Miracle First Class Lounge – Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport

I’m back doing my favourite thing at an airport – other than plane spotting of course – I’m in an airport lounge. I’m not flying First Class – sigh –  so I’ve payed my way into the Miracle First Class Lounge. Nothing dodgy and no money changed hands under the table. It’s all legit, you…

Salon iCare Airport Lounge – Charles De Gaulle Airport, Paris

  For someone that adores travel and loves flying, I’ve started to dislike airports, obviously not the plane spotting part, and I respect the security aspect but its the crowds, the kids, the people who suddenly have this dumbness about them, mostly though, it’s the inflated prices for food and drink.

Finnair Lounge – Helsinki Vantaa Airport

It’s been a wonderful flight from Singapore on Finnair’s Airbus a350 and now I have a 5 hour stopover at Helsinki’s Vantaa Airport. Hmmm, what shall I do with my time? The lounge of course! Want More FreakyFlier delivered to your inbox? Sign up at the bottom of the page! Check out my other Lounge…

Singapore: 24 hours with a budget of AU$200.

I was stopping in Singapore for just over 24 hours and my budget was AU$200. Thats two hundred dollars – for everything – transport, accommodation, food, drinks and sightseeing. I knew it wasn’t going to be flashy, but I wasn’t about to be trudging around in the tropical heat, living off pot noodles and drinking tap water….

QANTAS Sydney International Business Lounge.

“Champagne, Champagne for everyone!” – Matt Lucas character of Bubbles – Little Britain. When you’re about to leave on an overseas trip, what a better place to start than in an Airport Lounge and if its morning, why not partake in a Champagne Breakfast! Ok, it’s not champagne on the menu here at the QANTAS International…

Happy New Year 2017 – Where are you travelling to?

2016 was a good year but I didn’t get to travel as much as I would have liked. Buenos Aires and Montevideo were great, as was a brief trip to Melbourne. I have, however already booked my big trip for 2017. One way ticket around the world! First stop, Singapore, then Penang, Phuket, Chiang Mai…

Qantas First Lounge, Auckland

“No, this way!” Bert said as I bounded into the Qantas Business Class Lounge. He was pointing to the ‘By Invitation’ door. On our recent trip to New Zealand, I flew Emirates Business Class on a Qantas flight number between Auckland and Sydney. I was travelling with my friend Bert, myself in Business Class and Bert…

Emirates Lounge, Auckland, New Zealand

“Excuse me, Is this the way to the Emirates Lounge?” I asked asked an elderly lady coming down the escalator. “Oh, I don’t know I’m from Canada!” she replied. When my friend Bert and I reached the top of the escalator, we found not only the Emirates Lounge but the Qantas Business and First Class lounge. I dont…

The QantasClub, Wellington International Airport.

  I like to think I am quite civilised. While most people hate hanging around airports and there are some who like to get there early for the shopping, I get to airports early to make sure I have checked in on time and can clear immigration and customs without any stress or rushing – OK,…
