Good Morning Chiang Mai Tropical Inn Thailand

Good Morning Chiang Mai Tropical Inn Thailand We came upon Good Morning Chiang Mai when we were staying at another guesthouse next door to it and dropped in for breakfast one day. Eating in the courtyard by the pool, we realised that it was newly constructed, and had previously just been a café and bar. […]

Acer Restaurant Toronto Airport

Acer Restaurant Toronto Airport I love airports! Now, I realise I may be very alone in feeling this way – Airports can be stressful and sad places. Saying goodbye to my family in Australia and using LAX as a layover to Canada manages to hit peak stress and sadness in one trip! But my average […]

One King West Hotel Toronto

One King West Hotel Toronto We had one night left in Toronto before our long-haul flight to Thailand, via a quick layover at an ungodly hour in Hong Kong. We wanted somewhere close to the AirBnB apartment we’d been staying in for the past four weeks, so we didn’t have a nightmare with our suitcases. […]

Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa

Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa Posting this on a Monday morning is probably a little unfair… But it could also be great motivation to remind yourself why you’re at work – so that you can earn money to hang out in beautiful places where you can relax! Bora Bora has an impressive reputation. […]

The Hilton San Francisco Financial District

We used our HHonours points to stay at The Hilton in San Francisco’s Final District, the cheaper of the two Hiltons in San Francisco.

Review: The Hilton – Sydney, Australia

  Sydney’s Hilton underwent a dramatic and expensive refurb back in 2001. Prior to its revitalisation, the Hilton was looking tired and dated. The 70s glamour had worn off, and it was no longer considered one of the premier places to stay in Sydney’s CBD. The renovations restored the Hilton’s former shine, giving it a […]

Air Tahiti & Air Tahiti Nui Economy Flights Review

    Class, Seating and Tahiti Airport Our destination this time is Bora Bora. Tough life, yes? Getting to Bora Bora from Auckland, New Zealand, is a two-leg journey. It requires a flight on Air Tahiti Nui to Tahiti, then another flight on Air Tahiti to Bora Bora.  The Air Tahiti Nui flight TN102 is […]

Air New Zealand Review: All Economy Airbus a320

#200199289-001 /   Class & Seating On this trip, we’re flying on Air New Zealand Flight NZ718, all-economy Airbus a320 Sydney to Auckland. I’ve had some experiences with economy that have left me completely underwhelmed. Any American airline is a good example of this, as is the Australian Jetstar.  Virgin and Qantas have surprisingly […]

Lilianfels Resort & Spa – Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia

Picking a hotel for your wedding night can be a little stressful.  We wanted somewhere that was luxurious and comfortable. Somewhere with sprawling views of the bush and sky, yet easy to get to  our wedding venue on the cliff face above the Leura Cascades. I also wanted a place where I’d never woken up with […]
