Mission: Amsterdam Sends One Bidroom Agent Abroad

Pau is the winner of Bidroom’s interactive game for Krakow’s startup community – Mission: Amsterdam. Her glowing enthusiasm led her through the challenge and into the busy city of a million bicycles. She’d like to tell us if it was fun. Mission: Amsterdam was organised on the 16th of August for all participants of the OMGKRK Summer Jam meet-up in Krakow. Startuppers, entrepreneurs, and networkers could become Agents in Bidroom’s covert operation stylised after the Mission: Impossible series. It started with a challenge to decrypt a coded message of 4 parts held by 4 Bidroom operatives that were hiding in the area. Further instructions remain classified to this day. The big win – for those who accepted the mission – was a visit to the Dutch capital with the flights and hotel stay covered. Overcoming the effort that needed stealth, espionage, and divine hearing abilities, Pau completed all objectives with no measurable effort. The world would like to know what happened. What was the hardest part of your mission? The hardest part, without any doubt …

Top 5 cities to visit this Spring if you don’t want to spend too much money

We all have spent long Tuesday afternoons at work, scrolling through our Instagram and finding posts upon posts by Sarah from high school of her touring the cities of Europe. As you scroll through her pictures of posing with her boyfriend before the Eiffel Tower, appreciating the art in the Van Gough museum, and drinking coffee in the Swiss Alps, your mind automatically tends to think of the last time you went on a vacation. Coming up empty from that thought, you realize how much you have surrounded yourself with work. This is where the itch starts; you know you work too much and deserve a break from all your responsibilities. All work and no play make Jack a dull boy, after all. So, you decide to take a work-break to explore the world, but when you put a hand in your pocket, all your dreams come crashing down. There is no way you can travel around the world in this budget, is there? Don’t worry, we are here for you. For all your tourist …

Dark Tourism. A Fad Or A Favourite?

You may, or may not, have heard of this most recent growing trend. If you have then you probably watch Netflix. If you haven’t then you are probably sat there wondering what on earth Dark Tourism can possibly be. Let’s start at the very beginning. The dictionary definition of ‘dark tourism’ is; dark tourism noun tourism that involves travelling to places associated with death and suffering. Ok. So now we know what it is, but the question remains. Is it ethical? Moral? Right? Well that could be debated for a long time, it is not for me to say whether it is or it isn’t. What I can do though is show and tell you about the history and the places that dark tourists want to visit. So, here goes. Rich In History We as a species have forever been morbidly fascinated with all things related to death. Go back to the Roman Empire and the Gladiator arenas. Think about the crowds of people that used to gather to watch an execution. Even today, in …

NanaPrincess Hotel – The New Jewel in the Crown of Charismatic Crete

Recently Bidroom had a new hotel in Crete join the ranks of the already incredible selection of accommodation available to our members. Having explored the Nana Princess Suites, Villas & Spa (website only, unfortunately), I felt the need to write about it. It is a beautiful hotel offering all its guests a VIP service, but also, I think, it is a perfect example of what can be achieved. Add to that the fact that I think it represents the future of hotel accommodation and it all adds up to something worthy of sharing. The Concept Nana Princess Suites, Villas & Spa, designed and built by the Karatzis Group, has really gone above and beyond with this breathtaking, elevated, 5-star hospitality experience where every guest gets treated like royalty.
