Rebooking after Frankfurt Industrial Strike Flight Cancellations

So a few days ago I booked a student/youth fare with SAS from Frankfurt. This was to align nicely with the super cheap business class Spain to Germany LAN fares. Unfortunately a day after booking I heard from the German travel agency there would be coordinated strike action across most/all German airports....

Marrakech to Casablanca by Train

Marrakech is the tourist centre of Morocco but the country has so much more to offer. I was heading north through the capital. The cities are well connected by multiple forms of transport, but the pick of them is the train. It’s a modernised service and the station at Marrakech is better than...

Renovated Cathay Pacific Pier first class lounge at Hong Kong

Cathay Pacific offers a true gluttony of lounges at Hong Kong International Airport. This has developed over time with business class lounges across the terminal space.

Lausanne to Zurich first class by train

A quick post on travelling through Switzerland by train. We started in Lausanne, which sits along Lake Geneva and goes up the hillside. From the bottom at Ouchy you have the lake and the Olympic Museum. According to Wikipedia (!) Lausanne is the smallest city to have a full metro...

Singapore to London, Qantas A380 First Class

After a day in Singapore I now had the original flight booking that drew me here. This would be my first proper long haul first class experience, no less on the A380, on a thirteen hour overnight flight from Singapore to London. The flight experience was no less than excellent, providing...
