Japan bound! Or so we hoped…

September 2017 As I mentioned previous (in this post) my grandmother and I had booked our flights over on EVA airways, Vancouver-Taipei-Fukuoka.  Our departure date quickly approached and we were soon ready to start our trip.

Checking off South America: Bogotá, Colombia – Part 2

August 2017 Usaquén I managed to negotiate the Uber ride to the hotel.  Most of the uber drivers in Bogotá don't speak much English, so it was a broken mix of Spanglish, but it worked.

Lucerne Day Trip

Maybe Liechtenstein - Part 4 (February 2017) I love taking trains!  Maybe not as much as Sheldon (BBT reference), but I still think it's such a fun way to travel.  Luckily Switzerland seems to share my option.  The train system in the country is fantastic!  After deciding to take a last minute day trip to … Continue reading Lucerne Day Trip

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
