Why I Travel Hack

I’m not rich, and likely never will be. Until a few years ago, my standard travel accommodation was a hostel dorm room and that was ok with me. I didn’t know any better. Flying business class was just a dream, let alone first class. Then, as I was browsing the internet, I stumbled upon travel […]

La Saigonese Lounge SGN

Lounge Review : La Saigonese Lounge Tan Son Nhat International Airport

As much as we love flying premium cabins, sometimes it just doesn’t make sense. For a flight that’s just an hour or two, a budget airline will suffice and Southeast Asia is chock full of them. The one big downside : no lounge access. Enter : Priority Pass!

Lounge Review – Apricot Lounge, Tan Son Nhat International Airport

Some people show up to the airport at the last possible minute. Others, like us, try to get there as early as possible to enjoy some time in the lounge before jet-setting to our next destination. In Vietnam this is especially true. The airport gates are a microcosm of the entire country : crowded and […]

KL Post3

Two Days In Kuala Lumpur

After Singapore it was time to move on to Malaysia.  We spent about two weeks exploring the country with our first city being the capital of Kuala Lumpur.  KL is a bustling modern metropolis that we both instantly liked.  It has the same bright light feel as Singapore, but with a little more of the […]

Qatar Airways

Mistake Fares : Book Now and Sort It Out Later

I’m writing this from 36,000 feet in the air, sitting in seat 3A on a Qatar Airways flight headed to Doha. Breada and I just wrapped up three weeks in South Africa, a country we’ve wanted to visit for years but has always been a little out of reach. We’re flying business class, which is […]

Booking the Trip of a Lifetime – Part Three

So if you read Part Two, you’ll know we used a mix of sign up bonuses from credit cards and some good old fashioned hustle to build up enough points for this trip, and you can too! It takes a little bit of time and effort, but anybody with good credit can use these tools […]

Bidvest Lounge, HLA

Lounge Review : Bidvest Premier Lounge, Lanseria International Airport, Johannesburg

I love having a quiet place to go when waiting for a flight. There’s nothing worse than having to sit for a couple of hours at a crowded gate and being forced to pay for overpriced airport food. I refuse to do it, and I suggest you all should too!

Singapore Post2

Two Days In Singapore

We’re moving pretty fast this trip.  During our last jaunt around Southeast Asia, our time frame didn’t have a solid expiration date.  This gave us the luxury of staying places for more days than most, and allowed us to have a fairly flexible itinerary.  This time, however, we only have three months.  This means our […]

Booking the Trip of a Lifetime – Part Two

If you read my first post, you’ll know we have quite the trip ahead. It took a lot of saving, planning, and research, but in the end it was worth the time and effort.  So how did we do it?

Booking the Trip of a Lifetime – Part One

How do you top a life altering trip? Easy, you plan another one! I wrote in my last post Breada and I decided not to teach in Vietnam like we originally planned, but we still had our ticket booked to go back. I’m not in the business of wasting anything, let alone two business class […]
