Review: LAN Airlines

by gigi on November 24, 2009

When Jenkins and I booked our flights to Peru, we quickly realized that there was no direct flight to Peru from Vancouver. We flew to LA and from there, hopped onto a LAN Airlines flight to Lima in Peru. We had never heard of LAN Airlines before our trip but it is a part of […]


Review: Long’s Noodle House
