pjjisctdtensc4d
but i should have based on past interactions since you don't seem to do well with that.
jvudypxgqcjh4d
happy to skip NYC! I only chose it for the cheap flights. I can see a $352 flight from Madrid to Cancun, then Cancun to Mexico City for $41
umlzzilsqrpu4d
it's a lot cheaper to go Barcelona => NYC => Mexico city (128 + 120)
szrwteovoewmz4d
any flight savings will be eaten by actually doing more than connecting through NYC. if you leave the airport basically at all, there goes any savings.
jwjbczdudcqyd4d
you're really looking at what, $150 ish in difference. you'll spend that in a single night in NYC.
xgzzqiqrupjz4d
haha yes I was just thinking that
sfuzyqoo4d
I think I'll exit this convo now...
kvmpjlqjhlie4d
have you been to Seville? it looks like it has a slightly rating on NomadList
eewrnhsohvzoo4d
it's amazing. my favorite city in southern spain.
tvnveimykyya4d
nice, thanks!
zjgwpoqscwryv4d
if you go i'll give you some recs, just let me know.
ldqvxtszqlhi4d
thanks! I will let you know!
dyddhtdklwss4d
I think I will skip the skiing:

โ€ข Kuala Lumpur to London ($365)
โ€ข London to Seville ($31)
โ€ข Seville to Madrid ($20)
โ€ข Madrid to Cancun ($352)
โ€ข Cancun to Mexico City ($34)
โ€ข Mexico City to Miami ($116)
โ€ข Miami to London ($134)
โ€ข London to Kuala Lumpur ($400)
muqzrwrgoezm4d
but this is still a lot of flights
hwvmcrnxmxlj4d
any idea how I might be able to cut out some of these?
iyubbsbufdqb4d
I guess I'm always going to need 2 stops between Mexico City and Kuala Lumpur. Google is suggesting Mexico City => Dallas/Fort Worth => Hong Kong => Kuala Lumpur, but I don't like that that 17 hour flight to Hong Kong
frvmdnme4d
veppznahhajvx what if it was a a380 or 747, multi deck with a bar
vibejut4d
vhufdqlsmneji might also check via Vancouver. Then check local airlines that do vacations to Mexico.
ffqtnyz4d
Sunwing E.g.
ydhvmdn4d
Or air Canada rouge if are ok with cattle ๐Ÿ„ experience
gugezbl4d
Sunwing is pretty crap too
lsgovqy4d
Its trashy
lknqbjv4d
But on the positive side you probably could ski in whistler
lawumgh4d
And check the city theyโ€™d dubbed one of the most livable in the world.
pfyfgwxbqja4d
Having just done two 10+ hour flights (plus two 2 hr flights), the thought of a 17 hour flight gives me hives
scvnyvkuzihtt4d
longest continuous flight i've done is 12 hours. i have 0 interest in doing longer. i'm too old for that shit and it takes too long to recover.
wcvjwcmvypkh4d
is it worth taking the train from Seville to Madrid? It seems like it might actually be around the same time as a flight (2h30m vs 1h30m), if you count checking in, waiting for boarding, etc. Plus I can get to the airport in Madrid exactly when I want to. And would be nice to see more of the country ()
jvavpsqpvxcyi4d
train is more comfortable than a flight will be. and the country will be lovely.
lvzvdepwcenzi4d
if you're in seville for a bit, try to do a day trip to ronda. it's beautiful.
petcragdisklg4d
required snacks for training in spain split of wine, some ham, some cheese, some olives, some dark chocolate. ๐Ÿ™‚
psynrkmlzpfg4d
thanks, that does sound very good!
uqgpgdqzndsnxbho4d
Damn, now I want to go to Spain. ๐Ÿ˜…
wppiupoufnyvgpg4d
for a booking that complicated is probably worth it to get flystein.com|flystein.com to double check
gxtxojtaiauvb4d
i miss spain. march baby!
mlijtzhutme4d
Usually in Europe if the train is 6 hours or under I would rather take the train
dzgoupuunwv4d
If you include the time to get to the airport, deal with airport security, etc, it comes to about the same amount of time
numzpoeewze4d
Because train stations are generally a lot more central than airports
lcoffwfkh4d
wfizyhvwchovw Yeah that quick train from Seville to Madrid is fine, and probably better option than flight (which including all the security and stuff will take probably longer)
itdphbdgsolc4d
thanks for the tip! I haven't used them before, and it sounds really good! I think they can also help me figure out how to use some credit card miles
xisbbfehskpxx3d
I think I would enjoy this Uber
nieuaqycfe2d
100% train over flying
gmjjrtczf2d
Train travel is so nice when the math works out
pubcqvpva2d
Train duration + 3 hours is my limit to not fly
cjvrrkmaf2d
A lot of stuff in Europe I prefer to train
biogbrycx2d
Although Eurostar is such a pain to get down to the south of France vs just flying
bspkfsdvjdyw2d
wow this trip is so hard to plan. I have to go to the other side of the world, and want to visit a lot of different places, but not too many
etziumlmxhpgg2d
Don't plan it
qxbyfodyvgrvm2d
Just go
cxdogjtbl2d
Be an adult and plan it so you donโ€™t get stuck in Tangier with just a inflatable flamingo and a pair of swim shorts
iba2d
Agreed. Just book the flight and everything else can get sorted when youโ€™re there
qqeropxeh2d
Absolutely. Sounds like he wants a bunch of flights connected into a routing tho
vimtwzedivcig2d
Planning doesn't work for me, my life just goes smoothly all the time and I do not understand how
dmejnooni2d
Low expectations?
ouequzgaymsmq2d
Nah, undeserved luck
vznoujcjb2d
Well, good for you
rfhnsljtl2d
In that case
dsiwcwsxi2d
Want to come to bray with me ?
cqfvfpqfs2d
Iโ€™ve been wanting to get back to the fat duck
tvcefojtk2d
And my usual in (front of house manager) has moved on
zqdqcgesl2d
We could try for a no-reso walk in
enevnhlxszpszmoe2d
I just embrace the chaos. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ
zerfkafsa2d
Iโ€™ll pay!
xscfzppxxsucl2d
i plan minimally. i've found over the years that the more i plan in advance the more those plans change.
grhhhmw2d
tarkwowtcrixxv I have the same problem, Iโ€™m learning to catch myself before making commitments too far in advance (with myself and others) ๐Ÿ˜…
tcolhzhcika2d
I canโ€™t not plan ahead because everywhere I go tends to be high season so if I donโ€™t have my housing sorted then Iโ€™m hosed
mjuzqldxflulj2d
yeah. it's definitely more difficult if you need something very specific. you have to have the ability and willingness to be flexible. and sometimes not planning ahead bites you in the ass. like the time barcelona was basically fucking sold out and even hostel rooms were going for like $250 a night for an 8 bed dorm.
hkhiogiovtyjm2d
I don't mind when that happens, keeps it interesting
qsoqwmwfupsiu2d
well i'm a cheapass so paying a couple hundred bucks for a few hours sleep annoys me. ๐Ÿ™‚ but it was my fault so...
pgdiodeloeczt2d
Used to annoy me more, before I figured out how useless I am at working with poor sleep
hxeajrmzi2d
was that during the Barcelona Mobile World Congress maybe? I have heard before that this event basically fills up any available bed in Barcelona
oyrlvwmtpqdui2d
Seems like a bargain almost when you look at the big pic
ikifszyydrumf2d
Still annoying but yeah
gvkjmfhsuagia2d
I don't spend a lot of time in pricey hotel countries
unkyyycpghzuh2d
i have no idea. i was there for a concert. and i looked to book a hotel a couple days ahead, which is usually fine for barcelona, and it was insanity. luckily i just needed to be there one night.
drziixqdkf2d
I had the same problem booking for Milan while they had the Fiera del Mobile (an event about design and furnitures), I had to drive 2 hours to get a โ€œcheaperโ€ 60โ‚ฌ room
wrhutzjna2d
glad it all worked out in the end but yes, $250 for an 8 dorm room bed is out of the question. In such a situation Iโ€™d rather pay $300 and have privacy ๐Ÿ˜†
igepzjrvspoda2d
yeah, i paid a couple hundred for a hotel room a 20 minute walk from the concert venue. no way was i paying that much for a DORM.
iumryyfkwqgxb2d
but i was seriously contemplating just going to the train station after the concert and catching a night train. but then i would have had to figure out my luggage stuff since baggage check at the terminal isn't 24/7
xuomxzyuozhos2d
and i think they'd have frowned upon me bringing my big bag to the arena. lol
gcblycxcf2d
yeah, I left my luggage once at a Bar because I ended up stranded in Southern Tenerife (bc flight was late) with no bus to the north and Taxis were like โ‚ฌ100. So I tried to get a cheap hotel room but without success (hotels donโ€™t do late night walk-inโ€™s it seems). Ended up taking the taxi north in the end and paid the โ‚ฌ100 ๐Ÿ™
fzazkgcdlgwbx2d
the joys of travel. it's all super glamorous all the time!
qbebjnkko2d
I still 1000% prefer my slowmad lifestyle over any โ€œcommute not optionalโ€ job (unless Google were to pay me 400k+ to work for them, which is not going to happen anytime soon, hahaha)
lhkfvqcuhgeva2d
oh yeah. there's no comparison.
hblxqupicbcir2d
i just laugh because if you look at all the IG nomads you'd never know everything wasn't rainbows flying out our asses all day.
ehthausnc2d
or all of us working at the beach, sunglasses onโ€ฆ pfffโ€ฆ people posting such pictures on instagram should be kicked in their behindโ€ฆ anyone who ever tried working at or on a bach knows how shitty it is (sand everywhere, bad/no WIFI, too much light etc)โ€ฆ
ryeqycukxrohv2d
anyone who is serious about their job wouldn't take their main piece of money earning equipment (which is a pain in the ass to fix/replace on the road) to a beach in the first place. sand. gets. in. every. thing.
cfwvmcnji2d
it does, sometimes Iโ€™ll have some sand come out in the shower 3 days after I was on the beach lastโ€ฆ I donโ€™t even want to know where it hid ๐Ÿ˜
nxofukosjifgj2d
lol
qiopvqepmcvta2d
๐Ÿ™ˆ
ayltmzifuv2d
In peopleโ€™s experience here, does Aeromexico usually weigh carry-ons? I do carry-on only, and both bags total ~22kg which is more than double the stated 10kg limit on the site. Iโ€™ve been on other airlines with a posted limit, but in reality they didnโ€™t care. Though Iโ€™ve read really mixed reports about that with Aeromexico. Theyโ€™re the only ones with a non-stop from Seattle, so Iโ€™m hoping they donโ€™t. If not, then Delta with a layover it is.
zllwpszeqlljjq2d
With Aeromexico Iโ€™ve never had the issue, but generally Iโ€™m more worried theyโ€™ll weigh my carry-on if I can only check in at the desk. There they might look at your bag slyly and ask to put it on the belt to check if itโ€™s under 10, and if not they make you check it.

So if you can check in online youโ€™re often good, they wonโ€™t go through the hassle of weighing it when youโ€™re boarding (I think, on total circumstantial evidence)
ooqjhxvecartc2d
in my experience, they're less likely to weigh a backpack. probably thinking that if you've got it on your back it's probably not too heavy. ๐Ÿ™‚
fjqohffzez2d
Iโ€™m probably at the limit of whatโ€™s considered a reasonable carry-on with my 55L backpack + regular backpack ๐Ÿ˜… Only time Iโ€™ve been hassled was a Condor flight from Germany to Seattle, but I managed to talk my way past that. I just get nervous when they explicitly post up a low limit like that.
qcguynmqffldtnll2d
I know i'm more productive with proper sleep but I still have that stupid American must-get-this-done-at-any-cost-now work mentality
rdsdagjrtqapyufc2d
though i've improved massively in that regard in the last couple of years

Did anyone notice that itโ€™s possible to chat with people on the plane (same flight) trough airasia mobile app.

interesting. i already use mobile passport when i can as it's a huge time saver. this could come in handy while traveling though.
