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.

Maybe Liechtenstein - Part 6 (March 2017) Before leaving Switzerland, we spent a night out by the airport as we both had morning flights the next day.  We arrived at the Radisson Blu hotel and checked in for our last night in Switzerland.  I was looking forward to the stay as they have a huge … Continue reading Back to North America: NYC edition

The journey started out decently.  I found a cheap flight to Istanbul on … Continue reading 3 ticket, 6 fights, and 56 hours…

The long road home… via Japan.

My original plan was to fly home from Melbourne via LAX.  I was very excited because I'd manage to score a first class ticket on Qantas!  Unfortunately, with my change in plans, I ended up having to cancel the ticket 😦  So instead, my flight home ended up taking me back through Japan on Japan … Continue reading The long road home… via Japan.
