Review: Korean Air First Class Lounge at Seoul Incheon (ICN)

On our trip to Singapore and Bali, we planned a full day layover in Seoul, South Korea, in order to get in a tour of the DMZ. This full day layover would end up giving us a couple hours in the Korean Air First Class lounge in the morning, after landing on our A380 flight from LAX, and a couple ...

Video Overview: Korean Air Kosmo Suite

Last week I flew on Korean Air First Class Kosmo Suites on two different planes: the A380 and the 777-300ER. From time to time, I enjoy making travel videos, and I compiled footage from both flights to make a video that I think outlines the cabin features and service pretty well. Let me ...

Booking a Singapore Airlines Business Class Ticket with Virgin America Elevate

Virgin America is often brushed aside by frequent fliers. People generally acknowledge that their flying experience is better than most domestic carriers, but the Elevate frequent flier program, while having improved over the past few years, is still not completely up to par. While I can't disagree ...

El Monte Sagrado has had my eye for some time now. When Marriott first introduced the autograph collection, this property was in the first batch of properties included in the release. The pictures on the website looked beautiful, and I had always wanted to ski at Taos Ski Valley. For the past ...

I just ate New Mexican green chile for 5 days straight. And I want more.

My wife and I just spent 5 days in Taos, NM. I'll have a few upcoming posts about it, including a review of El Monte Sagrado, a Marriott Autograph Collection property. But for now, I think it's worth admitting that my favorite type of food may be New Mexican... and my favorite ingredient is probably ...

Video: Showering on the Emirates A380

I made a video of myself showering on the Emirates A380 :-). Okay... it's not actually as creepy as it seems! Mostly filmed from the first person perspective. For those of you curious about what the Emirates A380 shower spa is like, hopefully this provides some clarity!
