My Exhausting 40 Hours of Travel

It has been a really long almost two days and I’m ready to sleep for at least a week… if not longer. My 40 hours of travel began in Cusco, Peru and ended in Seattle.. but oh my god, it was the worst itinerary ever and with the additional delays, I was just so damn exhausted. It isn’t exactly easy to fly back from Cusco… Read More

Avianca FA Doesn’t Believe I’m in Business Class!

As if the trip back to Seattle from Peru couldn’t get any more, well, interesting… As I wrote yesterday, my friend and I were flying from Lima to the U.S., after a wonderful trip to Peru, and we were both treated like sh!t by the Lima Airport ground agents.. and I’m sure everyone was equally badly treated – so there’s no distinction between Business Class… Read More

Lima Airport: Where Airlines Treat Passengers Like Sh!t

Hello from Lima Airport where I’m not having the best end to my wonderful South American adventure due to the incompetence and rudeness of multiple airline staff. It has been a wonderful week, I spent most of it in Cusco and yesterday visited Machu Picchu, which was a real gem and a place I’ve wanted to visit for years. I also stayed at Tambo del Inka,… Read More

Lufthansa Breaks My Luggage, Sends New Bags 2 Days Later

Have I mentioned I love Lufthansa yet?! I was flying from Frankfurt to Kraków recently in Lufthansa Business Class on an Airbus A319 and checked some bags for the short-haul flight of one hour. I checked in semi-used bags that I’ve had for a few years now, though they weren’t damaged in any way. When I arrived in Kraków, I noticed one of the bags… Read More

LATAM is so Stingy with Award Availability

LATAM Airlines is the unified airline of LAN and TAM, both oneworld members. The two airlines are still in the process of the merger.. and it is taking ages to complete. A majority of the planes are still painted in separate LAN and TAM liveries, while the branding is all as one unified airline – LATAM. Personally, I really like the logo and branding of… Read More

When You Redeem LifeMiles on Avianca…

Hello from Lima, Peru! One of my friends and I are on our way to Cusco for the rest of the week before heading back to North America after spending some time in South America. We are currently at a really terrible Priority Pass lounge in Lima’s domestic part of the airport and the experience is awful… Anyway, we flew this morning from Santiago to Lima on… Read More

“Why Does Your Passport Have So Many Stamps?”

Hello from Santiago, Chile! I arrived yesterday evening from Buenos Aires and am staying here for the next few days before I continue my South American journey. I just wanted to share a small detail from my journey yesterday involving my passport. I flew Aerolíneas Argentinas from Buenos Aires to Santiago yesterday on a Boeing 737-800.. I mean there isn’t really a better way to use… Read More

Is Three Days in One Place Enough?

I travel a bit differently than most in that I don’t go to the major tourist attractions in each city, but rather walk around, get lost, and just enjoy where I end up – exploring different paths of a new place. Most often than not, I don’t spend more than three days in one place (unless it is maybe a “real” holiday where I’m on… Read More

Hola from Buenos Aires!

Hola from Buenos Aires! I landed in Argentina this morning, from Frankfurt, in Lufthansa First Class.. on Lufthansa’s longest flight. It was one of the best Lufthansa First Class flights ever – the crew was amazing and the food was delicious. The only downside is that I slept for nearly 10 hours! The total flight time was around 13 hours and therefore I didn’t enjoy… Read More

When You’re Alone in the Lufthansa First Class Lounge…

It is no secret that I love Lufthansa and their entire First Class experience – it is simply incredible from the moment you enter the airport to the moment you pick up your baggage at your final destination. I’m flying soon and as I wrote yesterday, it seems like I might have an empty First Class cabin all to myself. But what’s cooler in addition to… Read More
