Begpacking – the latest trend in white privilege!

In what seems to be the latest trend of travel white privilege run amok, apparently there has been an uptick of ‘begpacking’ around the world. For anyone who’s wondering – just like I was before I came across the term- a ‘begpacker’ is apparently mainly a traveler from a western country who decides to backpack, but since they don’t have a lot of funds to do so, they resort to begging. I learnt this after I ran into this LeMonde...

Fly the UnFriendly Skies – United Drags Passenger Off Plane

After a rather terrible PR coverage a few weeks ago, United went ahead and screwed up even more. News broke today that a passenger was forcibly removed from an overbooked flight causing outrage among the millions who have seen the videos. The issue came up after the airline, which is in the business of overselling their seats in hopes that they wouldn’t incur in any losses in case of last minute cancellations, found themselves in need...

Virgin Atlantic Seattle to London New Route

Virgin Atlantic landed its inaugural flight from London Heathrow to Seattle at 3pm local time, and being fanboys of everything Virgin and always curious about new ways for us to get to the places we love, we decided we wanted to be there for the event and press release. Luckily, Virgin Atlantic was kind enough to have us as guests and we couldn’t have been more thrilled about it. Virgin Atlantic will service this new route...

Emirates vs Etihad: Battle of the Seats

Once again we’ll start this post agreeing that when it comes to First Class and luxury, the Gulf carries are most definitely the way to go, as they offer more than any other airline does for similar routes. From their top notch champagne and caviar service, to their on demand meals and their spacious seats and suites to the million amenities, one can’t help but feel pampered at 40,000 feet in the air. But when it comes to...

Huge Alaska Airlines Virgin America Merger News

Alaska Airlines just announced their vision and plans for the future of the airline after its merger with Virgin America in their latest blog post. Here are some of the Alaska Airlines Virgin America Merger changes coming soon. The words they used to describe the vision for Alaska Airlines is “fresh” and “modern”, which I’d say is about all Alaska Airlines has been needing for a while, and something I was...

Emirates vs Etihad: Battle of the Showers

When it comes to First Class products, we’ll have to agree that no one does it better – or at least not as luxurious – as the Middle Eastern carriers, and their A380 services are far superior in comfort and amenities that any of their competitors serving similar routes. But when it comes to on-board showers, how do they stack up? This is Emirates vs Etihad: Battle of the Showers! Emirates Shower Spa Emirates offers...

St Pancras Renaissance Hotel – Haywood Suite

As is our default whenever we visit London, we booked ourselves a Junior Suite at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel. Not particularly because this is a default hotel, since this really couldn’t be anything further from a standard hotel. For anyone who doesn’t know which hotel we’re talking about, you may have caught a glimpse of it in the Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets movie when Harry and Ron aren’t able to make their...

Cassie De Pecol No es la Primera Mujer en Visitar Cada Pais del Mundo

Cassie De Pecol, una viajera estadounidense, ha dominado las noticias desde hace unos días por haber viajado a todos los países del mundo.

En su sitio web, De Pecol alega ser: La primera mujer documentada en visitar todas las naciones soberanas (cuestionado) La primera mujer estadounidense en visitar...

A Valentine’s Day Love Letter to my First Love

I think it’s no news the love Jon and I have for one another – strong enough to survive whole weekend trips to multiple Walmarts for routine MS for a few years, and definitely strong enough to fly across the globe in Economy for 28 hours to meet with him for just a few days. But, in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, it also should be no surprise when I tell you that he, and I’m sure he would agree with this, is...
