Iceland

What a Crazy Week!

The past week (actually, two weeks) have been super crazy for me as I spent four days in London, two in Edinburgh, and three in Iceland… and I flew with… *gasp* oneworld airlines… and *bigger gasp* easyJet. I had an amazing trip to the UK and Iceland and loved every part of the 10-day journey. Warsaw trip report Will be finished soon, I promise. I just didn’t have time to blog at all during my UK/Iceland trip since we were exploring cities the whole day and got back really late to the hotel and I was exhausted. I promise the report of my weekend trip to Warsaw will be completed soon! Iceland is the world’s most beautiful country OMG I LOVE ICELAND. I never in a … read more

Radisson Blu Centrum Hotel Warsaw

Two Days in Warsaw – Introduction I spent the first night in Warsaw at Hotel Bristol and I very much enjoyed the luxurious stay at the hotel. Prices for Bristol were astronomical for the second night… the first one was ~$115 USD and the second night (Saturday night) was priced at ~$300 USD, which was waaaaay too much to spend on a hotel. I remembered that due to the recent Club Carlson changes, there was a promotion being offered for all VISA Cardholders whereby they would get 30K bonus Club Carlson points after any paid stay worldwide until August. Since hotels in Poland are generally cheap, I decided to book the Radisson Blu Centrum Hotel in Warsaw for the second night for about ~$55… read more

Exploring Warsaw

Two Days in Warsaw – Introduction I spent a day and a half exploring Warsaw. The day I arrived I went into the Old Town and the following day, I went into the centre of Warsaw. Generally speaking, Warsaw itself isn’t the most beautiful city in the world but does have some beautiful places to it – such as the Old Town. Warsaw was destroyed during the war and therefore was rebuilt later on and most of the city still has that ‘communistic’ feel to it.. something that I never felt in other cities in Poland. I enjoyed the Old Town and Royal Castle on the first day and later during the evening, I went on a walk across a bridge which presented me with beautiful views of the … read more

Hello from London!

Hello from London – or otherwise known as my favourite city from now on! Like, OMG, I can’t believe at how magnificent it is and how I never noticed this before. I’m here for the rest of the week just exploring and I’ve already fallen in love with the city, like it is just so captivating. So. Moving. HERE.. SOON! I took my aunt with me to London since she’s never been here before and we both absolutely love the city… and I think I’ve just found my European city which I can move to in the future and call ‘home’. We flew into Heathrow in BA Club Europe using Avios and took an Uber to the hotel… which is awesome and we have a gorgeous … read more

LOT Polish Airlines Economy Class E175 Kraków to Warsaw

Two Days in Warsaw – Introduction LOT Polish Airlines 3920 Kraków (KRK) – Warsaw (WAW) Embraer E175 10 July 2015 Boarding was announced in the Business Lounge and by the time I made it to the gate, it was almost over and I was among the last people to board. There were just a few people for the flight to Warsaw and therefore the E175 wasn’t that full. LOT doesn’t have Business Class on any domestic routes and all flights are Economy-only within Poland, which does make sense considering all flights are under an hour. We were driven to the E175 by bus due to the fact that there are no jetways at the airport. However with the new terminal opening soon, there will be a couple o… read more

Business Lounge (Schengen) Kraków

Two Days in Warsaw – Introduction I arrived at the airport about three hours before the domestic flight – way too early before I actually needed to be there. However since Kraków Airport is a complete mess right now (they are building new terminals), I decided to leave a bit earlier so that I could be prepared for any unexpected issues along the way. Plus since they are building a new terminal, this lounge will most likely be torn down soon and I couldn’t help but spend a few extra hours at my home airport that I love. Kraków airport is so awesome since there are flights to all of the major European cities with traditional airlines and not just low-cost airlines. The airport is g… read more

Hello from Poland!

Hello from Poland! As all of you know, I’m currently in my home country of Poland visiting family and just travelling around Europe for the next two months. I will be in Europe until early September, so around two or so more months. If you didn’t know, I’m originally from Poland and I just study at uni in the U.S. and I return to my home country when I have longer breaks (summer and winter). While I love to stay with my family during the summer, I’m making the best use of my miles and hotel points to also visit some European cities. I love Europe so much because everything is so close and in one or two hours you can be in most places around Europe. I’ve already … read more
