It’s not often that I hesitate writing about an experience in fear that the secret gets out and it ruins my very own paradise – this

Hotel Review: ‘The Inn at the Roman Forum’, Rome

Travellers evaluating accommodation options in Rome are spoilt for choice. Dizzying options await with countless hours of internet research passing by in a blink of an eye. I found myself stalking Trip Advisor late at night (on many nights!) desperately trying to find something that was both good quality and in a great location and


Sunshine Coast Airport

Passing through this regional Queensland airport today, I thought it would be great to take a few snaps and do a write-up on this booming gateway to the Sunshine Coast. The airport sits just north of the Sunshine Coast city of Maroochydore where it straddles the striking golden coastline. Its aspect gives passengers stunning views

Seoul Grand Hyatt Building

Hotel Review: Grand Hyatt, Seoul

After arriving on a long flight from Sydney, we jumped into a taxi and headed for our hotel in Seoul – a solid 40 minutes from Incheon airport. The taxi ride was rather interesting at night as we passed towering buildings with glowing flashing neon lights – welcome to South Korea! Arriving at the Grand

Cosmo Mongkok

Review: Cosmo Hotel Mongkok

On a recent trip to London I had the opportunity to stopover in Hong Kong, and wanting to immerse myself into the unknown, I booked a hotel off the tourist track. Neither the hotel or the city let me down and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Cosmo Hotel Mongkok. 5 minutes walk from the

Review: Asiana Business Class OZ602 Sydney-Seoul

To celebrate my 30th birthday we decided to fly to London for a couple of weeks of shopping and general debauchery. Thanks to some great tips on how to secure cheap business class tickets through US Airways, I was able to get these Asiana business fares for almost a steal (under $3000/ea return). Asiana hails

GPS enabled luggage tags

Shhh… Star Alliance and ‘luggage tracking’ electronic bag tags?

Losing luggage is more common than you think… You arrive at your destination ready to hit the sights when you realise that one vital piece of your holiday hardware hasn’t arrived with you – your luggage. Lost in the abyss of an airport underbelly, your luggage may or may not be reunited with you. Panic

Shhh… Is this the first shot of Virgin Australia’s new LAX lounge?

Until now, Virgin Australia has been using the old Alaskan Airlines lounge in Los Angeles for it’s trans-pacific passengers. It was (put simply) a hideous excuse for a lounge with ageing Alaskan decor and a lack of general amenities for travelling guests. That is all about to change. Renovations are almost complete in the LAX

Qantas domestic business class entree

Flight Review: Qantas QF577 Sydney to Perth (Business Class)

I couldn’t hide my disappointment. It had been years since I had travelled Qantas, let alone a flight departing at midday. I had neglected to remember the ‘no alcohol before 12′ rule in the business class lounge. As I bashfully glanced towards the bar fridge, I knew that I would have to settle for a beverage
