Travelling Home in Etihad Apartments

Travelling Home in Etihad Apartments

Our route home from Japan included a leg from Abu Dhabi to New York (JFK) on the Etihad A380 in the Apartments. The leg is the reason why we planned this trip to Japan in the first place, we managed to get a points ticket in order to enjoy a one-of-a-kind travel experience.


The Journey Home - Japan August 2016 Trip

Today we started our journey home to Toronto. We started from Sapporo and flew to Haneda (Tokyo) tonight. We are staying the night at Haneda and the really journey starts tomorrow. We are taking JAL Business class to Singapore, Etihad Business to Abu Dhabi, and then Etihad Apartments (First) to New York where we transfer to American airlines for our final leg. It will be an exciting adventure, and a long one.

Japan - August Trip

Today we embark on a 10 day trip to Japan. What prompted this trip was an opportunity to fly home using points in the fabulous Etihad Apartments. More about that later. So building around this flight we decided to travel to parts of Japan we have yet to explore: Sapporo and Nagoya.

Choose-Your-Own-Adventure: California Accommodations

Normally I am a hotel traveler when I go on holiday; it’s the fastest simplest way to make a plan of where to stay. From individual hotel sites to aggregate sites like Expedia, Kayak or Hotels.com, I’ve always done quick and easy online bookings to secure my travel plans. Last fall when I decided to do a little California roadtripping I figured it was the perfect opportunity to try out some new accommodations experiences and compare options along the PCH from LA to San Francisco.

Fallingwater by Frank Lloyd Wright

Fallingwater is a house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright nestled in the woods in Pennsylvania. I have wanted to visit this house for a while to check out this amazing piece of history and architecture. My curiosity was piqued when I started collecting Lego Architecture sets and Falling Water was one of the sets you could purchase. Finally, this past birthday, Brad special ordered the Lego set (it has been discontinued) so we booked a trip down to PA. My rule is that I won't build the set until I see the real thing, so I was excited to finally make it down.
