After completing the tabulation of my spending breakdown while travelling in the Maldives and Sri Lanka, the numbers were surprising. Especially when I combined it with my spending breakdown while travelling in Nepal, one thing was made clear. The war between Ukraine and Russia is affecting travellers. The biggest expense on my trip to…
Travelling in Nepal is something I never thought was going to be expensive. After all, Nepal is known to be an affordable country to travel to. But, after tabulating the cost of our trip, it looks like it wasn’t expensive if we didn’t include the flights. But with the flights, the entire trip became…
Doing the Annapurna Circuit trek has always been high on my travel bucket list. There just seems something magical about doing the Annapurna Circuit trek that enticed me to one day visit this famous Himilayan destination in Nepal. Maybe it’s the thought of going somewhere remote and peaceful. The Annapurna Circuit trek is known…
In one of the most infuriating and nerve-wracking travel experiences yet, I was unfortunate enough to have to deal with Air Asia’s incompetent system. I’ve had a good experience with Air Asia in the past but this is the first time I’ve flown with them on a connecting flight. Let’s just say this is…

When people think of Sri Lanka, they think of the 2022 economical crisis where fuel shortage is rampant. However, I got a chance to travel there for 3 nights and 4 days at the end of April 2022. I soon realized that while there is truth to what the media portrays, it’s not the…

My impression of Costa Rica since going there is that it’s pretty much like the United States. There’s Americans everywhere (which is…
During my most recent holiday, I got a chance to visit Panama on my way back home to Canada. After travelling in South America, I noticed that the best way back to Vancouver is to fly out of Costa Rica. And on the way to Costa Rica, I can spend a few days in…
After my Aeroplan booking got messed up when one of my flight segments was cancelled, I quickly went online to see what are my options when it comes to flying out of South America. As you know, travelling during the peak Christmas season is a bad idea in general. A lot of people don’t…
