The Millennial Travelers

Living in the DFW metroplex near the headquarters of American Airlines generally means we can fly direct to a multitude of locations around the world. However, when we came across a deal out of Boston on British Airways A380 in World Traveller Plus+, it was too good to pass up. And as luck would have it they opened their brand new Boston British Airways Terraces Lounge just a couple of months before our trip.

Since we are American Airlines Platinum members, or Oneworld Sapphire, we were given complimentary access to the British Airways lounge before our flight. It is important to note that lounge access is not included with the World Traveller Plus+ fare unless you are a Oneworld Sapphire or Emerald member. For a quick way to determine if your airline status matches to either Sapphire or Emerald you can visit the Oneworld status tier match website here.

Kerala | Kochi (Cochin)

Hello from a most interesting part of south India very south east Asian, water centric, great food, friendly people. Ayurveda was invented here.

Chennai | Madras

The Leela Palace Hotel had very comfortable rooms and the food the great. They even had mid century modern breeze way bricks. The city is big and I found fairly uninteresting as a tourist destination Lotus Chennai Uber Chennai airportMid century breeze blocks India Leela Palace Chennai breakfast Krispy Kreeme Chennai

Mumbai | Bombay

First, it doesn’t matter whether you call it Mumbai or Bombay. Bom bay is Portuguese and as you’ll remember they built a town here first.

It’s a complicated place. Poverty. How poverty is defined. What the government owes its citizens and what it doesn’t. More on that later. These pix attempt to explain a little about it. Gandhi

Dubai

My last post was on New Orleans which is about as much of a 180 from Dubai as is possible. This place is young, brash, opulent (ok, so is NOLA), conservative and wealthy. Like Las Vegas without sex. Enjoy the pix. Mumbai tomorrow!

New Orleans

Just spent a couple of days in NOLA before going off to India via Dubai. New Orleans is really one of the most beautiful cities anywhere. We did a historical bike ride, walked the French Quarter and drove around the Garden District. And ate well. Enjoy the pix.

Visiting Australia | Sydney Melbourne Pt Douglas

Australia | September 2017

Don’t suppose this picture is what you might first think of when thinking about Australia. We were a bit surprised as well.

If you look through this Flickr album though, you’ll see the usual things to, like the Sydney Opera House, a kangaroo and a tropical fish at the Great Barrier Reef. But you’ll also see pix from Melbourne (like the one above) and that’s a city that’s more like Hong Kong than what you might be expecting. And they have one of HK’s most famous dim sum places too. There’s a pic of that too.

Enjoy the photos.

Paris, Dublin and Ireland

In the balmy Spring of 2017 I flew to Paris for a couple of days, and then joined some happy returning EuroDisney travelers (not planned) for the Paris/Dublin flight, where I learned about apparently famous Irish potato chips.  I joined up with John in Dublin where he had been on business and we set off for the southwest of Ireland, starting on St Paddys’ Day. Kilkenny, Cork, Kinsale & Cobh were a fantastic 3 day trip!

The over the top phenomenal hotel I’m pictured in is La Reserve in Paris. Other fabulous hotels visited, among others, were San Regis, Le Meurice, Le Bristol and in Ireland the lovely Hayfield Manor Hotel.

Edinburgh & London Report

I visited Edinburgh and London this past November and here is my report, in photos. The hotels stayed in were The Balmoral, a Rocco Forte Hotel, a grande dame set above the railway station in Edinburgh.  And in London, another Rocco Forte hotel, Brown’s Hotel, a classic central Mayfair establishment which has been around longer than any of us.

I flew over in Delta’s quite nice Business Class, Delta One, and back in Upper Class with  Virgin Atlantic.
