Philippine Airlines (PAL) reaching for the stars!

I have just come back from a relaxing 10 days in my homeland the Philippines, visiting my folks, catching up with friends and all the extended family members. Everything went smoothly the moment I stepped onboard my Philippine Airlines flight from Sydney to Manila and onwards to Davao and vice-versa. Considering the drama that has taken place before I flew out, the Xiamen airline incident that paralysed airport operations for few days as well as lingering wrath of recent super-typhoon.

Salt Grill by Luke Mangan onboard Pacific Eden

The first time we experienced the taste of Salt Grill by Luke Mangan was last year during our first cruise with Pacific Eden. Although you pay to dine here, this onboard restaurant is very popular, lunch and dinner reservations get fully booked within hours of boarding. Despite our attempt to book early, we ended up on the waiting list, which is the next best option as it usually pays off, thankfully the lovely staff were able to accommodate us for lunch and things even got better when Luke Mangan came to say hello at our table. 

Hamburg to Munich by DB ICE train

After spending a lot of time walking and exploring a city sometimes you just feel the need of a relaxing journey to your next destination. Although flying is the fastest means of travel to reach your next port, it can still be very tiring.

And when you reach your destination, often you’ll find the airport is miles away from the city centre and a new set of obstacles just to reach it.
