Oh my gosh is it Xmas already??? Time really flew by these last couple of weeks. I had to really put my head down at work and get everything sorted because I would be in Taiwan for almost 3 weeks!
Of course, you guys can count on having tons of Taiwan video adventures coming your way! I'm actually in Taipei right now! I landed 3 hours ago. I have just finished unpacking my stuff and I am settling into my childhood bedroom.
I used Delta to fly back and it was my first time with them! Usually I flew EVA, China Airlines, or Cathay. My flight was from JFK to Tokyo and then I had a connecting flight to Taipei. I decided to give myself a Xmas Bonus and paid for a 1x day Sky Club pass. It gave me access to the Delta lounge for 24 hours. Considering that I had a layover in Toyko (Narita Airport), that meant I could use the Delta Sky Club there as well!

Not gonna lie, it was my first time at one of these lounges ever! Considering how far I travel, I've never accrued enough miles in a year to become one of those fancy schmancy members so this was truly a new experience for me.
|These seats were really cool except not enough table room for my laptop AND coffee so I decided to pass and sit at the window facing lounge area.|
|UNLIMITED COFFEE!!! Yep, my favorite feature.|
Also, I'm not sure if this is protocol, but I used my 1x Day Pass to skip the boarding lines and go through the Sky Priority lane to board early. Both ticket checkers at JFK and Narita weren't sure if the Day Pass qualified for me to use that lane but they embraced the holiday spirit and let me in. So if you do get the Day Pass, it wouldn't hurt to ask!
Okay, it is now 1:30am (12/25th so MERRY XMAS EVERYONE!). I am going to bed and tomorrow I can start my Taiwan Fun Time! Woohoo!!!
