18:50 Minutes to SIN: Is Anyone Ready for This?

18:50 to SIN is part of the Reunion Tour Trip Report. There are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know...

13.5 Hours in JFK: Wait, There Was Early Check-in?

Before I travel, I am required to read my Travel Lessons so I don't make the same mistakes I always make. I did so this time to my detriment. Let me explain.

Lot Airlines: Terrible Transit in Warsaw

The ground logistics for LOT are awful. It was a nightmare leaving JFK and it was not simple to transit in WAW.

JFK: Too Early to Check-In

I am paranoid when it comes to transport. En route to Warsaw, I had to connect in JFK. I flew jetBlue from San Juan to NYC at 11:50AM with a scheduled arrival at 3:45PM. Despite my 10PM flight, I was still paranoid that disaster would strike and harpoon my RTW itinerary.

100 GBP Carry-On Bags? Scammed by Ryanair & Trips.com

I have flown Ryanair before. I am aware of the cute ways it tries to maximize revenue. Whether it is charging for food or selling lottery tickets on board, Ryan is always looking to score a buck.

Like the Vaccine, Why Not Get TSA PreCheck?

"I need to do my own research." Those are the cringe-worthy words of the junior scientists who are skeptical of the vaccine. It should not come as a surprise but I have no patience for anyone who tries to justify not being vaccinated.

Priority Pass Registration: Remember Not to Forget

Rust is not the word to describe how unprepared and disorganized I have been on this trip. The corrosion of my travel skills from almost 2 years of travel was apparent from before I left and continued at Medellin airport.

VeriFLY: What’s My Favorite Word? “Stupid!”

While Colombia does not require proof of vaccine or a negative Covid test, it does require that a health questionnaire be completed at least one hour before departure. 

Don’t Route Via Panama

TPOL is off to Colombia to pursue his IQKhameleon dreams. The most convenient route used to be a direct flight from PR. With that option gone, the second most convenient route is through Panama. Except...

Connecting in Madrid: Pack Extra Time Part II

I may have been too cautious arriving from Lisbon via TAP at 9AM when my flight wasn't until 8:25PM, but if I was cutting it close I would've found myself with major anxiety in trying to navigate the airport to make my connection.
