Which Products Are Next Up On Our Review Roster?

Jason, Ethan, Mallesh and I have all been working on our exams throughout  the past few weeks, so I apologise for the lack of posts. From June onwards, we have some very fun travel planned, which I’m very excited for. I figured it was worth giving an update on which reviews you guys would get to see over the next couple of months.

If you’re new to the blog and stumble upon this post, we’ve done 200+ reviews of countless flights, hotels, and airport lounges, and even have guides of some of our frequently traveled airline cabin products. Here are some of the reviews that we’re most excited about over the next couple of months.

ACT FAST: Scoot’s New Year’s Flash Sale

I came upon some incredibly low fares on Scoot’s website, as part of a New Year’s flash sale, with highly discounted tickets departing from all of their destinations. I don’t think they will last very long, and are likely to sell out soon, so book ASAP if you are interested! Because of various departure/destination and date combinations, feel free to play around on Scoot’s website. They look like GREAT fares!

Thoughts On Visiting Lindau, Germany

Last month I was able to visit three destinations in Germany that I had never visited before. This included the island of Lindau, the major tourist site Berchtesgaden and the huge city of Munich. I enjoyed visiting all three destinations, and published my main trip report detailing the flights I flew and hotels I stayed at to complete this trip, so hopefully you guys find these reviews useful in the future. However, I figured I’d be doing you guys a disservice without actually reporting back on my thoughts regarding the destinations themselves.

I’m in no position to compile a full guide on things you can do when you’re touring these areas, so in no way am I attempting to do so. Instead, I’d just like to share some of the highlights that I had when visiting these destinations.

Lindau, Germany

Originally we were just planning to visit Berchtesgaden and Munich, since these were two places that I’ve heard good things about and was very intrigued in. However, our friends at Bucher Travel Services highly recommended visiting Lindau, so we were happy to add that to our schedule.

YAY: Some Airlines Are No Longer Subjected To The U.S. Electronics Ban

Back in March, the United States introduced a rather asinine electronics ban policy that extended to several airlines. I wrote about it at the time – I am always supportive of safety onboard a flight, but you’d have figured that people intending to harm have found other ways to sneak their devices onboard flights by now.

A while ago the U.S. announced that if airports became compliant with a series of enhanced security measures, large electronic devices would once again be allowed on flights between these airports and the U.S.. I’m happy to say that a few airlines have been compliant with these new safety measures, and on certain airlines, you will once again be able to bring your laptops, iPads and cameras onboard flights.

Where Should I Go in Australia and How Should I Get There?

Our family is currently in the process of planning a trip to Australia in February, so having some free time (finally!) after exams, I decided to have a look at the possible options. There were many options that were compelling to an extent, though everything was rather pricey (which is expected, as it’s June, where everyone’s starting to book their travels “far” in advance). I’m currently stumped at four options, and I’m really starting to wonder which one’s the best.

I’ll run down my list of options, and I’ll see if consulting y’all can give me a better idea of where our family can go over the summer.
