Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, you fool - it’s obviously a @thingsihavedrawn masterpiece from 7 year old doodler Al.
We’ve sent the whole family on an adventure. A drawing expedition for the kids, Dom and Al and of course with dad, Tom. Can you guess where in the world they are headed? Stay tuned on the @hotelsdotcom grid & stories to find out!
Tom at @thingsihavedrawn brings his kid’s doodles to life in his own, er, special way. Transforming their weird and wonderful creations - Dom and Al’s drawings are next level masterpieces.

@mat_buckets takeover - “My three days in Oslo have come to an end, the city far surpassed my expectations. I couldn’t recommend it enough; we ate and drank the with the locals, saw several districts of the city, chatted to shopkeepers, certainly got cold, and stood in awe of the city’s beautiful design. _ My top tips: Explore the city by foot, it’s really not that big and local transport can be expensive. _ If you’re visiting in the winter months just remember there’s only 6 hours of daylight per day, compared to 20 hours in the summer. _ Take the express train from the airport to the city centre, it’s far more cost effective that a taxi. _ Visit the stunning Oslo Opera House, one of the most beautiful buildings that I’ve ever seen. The grounds around the building are free to the public, and you get a great view of the city. _ Thanks for following my journey this week, and if you want to see a recap of what I got up to then just check out the Oslo highlights tab. 👋🏼 @mat_buckets#wewhotravel
@mat_buckets takeover - “My first full day in Oslo left me tired but wanting to see so much more. I was surprised just how compact the city was, with one of the locals saying you could drive from the centre to the countryside in ten minutes. Old + new Oslo work perfectly together - this photo was taken in one of the more traditional neighbourhoods, but the soft colours make the design feel brand new #WeWhoTravel
@mat_buckets takeover - “With only six hours of daylight per day in December, you’ve got to think quick to see Oslo in all its glory🥶 My first day was all about exploring the city by foot, with the Oslo Opera House being top of my to-do list. It’s pretty spectacular! Catch up on my first day in the city on stories #WeWhoTravel
@jacknative takeover - “My time in Helsinki has come to an end 😬 This city has so much to offer, I could’ve spent a week here and I still wouldn’t have seen everything on my list. • Today started at the Silent Church which is next to the @amoskonst museum. After getting into the Christmas spirit, wandering around the market I visited the Design Museum to learn a little about all the incredible designers, architects and artists that have come out of Finland. Then a quick stop in at Adante for a coffee before grabbing my bag and heading to the Airport. • Thank you to @hotelsdotcom for having me on this trip. Can’t wait to come back and see more of this beautiful city. ✌🏼out guys!” #WeWhoTravel
@jacknative takeover - “today was fun. Got to tick off a few places I really wanted to see. The Kiasma Museum was a chilled way to spend a Sunday morning with some interesting exhibitions. Next was the University Library with a really cool interior - it’s a must see for architecture lovers. • @restaurantstory.fi for lunch 👌🏼 but a little tip - it gets very busy so expect a wait if you’re coming in groups. • Stopped by the Cathedral too. Very central so it’s easy to get to. • Ended the day at Fazer Cafe which was recommended by everyone including the nice staff at the hotel. If you’re going, make sure you try one of the donuts 🍩 • Last day tomorrow - checking out a few more places before heading back. See you then friends ✌🏼” #WeWhoTravel
@jacknative takeover - “Day one in Helsinki. After flying in during a beautiful sunset, I landed, dropped off my bag and headed out into the city. The Christmas lights are up and there’s definitely a festive feeling in the air. Stopped in at Deliberi K7 Eatery for dinner. It’s an interesting spot with an eclectic interior, a mix of food, drink and a great atmosphere. Then I checked in at the newly finished Hotel St. George ready for a full day of exploring tomorrow! Goodnight people 💤” #WeWhoTravel #ad
@thecutlerychronicles takeover: "Here are some tips for spotting a good restaurant in Rome that I received from a local guide: __ 1) If it's got staff outside trying to entice you to come in, avoid 2) The menu should be short and seasonal. If it's a long menu that does everything - pasta, pizza, seafood, meat - avoid 3) If the staff are a bit dismissive and don't speak much English, the food is likely to be good! 😁 __ I hope you've enjoyed my takeover during my time in Rome - it is a truly wonderful city. More stories over on @thecutlerychronicles. Ciao! 🇮🇹" #paidpartnership#wewhotravel
@thecutlerychronicles takeover: "Hello from the Trastevere district in Rome 👋 If you want some time away from all the touristy spots, cross the Tiber river to Trastevere, a charming medieval neighbourhood and former working-class district. Amongst the narrow and lively cobble stoned alleys you'll find Roman trattorias, small markets, shops and artisan workshops. It's a great place to get lost and experience authentic Rome! 🇮🇹" __ #wewhotravel#paidpartnership
@thecutlerychronicles takeover: "When in Rome, eat Roman food! 🍝 Such as this fantastic plate of cacio e pepe from @daenzoal29 in the Trastevere district. __ Cacio e Pepe means "cheese and pepper" and the ingredients are simply black pepper, Pecorino Romano cheese, and pasta. Lots of people suggested I try this place for pasta and it did not disappoint! __ I'll be here over the next few days sharing some stories and snaps on my own account and via @hotelsdotcom - I hope you enjoy the trip! 🇮🇹" __ #wewhotravel#paidpartnership
