I purchased a round trip ticket one month in advance to Seattle from New Orleans. The original purchase had the plane scheduled to arrive in Seattle on a late Thursday night. This was because I wanted to spend one day in Seattle prior to catching a separate flight from Seattle to Japan that was due […]

So I leave Perth on a 0530 flight to Kununurra (fine)… threeish hours there, only to drive five hours inland and swag in the bush for the night, 200 km from the nearest roadhouse (that means fuel, food, water, and people – all 20 of them). I am travelling at this point on my own […]

After a few relaxing days at Six Senses Ninh Van Bay’s sandy beaches, we headed back south to Ho Chi Minh City to catch our home bound night flight via Bangkok. We decided to try to upgrade to business class. At HMC ground staff was of no use and we were told to contact the […]

Last year we went to Rome for a week for my 30th birthday and brought our then 2-year-old. The flight there was no problem other than our stroller getting lost (but it was a cheap umbrella stroller so I wasn’t too put out). I’d actually flown with him several times before that and had learned […]

It is Spring Break 2013, and I am flying from YVR (Vancouver, Canada) to LAX (Los Angeles, California) with my high school band to go to a major music festival. The first problem is that all 100 students arrived at 5:30 am and had lined up waiting to be checked in. I arrived at 6:00 when […]
