So you're thinking about a transpacific crossing to the US, there are a myriad of choices you can make though maybe some you should avoid.

In this article I'll cover a couple of scenarios: Arriving and connecting to an
I am proud to announce the birth of Tahoeaussie. This is my first post so start blogging!
I want to share the joy I get out of going to Tahoe skiing with others. I'll blog about the best ways to get there and about what you can do around Tahoe.
