Crowne Plaza Istanbul – Harbiye Review

Crowne Plaza Istanbul – Harbiye Review

Taking the Bus in Zambia Review from Lusaka to Livingstone (Victoria Falls)

Although you can fly between Zambia’s capital of Lusaka and Livingstone, which is near the Zimbabwe border, domestic flight prices are sky-high and most one-ways price out at $250.

Qatar Business Class Review Berlin (TXL) to Doha (DOH) A330 and BA Terraces Lounge at TXL Review

British Airways Terraces Lounge at Berlin Airport Review Unfortunately, I had a rather disappointing lounge experience at Berlin Tegel, as well as a disappointing overall airport experience. Check-in at the airport was cramped, as were the immigration and security areas. There was also a long bus transfer in the cold. The British Airways Terraces Lounge is a […]
