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 […]

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. It’s also a short-haul flight and European carriers are known to use a EuroBusiness model, which is a […]

Lounge Review: Turkish Airlines International CIP Lounge

The first time I entered an airport lounge was over ten years ago.  I was flying to Peru with my god family and my godfather traveled frequently for work so he had status, thus getting us all access to a lounge in Dallas during our layover.  I can’t remember exactly what the lounge was like, […]

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.

Flight Review – Turkish Airlines A330 Business Class Hanoi to Istanbul

I had been looking forward to this flight since I booked in back in September. Turkish Airlines is highly regarded as one of the best airlines in Europe, if not one of the best in the world. They’re particularly known for their food, and believe it or not I actually enjoy airline food. To be […]

Our Cathay Pacific “Tour de Lounge” – Part Two

Sorry for the long delay in between Parts 1 and 2 of our “Tour de Lounge”! We’ve been pretty busy, between spending time with my sister Brittany and her fiance Chad to hanging out in the mountains of Northern Thailand, and finally settling down into our new jobs in Hoi An, Vietnam. Now that we’re […]

Our Cathay Pacific “Tour de Lounge” – Part One

One day, two flights, and as many lounges as we could fit in. This was the day Breada and I had ahead of us and it was one I had been looking forward to since we booked our tickets back to Bangkok. I was especially looking forward to our “tour de lounge”. Cathay Pacific (CX) […]

Flight Review – Cathay Pacific A330 Business Class Taipei to Hong Kong

I loved our two months in Taiwan, but I would be lying if I said I wasn’t excited to leave. Not because I was sick of the country, but because I had two business class flights on Cathay Pacific to enjoy. Not only that, but Breada and I had our “tour de lounge” planned for […]

Dragonair

Our First Business Class Experience!

After nearly 3 months motorbiking and teaching English in Vietnam, it was time to leave. Originally Hong Kong wasn’t on the planned itinerary, but since it’s a Cathay Pacific hub and I can book Cathay Pacific/Dragonair flights with my British Airways Avios, I figured let’s take a few days and see what the city is […]

United Club

Lounge Review : United Club, Hong Kong Int’l Airport

After our time in the VN Lounge in Hanoi, Anthony and I have decided that lounge life is officially the only way to travel.  When you’re backpacking long-term, getting anything for free always feels great and even spending a few hours in comfort and luxury without having to pay for it is a nice break […]

Lounge Review : VN Lounge, Noi Bai Airport Hanoi Vietnam

If you know me, or have read a few of my posts, you’ll know one of my hobbies is travel hacking. In this case, we flew Business Class from Hanoi to Hong Kong on DragonAir (now Cathay Dragon) for just 9,000 British Airways Avios + $16 each, which is a steal considering the same flight […]
