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...

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...

Like Beer? Try some Bermondsey Microbrews and Craft Beers in London

Craft beers in London are making a surge onto the scene as of late, and Bermondsey microbrews are some of the best. Many breweries are opening up all around town. This isn’t your grandfather’s beer, as many unique flavors and combinations are being used to bring forward awesome flavors. We’ve been to London 7 times now and going on one of these walking tours was always on our list. For one reason or another we never had the...

Get a FREE trip to New Zealand Courtesy of … The Government?!

It may sound too good to be true, but right now, the government of New Zealand is offering free trips to Wellington for those who qualify. Everyone knows that good talent is hard to find, and that talent is even harder to find when you’re on an island nation so far from everywhere else. Wellington is known as the tech capital of New Zealand with a population of about 500k (including the metro area) which makes up about...

The sights and sounds of Old Havana

In 2019, Havana will celebrate it’s 500th anniversary, and it all started in Old Havana. The French burned it to the ground in 1556 and the Spanish built it back up just a few years later. Now, with the majority of the buildings in disrepair and the government working feverishly to get it built back up for tourism, the city Center (or Old Havana) is experiencing a resurgence. Cruising from site to site, you get a feel for the...

The Ernest Hemingway Experience in Havana

It’s no secret that Ernest Hemingway spent a large part of his life in Cuba, including his final years. There are monuments, pictures, plaques, and restaurants all over the country in his honor. Tour companies big and small also offer tours to head to his house outside of Havana and the bar that he used to spend a large majority of his time. We opted for a 1956 Ford Fairlane to take us around for the day, and what a beautiful choice...

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...

The Havana Chocolate Museum, a rich experience

Tucked away in a small and unassuming corner of an Old Havana street is a place known as the “Havana Chocolate Museum” or the “Museo del Chocolate.” For all intents and purposes, this really ISN’T a museum, rather a chocolate store with a small mini-factory in the back and a few display cases of some hot chocolate memorabilia, if you could call it that. Depending on the time of day, you might find that there’s a line outside. Never...

St Pancras Renaissance – The Booking Office Bar & Restaurant

Of all the times we’ve stayed at the St Pancras Renaissance hotel in London, we never ate at their Restaurant, the Booking Office. Mainly because we were under the impression that, being a bar, they would have primarily bar bites instead of proper sit down dinner dishes, and to be honest, we never stopped to check their menu. Big mistake.  As we had already arranged to meet with our friend and fellow blogger Anne...
