How to get from Hong Kong Aiport to the city

As far as I’m concerned, there’s really only one way to get from the airport to the city and it’s the Airport Express.  Sure, you can take a taxi or a bus, but I have no idea how much time that would take and I can’t imagine a taxi would be cheaper at all.  As…

Cathay Pacific First Class Review

I’ve reviewed Cathay Pacific First class before and but this is one of those products that always excites me whenever I get the chance to fly it.  The flight from San Francisco to Hong Kong departs in the middle of the night and arrives in Hong Kong early morning the next day (but just barely…

Air France – 777 Business Class

Flying home from Stockholm, I flew Air France because it’s an airline I haven’t flow before and I was interested to see the business class lounge in Paris.  The initial flight from Stockholm to Paris was a “regular” intra Europe business class seat (which is just a regular economy seat with the middle seat blocked). …

Stockholm Pass – Worth It?

I have to admit, I was really torn about getting the Stockholm Pass.  First, I don’t really like having to move to a schedule but of course with the pass, you’ll feel obligated to get the most bang for your buck. So, is it worth it?  I’d say it depends on your situation. If you…

Destination Stockholm

Much like it’s neighbor to the east, this city is beautiful.  Surrounded by water and green space that is a tribute to how much the Swedes value the outdoors, it’s easy to forget you’re in a major city. First off, yes they speak English and they speak it well.  Many places will even have menus…

Wilderness Hotel Nellim

Talk about a return to nature.  This campsite is rustic to say the least but in a  good way. Don’t expect to find a TV in every room or ultra fast internet here.  Your activities are outside and instead of using wifi to text someone, you’ll be expected to use your mouth to actually talk…

Aurora in Ivalo, Finland

I flew from Heksinki to Ivalo and Finnair and the flight is a short 90 mins long.  There are multiple flights to Ivalo and I came here mainly because I wanted to see the aurora. My thinking was this.  Although Rovaniemi is a more popular destination with more things to do, it’s right on the…

St. George Hotel – Helsinki

I stayed for 2 nights at the St. George hotel and it was different for sure.  The hotel has an odd layout that isn’t very traditional and the rooms are also an odd size.  I’m not sure what the building was before it was converted into a hotel but it’s just an odd space. My…

Destination – Helsinki

After a short 2 hour ferry ride from Tallinn is Helsinki.  Ferry tickets can be purchased at the port just before departure.  Just know that if the ferry leaves at 10:30, boarding will start around 9:45 and boarding will close at around 10:15.  The ferry will leave precisely at 10:30 so don’t think you’ll be…

Tallin Hilton

The Hilton is located about a 15min walk from the town center. It is a little out of the way for those who may not want to walk but the tram/bus stop of Keskturg is only one block away. This is also where you want to get off if you’re taking the tram from the…
