#Japan #Roadtrip Part 6: The #OigawaRailway from #ShinKanaya to #Senzu, both #Shizuoka Prefecture. In Japan you still find many active steam trains, but what makes Oigawa Railway so special is that it is the only steam train to operate year-round on a regular, scheduled service. And it runs as an Express Train on the route, overtaking the local (electrical) train at a half-way stop! The landscape to both sides is amazing as the train crosses the river multiple times while going up into the mountains. You also see many tea and rice fields. If you want to ride a steam train in Japan, search for SL trains as they are called here. SL for Steam Locomotive. .

Have you ever seen the original #Geysir in #Iceland ? It explodes about every 3-7 minutes and reaches heights of up to 35 meters! This one was at nearly max height and was close to taking down the #drone hovering at 35 meters above ground. . #amazing #instatravel #travel #travelgram #travelblogger #ontheroad #wanderlust #luxurytravel #beautifuldestinations #bestvacations #vacation #vacations #wonderful_places #welivetoexplore #explore #exploremore #holiday #holidays @djiglobal #mavicpro ...

Impressions from my visit to TWA Hotel at #JFK Airport in #NewYork. The place is the absolute heaven for every aviation nut and lover of nostalgia. You feel like being transferred back to 1962 and except the flatscreen TVs in your room, there is nothing reminding you of the year 2019 in that building. From the old 1960s @time magazines on the rooms, over the TWA staff uniforms in the lobby to the cocktail bar placed inside an old #Lockheed #Constellation, this place screams 1962! The on-top bonus for you avgeeks is the infinity pool on the roof of the hotel, with amazing views of JFK‘s apron and runways. ❤️✈️ . #flying #instaviation #flyingislife #amazing #instatravel #avgeek #travel #travelgram #aviation #flight #flightblogger #travel #travelblogger #frequentflyer #flyer #upintheair #ontheroad #wanderlust #businessclass #firstclass #TWAHotel @twahotel #nyc ...

#irops or irregular operations can happen on any airline, but it depends on how they deal with them. Today my @americanair @airbus #A321 from @phxskyharbor #PHX to Philadelphia #PHL had a computer problem after boarding was already completed. So we deplaned the aircraft and got assigned a new gate with a new aircraft. This all was done very quickly, but still resulted in me missing my connection in Philly. #AmericanAirlines acted quickly and rebooked me on their direct flight from Phoenix to @heathrow_airport #LHR, from where I will be able to reach my final flight to Amsterdam @schiphol airport #AMS. So instead of sleeping in @british_airways #ClubWorld today, it will be #AA’s Business Class, probably in the BE Aerospace Super Diamond Seat as N762AN is scheduled to operate today’s flight. Good work by AA and their very friendly staff here in Phoenix! . #flying #instaviation #flyingislife #amazing #instatravel #avgeek #travel #travelgram #aviation #flight #flightblogger #travel #travelblogger #frequentflyer #flyer #upintheair #ontheroad #wanderlust #businessclass #firstclass @oneworld ...

For once I’m not on a plane, but on a train, but a very special one, so I will share this here, too: The #OigawaRailway from #ShinKanaya to #Senzu, both #Shizuoka Prefecture. In #Japan you still find many active steam trains, but what makes Oigawa Railway so special is that it is the only steam train to operate year-round on a regular, scheduled service.

Have a look into @british_airways #ConcordeRoom, an exclusive #lounge for passengers flying First Class or making more than 5000 #TierPoints in BA‘s frequent flyer program per year. For reference: BA Gold (@oneworld #Emerald) is 1500 Tier Points. The #CCR as it gets called is smaller and more private than BA‘s standard First Class Lounge and offers à la carte dining and a fully stocked bar with very personal service. . #flying #instaviation #flyingislife #amazing #instatravel #avgeek #travel #travelgram #aviation #flight #flightblogger #travel #travelblogger #frequentflyer #flyer #upintheair #ontheroad #wanderlust #businessclass #firstclass @heathrow_airport #Terminal5 ...

Early #1989, the East German government of the socialistic #GDR bought new @airbus #A310 aircraft from West Germany for their national airline #Interflug, mainly because their longhaul routes to Cuba, North Korea and other states of the #EastBloc had to make fuel stops in free “Western” states due to the highly inefficient Russian aircraft they used before (#Il62 and #Il18). On these fuel stops East German citizens regularly used the transit stop to flee from the oppressive Eastern regime into the free Western states. . #flying #instaviation #flyingislife #amazing #instatravel #avgeek #travel #travelgram #aviation #flight #flightblogger #travel #travelblogger #frequentflyer #flyer #upintheair #ontheroad #wanderlust #businessclass #firstclass #airbus310 #DDR ...

When the @airbus #a320 had it’s first flight in 1987 @lufthansa still had its old livery they used between 1970 and 1988. But when the their first A320 was delivered in 1988, they already had adopted their new livery (all white with grey belly), which wasn’t replaced until 2018. So this model from 1987 is a very rare collectible... . #flying #instaviation #flyingislife #amazing #instatravel #avgeek #travel #travelgram #aviation #flight #flightblogger #travel #travelblogger #frequentflyer #flyer #upintheair #ontheroad #wanderlust #businessclass #firstclass #airbus320 ...

Currently flying around Norway for 10 days on @flywideroe using their #ExploreNorway Ticket, which allows 14 days of unlimited flights for a very fair fixer price. And while exploring and enjoying this country is my main focus point (see @carst_on_the_road ), I sure put in as many flights into my schedule as possible. On this trip I already got their @bombardier_jets Dash 8 -100, -200 and -300 models. Especially happy for the rare -200! A few more flights on the -100 and -300 are scheduled in the next days before their -400 will take me from @bergenairport to @billundairport on the 12th! . https://my.flightradar24.com/CARST . #flying #instaviation #flyingislife #amazing #instatravel #avgeek #travel #travelgram #aviation #flight #flightblogger #travel #travelblogger #frequentflyer #flyer #upintheair #ontheroad #wanderlust #businessclass #firstclass ...
