Hong Kong Airport

Hong Kong Airport

Not been to Hong Kong before (and this doesn’t count as I’m only transitting). The airport is smaller than I was expecting, and I was hoping to see something of Hong Kong in the distance, but the place seems to be shrouded in smog. A quiet Hong Kong airport. A snack – no idea what […]

Changi Airport Singapore – very early morning

It was odd walking through the terminal at Changi (Singapore) Airport at 4:45 am. The place was deserted. Usually, this airport is packed.

Changi Airport, Singapore

First part of the trip went OK. I managed to get a lift to downtown Singapore from Malaysia with a colleague. Once in Singapore I caught the MRT (underground train) to the airport. Worked great, and proved to be 60 times cheaper than getting a taxi from Malaysia to the airport. One downside of the […]

Skiing 2015 – Austria – where am I going?

Flight in to Innsbruck landed an hour late (flight time is 1 hour 29 mins). We were given a warning on ‘severe turbulence’ for the approach – basically we passed through snow clouds at 5000-10000 feet… we could see the snow flying past the window. On the ground it was raining. I hope it is […]

Skiing 2015 – Austria

By on January 3, 2015 in Austria with 0 Comments

Booked a last minute ski trip to Austria with Crystal Ski. I am not entirely sure where I am going, other than it is Austria, but Lisa at Crystal Ski assured me it was a good resort with an interesting range of runs, and that it has received significant snow in the last week. (Personally, […]

Zurich Airport and their Wifi

By on March 8, 2014 in Switzerland with 0 Comments

Zurich airport is a nice modern airport with some good shops after security, but their WiFi policy is terrible. You get a free 60 minutes when you arrive, and then you have to pay (1 hour CHF 6.90, 4 hours CHF 9.90). They have the system so locked down that Starbucks is not allowed to […]

Zurich airport – Wifi and the Observation Deck

Wifi at Zurich airport is the usual story, one hour for free and then an extortionate price for anymore. Got quite excited about an observation deck as I thought I could spend some time watching planes. However the ‘open’ free bit doesn’t have any views… And if you want to get a good view you […]

Queenstown Airport, New Zealand

Well, back to Queenstown Airport as this was the end of my ski trip to the South Island of New Zealand, time to head north. Next stop will be Christchurch (to catch up with an old friend), which means a flight from Queenstown to Christchurch. Queenstown Airport is very small – one terminal building and […]

Auckland Airport, New Zealand

By on September 13, 2007 in New Zealand

Flight from Wellington to Auckland was OK.  At Auckland Airport there was a 10-minute walk to get from the domestic terminal to international. The security staff at Auckland Airport said there was food available for purchase after security (well, there was if you count Burger King), some nibbles at an espresso bar, or sandwiches at the […]
