Flight Review: El Al Business Class (787-9) From New York to Tel Aviv

I have long been fascinated by El Al. Since they became a Qantas codeshare partner in 2017, I have wanted to experience the Israeli national airline. Long had I heard that El Al’s long-haul staples – the trusty Boeing 777-200ER – were not as fresh and comfortable as rivals flying on similar routes. But when El Al took delivery of their first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner in 2017, I was set determined to experience their long-haul product. It only took me two-years! (NB: This photo taken of similar p...

Week 14: Relaxing at Stunning Lake Mead, Nevada

This week was all about taking it slow and enjoying the stunning lakeside views and desert landscape from our campsite.

Welcome to the Land of Lawlessness – Tombstone Arizona

Welcome to Tombstone Arizona, the Land of Lawlessness. A place where drinking shots at the saloon bar, followed by trips to the service room to the ladies in waiting, and a gun fight or two is a common daily occurrence. Apart from the prostitution thing, is it strange that the thought of it makes you feel a little giddy? It’s not the debauchery and shoot outs that entice me, but the fact that control by outside forces is not in your face. I think all of us are a little enticed by that freedom. ...

Once again on our morning of departure from LA we did a quick about face and change of plans. We wanted to go to Death Valley, but after a few phone calls to reserve an RV campsite we realized it was not the best decision. Everything was booked out as it’s peak season now. Death Valley is not an ideal summer destination. We also learned there are a few road closures thanks to weather destruction. So there is a fair bit of work going on AND gold mining, which meant the chances of us getting accom...
