    “That extra round is free of charge”

    LH2075 from HAM to MUC This seems to be the motto of my attempt to fly to Tokyo… Today is already the second time for me trying to do just that, and now right before touching down in Munich, strong winds hit the airplane from the side, making it unstable to land. So the captain…

    Let’s take a boat to Tonlé Sap and visit the Floating Village in Cambodia
