my 2015 in travel

December 31st, 2015 / by / in: food / 2 Responses

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! […]

on the UP!

I went in expecting to hate the UP Express. I ended up… well, not hating it. The UP Express is the Union-Pearson Express, Toronto’s new train from downtown to Pearson Airport. Until now, your only options to get to/from the airport were cab, Uber, or TTC. There used to be […]

After the hospital visit in Taipei and some calls to make sure Mike wasn’t totally voiding his insurance by flying while sick, we were off to my favourite place in the world, Tokyo! Flying on my favourite airline (ANA), no less. I liked that we got to fly into the […]

At some point last year, I booked a super cheap deal on Delta — Toronto to Hong Kong and back for $400. That’s a good enough deal for me to fly outside of my beloved Star Alliance, especially since it was around Christmas. While I love Hong Kong and its […]

Yeahhhhh, so PVG (Shanghai Pudong International Airport). Not the greatest airport in the world. Not quite as nice as PEK (Beijing). On our flight to Shanghai, we had stocked up on tasty snacks before the flight since we were flying United and their economy food is edible at best. We intended to […]

So these photos are from almost A YEAR AGO now but I just never felt like putting the effort into writing about this trip. I know I’m a weirdo — I’ve never had any real interest in visiting Italy. I mean, I wanted to go in the way that I want to go to […]
