Travel

It’s been a while since I spoke about my various adventures in travel. Truth be told, I haven’t traveled much this past year. Due to various projects, I haven’t been to California in 14 months, but that is where I’m typing this from now, and sure enough, things happened along the trip to getting here.… read more


Travel to Scotland. See soccer played for the love of the game. Long time readers of this site know I’m a Manchester United supporter. I have been to several matches in the past, but this year I’m in Edinburgh for the beginning of my U.K. vacation and decided to give another club a go. With… read more


Some times the universe is just not on your side when you travel. My 2015 vacation to England was one of those times. From the time I arrived on Friday Nov. 27 the winds in Northern England were just killer. I spent my first two days wandering Manchester, then on Sunday and Tuesday I headed… read more

By the time this post publishes I will be somewhere in the vicinity of Greenland. Yes, for the fifth year in a row I am on my way to the U.K. for vacation. Folks keep asking me why I choose to keep going to the same place every year. Why not return to my beloved… read more


I will never understand why people don’t join loyalty programs. I made a rule a long time ago to join every loyalty program out there so no matter what airline I fly on, company I rent cars from or hotel I stay at I’m earning points. I switched car rental companies last October. Before I… read more


Do you ever really think about how you pack before you leave for a trip? You should. In 1996 I flew to Huntsville, Alabama on assignment for Combo magazine. It was a very last minute trip and I had been left next to no time to change planes on a layover. Add in a delay… read more

Greetings from the O’Hare Terminal 3, Concourse K American Airlines Admiral’s Club… for the fourth year running. Thanksgiving 2011 was spent in this cubicle. Thanksgiving 2012 was also spent in this cubicle. Thanksgiving 2013 was, you guessed it, spent in this cubicle. So, why not Thanksgiving 2014? And, yes, I am heading to England again… read more


There is a time and a place to get upset with travel delays, but when it’s a mechanical issue that caused it, that’s not one of those times. My 8:40 a.m. American Airlines flight from Irvine, Calif. to Dallas, Texas – and then on to Kansas City – experienced a mechanical issue today. We ended… read more

Let me just say this: If you’ve ever wondered if Scotland is worth visiting, it most definitely is. As I write this I am on the train heading South back into England – if you don’t understand how this is a difference, read up on the United Kingdom – and this post is going slow… read more

No Pictures!

I am enjoying the heck out of Edinburgh, but it sure would be nice if I had a bunch of pictures to show you. After what I termed “The Sleep of the Dead” following my trials and tribulations to get here, I started off the morning at Holyrood Palace, the home of the Queen when… read more


Travel, even in this technologically advanced world we live in, is still more about luck than any sort of science. As I write this, I am on my third train of the day as I begin my annual vacation. Why is this a problem? I was originally booked for a direct train. Mind you this… read more


Greetings from the O’Hare Terminal 3, Concourse K American Airlines Admiral’s Club… for the third year running. Thanksgiving 2011 was spent in this cubicle. Thanksgiving 2012 was also spent in this cubicle. So, why not Thanksgiving 2013? And, yes, I am heading to England again, but first will be a detour up into Scotland to… read more
