Like I wrote in my previous post, a cancellation by SAS had me rerouted on Lufthansa and Air Dolomiti through Munich to Barcelona. It also had me downgraded from SAS Plus to Economy after the rebooking, for which I ended with a compensation of 400 EUR for the cancellation (or 40000 Eurobonus points, which I … Continue reading Review: Air Dolomiti Economy Class, Munich-Barcelona (Embraer E195)
I haven't been travelling much lately, but I recently had a small 48 hour trip to Barcelona.

I had planned to pop by Macau, however, as it seemed to be … Continue reading Hotel review: Sheraton Grand Macao, Cotai Central, Macau, China
