Air Canada Airbus A320 Business Class Review, LAX – YVR

October 10th, 2017|Air Canada, Airlines, Reviews|

Introduction My first class flight from Seoul on Asiana arrived to Los Angeles on time and I was through customs relatively quickly (it's so nice being one of the first off the plane and beating the rush). I don't like LAX much... It seems dated, huge, and very busy. I had a few hours to kill before my last flight [...]

Asiana Airlines Airbus A380 First Class Review, ICN-LAX

October 5th, 2017|Airlines, Asiana Airlines, Reviews|

Introduction: After spending a few hours in the Asiana first class lounge, it was time to board. Well, it was actually time to go through the terminal and buy a bunch of Korean face masks, and then head to the gate for boarding. I'll be honest, I had really high expectations for this flight.

October 4th, 2017|American Express, Credit Cards, Reviews|

American Express is my favourite credit card provider in Canada for many reasons. First off, I consider their Membership Rewards program to be the best overall for Canadians, offering flexible redemption options and unique transfer opportunities to frequent travel participants (Aeroplan, British Airways, and SPG to name a few).

Well, the brand new Cobalt card from American Express launched today and all of [...]

September 25th, 2017|Airport Lounges, International, Reviews|

Introduction: My business class flight on Asiana Airlines arrived in Seoul a little bit early, and I had about 3 hours before boarding my first class flight to Los Angeles on the Asiana Airbus A380! The airport felt really busy when I arrived, and the line for transit security was deep. I was a bit surprised there was no ground [...]

September 20th, 2017|Hotels, JW Marriott, Reviews|

Introduction: After a great stay at The Marriott Hotel Chongqing the week before, and another week of restless sleeps on my university dorm bed, I had Tyler book me a room for two nights at the JW Marriott Hotel Chongqing! The JW is a category 2 hotel, requiring 10,000 Marriott Reward points per night (or 3,334 SPG points per night), [...]

Marriott Hotel Chongqing, Review Of The Executive River View King Room

September 7th, 2017|Hotels, Marriott, Reviews|

Introduction: As part of my Bachelor of Education, I was invited to spend 3-weeks studying at Southwest University in Chongqing, China. Initially Tyler wanted to book me at one of the Marriott hotels in the city for the entire stay, but the school was located about 45-minutes from the city centre, which was really impractical. I opted instead to stay [...]
