Bishkek Fact & Fiction: What You Should Know About Kyrgyzstan’s Capital

Writing about my experiences in Kyrgyzstan has been an intellectual challenge I’ve enjoyed. It’s a challenge because I had to start with the supposition that 1) most people know nothing about Kyrgyzstan and 2) most people don’t have Kyrgyzstan on their travel to-do lists. I say this not to judge, but because it also describes me perfectly until just a few months ago. Like many other writers, bloggers and photographers, I was approached by USAID to participate in a very unique project. The goal ...

Kyrgyzstan Tourism: What to Know About Traveling to Kyrgyzstan

I understand that Kyrgyzstan may not be on as many people’s travel bucket lists as, let’s say, Paris or Bora Bora. But, believe it or not, the stock of this Central Asia country is rising quickly and thanks to a massive effort to develop the Kyrgyzstan tourism industry, it’s never been easier to explore than it is today. That being said, there may be aspects of traveling to and around Kyrgyzstan that confuse or intimidate the would-be visitor, so today I thought I would try to address some of t...

As it turns out, countries like Kyrgyzstan are quickly making their way onto the travel lists of people from around the world, and with good reason. As I learned on my trip to the country, there is so much to see and do that it would take months to enjoy all of it. I think though that I managed to...

Airline Alliances: Why they Still Matter

Last week, Lucky from OMAAT mentioned how he believed that airline alliances were dying. Although I don’t dispute the fact that they aren’t in the best shape they have been, I still see great value from them. For many consumers, airline alliances provide a very extensive value to each member’s’ mileage currency, allows for seamless connectivity, and makes elite status more valuable. Airline Alliances (airwaysmag.com) Which are the airline alliances? There are three major airline alliances. ...

4 Ways Turkish Airlines Sets Itself Apart

Certain airlines are just better than others. It’s a fact and I can give dozens of examples comparing and contrasting a variety of airline experiences around the world. That means, as a traveler, there are certain airlines I just enjoy flying more than others and now after several flights with them, I can without a doubt say that Turkish Airlines is near the top of that list.

Bringing 19 Guests into a Lounge With One Priority Pass Card

With so many premium credit cards now bundling Priority Pass membership, the number of people with airport lounge access has exploded. Only about 5% of the 1000 or so participating Priority Pass lounges are located in the U.S. but an outsized percentage of members are U.S. based. That's meant crowding in a handful of high demand locations, and even Priority Pass members turned away at peak times from places like the Alaska Airlines Lounge in Seattle and the Turkish Airlines lounge at Dulles.
