Sleeping With Marlon Brando! Sleeping With Fishes! Amazing Travel Escapes!

Try To Fall Asleep Looking At This!


Yes, the “northern lights” are unbelievably beautiful…I could stare up at them all night…wouldn’t get much sleep, but imagine sleeping here!

As so may people are about to travel for the holidays, I started having a bit of “wanderlust” – where would be the absolutely coolest places to go? Well, this is a pretty brilliant start…

amazing travel adventures

The Northern Lights!

Yes, let mother nature do all the work!

As you all know, the bright dancing lights of the aurora are collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere. The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres.

Like I said, as you all know…


Here is an amazing time lapse sequence from Norway, courtesy of NatGeo:

And in Finland, you can rent a glass igloo to watch them from the comfort of your bed! Imagine waking up to see this!

Northern Lights Resort

Sleep under the northern lights…one of the incredible natural displays of all…many of the northernmost countries in Europe, like Finland, offer just such an experience…and it looks amazing….

“Excuse Me, Can You Point Me To My Igloo?”

How often will you say that in your lifetime? This is most certainly the adventure of a lifetime…or perhaps you want to forget the stars and sleep with the fishes instead…


A “Real” Poseidon Adventure!

Yes, you can sleep at the bottom of the sea – imagine waking up to see this staring back at you:


I would never fall asleep…but I also wouldn’t take a bath if I knew this was watching me wash up…


This underwater hotel is in Dubai, of course, and if you want to read more about these incredible adventures, see my entire story here:

And, if you REALLY want to “sleep with the fishes”, then why not head over to The Godfather’s place for a night?


Yes, the iconic movie star Marlon Brando was more than just “The Godfather” – he was an innkeeper too!

Marlon Brando Island

When the Actor filmed “Mutiny On The Bounty”, he fell in love with Fiji, and ultimately bought his own island! Brando’s island is in the south seas, and you can rent a room there – imagine this: you can tell your friends that you got a good rate because you “made them an offer they couldn’t refuse”…
