Kathmandu Airport Arrival Experience

After our awesome Etihad A320 flight from Abu Dhabi, we were hoping for a quick and easy Kathmandu airport arrival experience. Well, we’d come to learn that quick and easy are two words that are rarely spoken in Nepal. We arrived off of the bus from our remote stand to the terminal to find this welcoming sign… There was a wall of machines to assist with the Visa Processing, but this is what happened when you got close enough to...

Is Cuba Safe?

Is Cuba Safe? It’s a simple question but not an easy answer. We want to be careful in issuing a blanket statement of “yes” or “no” but instead offer you our experience spending three days there and let you draw your own conclusions. Daytime Usually when you’re walking around a major city in the daytime, you’re more likely to be attacked by people selling tours and begging for spare change than in any real danger. Neither of those is...

The rules of WiFi in Cuba and how to stay connected

Cuba is a developing country, and because of that staying connected to WiFi can sometimes be a challenge. Spend any amount of time away from a wifi signal or cell phone signal while you’re on vacation and you might go through a bit of withdrawl. Never fear, WiFi in Cuba is strong and plentiful, as long as you know where to look. Cuba WiFi hotspots You’re not going to find Wi-Fi at restaurants, bars, or any other place where...

The Havana Airport Departure Experience

The morning of our Havana airport departure we just decided to take it easy. We woke up late and then went shopping at a grocery store to see if we could bring back some rum and coffee. The grocery store experience was quite shocking and unlike anything else we’d ever experienced before. We will have a future post on that’s in the coming days. On our way, we saw one of the taxi drivers outside that helped us the night...

Two of the most amazing Cuban restaurants you’ll find in Havana

Finding good food isn’t that difficult Havana, as there are tons of restaurants. But for good Cuban restaurants you’ve just got to know where to look! A quick google search will give you some rough ideas, but the best way is just to ask a local! Just like any city that relies a lot on tourism, you can get sucked into a lot of tourist traps, and restaurant tourist traps are no exception. It’s not uncommon for us to be walking around...

Our Delta upgrade just cleared as an Alaska Elite!

To anyone following airline news over the past 2 years, it will come as no surprise that Delta and Alaska are frenemies. Alaska and Delta used to have a very strong partnership but over the past few months things have gone sour. Back on December 19th, Delta and Alaska announced that they would be cutting ties as of May 1st. Any flight that you booked prior to December the 19th and the ended before the 1st of May would earn miles and...

Eating Like a Local in Havana

Whoever said Cuban food sucks must be a bit confused or they’re probably just talking about Cuban food in Miami – where such menus include just ropa vieja, beans and rice. But there’s so much more to it than just that. Part of the food experience in Cuba is to understand the way Cubans interact with food. As anyone that’s ever gone to school and learned a bit of history would know, it isn’t the easiest for some food staples to make it...

Review, Four Points LAX Airport

Review, Four Points LAX Airport

Two days before we left for Havana, I realized that I hadn’t yet booked our accommodations for our overnight in LAX. Our flight landed at 9:30 pm into LAX and left at 8:55 am the next morning. Luckily, we found a great deal at $89 a night at the Four Points LAX airport. The shuttle service is continuous and non-stop 24 hours to and from the airport, so just head out of the baggage claim area and look for the red “Hotel Shuttles” sign....

Greetings from Havana, Cuba!

Greetings from AMAZING Havana, Cuba! Over the past few days, there has been a lot of talk on some of the blogs all over the web (not just on boarding area) about how Cuba sucks. I mean, I won’t sugar coat it, people have been saying some pretty harsh things. But, as we’re sitting in our room with free wifi (and FAST wifi), sipping on a 50 cent mojito and eating homemade chocolate for $1, I can’t help but...

El Nido, Palawan, The Philippines. The Adventure Begins

Oh, what I wouldn’t do to be back in El Nido, in Palawan island. Well, I wouldn’t fly ANA from SEA to NRT to MNL again, for starters. After a less than comfortable experience flying there and getting to the island, the El Nido airport was a really unique and warm welcome, and not just because it was an ungodly 95 degrees. We had done some research and we knew that the only way to get from the airport to the hotel would be...
