If you’ve found your cheap flight using Google’s Matrix ITA search, chances are you will not be able to find and book your itinerary easily on any common OTA (online travel agency) such as kayak. It’s even trickier when the itinerary is more complex, for example if you plan an open jaw trip departing from another city that you’ve first arrived to. However there’s a search engine that lets you find your itinerary no matter how complicated it actually is.
Initially, this was supposed to be a rant about why I hate Slovakia and why it’s perfectly fine for anyone to hate on the country he/she was born. But instead of being too negative I’d rather come up with some points about what I love about Taiwan and why I’m moving there pretty soon.
It might sound stupid to start every article about my Korean trip with a hangover moaning, but this time I really had no idea how I ended up home and why there was a food waiting for me at the table. God knows whether I’ve invited someone over or I just bought it at night on the way home from the gogo bar. After all it didn’t really matter, at least I didn’t have to go eating that pork broth without pork from yesterday.
If you ever travel to 제주도 (Jeju island), no matter how boring your friends say 우도 (Udo) is, you shouldn’t listen to them and make a nice one day trip to prove them wrong. It’s a small “cow” shaped island east of Jeju with population somewhere around 2 000 people. The only way to get there is by using ferry, but firstly you need to get to 선산항 (Seongsan port) which might be little tricky.
It all started with an announcement that Blink 182 would play a show in Prague. I never easily get out to buy anything (even food), but 30 minutes after the news I had my shiny new ticket in my hands. Then another announcement was made shortly after, this time by a low-cost airline Wizz Air. They were celebrating 10 years anniversary and offered this special ticket giveaway where you get every second seat for free. Sounded like a great plan to me - I was gonna be in Prague anyway so why not to fly further across Europe. I contacted my friend O, she agreed and couple of hours later we had our itinerary ready and booked.
Even though flight prices are one of the very few things that are not affected by an inflation, it can sometimes get really expensive to just randomly book a first ticket found through your favorite OTA (online travel agency) such as orbitz, expedia and many others. If you’re the type of traveler that would spend money on hotels, fancy food, alcohol or anything else rather than a flight ticket, you should do some homework instead.
Have you ever wondered how come there are people that can afford things like constant traveling, the luxury of not having a boss or simply having more money than their 9 to 5 job is able to provide them with? The secret behind it is called a “passive income”. Most of the time it requires you to invest lot of money and time to learn new things - be it a MLM (multi level marketing) or forex trading. These tools can earn you decent income once you are all settled and now how it works. But I’ve found something less risky and less time consuming that makes a profit of over 50% per year of your initial investment. It’s called Bitfinex.
Next morning was much better than the previous one, because I managed to get up at noon and knew exactly what I wanted to see. There was only one issue at the time, “what the heck am I going to eat for lunch?”. I wasn’t quite sure about going back to 미미네 after I made a total fool out of myself, so I’ve found a Japanese ramen restaurant called 멘야 산다이메 (Menya Sandaime) on foursquare. The place wasn’t too far from my apartment and from what foursquare told me, they were supposed to have a non-meat ramen as well. Wrong again…
