Slainte!

How do you follow up a Christmas Day flight? With a New Year’s Day flight! For all the lack of memory I had for the post-countdown celebrations, I didn’t really have too much of a hangover the morning of. For which I’m pretty grateful for. And with all the expected shenanigans of NYE/NYD, we booked…

Edinburgh

8am train ride from Kings Cross station to Edinburgh Waverly takes just over 4 hrs to make the trip. And seeing as how we already had some wind, rain, and snow (very briefly) in London, I was slightly concerned about walking into a Winter Wonderland upon arrival. As the train ran through Northern England, we…

Hello London!

In my various travels across Europe over the last few years, the various folks I’ve talked to are always surprised that my travels have somehow kept me out of London. I was finally able to fix that little problem this time around. We took a Christmas day flight LAX-LHR on UA 923, which admittedly was…

KL

My flight out for HKT-KUL was an 8:40pm flight, but it was an int’l flight, and the airport was 1 hr away, so I had pick up from my hostel at 4pm. Flight got delayed, KUL (arrived in KLIA2) is an hour by train away from the city center, and coupled with a taxi driver…

Paradise, or so they say

I was gonna make a Thailand pun, but Phuket. Another airport arrival with no proper public transportation means I had to sign up with a minibus to take me an hour away from the airport to my actual destination. It’s made even harder by the fact that Phuket island is relatively large, and the main…

Into the Wilderness

Throughout my travels, I’ve always seemed to feel more at ease in the smaller towns than the big cities. Chiang Mai was just about an hr’s flight up from Bangkok, and CNX was just 15 min away from the city center. In a sense, the airport reminded me of BUR/LGB because it had just a…
