My favourite packing tips

Packing is always the element of going away which I have a love-to-hate relationship with. I start off by being very organised and gently placing items into my suitcase and checking them off my list. Fast forward to the last-minute; and you’ll find I literally just throw things in from the other side of the living room. […]

My Experience of Global Entry

I recently took the plunge and signed up to Global Entry, a programme which was created by the U.S. Government that gives pre-approved clearance to low-risk travellers entering the country. Basically, you are expedited through immigration and customers, which we all know can take quite a while at airports like JFK, MIA and LAX to name a […]

Review: British Airways i360

I recently had the opportunity to visit the British Airways i360 – a new and unique tourist attraction in the city of Brighton and Hove. Designed and conceived by David Marks and Julia Barfield of Marks Barfield Architects, the same team behind The London Eye; the i360 features a 4-metres in diameter wide tower and a […]

Tried + Tested: Mobile Check In with Air New Zealand

A few years ago, passengers would need to stand in a queue at the airport to check-in for their flight a couple of hours prior to departure. Today, we are able to check-in remotely up to 24-hours before – which saves precious time on the day. The simplicity of online/mobile check-in is fantastic and its something […]

Inside the world of In-Flight Entertainment

Whether you’re flying long-haul from London to Atlanta, or perhaps domestically across the US; the chances are there will be at least an in flight entertainment system at every seat. And IFE is a big thing, but how is the content actually chosen? Airlines spend millions each year on ensuring they offer their passengers only […]

Review: Star Alliance Business + First Class Lounge at LAX

I was fortunate enough to visit the Star Alliance Lounge within the Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX. The $1.9 billion terminal opened in September 2013; and features a plethora of new and exciting retail and dining options; including an Umami Burger and the first Starbucks Evenings airport location on the West Coast. TBIT is […]

In a continuing series; today I’d like to focus on some of the newer updates to the popular 30K plugin. If you don’t know what I’m on about; you really should read my previous post here, or the 49-word description below: 30K is a great way to get an overview of the potential (air)miles you […]

British Airways have announced a new service from London Gatwick to Oakland International in California. This is very exciting news for the premium service airline who will now be offering customers a new and exciting destination from the West Sussex airport. This also marks BA’s first service to California from Gatwick – which I am sure […]

Hotel Review: Four Seasons Resort Orlando

Less than five miles away from Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom; the Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort is a true gem within the realms of Yesterday, Tomorrow and Fantasy. Since opening last summer, the resort has certainly got people talking; just take a look on social media. Already, it has […]

Airline Meals: What’s all the fuss about?

Over the past few years I’ve been fortunate enough to travel on a fairly regular basis to a variety of long-haul destinations, which has meant eating plenty of airline food. If I am being perfectly honest; I actually don’t mind it. I know it’s rare to come across someone who actually looks forward to eating an […]
