Fascinating (1)

Thank you for joining me for the 2nd ‘Fascinating Friday!’ The last one, featuring the $250,000,000 home at 924 Bel Air Road, was a big hit with you all, so I really hope that you enjoy what I have for today! If you didn’t see the last ‘Fascinating Friday,’ you can view it here. 😊
Ok, so this Friday we are looking at the first of two parts featuring some of the most unique and incredible places that you can stay! Get ready to be amazed!
Here we go…




The 727 Fuselage Hotel Suite, Costa Rica

friday7This 727 Fuselage hotel suite is a refurbished vintage 1965 Boeing 727 airframe, which, in its prior life, shuttled globetrotters on South Africa Air and Avianca Airlines (Colombia). This fully outfitted, meticulously detailed, two bedroom, Boeing 727 fuselage suite jets out from the jungle canopy, affording you views that will make you feel like you’re flying.

    Very interesting to read! I despise heights so I could never do the one in Peru!! The first one was kinda neat, almost like staying in the jungle or something. I’d say the ice one was my favorite, although that bed being held by hands felt a little creepy to me! I love the chandelier though, it’s gorgeous! All these excotic places are very neat, even though, I’d probably stay somewhere simpler…I’m a bit of a homebody so I might need somewhere that reminded me of home a bit more! 😉

    Thanks! Yes, the one in Peru is pretty freaky! You have to be comfortable with heights! The jungle one is pretty exotic, I could probably stay there. I think it would be cool to stay in the Ice Hotel, they make sure that you don’t freeze! They have specialized sleeping bags and ways to make sure you stay warm! I AGREE, THE BED HELD BY HANDS IS SOO CREEPY! I could never sleep there. 😂 I agree with you, these places are fun to look at, but I would much rather stay somewhere less strange…like a beach house on the ocean, or a cabin in the mountains. These are just a little too exotic for me, too 😂 Thanks for the comment!

      Nice! You must like heights then? 😂 Yea, I bet! People from South Carolina would die from the cold! Yea, I’d have bad dreams all night! Yes, for sure!! I’ve never stayed at beach house and I’d love to! My pleasure! 😊

        Actually, I’m not sure if I could do it! Ha, yeah, I’m sure! IKR!! 😂 😂 Who could sleep there? You live in South Carolina, and you haven’t been to a beach house? People travel from all over the place to visit Myrtle Beach! If you want to stay in a beach house, you should really check out Outer Banks, NC! The rentals are incredible, with almost every rental having a private heated pool and hot tub! It’s a really cool vacation destination. 😃

    WOW!! Those are so neat and CRAZY!! The plane one is pretty neat!! The ice one is cool…and creepy to look at, and the other one NO WAY would I go there!!! 😛 I hate heights!! The views look amazing! But I’d probably pass out 😀

    Whoa, these are STRANGE, but neat! O.o XD My favorite was the ice palace – although it looks rather chilly. :[] I can’t imagine how long it would have taken to carve all those sculptures and furniture pieces!

    Oh wow, I had no idea resorts like this even existed, haha!! That plane hotel looks absolutely amazing, and the ice hotel looks like a version of Elsa’s castle from Frozen! Both are really cool 😀

    Whoa! First of all, Hi!
    Second, those look like amazing experiences! I’m not so sure about the ice hotel though…too cold for me XD. A view from the side of a cliff sounds interesting.
