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! […]

asia adventure: ovolo hong kong

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 […]

  Wahh, this trip was awhile ago now and I have since been to Asia several more times, but oh well! Better late than never, right? …Right? Yeah, okay. This is just some random Hong Kong stuff. In case you don’t remember, back in December I did Hong Kong – […]

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 […]

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 […]

One of the things we did in Hong Kong was visit Macau. Macau is technically another country, and was a Portuguese colony until 1999. Macau is like Hong Kong — it’s part of China, but retains a lot of autonomy as a special administrative region. There are a bunch of […]

Our friend Kelvin, who works in publishing and lives in Toronto, happened to be in Hong Kong at the same time as us. Well, you know what I was thinking. FREE TOUR GUIDE! At first, I felt bad about taking advantage of Kelvin’s flawless Cantonese skills, but then he accidentally […]
