    This brought back SO many memories of Kyoto – and your photography is absolutely amazing! I only spent a few days there a couple of years ago, but hope to go back in off season for more.

      Aren’t the photos incredible? And I’m so happy to hear that! Definitely have to go back! 🙂

    Just wanted to point out a mistake. The iconic ramen place is “Ichiran” people line up for it and buy packets of the instant version to take home. Ippudo is a different chain, but also ramen, but the bowls and seats look completely different. Been to Japan 10+ times over the past 10 years, there’s also a ton of other regions worth checking out, like Hokkaido, Hokuriku, and Kyushu. A lot of places are accessible via the Shinkansen, and way less touristy! Hope you will get a chance to visit other places soon

      Hi Ariel! Thank you for the note. It’s been adjusted in the post 🙂


Meet @reserveps — the best kept secret at LAX! ✈️
PS is located in a private terminal at LAX with luxury suites with white glove service before and after your flight.

Concierge will check your bags with the airline and bring you caviar and champagne to enjoy while you wait.

I recommend arriving 3 hours before your flight so you have time to enjoy everything included in your booking—like chef-prepared meals, craft-cocktails, and spa treatments.

Before you head to your flight, you can fill a to-go box from the snack bar.

You’ll be escorted through their private security screening and chauffeured directly to your aircraft!

Now for the details…

Think of this like a Soho House membership for frequent flyers.

To have a private, line-free TSA screening, dedicated customs and immigration services on arrival, and expert drivers trained on the airfield to take guests directly to their aircrafts at one of the world’s busiest airports is a luxury you literally cannot buy anywhere else!

You can sign up for an annual membership for discounted rates on their private suites or salon (perfect for solo travelers). Or you can book on a per-use basis.

Visit their page for more information on pricing and the service!
