Noone really seems to read hotel reviews, so let's try a different format. Earlier this year I had the pleasure of spending a week in Bali, Indonesia, in between stays in Sydney and Melbourne. Most of that time was spent at the Conrad Bali. At between $200 and $250 per night, it wasn't exactly a … Continue reading Conrad Bali in 15 pictures
Since Thai kept changing schedules and aircraft, I ended up in Business class on Singapore Airlines on the way home from Australia – not a horrible tradeoff, as it turned out.

Australia is about as far as it gets from Norway, so the journey there usually takes closer to 25 hours with decent stopover times. A few days ago I managed to book … Continue reading I booked it: My bucket list trip!
For my return flight from Hong Kong to Stockholm/Oslo earlier this year, I was hoping that the miles from my super comfortable business flight with Thai Airways from Bangkok to Hong Kong would have posted, since they were the very last ones I needed to qualify for SAS Eurobonus (and Star Alliance) Gold.
