United Airlines Flights to Ireland - Deal Alert

Late November / early December tends to be a bargain to fly from NYC to Dublin, Ireland.  I remember, when I was a lad - (all of 10 years ago!) the fare was ~$300 but those days are long gone. These days, $600 is a great deal and that just happens to be what's on offer for Thanksgiving (November 28th, 2013). On Wednesday night, I booked a direct flight EWR- DUB for the missus, wee man and I, for $750 per adult (traveling Thanksgiving weekend). On Thursday I just happened to re-check the prices and the fare had dropped to $600 so I was able to cancel the previous reservation using United's less than 24 hour rule and re-book for the cheaper fare. Don't you just love bargains..

Travel to Burma aka Myanmar

It was a brief but rewarding visit to this (almost) tourist free land before the recent chain of events.  Back then Burma was under the watchful eye of big brother aka the Burmese military machine.  Our movements were restricted and recorded in a manner I never thought possible e.g. Surrender passport at border. Register at local police station at each location visited. 

These images and the reception we received as strange outsiders will likely be soon lost forever as the country embraces democracy, freedom and mainstream tourism. I'm glad we got to experience the former but also glad the people of Burma will hopefully be better off, free from the shackles of military oppression.
