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. […]

flying peach

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 […]

YES! Finally. It only took me a month, but this is the LAST of the mini RTW posts! I will do a summary post at some point (including what the whole trip cost) but for now, here’s the last flight of the trip, FRA-YYZ. I think we were a little […]

HKG-FRA

The HKG-FRA leg of the trip was one of the longest flights of the trip — almost as long as YYZ-NRT. I’m a fan of biz class shell-type seats for long flights. I think I actually like them better than the Air Canada pod-type seats — at least when travelling […]

ICN-HKG

Another flight post! This one is Thai Airways ICN-HKG. Really, this trip was as much about the journey as the destinations. Trying new airlines and visiting new airports. I know most people hate flying, but I am (obviously!) not in that group. I love flying. I love airports. (But I […]

YYZ-NRT in AC J

I’m writing this from the United Club* in Narita Airport (NRT). My flight to Seoul has been delayed 3.5 hours, so I have lots of time to finish this entry! It’s funny because my flight to Tokyo was also delayed 3+ hours. I guess I’m just having bad travel luck, […]

PEK-YYZ

Finally, the entry where we fly home! Of course, no one loves a 13-hour flight in economy, but the trip home ended up being pretty awesome. And when we got home after 18 hours of being in the air and who knows how many hours of travel time, I said, […]

economy superpowers

Since my very long flight to China is in economy (wah!), I stare at my beautiful December itinerary and feel better. Of course, I did only pay $300 for the ticket to China. And it makes me feel kind of tough to sit for so long in economy. If I […]

steak and weirdness

September 22nd, 2011 / by / in: travel / No responses

Since my last entry was about makeup, this entry will be about steak. Well, sort of. I don’t actually eat steak. But I went to a steakhouse. A really weird one, in Tampa of all places. It was to celebrate my friend Adam taking the Florida Bar, WHICH HE RECENTLY […]
