Pulau Lankawi, Malaysia

Langkawi, aka the Jewel of Kedah is a beautiful group of islands off the West coast of Malaysia. This was a welcome splash of beach isolation after the hustle and bustle of KL. It's a tad (x 5) more expensive than it's Thai island cousins in the North but has a very different / more affluent/private vibe.

Babies in Airport Lounges

What do you think about bringing babies into airport lounges? Today we took the wee man into the United Airlines lounge in Boston as we had a 3 hour layover and I have a bunch of free passes which get you free beer and wine and a measly selection of snacks.

Curious to know your thoughts?

Baby on Board

We flew Boston to Dublin last week on Aer Lingus using Avios points which is a points bargain and avoids fuel surcharges.

Malaysia - Kuala Lumpur

KL is a food lovers paradise with a fusion of multiple Asian cuisines, Indian, Chinese, Thai to name a few but Malaysia has stamped it's own twist on these classics. The Petronas towers are the most infamous landmarks and the city has an average temperature of 30C/90F year round. Shopping is a serious past time for those seeking to escape the heat with 60 large malls. The food courts in the malls are excellent in terms of quality and value and a far cry from the deep fried crap served up in Western malls .

The many faces of Singapore

I've been on several trips to Singapore and was never disappointed. It has an interesting mix of East meets West with sightseeing, business, expat party life, diverse ethnic people / food, shopping and bizarre pampering.
