Royalty Vibes on SWISS AIR

Here’s a ‘lil #ThrowbackThursday

I absolutely adored the (then) new Swiss Business seat – a spacious workplace that converts into a comfortable flat bed at your wish. Travel professionals have voted Swiss Business Class the best in Europe on multiple occasions. I was able to score one of their limited single seating arrangements that pretty much resembles a throne. 

I traveled for 11 hours from Zurich, Switzerland to Hong Kong en route back to Guam back in 2014. Luckily, I had the chance to try their famous SWISS Taste of Switzerland – only served on flights departing from the motherland. This award winning concept allows some of the top Swiss chefs to create impressive seasonal dishes that combine the country’s unique flavors with their own personal twist.

What are the onboard amenities?

  • Comfort kits & on-board slippers (in the colder months, you can also expect a beanie or a neck warmer)
  • Flat bed seats that recline to a full 2 metre bed with an integrated massage function, air cushion, complimentary duvet & pillows
  • Noise reducing headsets
  • USB ports
  • Premier entertainment

What are the meal & beverage services?

  • Pre-departure beverage service
  • Customized dining (opt out from the full course & request a light meal)
  • Gourmet dessert selections (ice creams, fresh fruits, cheese and crackers, chocolates, liqueurs)
  • Mid-flight snacks (a necessity for long haul flights)
  • Selection of cocktails, beer, international wines, or freshly brewed coffee

World’s Highest Glass-Floor Observatory, Seoul Sky

travel

Lotte World Tower, Seoul Sky is the third tallest observatory in the world. It boasts the world’s highest glass-floor observation deck in addition to the world’s tallest double decker lift with a 4-sided monitor. If you’re extremely sensitive to elevation change like me, then prepare yourself.

As the tallest building in South Korea, Seoul Sky is the only place you can experience a 360 view of the capital.

My favourite part was Sky Deck – the adrenaline rush of floating 478m (119 floors) into the sky. There are two separate glass-floor observation decks on opposite ends; one with an optional photo station by the Seoul Sky staff and another with a more unique surprise experience.

Guess Who’s Back Home

I can’t believe it’s been over two and a half years since I’ve been back home. I missed the warm clear waters and my favorite foods growing up on Guam. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t as welcoming. Most of the days were gloomy or simply chucking in down.

My friends and I decided to take a trip down to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for our last undergraduate spring break back in April 2016. We spent our four days keeping distance from the typical college crowd and explored the city with Cabo Adventures.

Day 4 | Luxury Sailing
We spent our last full day in Cabo San Lucas sailing the Sea of Cortés. We were welcomed onboard with bottomless mimosas, shrimp skewers, and my favorite – chips & guac.

Day 3 | Swimming with Whale Sharks
This was #handsdown my favorite experience in open water. Born and raised on a tropical island, I’m naturally drawn to the ocean. It’s always been on my bucket list to dive with sharks, so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to swim with the largest known species. Words cannot describe the humbling experience being alongside these gentle giants.

Day 2 | Outdoor Adventures

As an adrenaline junkie, I was beyond excited to start my first full day of outdoor activities. After our introduction and safety briefing, we zipped across beautiful canyons – part of a UNESCO protected biosphere, rock climbed, balanced on suspended bridges, bungee jumped, and drove through the dusty desert in our very own ATV.

Day 1 | Getting Situated
Playa Grande Resort & Grand Spa is located on what seems to be a private beach – an ideal location without the infamous spring breakers. It’s also a good alternative for families with children.
