I travel today so I can have memories tomorrow. And nothing, beyond blog posts, is better for capturing these moments than the perfect picture. It is stressful to secure the perfect photo. It's not always organic.
I begin this review with the sad news that SQ no longer flies from Houston to Moscow, Russia. The new routing is Houston to Manchester, England. That's the only negative you will find in this report as everything else was perfect.
I once asked the question, "How long is too long at the lounge?" Personally, I like to get there as early as possible and take my time drinking, eating, and mingling. Before my SQ flight to Moscow, I arrived at the Amex Centurion Lounge in Houston hours before my flight, excited for what may be the best airline in the world in terms of service.
It's a Hyatt Place. I've stayed at enough of them at this point to know what I'm getting myself into. The room is spacious, the bed is comfortable, but the soaps, cleverly named 1-2-3, are nothing special.
