Rooms, Views, Rooms with Views

It's Thursday already! Wow, where did this week go? Given limitations of time, I'm multi-tasking with this post for both #igtravelthursday on instagram, and #frifotos on twitter. To accomplish both themes, I've grabbed and instagramized all my shots of rooms and views currently stored on my iphone. These go back a couple years, some you may recognize from previous tweets or instagrams, others are making their online debut from the recesses of my phone's camera roll.  I could easily dedicate an entire post to each one of these fabulous places I've had the pleasure to stay, but for now, just go with it, and enjoy the view!

And the winner of best room with a view so far this year goes to the Aqua Expeditions Aria, where each cabin is a suite with floor to ceiling view windows, sleek contemporary decor, air-conditioning, and comfortable beds - you can pretty much experience the amazing secenery of the Amazon without ever leaving your room!

And be sure to check the #frifotos hashtags on twitter all day Friday to see more rooms with views!
