Cathay Pacific Economy Review Cebu (CEB) to Hong Kong (HKG) A330, Plaza Premium Lounge Cebu Review and Cathay Pacific Economy Review Hong Kong (HKG) to San Francisco (SFO) A359

Bird Scooter Review, Spin Scooter Review, and LimeBike Scooter Review in San Francisco

Bird Scooter Review, Spin Scooter Review, and LimeBike Scooter Review in San Francisco

San Francisco has been host to a ‘scooter saga’ for the last few weeks as several companies (that originally started in other cities) have started ‘dropping’ a big number of scooter rentals that come without a docking station on San Francisco‘s streets. So far, the process is entirely unregulated and some startups (like Bird) found […]

My experience booking a Turkish Airlines Miles&Smiles award ticket (Bangkok Sales Office)

My experience booking a Turkish Airlines Miles&Smiles award ticket (Bangkok Sales Office)

  Turkish Airlines Miles&Smiles requires you to visit a Turkish Airlines sales office to book an award ticket. While you can put flights on hold, the call center – for reasons unknown – can only price partner flights in miles but cannot calculate fees and extra charges (notably any fuel surcharges). The call center can price […]

Radisson Blu Kochi Review

Radisson Blu Kochi Review

The Radisson Blu Kochi is a new building along one of the busy roads leading into downtown Kochi in the neighborhood of Ernakulam. I was expecting a ‘grand’ Radisson Blu, given the luxury aspirations of the brand and the typical attentiveness and grand luxury of Indian hotels. However, the building is VERY understated and more […]

Le Méridien Kochi Hotel Review

Le Méridien Kochi Hotel Review

Le Méridien Kochi is located south of the city near the main highway on a huge piece of land, including its own lake. There is no way to avoid the ‘resort fee’ once you get through the entry gates. Check-in was done quickly at this late hour (after midnight) and a passport copy was all I […]

Does a credit card Collision Damage Waiver insurance apply for peer to peer car-sharing like Getaround and Turo

Getaround (my Review of the service) has recently changed its insurance policy. Instead of the full coverage for liability (damage you do to others) and a collision damage – this is the insurance policy. Liability Coverage Renters are covered in our insurance policy up to the liability limits carried by the vehicle owner or with […]

Cathay Pacific Business Class Review Hong Kong (HKG) to Bahrain (BAH) via Dubai (DXB) A330 CX 745

After my 10-day ‘layover’ in Hong Kong (and after exploring Phnom Penh and Hanoi), I was curious to see how much I’d like the A330 configuration for Cathay Pacific Business Class. I decided to use the Terminal 1 lounge across from Gate 4 – ‘The Wing’ – and to my surprise it was rather empty that […]

Radisson Blu Libreville Review & Park Inn Libreville Review – Are these the two properties with the world’s meanest staff?

Radisson Blu Libreville Review & Park Inn Libreville Review – Are these the two properties with the world’s meanest staff?

I decided to combine my Radisson Blu Libreville and Park Inn Libreville reviews into one, as both properties share one building and almost all facilities. The properties are located about a mile from the airport and 5 miles from the city center in one of Libreville’s best neighborhoods along the seashore. The hotels operate free […]
