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! […]

I know I just came BACK from Tokyo, but this is about visiting Tokyo on my previous Asia trip. (Yeah, yeah, I’m slow to update this, I know. Or maybe I just go to Tokyo too often?) Anyway, we had two nights in Tokyo on this trip, but I actually […]

On our last day in Bangkok, I woke up with a cold so I didn’t really feel like doing anything. I got some cold medication at a Thai pharmacy for something like $1 and spent most of the day being lazy. We got a late 4pm checkout at the Conrad thanks to […]

More photos from Tokyo. Like I mentioned, we were only there for three days, so we tried to cram as much stuff in as possible. DO ALL THE TOKYO THINGS! Cherry blossoms, ramen, sushi, izakaya, shopping, karaoke. A stop into Torikizoku, an izakaya from the Kansai region that’s always cheap and […]
