I’m privileged enough to be featured on BoardingArea.com this week, which is how many of you are finding your way here for the first time.
Anyway, I thought I’d make it easy for you to explore a bit. My goal as a blogger is to have a conversational writing style with great photography that not only shows you what some place looked like but also what it felt like. I usually meet at least one of those goals in my posts, so there’s always a reason to come back.
I certainly don’t claim to know it all, you’re just looking at my experiences through my lens (photo pun 100% intended). I’ll call it like I see it while trying to be as kind as I can along the way.
My two favorite trip reports are my 30th birthday round the world trip and my New Zealand trip. (note: this is before I started compressing my photos, so they might take a bit longer to load)
30th Birthday Round the World Trip: features Lufthansa old First Class, Singapore Suites, Cathay Pacific First Class, and stops at the Nurburgring, Oslo, and Hong Kong.
To Middle Earth: I spent a little over a week traipsing around what immediately turned into one of my favorite countries in the world
I really enjoy taking pictures at hotels and hope they’re some of the better ones you’ve seen. Some of my favorites are below.
Dubai was a great experience and I enjoyed my time there. The Park Hyatt Dubai was a big part of that, a truly wonderful property.
The Park Hyatt Beaver Creek is one of my favorite hotels in the world. I love the mountains and this place has a ton of character that fits with the area. The staff there did a great job of taking care of my mom and I on our trip.
And, of course, if you’re a blogger in the points and miles hobby you pretty much have to stay at the Park Hyatt Vendome in Paris.
I’ve been lucky enough to go on some great flights. I obviously have a flight reports page, but here are my favorites.
Singapore Suites Mega-Review. Back in October of 2014 some punk decided to steal a lot of my copyrighted material for his mega-viral post about flying in Singapore Suites. I got the internet on my side and ended up fighting back harder than I imagine the thief ever thought possible. And then I decided to fly in Suites Class again just to mess with him. This is the story of that flight.
My first Cathay First experience. Way back before I was the seasoned traveler I am now I was a starry-eyed newbie to the hobby and decided to go to Vietnam. As part of that trip I flew on Cathay Pacific. What a flight and what an experience, it showed me what flying could be.
Lufthansa First Class in the bubble. I had only flown in a 747 once before this flight and never up top. The seat made this flight even more special.
There are certain posts that I just loved to write. Here are two that, in my opinion, represent the best of my writing.
I did a random side trip to St. Gilgen, Austria, on my weekend jaunt to Europe. It’s one of my favorite towns in the world and I decided to do a detour at the last minute to visit again.
How to be a Poser: High Tea at the Burj Al Arab. I loved writing this. Talk about feeling completely out of place in one of the gaudiest places in the world! But you’re dang right I high tea’d and acted like I belonged.
All of that to say…welcome!
I hope you’ll find something you like here. I have a passion for sharing my stories with you and hope you’re intrigued, inspired, or at least entertained!
