My experience as a Business Class passenger
I haven’t been back to Serbia for almost two years, and so I decided to take a one-month vacation to visit my family. When I was booking my plane ticket of course I decided to go with Swiss Airlines, just because I get a layover in Zurich to see my best friend.
Even though it’s only for a couple of hours, we at least can meet up in person and chat, and it feels really good when you’re living apart like we are. It’s just not easy to get some time together, so we take whatever we can get. We are planning though on a “best friends trip” soon, I can’t wait for that !
I went for the Business Class ticket since I had a lot of luggages, and I didn’t want to be at the airport 2 hours prior… the economy lines for check-in and security are such a waste of time, and my flight was 6:30 am. No thanks.
I had an amazing experience and I don’t think I’m going to fly economy again. On short-haul flights you can’t even request any particular food, they give you the snacks they have planned. But I’m gluten free intolerant, so I was used to bring my own snacks or starve the whole flight.
In Business they bring you whatever fits your diet, and not only that but you get access to the lounges, which have buffets with delicious food and drinks you can order tailored to your needs – and it’s all included with your ticket. No extra fees, not a care in the world basically.
Priority boarding and get off the aircraft, as well as getting your luggages right away is extra. Also the fact that while I was at the airport I had showers available, and high speed internet wherever I went was the best feeling. I definitively think that it’s worth the price, it’s profitable and I don’t know why the heck I hadn’t done this before. From now on, I know better.
Food is my religion
I have honestly asked myself a couple times if I should become a food blogger because of how obsessed with food I am… can’t stop talking about it, can’t stop taking pictures of my meals and sharing them;
Which is such a strange behavior if I think about it, but it’s so satisfying on a personal level, I can’t even explain it. So here we go again…
I went to Pouchkine for macarons and an iced cream coffee, so tasty. Another day to Noglu for a gluten free breakfast, which was nice – but my favorite bakery remains Chambelland, they make by far the most delicious sweets, pies & pastries. Also had a beautiful dinner at Miznon, an Israeli restaurant with my boyfriend.
Exclusive artistic walk in the streets of Paris
My sisters & I signed up for this new surreal walk organized by Apple in partnership with the New Museum of New York. An experiment using augmented reality on iPhone and a pair of Beats, for an immersive audio-visual effect.
Six contemporary artists have created ephemeral works of art, you have Nick Cave, Nathalie Djurberg & Hans Berg, Cao Fei, John Giorno, Carsten Höller and Pippilotti Rist. We entered their fascinating, strange and even crazy worlds, and we got to see, hear and feel, what art means in a different way.
If you are lucky enough to be close to one of the six Apple Stores that offer this walk, which is still available until the 5th September, then absolutely go ahead and do it… it’s beautiful, incredible and inspiring.
