Weekend in Lillehammer

So back in June I ended up taking a work trip to Oslo, and since I'd already made it all the way over to Europe, I thought I would stick around for the weekend.  I wasn't quite sure was I was going to to, but my original plan was to hop on a cheap flight … Continue reading Weekend in Lillehammer

Checking off South America: Bogotá, Colombia – Part 1

August 2017 Downtown and La Candelaria  The most common response I got when I mentioned I was travelling to Colombia by myself was, "Is that safe?"  Let's just stop that right there.  Yes, it's safe.  While there are definitely more pickpocket incidents and a few muggings at night, if you're smart and travel safe, you won't … Continue reading Checking off South America: Bogotá, Colombia – Part 1

Maybe Liechtenstein

Zurich

Maybe Liechtenstein - Part 3 (February 2017) I left Paris and hopped on my Air France flight to Zurich (still a part of my points ticket) and I got a chance to visit the Air France lounge for Schengen flights.  Unfortunately it was far away from my gate since the one closest to my gate … Continue reading Zurich

A Canadian in Paris

Maybe Liechenstein - Part 2 (February 2017) As I mentioned previously, I've been to Paris many times, but it had been a while since I spent more than a day there.  I ended up having the equivalent of three full days there (midday Monday to midday on Thursday) and I tried to fit in as … Continue reading A Canadian in Paris
