14 Months in 14 Pictures

It’s been a month since we’ve been home, and it’s almost as if it never happened. Lucky for us, we have the pictures as proof of our adventures! I literally took thousands upon thousands of pictures along the way, but I thought I would pick just 14, one for each month we were away. These aren’t necessarily my favorite moments (though they’re all great memories!) but the ones I thought really showed what our trip was all about.

Flight Review : Swiss Airlines CS100 Business Class Budapest to Zurich

This was the first of two flights on the day, and honestly the one I was least looking forward to. I was just personally looking forward to our long haul flight back to Boston a little more.

At this point he must have thought I was some ignorant American (and rightfully so), and proceeded to explain where the name Budweiser comes from and how the original Budweiser is really a Czech beer.

Lounge Review : NIA Lounge Noi Bai International Airport Hanoi Vietnam

Before we arrived at the airport for our flight to Istanbul, I was unsure which lounge we would end up in. Turkish doesn’t have a lounge of its own in Hanoi, so they use one of the two contract lounges at the airport. Continue reading “Lounge Review : NIA Lounge Noi Bai International Airport Hanoi Vietnam”
