How The Other Half Travel

By the other half, we mean the richy rich. We all end up in the same destination, but the types of holidays we have are completely different. When you think about how the other half holiday, you might imagine a butler waiting on them hand and foot, a car to take them wherever they want, and the most luxurious hotel room. Well, you’re not really far off. But whilst we assume we can’t achieve a holiday like this, it’s time to think about whether you actually might be able to. How the other half travel is slightly more expensive, but if you save like you usually would do for a holiday, with just a little bit of extra effort, you could easily afford that lavish holiday, and have a taste of how the other half travel. Here’s a little bit of information to show you how a holiday for the other half goes down.


Travelling In Style

Travelling in style is something they really do know how to do best. Forget going economy on a Ryanair flight, they really do splash the cash and go all out. But when you’re going on a longhaul flight, you do want to be in the most comfort that you can possibly be in. So, always check out what the first class situation is like, or at least what the business class is like. It will be expensive, there’s no denying that. But the price you pay for the comfort and treatment of first class is going to be more than worth it. Think seats that lie down to go into a comfy bed, free drinks all throughout the flight, as much food as you want… the list could go on. A lot of them even chose to hire private jets. Now, whether this is out of your price range or not, it’s a cool thing to consider. You can learn more about where you might be able to take a private jet to, you’d be surprised at the number of airports that accept them! You’ll also want to take a look at the prices too. If you were to do that, it really would have to be a once in a lifetime thing, but you would definitely be travelling in style if you opted for that. If not, then first class or business class should do the trick.

Luxurious Locations

This really is something that the other half know how to do best. The amount of locations that they end up in around the world is just incredible. Let’s start with possibly one of the most amazing, and definitely the most dreamy. You’ve got Bora Bora for one. It’s a statement of luxury, and one that only a select few people get to go to. You know the pictures with the huts sitting above the most crystal blue waters, with a bathroom looking out over the sea, and a bed so big you could fit a whole family in? Well, there are some people who actually get to experience that. A holiday to Bora Bora is perhaps one of the most expensive. A minimum spend of around £3000 per person is needed for just a week, and that will be for a very basic package. If you wanted to go all out, you would need around double that… per person. So now you see why it’s a holiday pretty much only suited for the rich and for the lucky.

Luxurious Treatment

The other half wouldn’t settle for anything less. The places that they chose to go will all have 5* treatment available, and that’s what they’ll want. Out of the three, this is definitely something you’re going to be able to to afford. Simple holidays in a 5* hotel will give you the best treatment in the world, and will offer some of the most amazing facilities as well. All you have to be sure of is that you’re willing to spend a couple of hundred extra to get this type of treatment. You can expect free messages whenever you want, breakfast in bed, a fresh room every day, and drinks being brought to you whilst you’re lounging around the pool. A package holiday with a 5* hotel really won’t be that expensive. Just make sure you’re shopping around to get the best deal, and always go all inclusive if you want a little taste of luxury… and to save a little money!

So, now you see how the other half travel, and how it might not be that hard for you to do the same!

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond
