Mad Mother Nature
August 27th, 2011

This past week has been a weird one for the US east coast.   We experienced an earthquake – however small it may have been – and now we’re prepped for a hurricane. It may be down-graded to a tropical storm as we speak, but either way, a tough thunderstorm ruffles our feathers so people [...]

August 22nd, 2011

I recently flew to San Antonio via Houston on Southwest Airlines.  Everyone has recently been so down on the airlines in general, and I have to admit I’m not much of an exception to this. However, this trip was eventful enough that I felt that I had to blog about it, and point out the [...]

What Should the Airlines Do?
June 7th, 2010

If you’ve traveled, even a tiny bit, in the last few years, you’re probably fed up with air travel. Flight prices have escalated by hundreds of dollars.  You can’t eat, stay warm with a blanket or check your luggage without paying for it, and it seems you have to take off half your clothing to [...]

Should Everyone Have a Passport?
March 26th, 2010

Being in the travel industry, and having started traveling overseas at the age of 16, I almost assume everyone, or at least every adult, has a passport. To me, it’s like a drivers license or a social security card (if you’re a U.S. citizen) – perhaps I shouldn’t assume everyone has those either. Furthermore, I [...]
