#2233 – La Fête des Lumières

ENGLISH I went to Lyon for a weekend trip in early December for the annual Fête des Lumières, or the Festival of Light, following Aggy‘s recommendation 😀 . As I arrived in Lyon only on Saturday afternoon and I left quite early on Sunday, I dedicated my entire time there for the festival. As I have been…

#2232 – Sir Andy Murray

ENGLISH Last week during a pre-tournament conference of the 2019 Australian Open, Andy Murray announced that this tournament would possibly his last ever; or even if it wouldn’t be, he wouldn’t play beyond Wimbledon this year. And as you know, Andy Murray is my favorite tennis player in the ATP. So understandably this announcement made…

#2231 – Yeay, A Weekend!

ENGLISH Mid this week, I was back from my 2018 year end trip to the United States. So obviously I am glad that just not long after that, we are now in a weekend! Haha 😆 . Obviously I am (still) jetlagged from this trip, due to the six hours difference between Miami/New York and Amsterdam…

#2230 – Back in Europe!

ENGLISH This Wednesday afternoon, my KLM flight KL1234 landed at Schiphol Airport, marking the end of my 2018 Year End Trip to Florida (Miami), Texas (Austin), and New York (New York)!

#2228 – Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

ENGLISH For a while I wasn’t sure whether I would like to give Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (DS9), another spin-off of the ever popular Star Trek series, a try; as there were seven seasons  (so it was a lot of episodes) and none of it was “remastered”, haha. But after finishing Star Trek: The…

#2227 – More Stories From Last Week

ENGLISH I just realized (by the time I wrote this post, of course, lol 😆 ) that last week‘s Monday was, what I would call, a “super bridging” day. This was because the preceeding Saturday and Sunday were, obviously, a weekend; and the following Tuesday and Wednesday were public holidays! Lol 😆 . I went…

#2226 – 2018 In The Air

ENGLISH Just like in 2015, 2016, and in 2017, I am going to recap my flying activities in 2018 😛 . In terms of the total number of flights, I actually flew less than I did last year, at “only” 65 flights, haha 🙈. Though distance-wise, I actually travelled further at 50,789 miles (81,737 km). And…
