Lover of Travel and Aviation? 20% Off Gear at 08 Left

Lover of Travel and Aviation? 20% Off Gear at 08 Left

As a fan of all things travel and aviation, I am surprised that I hadn’t heard of 08 Left until the end of last year. I cam to discover their site after a good friend and fellow #AvGeek bought me one of their awesome canvas prints. After my first look at their website, I couldn’t decide what to buy first! 08 Left is an #AvGeek shop with aviation and travel-oriented artwork, apparel, household items and accessories. They even have a…

Lounge Review: British Airways Galleries Lounge at LHR | Terminal 5 North

Lounge Review: British Airways Galleries Lounge at LHR | Terminal 5 North

    After a nice Business Class flight from Dallas to London, I faced a somewhat lengthy connection at LHR. American Airlines serves Terminal 3 at LHR and since I was connecting onto British Airways at Terminal 5, that meant a lovely bus transfer for me. Fortunately, time was of no shortage.

It’s complete eye candy for…

Hotel Review: Dorsett Mongkok | Hong Kong

Hotel Review: Dorsett Mongkok | Hong Kong

TripAdvisor is my gold standard for hotel reviews and I use it heavily when selecting hotels. It rarely lets me down but unfortunately, this was one of those occasions. I’m still scratching my head on how the Dorsett Mongkok won a Traveler’s Choice award! We arrived in Hong Kong in the late evening, checking into the Dorsett Mongkok around 9:30 PM. The location was claimed to be incredibly convenient to the Olympic MTR station which I must disagree with. The…

New & Refreshed: Benjamin J Travel

New & Refreshed: Benjamin J Travel

After roughly 2 years at Avion Addiction, I’m thrilled to announce my new and refreshed site, BenjaminJTravel.com. While not much will change from Avion Addiction, I wanted to make Benjamin J Travel more personal, vibrant, and interactive. I like to travel comfortably: often and on a budget. Ever since I was a little boy, I’ve been incredibly fascinated with travel. I’d memorize timetables and beg my mother to take me to LAX to watch the planes take off. I’d bother the local travel…
