United Lounges: Boston and Newark

Probably not that interesting if you’re not into airport lounges. But to me these are great places to escape the ‘hustle and bustle’ of airports – and if I’m lucky they have a shower too (United’s Boston lounge doesn’t, one of their 2 Newark lounges does). Wi-Fi is expected for free and I’ve never paid yet in a … Continue reading

Troika Russian Restaurant in Seoul

Although I enjoyed the company of good friends this story didn’t start well as it was situated in Itaewon; Seoul’s ex-pat area. I admit I’m a cultural snob – when I come to Seoul I want to see Korea. Arriving at the Troika Russian restaurant, Russian text book in my rucksack, I completely confused the … Continue reading
