Ever since getting my Private Pilot’s License I’ve flown plenty of cross-country navigation trips. I’ve flown around New South Wales a fair amount, and more recently around country Victoria too, discovering new airfields and meeting new people along the way. But apart from one trip a few years ago when I flew from Sydney to […]
The Qantas Lounge in Hong Kong Airport Terminal 1 came joint second in The Design Air’s Top 10 Airport Lounges of 2015, and it’s easy to see why.

A snap of the inflight meal given to me on a Cityflyer flight from YSCB to YSSY. A Carmen's snack-fest, with roasted chic peas, muesli slice and pretzels.
