Leaving on a Jet Plane

21 07 2017

Another trip earlier today out of Narita.  Am now in Shanghai, China, attending a festival on business.

Our ride to the hotel.

Checked in.

Beautiful view!





Breakfasting in El Segundo and Onward to San Francisco

14 07 2017

It was great that during my recent business trip to the US, the day I was travelling from Los Angeles to San Francisco fell on a Sunday which allowed me to get together with a couple of high school friends living in the LA area to get some brunch together.  One of them even lives near LAX and her choice of venue in downtown El Segundo was perfect for me.

I was driven to LAX by one of my friends.  Took a Delta flight to SFO.

Arriving in San Francisco, taking the airtrain.

BART!





Leaving on a Jet Plane and Arriving and Lunching in Los Angeles

30 06 2017

So I took off on another trip on Thursday, June 29 but before doing so, stopped by a local voting post to cast an absentee ballot for the upcoming election for the Tokyo Metropolitan Assembly.

This trip is an unusual one for me in that I am with a group of people including colleagues and people from other companies to go to a convention being held in LA this weekend.

Zipped to LA.  Our plane landed much earlier than scheduled and had to keep taxiing round and round the same route more than three times until our gate was ready.

Finally in and out of the terminal at LAX.

Our rooms were not ready so off to the Grand Central Market behind our hotel for some lunch.

Ordering lunch

Took a table near this nice bar (but didn’t buy from it) and waited for our lunch with a nice cup of cold craft beer.

Lunch is served.  Had a really good lamb burger.

Walk back to the hotel.

Checked in.

My view.





Random Malta

It’s a wrap for my recent trip to the Republic of Malta with very random photos of little things I saw and did.

Going away on business this morning.

Off to Marseille, France for the weekend.





A Walk Around the B&B and Onward to Malta from Rome FCO

1 05 2017

The morning after I arrived in Italy turned out to be beautiful.

View from the balcony of my B&B near Rome FCO.

And out for a walk.  The hotel exterior and its premises.

Stepping outside.

And back in the hotel, checked out, and waiting for my ride to the airport.

And zipped to the airport.

Goodbye Italy and off to the Republic of Malta!

 





Arriving in Rome FCO and Enjoying a Big Italian Dinner

30 04 2017

After a 12-hour flight from Seoul ICN, arrived in Rome FCO last night, was picked up at the airport, taken to my B&B near the airport, where I immediately had a big Italian dinner.  The popular restaurant attached to the B&B was packed with locals, mostly big family groups, its being a Saturday night before a long weekend.

My starter

Piazza Margherita as my main.

This girl kept chasing the house(?) dog.

Interestingly enough, the very nice B&B does not serve breakfast and the option is the above breakfast basket for 3 Euros!
