Celine: We are still coming. Don't worry.

We are on our way to Las Vegas and we have had to make an overnight stop in Houston due to a connection issue. Don't be alarmed, but it was a security issue.

One Day in Singapore

I'm travelling to Singapore for one day.

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

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.

Aloha Honolulu!

Aloha Honolulu!

In order to retain status, Brad had to work in a trip that will give him enough miles to once again reach 1K status with United. Brad will be heading to Hawaii for a whopping 4 hours, turning around, and then heading back to Toronto.

In order to reach my goal of 100,000 status miles with United, I'm going to fly to Singapore for a day. It may take me 24 hours to get there and 24 hours to get home, but Business First for cheap was very tempting.

Weekend in Costa Rica

Weekend in Costa Rica

Last night we returned from a very short trip to Costa Rica. We left on Saturday and got back into Toronto on Monday night. So two full nights in Costa Rica, it was a seat sale on Copa Airlines that paid us in United status miles and for $270 CAD return, who couldn't say no?

Japan, here we come!

Qsine on the Celebrity Millennium

Qsine on the Celebrity Millennium

When cruising, we always like to try out the premium restaurants on board. On this cruise, we headed to Qsine on the Celebrity Millennium. The restaurant is meant to be fun and modern, you order shared dishes via iPad that are creative and presented with flair. Some hits, some misses… at $45, we expected more.

A sign of good vacation is a sense of sadness as it comes to a close. My mood right now makes it pretty clear that this was a FANTASTIC vacation.
