When looking for wifi during our travels, Kim and I used to seek out McDonald’s. They were usually a reliable place to go if we wanted to get online. In recent years I’ve found McDonald’s wifi to not be as consistent with many locations not even offering free wifi.
Another place to stop in for free wifi is Starbucks, although I can’t recall ever going there to get online. (I also don’t drink coffee so why would I!)
The BIG Delta news yesterday was that the airline would no longer be displaying award charts for award tickets. (Find out about this news from Delta Points.)
Due to this, when we want to book an award flight, it will be like spinning a slot machine to find out what the flight will price out at. (Couldn’t think of a better comparison!) Maybe some flights will price out at a reasonable amount, while others will be ridiculously high. The only way to find out will be to search on Delta.com according to Delta Points.
I find food to be a big part of travel and tend to write my fair share of food- related posts. While traveling, we’ll just about always pay a visit to local markets and supermarkets to see what interesting and odd products might be found.
While I am a very picky eater, there are times that I will step out of my comfort zone to try local delicacies like cuy (guinea pig), fat-ass ants and mud!
I came across an extremely odd sounding dish available at Starbucks in Singapore that I had to try out. Kim, Lucas and I had a few days in Singapore during our trip to Southeast Asia in the Summer of 2012 so I had to make it a point to try an Ugly Curry Chicken Puff.
A while back I wrote a post about a USA Today article regarding fast foods that you can’t get in the USA. I then created a new thread about this on Milepoint. One of the members commented about Ugly Curry Puffs at Starbucks in Singapore being one of their favorites.
(Thanks to member HaveMilesWillTravel for the tip.)
Since we were heading to Singapore, I made a quick note of this odd sounding dish and decided that I had to find and taste it during my trip!
