As y’all know, I’m still at school, and every year our school runs a “Creativity, Action, Service Week” where we go off on school trips for creativity, action and service (I’ll leave those explanations for my academics, though you can have a look at the idea in general here). Most of us just take this as an excuse to call it a normal tour trip out with friends as far as we’re concerned, as that’s basically what it is.

Last year I went to Kaohsiung, where I spent time in Kaohsiung, Tainan and Kenting near the fields and scenery. This year, out of a hiking tour to Guilin, an athletic tour to Kota Kinabalu and a biking trip to Lijiang, I chose the latter (obviously that’s because it’s the best tour out of the three…right?). I’ll be reporting about biking in this trip report given just how surreal it was.

Much like last year I’ll eke out a trip report regarding the “first world things” given the opportunity and leave the actual experience to my school assignments.

A quick update on trip reports, upcoming trips and faculty at YTHK…

Jason and I will be on quite a few trips, so we decided we’d throw these in as part of our periodical update to where we’ll be headed to next…

China Eastern to Lijiang

As y’all know, I did the trip back in May, and after a bit of work I’m ready to push out the report, hopefully in a few days (I dropped my phone down the toilet by accident – sorry Mom, so as I may not have access to WordPress for quite a bit of time, I’d better roll out the reports before that happens).

How to credit miles to SkyPass

As y’all know, I flew a roundtrip on Korean Air in business class back in April from Hong Kong to Seoul, and both flights exceeded my expectations.

I signed up for Korean Air SkyPass on the flight back, and I don’t think I regret it.

Next Trip Report: Four Legs in China Eastern Economy Class

I’ve heard that the China Eastern’s A321 is better than it’s thought to be.

I have some work to do in Lijiang through school next week, and obviously my school’s been looking at options because we weren’t notified how we’d be getting there until yesterday.
