Flyertalk Trip Reports

With more of a focus on airline lounges, service and products in the air, and hotels.

Here is a table of contents for trip reports that I have posted on Flyertalk, a website for frequent fliers. There are items I wrote for the Trip Reports forum, where fellow frequent fliers write about their trips. The trip reports focus more on the service and product of the airlines and hotels during my trips. There are often corresponding entries on the Gregwtravels blog for each of these, which focus much more on the destination and the experiences I had while there.

Trans-Mongolian train trip report - a two week trip from Paris, France to Hong Kong via rail, most of the way covered on the trans-Siberian and trans-Mongolian railways.

New Romantic Adventures in Belize - Belize and learning to take things easy.

London to Toronto via Frankfurt in business class - I talked about this being my last time to use points to travel via business class, but I did get one more grand flight in after that, with a flight to Singapore in First Class on Thai airlines. I never wrote about that, not sure why I didn't... Anyway, read this about business class across the Atlantic.

Travelling from London to Texas to see the US Grand Prix - I am a big F1 fan, and thanks to the generosity of a friend, this was done to the extreme, with private club seats and helicopters to the track each day.
