Delta Airlines – Best Airplane Meals

 Delta Airlines has the best meals, hands down! Well, of course I might be a little Bias, since I only fly Delta but still – I love airplane food regardless.  Back in December and January, I traveled from Hong Kong to LA, then LA to England, then back home, then finally traveled from LA to Rome then back home. Needless to say, I felt like I spent my whole month traveling and getting sick. Even as a frequent traveler, my immune system always acts up. But I digress. During those traveling periods, the only thing that stopped me from going insane was all the movies I got to watch and all the delicious food I got to eat. Here’s a collection of some of the best airplane food I’ve ever had! Even though first class / business class offers alcoholic drinks, I’m not much of a cocktail girl. So, I always make sure to just get juice, though my sister always get Mimosas! I especially love how there are three courses; the appetizer, the entree, then dessert! The …

Welcome to The Palazzo

 And we’re finally here at Sin City! So, after Sushi we finally headed over to the Palazzo. I’ve never stayed there before, and frankly I didn’t know what to expect. I mean, just the night before we stayed at Buffalo Bill’s which was considered a budget hotel but this hotel was 260+ . But split between 5 people, it wasn’t too bad. We also got a great deal on groupon.com, so make sure you always check groupon before going to vegas!  We quickly parked and I jumped out of the car to go stand in line… which was a great idea because as you can tell … the line was long!   It all paid off though as we entered our “suite”. I was expecting just a simple room with two small beds (I mean, vegas is pricey and this is right on the strip though a bit far). But, I was really surprised and excited! Of course, everyone took out their phones and started snapping photos!    

La Buca di Ripetta Review, Rome

via Ripetta 36, 00139 Rome, Italy After visiting the Borghese gallery, we decided to eat lunch since we woke up early that day to make our appointment. My sister told me she found an amazing restaurant and I still wanted to try a place that had great carbonara because all of the others were not doing it for me! So, once again I blindly listened to her just to be let down, yet again.  I think most restaurants in Rome are pretty hard to find, as there are so many turns and small alleyways. But we found this one without too much trouble. When we got there we were only the only people inside the restaurant! For some people, they would take this as a warning – for us, we didn’t. I mean, after all – it had amazing reviews on Tripadvisor! The place itself is beautiful. I loved the little blue scooter! I think out of all the places we went to, this was the prettiest one. Hey, decor matters okay! The atmosphere was great, …

Sciascia Caffe 1919

Sciascia Caffe 1919 Via Fabio Massimo 80/A, 00192 Rome, Italy What a lovely little coffee shop! This place was a mere 5 minutes away from our hotel (walking distance) and was pretty easy to find. We liked it so much we came here two days in a row. They also have fresh coffee beans for sale, but sadly – we didn’t buy any. When you first enter, you are faced with a little “waiting/lobby area”. You can sip your coffee there while looking at the coffee beans (and people watch) or go inside the other room where you can order and sit down.  Looks delicious right? Well. It was amazingly good! Better than the other places we visited. The place itself is pretty nice, and the staff are all so friendly! Don’t be fooled, the coffee bar area was pretty crowded! Famous actors I don’t know… though the guy in the bottom Right looks familiar.

Gelateria dei Gracchi , Rome

  Gelateria dei Gracchi Via dei Gracchi 272 00192 Rome Italy Prati In Rome, we were only able to eat at three gelato places. Why? Because we found Gelateria dei gracchi! After having it, we were unable to go anywhere else! The prices were pretty much on par with other places and it was about 2.50 Euros for a small. We went here everyday, and due to our horrible sleep schedule we would wake up at 11:30 PM and rush downstairs to grab a cone before they closed. 

Visiting the Pantheon

A look inside the Pantheon… After visiting the Roman Forum, we were able to make a quick trip to the Pantheon. By then, my feet were aching and bruised but my sister promised me that we would eat gelato afterwards and have a great dinner so I stopped pouting. The Pantheon is free and gorgeous, though small. We were in and out in about 15 minutes!

Last day in London!

Morning everyone! It’s 12:27 AM and I slept a good 16 hours today – talk about major jetlag. I decided not to go to Japan because I don’t want to be inside an airplane for another month. Can you believe I’ve been on an airplane for almost 60 hours in a month and a half? Gotta say it… traveling is fun but the best bed to sleep in at night is at home. Anyway, in order to post about Rome I have to finish posting about London so here is everything we did our last day there! You can probably tell this post will be rushed… just a little, because I can’t wait to tell you all the places we went to in Rome!  Natural History Museum Out of all the places… this was my favorite landmark! It was huge and amazing. We saw many students on field trips and I was just terribly jealous, if I went here at a young age I would have been mindblown! It took us about 3 hours or more to …
