I am back in LA after a month long trip that started in Budapest and went through Vienna, Salzburg, Munich and then off to Singapore before returning to LA. Â Â I learned a couple of things on this trip.
1. Â Lufthansa airlines doesn’t offer much leg room in coach and this matters on a 12 hour plane trip. Â 2. Â Singapore Airlines Business Class is outstanding. Â 3. Â When you fly from Munich to Singapore, you fly over some tough parts of the world. Â 4. Â While in Austria, there is only one thing on the menu called Schnitzel. Â 5. Â The Austrian Emperor had wonderful palaces. Â 6. I like German beer. Â 7. Â Europeans need to stop smoking so much. Â 8. Salzburg offers easy access to wonderful nature spots just over the German border. Â 9. Â Budapest has a really cool center city. Â 10. If you are looking for a nice hotel in Singapore, you have to stay at the Marina Bay Sands! Â 11. I like European trains.
For those few RBC folks, who want to hear more about “free markets” and climate change adaptation — watch this.
