Usaquén, Bogotá, Colombia

Usaquén, Bogotá, Colombia

29th November 2016 No Comment
Bogotá is the capital of Colombia and is pretty large, which is exacerbated by the fact traffic is terrible, especially when it rains in the city (which it frequently does). This is the reason why, although I’ve visited Bogotá twice now I can’t pretend to have visited most of the city. However, as the city […]
Café Pergamino, Medellin

Café Pergamino, Medellin

26th November 2016 No Comment
Although I’ll sit down at some point and do a separate post on Medellin more generally, I feel that Café Pergamino warrants its own post. Earlier this week I was in Medellin on my second visit to this lovely city in the heart of Colombia and the one thing I had to do was visit […]

Review: BA Boeing 747 World Traveller Plus (Premium Economy)

Today I flew from London Heathrow to Miami with British Airways departing at 9:00am. The scheduled flight duration for this flight is 9 hours 50 minutes. I flew in the World Traveller Plus (Premium Economy) cabin, and as it was very quiet it was a great opportunity for me to take some photos and put […]

I’m currently doing a lot of travel to the Americas, which often involves extremely long journeys including long flights of 8+ hours. Many of us don’t have the luxury of travelling in Business or First class, so have to make do with Economy, or Premium Economy if you’re lucky. Here are my top 10 tips […]

What’s in my clear plastic bag? In-flight essentials

One of the things I struggle most with as a frequent flyer has to be the limits on what liquids you’re allowed to take on board. Most of the time I’m pretty good at not trying to take huge amounts of liquids through, but there always is that annoying time in transit when you get […]
Munich, Germany (Christmas Market Special)

Munich, Germany (Christmas Market Special)

15th November 2016 No Comment
First of all, if you’ve never visited Munich, I’d highly recommend it! Located in southern Germany in the Bundesland (state) of Bavaria, Munich is full of culture and food all-year round that is representative of how non-Germans view ‘traditional’ Germany. It’s the home of Lederhosen, the Hofbräuhaus and a plethora of over 20 Christmas markets […]
Santiago, Chile

Santiago, Chile

8th November 2016 No Comment
Last week I travelled to Chile (aka the ends of the Earth!) for 6 days. I’d visited this beautiful country once before earlier this year around April time and the weather was so dreadful I was unable to fully appreciate the city of Santiago. This time the weather was completely different as Chile is approaching […]
Cairo, Egypt

Cairo, Egypt

1st November 2016 No Comment
I travelled to the land of the pyramids for the first time last month, visiting Cairo and (briefly) Alexandria. Although much of my travel is to more developed countries, I do relish the opportunity to travel to some more unusual destinations from time to time. I had no idea what to expect before I went […]
