PopUp Hotel Glastonbury – Luxury Glamping at Glastonbury Festival

PopUp Hotel Glastonbury – Luxury Glamping at Glastonbury Festival

Glastonbury Festival Glamping Accommodation

The Pop-Up Hotel, Glastonbury Festival

We went to the Glastonbury Festival 2013 but went with one thing in mind … we were not slumming it, we had luxury glamping in mind.

We found the Pop-up Hotel online and saw that this would be the ideal Glastonbury Glamping Accommodation. Having visited the website, we decided on our accommodation; So on the morning Glastonbury tickets went on sale we were hopeful of getting tickets…. and so we did. Immediately we called the Pop-Up Hotel and secure our glamping accommodation with a deposit. Once booked we waited for June 2013 to come, paying the remaining amount in the previous months.

Even before we arrived we had lots of contact from Jessica and Graham from the Pop-Up hotel. We had been given directions to the designated Pop-up Hotel Car Park near to the Glastonbury festival site. When we arrived we were helped with our bags and driven to the Popup Hotel site by a very plush Land Rover (which I was very well impressed with).

On arrival, our check-in was processed very quickly and we were shown to our pre-erected tent, which would be our home away from home for the next four nights while at the Glastonbury Festival. I had been very impressed by how well our booking had been dealt with, nothing was too much trouble for the staff.

It is a family-friendly hotel ideal for festivals. I have gone past the stage of slumming it and trying to do Glastonbury without this sort of quality accommodation would be tough (I would probably have gone home as it was raining on the evening we arrived and some poor guys, first-timers, were struggling trying to erect a tent …. for me, no thanks).

There is a strict no drug, no noise, no trouble policy at the Popup Hotel and the public area is bright, secure, lively and has free WiFi (always useful and a nice touch).

Top Notch-Glamping at Glastonbury

This glamping is top notch. The deluxe rooms had charging points ideal for me so that I could charge my phone and DSLR camera battery etc. The inside of the tent was very homely with lots of very nice finishing touches such as fairy lights, a bottle of lavender pillow mist, storage box, full-length mirror, deck-chair, mats and complimentary toiletries. The tent is warm and the beds are very comfortable and you are guaranteed a good night’s sleep.
There was even a spa and hairdressers available at extra charge.

The Pop-up Hotel is only 10-15 minutes from Glastonbury entrance and it is an easy walk to and from the hotel.

There were hot power showers in luxury blocks with clean toilets serviced regularly which was a real treat after a long day at the festival.

If you are looking for something to eat before heading to the festival, great hot breakfasts were available from about £9 per person.

The areas are well-lit areas at night with a security presence, therefore, only those staying get into the hotel property. There is also some nice music (normally acoustic sessions) in the evenings if you didn’t have enough music during the day and food is served almost all day.

The staff at the Pop-up hotel are very friendly and we would like to thank especially Nevin, Joe, Graham, and Jennifer who were all very helpful to us during our stay and couldn’t have done enough.

We loved our stay and we will certainly return to the Pop-Up Hotel at Glastonbury. If you are looking for a luxury accommodation option during the Glastonbury Festival then check out the Pop-Up Hotel Glastonbury!

2015 Updated

For Glastonbury 2015 we stayed once again with The Popup Hotel. There were a few new items such as more lounge areas near reception, there was even a swimming pool at one point. Wifi Continued to be a feature which was widely appreciated.
Overall this is a wonderful glamping experience and if you are going to Glastonbury, or indeed any of the other festivals which to Pop-up Hotel are in attendance, then certainly book it.

Pop-up Hotel Glastonbury

This review of Popup hotel glamping is my opinion of the service and I was not paid or in any way compensated for this post. This post is on my site as I feel it is important to spread the awareness of products or services which I myself and tried and which I feel are good quality, good value or worth trying. I have no personal or financial association with the Pop-up Hotel.

We did try for tickets in 2024 but, unfortunately, there was no joy in getting tickets.

Best Things to do in Prague

Best Things to do in Prague

Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is a wonderful city to visit.  If you are visiting, you will want to know what to do in Prague? This guide will bring you through the best the amazing city of Prague has to offer, where to eat, and where to stay.

Prague has a long and interesting history going back over millennia. Prague is up there with other cities like Paris and Vienna when it comes to culture, architecture, and history. The Vlatava River runs through the city and with Prague’s many world-class museums and baroque-style churches and bridges you will cross the river a few times on your trip.

The ideal amount of time to spend in Prague would be at least 3 to 4 full days but I have spent 8 days in Prague and still felt there was more I wanted to do. If you enjoy walking you can certainly get all these 20 sights visited in 2 days. Bring good walking shoes and if you are visiting from October to March, check the weather and dress accordingly. I once visited in mid-February and it was 8C but feeling like 3C with a slight wind chill factor – scarf, hat, and gloves very much required. I also visited at the end of October and it was very pleasant, around 11C on average, with light showers and some days had a breeze but still very pleasant – again, bring layers so you can change your clothing to suit the conditions.

The Czech Republic does not use the Euro and has the Czech Koruna as the unit of currency. It is located about 2.5 hours from Ireland and about 2 hours from the UK. Most budget airlines fly directly to Prague’s Václav Havel Airport about 12km west of Prague. Connections to the city are available by bus and taxi or private car transfer. We organised our travel from our Hotel, at the Grandior Hotel, more on that later.

I recommend the use of The Revolut Card for excellent exchange rates. I use it all the time and I got about €2 per €100 transferred due to the beneficial exchange rates on Revolut.

Top Things to do in Prague

This is my list of the best things to do and see in Prague. Prague has a lot to offer and in my view gives Paris a run for its money as it has tons of history, and architecture and has great food and is wonderful value for money.

The Astronomical Clock

The Prague astronomical clock, or Prague orloj, is a medieval astronomical clock that is over 600 years old and it is located in the Old Town Square in Prague. you will often find tours of the area and you can get guided tours around Prague which explain the history and the mechanism of this 600-year-old piece of medieval engineering. You can also go up in the tower for great views.

Old Town Square

Old Town Square, in Czech, known as Staroměstské náměstí, is the main central square of the historic part of Prague. Old Town Square is one of the biggest tourist attractions in Prague, along with Charles Bridge and Prague Castle. It is almost impossible to miss it if you’re coming to Prague as a tourist.
Franz Kafka, a German-speaking Bohemian novelist, and short-story writer was born very near here. If you are in this area, look for some great museums in the area, including the Banksy Museum, the Museum of Steel, and the Illusions Museum.

Astronomical Clock Prague
Charles Bridge Prague

Charles Bridge

Known as Karlův Most in Czech, Charles Bridge is a medieval stone arch bridge that crosses the Vltava River in Prague. Construction of the bridge began in 1357 under the order of King Charles IV, and construction finished in the early 15th century. Because King Charles ordered its construction, the bridge has his name.

This was the only means of crossing the river Vltava River until 1841 as it was an important connection between Prague Castle and the city’s Old Town. You can actually go into the Towers at both ends and you get great views of the city, giving the best Sunset Views. The tower near the lesser town is actually better if you only want to do one.

The Palace and Cathedral Grounds

The castle and palace grounds are visible from the river. Simply head up the hill from Charles Bridge you can enter the castle grounds and enjoy the area. You may also see the changing of the guard. At night, don’t forget to say hello to the ghost (I got a spooky and unexplainable picture here many years ago).

St. Vitus Cathedral Prague is situated entirely within the Prague Castle complex.

Wenceslas Square

Wenceslas Square is the main square in the center of Prague. However, it is not actually square but more like a 700m long boulevard with many shops and restaurants along the length of it, Wenceslas Square reminds rather of a boulevard full of shops, focusing on various products from fashion to technologies. The square has been the place where many of the most famous demonstrations have taken place in Czech history. The focal point for Wenceslas Square is the National Museum which was founded in 1818 and was built in the neo-renaissance style. When I was here in 2002 the building was quite dull and ravaged by the elements but on my return in 2020 the building had been cleaned and sandblasted and looked amazing.

Some other of the Best places to visit Prague – in short

If you are in Stare Mesto take a look up as you are walking the street and you may just see the Golden Statue of Sigmund Freud. You can also get a great view of the city if you take the Petrin Hill Funicular. Finally, if you are interested in literature then you just have to visit the Franz Kafka Museum.

Food in Prague

The Food in Prague is amazing. If you want to try the local delicacies then you have to try Knedlíky, or Czech Dumplings, and the best place to find these is Deminka at Škrétova 1, 120 00 Nové Město, Czechia – wonderful service, 5-star food, and you have to pair the food with a Pilsner Urequel. If you are looking for a 5-star snack then try the Grand Cafe Orient for its strudel and coffee. One of the other 5-star recommendations for traditional Czech food is Restaurace Mincovna located in Old Town Square; the food is amazing and I recommend making a recommendation. I also recommend Restaurant Mustek, a 4-star recommendation  (at the bottom of Wenceslas Square opposite the entrance to the Mustek metro stop) – they serve great food, we visited 3 times, and 2 times were excellent but on the 3rd visit our server had a problem when we asked for tap water (refused it) with the meal, which was the only reason our server was not tipped. 

Prague is a wonderful city and I have traveled there about 4 times now, each time I found something new to enjoy. The food and the friendliness of the people are real selling points of the city.

A Day in London – Travel Guide

A Day in London – Travel Guide

I recently had a full day in London with no plans other than to explore areas of London I had not been to before. London city is a wonderful spot to visit and I have been there about 23/24 times before (not really sure to be honest).

This time I wanted to see parts of London I had not seen so I started with a walk.

What to Do in London

Kensington Gardens

I had been to Hyde Park before but this time I entered from the Queensway side and on this entry you get to see Kensington Gardens. It is a really nicely laid out house and gardens, with cafe and a tour of the house. At times you would hardly believe you are in London or for that matter a capital city as the pas is very much reduced. The gardens with fountains are well worth seeing as they would be in full colour during the summer, even in Mid April they were impressive.

Kensington Gardens is one of the Queen-related places in London. The Kensington Gardens was first opened to the public in 1733, every Sunday night. The chief gardener, Samuel Milward, was appointed at St James’s Palace and Kensington Palace in 1738. At the moment, Kensington Palace houses the offices and residences of the Prince and Princess of Kent, The Duke and Duchess of Kent, and The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester. It is also the London residence of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

You don’t need an admission ticket to enjoy and explore the Kensington Palace Gardens. There, you can take selfies all you want, which you can post with Instagram hashtags for travel photography. However, if you want to explore the palace, you’ll need to get one so you could walk its royalty footsteps. Walking through the Kensington Gardens is safe at night. You can take the road that goes from the legendary Royal Albert Hall towards Lancaster Gate.

Kensington Gardens
Coffee and Cake in Harrods


A friend told me about the cafe at Harrods, saying that they served Arabic Coffee (something I have only had once but wanted to try again). I entered Harrods and was bombarded by an air of opulence and I could feel the money in my wallet shake with nervous tension. I made my way to the first cafe I could find, on the 5th floor, couldn’t see Arabic Coffee so ordered a cake and a cappuccino. It was only afterwards I found out that there are 5 cafes in Harrods and the one I was looking for was called the Mezzah Lounge … so maybe next time!

What and Where to Eat in London

London has many fine eateries, with thousands of restaurants to choose from. Below are 3 of my favourites which I tried on this trip. (I have new additions for this list which will come in late April 2019 or early May)

Joy King Lau

Located just off Leicester Square this authentic restaurant is normally full of local Chinese families enjoying lunch. The selection of Dim Sum and authentic Chinese dishes is excellent. Note that Dim Sum is only served until 5 pm and after that, there are 2 dim sum platters only available. The service can come across as abrupt but in reality, it is just the level of efficient service required with the level of business they get. If you are going, try the grilled Cheung Fun or the Steamed Pork Buns – delicious.

Eat Tokyo

I discovered this place by accident on the way to a West End show. The menu is very authentic and covers everything from ramen to sushi and sashimi – if you are enjoying a meal here, ask for the recommended plum wine which is all the way from a small town in Japan.


I last tasted good Vietnamese cuisine in Melbourne and finding Pho was a really enjoyable experience. The dishes are very enjoyable whether in a broth or as a stir-fry. Before you leave you to have to try a Ca-Phe (or Vietnamese coffee) it is a real eye-opener and now my absolute favourite coffee.


This restaurant is located in a really trendy part of town, James Street just off Bond Street. Cocochan serves Asian fusion and has a wide range of Dim Sum and main courses. if you are eating here, try one of the amazing cocktails or cocktails as they really compliment the food. I love the duck spring rolls here.


Located near seven dials in London, this pizza spot is amazing. Prior booking is probably needed on weekends. Without a booking, you may need to wait for anything from 60-90 minutes at peak times. It is worth the wait. The pizza is very good and you should try half and half.


The Emirates Greenwich Cable Car Experience

The Emirates Greenwich Cable Car is an exciting new attraction in London. The cable car flies between the Greenwich Peninsula and the Royal Docks. The relaxing cable car trip takes just over 10 minutes, however, during peak times it’s a bit faster. The gondolas accommodate ten people but at less busy times you can usually get one for your group. A new gondola arrives about every 30 seconds. You can use your Oyster card (best way to do it) a contactless payment card to pay for the trip. It cost me £7 for the return trip. Note, you must get off and re-queue on the other side when paying by Oyster or contactless Card. 

After 7 pm, enjoy extended ‘Night Flights’ are a bit slower and more relaxed. There is a music backtrack as you watch the sunset over London, during the day there is a commentary.

Emirates Air Line Cable car is accessible to wheelchair users and cyclists and is open seven days per week. Don’t forget to arrive early and try the Emirates exhibit on the Greenwich side which does much about the airline industry.

Good London Hotels… Where to Stay in London

Finally, if you are looking for a nice spot to stay for a few days, I recommend the following London hotels;

  • Mercure Bloomsbury, London  – Excellent Service & Staff
  • Hilton Doubletree London Victoria – Nice Hotel, Excellent Service & excellent Location 3 minutes from Victoria Station
  • Park Plaza Hotel London, Victoria – Similar location to the Doubletree
  • Grosvenor Hotel, Victoria – Really plush high-class hotel with good value rates in low season

I find Victoria a great location as I usually arrive into London via Gatwick and the Gatwick Express terminates at Victoria, so I like the convenience.



I have outlined all the places in London which are mentioned above on this interactive map.

Protecting Your Travel Itinerary: Privacy Concerns and Tips

Protecting Your Travel Itinerary: Privacy Concerns and Tips

The very idea of packing up and exploring a new city or country is exhilarating for countless individuals, and it’s easy to understand why. However, despite its allure, travel comes with a set of risks that may not be immediately apparent to enthusiastic adventurers.
Travelers often take precautions against physical risks like theft or loss of belongings. Yet, one aspect that often goes unnoticed before embarking on a delightful vacation is the need to protect one’s digital privacy. We will help you protect privacy, travel itinerary, and other data even when away from home.

#1 Disable auto-connect to Wi-Fi

Public Wi-Fi networks are widely known to jeopardize privacy and security since they are accessible to anyone. Cybercriminals have an upper hand when they share a network with their targets. They can compromise victims by eavesdropping on their communication, stealing private data, and even infiltrating their devices to continuously harvest information. If they infect the device, they can steal data even after you disconnect from the network.

To protect yourself, it is advisable to avoid using public Wi-Fi networks, especially those without password protection. Furthermore, connecting to hotel Wi-Fi networks with easily visible passwords should be avoided, as they can be accessed by anyone, not just the guests.

#2 Use a VPN

To enhance your online security and privacy while traveling, it is advisable to utilize a Virtual Private Network (VPN). This software program or app encrypts your internet activities, conceals your IP address, and ensures that your browsing remains private. By activating the VPN whenever you connect to the internet, regardless of your location, you can effectively safeguard your information.

With the ability to change location on your iPhone, you get other benefits as well. For example, you can unlock location-based apps or purchase tickets at a discount. Plus, you can use your apps without the risk of your account being banned for suspicious activity. This often happens with banking applications. If you want to know the secret of how to change location, then this is VeePN. It allows you to change your IP address with 2500+ VPN servers.

#3 Turn On MFA

Deploying additional security layers between your account and an attacker is a wise decision. Therefore, it is highly recommended to enable and configure Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) on your accounts, regardless of your travel plans.

Various types of MFA are available, so opt for the highest level of security, such as biometrics, physical security keys, or authenticator apps. It’s important to note that security questions can be a vulnerability, as they can be easily bypassed through social engineering. Hence, it is advisable to avoid using them as MFA.

Although receiving an SMS security code on your phone can be effective in most cases, it has limitations due to SIM swap scams. Therefore, it is better to choose more secure MFA options, such as the ones mentioned earlier.

#4 Use “Burner” Phones/Laptops And Online Accounts

To safeguard your data and personal information, consider using low-cost prepaid devices or dedicated devices specifically for traveling instead of carrying expensive ones like a $1,200 MacBook. By opting for a $200 Chromebook, you can still make calls, access cloud files, and browse the internet while greatly reducing the risk of compromising your privacy. It is worth noting that digital searches at borders, both in the U.S. and elsewhere, have significantly increased in recent years, granting border officials the authority to inspect electronic devices and request passwords for phones, computers, and online accounts. As a precaution, some individuals recommend creating “fake” accounts on platforms like Google, Facebook, and Dropbox using your real name before traveling. Populate these accounts with enough content to appear genuine, and present them if requested.

#5 Use a Password Manager


Many people dislike memorizing passwords, so they often end up using the same one for multiple accounts. This, unfortunately, grants potential attackers access to most, if not all, of their accounts in the event of a successful cyberattack.

The obvious solution is to have a different password for each account. However, the human brain can only remember so much, and it’s nearly impossible to recall random passkeys.

Using specialized software, like password managers, can give you an advantage, particularly when you’re traveling and your accounts are more susceptible than usual. Password managers allow you to store all your passkeys and passphrases in a secure location with access using a universal password.

Just remember that a good password without a VPN cannot guarantee security. Together with free VPN Chrome, you will be able to prevent interception and guessing of passwords. Together, these measures work best.

#6 Delete Your Rental Car Navigation History

Rental cars often come equipped with an event data recorder (EDR) within their navigation systems. Similar to black boxes on airplanes, these EDRs gather details about the vehicle’s systems, location, and driver behavior. Additionally, using a rented or built-in GPS navigation system or connecting your phone to the car’s Bluetooth system while driving can make you susceptible to tracking. To safeguard your privacy, ensure to erase any navigation history or personal profile from the rented GPS device or in-vehicle computer before returning the car.


For most people, having electronic devices like cell phones, tablets, or laptops is essential for a complete travel experience. However, along with the benefits, there are also drawbacks and increased risks of cyber theft and compromising personal information. This guide aims to explain the security measures you can take to ensure safe travel.
