Flying Suite

Fly, SKY, Travel

There is nothing so thrilling as boarding an aeroplane to journey to an exciting new holiday destination. Until, that is, you remember the flight is at least twelve hours long. As comfortable as business and first class seats are, nothing can compare to the splendour of sleeping in a hotel suite on plush pillows, wrapped in high-thread sheets. That begs the question, can you have your cake and eat it too? Well, Emirates, Singapore Airlines and Etihad seem to think so with their ultra luxe airline suites.

Space Ballooning

BALLOON, Inspiration, Lifestyle, Space, Travel

Space has been an alluring mystery for hundreds of years. People love to speculate about what it’s like up there, whether there other life forms and question the authenticity of Armstrong’s moon landing. Imagine for a moment, seeing the world from space, not through footage or photographs, but first hand. Virgin Galactic has been working toward commercial flights for almost a decade. Although there have been several delays over the years, Virgin Galactic is hoping to launch later this year, 2018 . The question is: what are you supposed to do while you wait for your space flight to finally take off? The answer to that question really couldn’t be any better: a near-space balloon flight.
