Our first long haul trip is coming up fast!  Reviewing the stats:

We’ll traverse through 8 airports
Chicago’s O’Hare ORD
Tokyo’s Narita NRT
Bangkok’s BKK
Bangkok’s DMK
Chiang Mai’s CNX
Krabi’s KBV
Siem Reap’s REP
Hong Kong’s HKG

I’m looking forward to checking out some of the airport lounges.


We will get to fly all classes: first, business and economy on 4 different airlines
Japan Airlines 1st class and business class
Air Asia economy
Dragonair premium economy
Cathay Pacific business class

And we get to experience 4 different aircraft
JAL Boeing 777-300ER
JAL 787-8 Dreamliner
Air Asia Airbus 320
Dragonair Boeing 777-300ER
Cathay Pacific Airbus A320/100-200

I wish we had a 747 in there, but I am excited to check out the dreamliner and the first class and business class seats as well.

We will also have 3 ferry rides shuttling us from Krabi to Koh Lanta to Phi Phi Island and then back to Krabi.

Our themes for this trip are cities, temples and beaches.  Along our journey we will take a cooking class, spend a day with elephants, take scuba diving classes, visit amazing temples,  huge modern cities, and stroll through the 900 year old complex of Angkor Wat.  And of course we will eat lots of delicious new foods!  Photos to come!
