tons and tons of accommodation types and sifted through them all to name the top 5 choices with these three things in mind.

Motorhome cruising

Out of the three attributes we are testing by, the cost and convenience are well and truly the best traits of the motorhome. You know exactly how much the fuel is going to cost, what it will take to recharge the battery or charge up the appliances from the mains, etc. You are never too far from the motorhome or at least, you can always find it where you left it i.e. when you go hiking or sunbathing. The main concern is the comfort level. It all depends on the type of motorhome you take. The more expensive motorhomes do have a double or single bed at the back. 

Backpack hostel

You probably know where this one is headed. Backpack hostels are cheap and they offer you a very convenient way to head in and out of accommodation. If you just need a place to sleep while in a city, then these are a great option. However, comfort is questionable. You might be sharing a room with up to 4 or 6 different people. 

Holiday Home

Holiday home

As you would expect from a holiday home, you get heaps of comfort. You have your own heating, bedrooms, kitchen and any of the other perks that a property might have; such as a swimming pool. When you look at these types of Holiday Homes To Let, yo or city, not too far from the center. Other times they are in a secluded village or coastline, overlooking breathtaking views. They offer convenience but for a cost. But it's worth it for most people, so they may have freedom to live how they please while on holiday.

Hotel heaven

The standard of hotels has shifted so much that even a standard 3-star hotel is quite good. Hotels offer you great comfort as the rooms are made every day and you have access to great food without leaving your room. They also offer convenience, as their location is usually in the best place for heading out to an adventure. Yet, the costs are somewhat annoying if you are managing a budget.

Airbnb

The new way for travellers to have the utmost cost-effective convenience for a bed for the night. Airbnb offers anyone who needs just a bed for the night, a simple window period for when they can be in someone’s home for that purpose. It's cheap, and usually very convenient as you can book a room within an hour or less at times. As for the comfort, well, this is often subjective.

 

What is your favourite way to travel regarding accommodation? If you had a choice, which holiday accommodation would you choose?

    I try to mix up the accommodation experience as much as possible to get the best experience and insights from a place. If I only stay for a few days, I prefer a safe option of a hotel (I travel solo mostly). If time allows, I like to stay in private accommodation which I can rent through friends or acquaintances. Not a fan of Airbnb if I’m honest or couch surfing myself (although I’ve offered couch surfing in the past and made many good connections).

      I’m always one for a hotel most of the time, but good to think of all the options!
