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

In order to get a good deal on tickets, I'm willing to fly a bit out of the way; okay a lot out of the way.  My flight home from Sweden was not only long, but ended up being longer than anticipated. The journey started out decently.  I found a cheap flight to Istanbul on … Continue reading 3 ticket, 6 fights, and 56 hours…

Flashback Friday: First Trip to the UAE

November 2015 Warning to my friends: if you move somewhere, I will come visit you.  This is not an empty threat.  Some friends who had relocated to Dubai found this out first hand 🙂 After a late arrival (or early morning depending how you look at it) my friends picked me up at the airport … Continue reading Flashback Friday: First Trip to the UAE
