A visit to Komatsu (the city), Japan

A visit to Komatsu (the city), Japan

So since I have a decent amount of free time on weekends, and a huge stash of Avios points – and it costs only 4,500 points each way (and $3 of taxes), I decided to explore Japan. Today, I’m going to to Komatsu – the only thing the city is really known for is the eponymous construction company. In light whereof, there’s apparently the world’s largest dump truck parked near the main station, as well as a fairly impressive car museum. So here we go. 

A few days in Koh Samui

A few days in Koh Samui

So as I wrote earlier, the ultimate destination for this trip was Koh Samui. Having only been to Bangkok, I wasn't sure what to expect – on the one hand, it's a tropical paradise destination, and on the other, the beaches around Koh Samui didn't strike me as being particularly amazing as far as swimming goes. I am not one to ever miss a mistake fare opportunity, though, and between the Bangkok ticket being incorrectly priced at Hong Kong prices and the villa being given to me for free, I wasn't about to complain!
