5 Factors to Choose Airline

English, Español, Français, 日本語

As I travelled whenever I had time since I was 17 years old, I used so many different airlines. In the beginning, the most important thing for me was the ticket price, which was every thing.

However, little by little I came to understand that it was not all. What’s important for me now is the service. With that in mind, XXX is the best airline for the reasons I will describe below.

In my previous blog, I wrote about general theories about Project management. But work is not what occupies a life. If I consider a life as a coin, the work could be one part of it as it takes a big deal of ammount, but the othese side of it could be entertainment and private life (By the way, there is no coin in Mongolia, which was very helpful to get along).

If I have to mention the best 5 things about Mongolia off the top of my head, the first thing which comes to mind is….beer (*I am not addict).

So let’s talk about drink first.

The sunlight I saw for the first time in Mongolia was still there at 22:30, which was quite exciting to me. While reflecting this amazing fact, I realized that it was time to sleep.

The other thing I was impressed about was very tasty Mongolian beer (not vodka!). Given that the 2 beers I bought were both very good, I decided to do an experiment with 10 different beers (of which 9 were good!) My favorite goes to GEM.

While I was about to fall asleep, the sunlight and the left over of my beer were still there.

After deciding to leave Chile, it’s time to go to Mongolia!

First of all, I was going to go directly from Chile to Mongolia, but given that the destination is the other side of the planet, I made a decision to go to Japan first to prepare my self. Even Chingis Khaan managed to expand his empire with a lot of preparation (I think).

Before leaving Chile, I tried to meet as many close people as possible to eat out. At that time, I didn’t know that Chilean ingredients such as avocado (“Palta” in Chile), seafood and wine were that valuable, as I took them for granted. Especially since I was born and raised in Japan, I was used to seafood (for the next 3 years I really appreciated every opportunity to have sea food as Mongolia is landlocked country).

After all, we can appreciate the value of something when we lose it, be it health, salmon or Palta.

So I will briefly write about the path to arrive Mongolia.

One common theme among 4 moviesーwhat you are supposed to be

The four movies I’ve watched recently moved me to tears. They are about (1) non-fighting bull in Spain, (2) Big black guy who found his home in another side of town (3) Taking bear in London and (4) Show of unique humans in New York. Although those are totally different movies, they have one common theme which teaches us a very important lesson: “What you are supposed to be is something you can change if you wish and go for it”.

The time of transition has come.

That’s why I decided to write a series of post about Mongolia, the country I lived for around 3 years.

In this series, I will write about many things such as context of countryside, city and suburban area, culture and people I met as well as my reflection on those, etc.

But firstly, I would like to address the answer to the following question I tend to receive from many people:

Why Mongolia?  Continue reading
