I know I’m super behind in updating this blog but I figured I’d post some travel highlights from the past year. I travelled to Europe and Asia, flew on some of my favourite airlines, and got in on some excellent mistake fares. Here’s hoping that 2016 is just as fun! […]

In Hong Kong, we stayed at the Ovolo Noho, which is part of the Ovolo chain of hotels. For a fairly cheap hotel (I think we paid around $160 a night), it was really great. It’s exactly the kind of hotel I like (boutique style, small, modern) and the location […]
