I hope everyone is enjoying their summer! I know I am, however for some reason, I didn’t travel much in July at all – only from Seattle to Kraków. That’s due to the fact that I just moved entirely back home to Kraków after completing uni in Seattle. July was truly hectic and my move explains the lack of posts on the blog.. so I do apologise… but my travel “ban” is lifted for now as I take off on a mini-RTW (round the world) trip later this week!

The only thing is.. that this time I don’t know where I’m going next… so this will be interesting and I want to “blog-live” during this mini-RTW. Since I’m in Europe right now, I want to head to Asia via the Middle East. The only thing I’ve got planned now is two days in the Middle East.. but I don’t know where to after that… this will certainly be an interesting trip as I want to wake up and decide where I’m going next. Consider it a mileage availability experiment. One of the two reasons why I’m heading to the Middle East first is because I’m craving Arabic food – like authentic Arabic food which is beyond delicious.

My Mini-RTW might include Dubai!

Since I haven’t travelled much in July, I want to travel more in August and therefore I want to visit a few places in Asia and spend a few days at a “beach” location.. Bali? Phuket? Koh Samui? To be determined! Suggestions are appreciated. I plan on flying some world-class airlines in the premium cabins (Lufthansa, Cathay Pacific, Qatar Airways, Singapore Airlines, etc.). Availability shouldn’t be a problem since Asia is generally not a problem with award availability… try going to/from the USA to/from Europe in the summer… it is a nightmare!

Anyhow, I’ve got to pack my Rimowa for my mini-RTW which begins shortly and I will update everyone soon!
