I know I never finished any of my entries about Italy but well, Italy wasn’t as fun as Japan, so here’s more entries about Japan! Pretty timely (for once) too, considering I just got back last week. The Italy entries will remain lonely and cold in my Drafts folder for […]

las vegas and airplanes

February 26th, 2014 / by / in: travel / No responses

At the end of last year, I went to Las Vegas with my family. I didn’t take very many photos, except of the flights. Las Vegas is one of my least favourite places in the world, yet somehow I have been there many times. I ate a lot of overpriced […]

Everyone knows that Asia has the best airports and the best airlines. Seoul’s Incheon Airport (ICN) is one of my favourite airports, and it’s consistently rated as one of the best airports in the world.  I mean, how many airports have a indoor ice skating rink, a golf course, a […]

planespotting at fukuoka airport

You probably know that I’m a bit of a plane nerd (you might remember my entry about Haneda Airport), so it’s hard to pass up a little planespotting at a new (to me) airport. Fukuoka Airport (FUK) is ridiculously easy to access from downtown Fukuoka — it’s only TWO SUBWAY […]

flying peach, part 2

March 28th, 2013 / by / in: travel / No responses

As a follow up to my entry about flying on Peach from Osaka to Okinawa, I figured I’d post about the flight back. Only because it was kind of hilarious. Well, hilarious if you’re slightly snobby like me. Unlike at KIX, Peach has almost zero facilities at the Okinawa airport. […]

Although I love riding trains, airplanes are my one true love. So I was happy to be in Osaka because that meant I could try out Peach, Japan’s cutest and pinkest LCC (low cost carrier). Normally, I’m not so much a fan of LCCs and go out of my way […]

planespotting at haneda airport

January 21st, 2013 / by / in: travel / 3 Responses

A couple weeks ago, Mike and I headed to Haneda Airport not to take a flight, but just to look at planes. Because we’re nerds like that. We took the Toei Oedo line from where we live to Hamamatsucho Station, where we transferred to the Tokyo Monorail. Who doesn’t like monorails? […]

Once again, here I am on Air Canada 001, headed to Tokyo from Toronto. (I wrote about my last time on this flight here.) The weird part of this flight was that moving map wasn’t working so it seemed much shorter than 13.5 hours. I usually watch the map (obsessively) […]

Yeahhhhhhh… so I guess I kind of neglected my poor blog for awhile. I was busy! Sorry, blog. But I’m back! NOW I WILL FINALLY POST MY PORTLAND/SAN FRANCISCO PHOTOS EVEN THOUGH THEY’RE FROM A MILLION YEARS* AGO. And update on various other life things because I’m going to Japan […]
