Cathay Pacific Airbus A350 Business Class Review, Vancouver to Hong Kong

July 31st, 2017|Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Reviews|

Introduction: Cathay Pacific continues to be one of my favourite airlines for their generous award availability, consistent premium class products, and fantastic route network to Asia from the west coast. I tried their first class product from Los Angeles to Hong Kong and business class from Hong Kong to Delhi on my crazy 11-day trip around the world earlier this [...]

SIDECUT Restaurant Review, Four Seasons, Whistler, BC

July 27th, 2017|Four Seasons, Hotels, Reviews|

Introduction: I decided to split this review into two separate posts as I felt there was just too much content for a single entry. Also, while it's not uncommon for me to try various restaurant options at a hotel, this stay was especially good, with the three of us all agreeing it was some of the best resort dining we've [...]

Review: Four Seasons Resort And Residences Whistler Deluxe Executive Suite

July 17th, 2017|Four Seasons, Hotels, Reviews|

Introduction: Whistler is one of my favourite local destinations, and I try to make it up there at least a few times a year. Located just 90 minutes from Vancouver, this resort town offers something for everyone, from world class skiing in the winter to championship golf in the summer. While we normally stay in the Creekside area, just south [...]

Review: ANA All Nippon Airways Boeing 777 First Class San Francisco – Tokyo

June 5th, 2017|Airlines, ANA, Reviews|

Introduction: You always remember your first... This was our debut international first class flight, and second flight on a trip around the world that included stops in San Francisco, Kuala Lumpur, Bali, Singapore, Munich and Denver. I originally hadn't planned to write a review for any of this trip (we took it in summer, 2016) as a lot of the photos are [...]

Review: Fairmont Hotel Vancouver Deluxe Room

May 29th, 2017|Fairmont, Hotels, Reviews|

Introduction: Staying at The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver has been on my travel bucket list for quite some time. Located in the heart of the city, this historic building is currently undergoing a renovation (complete July, 2017) that will see the magnificent castle brought up to modern standards while retaining all of it's unique charm and rich history. It took me a few [...]

Review: United Airlines Polaris First Class Boeing 767 Paris – Chicago

May 24th, 2017|Airlines, Reviews, United Airlines|

Introduction: I don't think United Polaris First class is on anybody's bucket list, including mine. Furthermore, United is in the process of eliminating first class on all long-haul flights, and the following information will be obsolete in the near future. Unfortunately when I booked my 11-day trip around the world, United was the only option crossing the Atlantic ocean without [...]
