The Ten Types of Travel Everyone Should Experience

“To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,To gain all while you give,To roam the roads of lands remote,To travel is to live.”  – Hans Christian Andersen As we move through our lives, if we’re lucky, we’ll experience a variety of different adventures that take us away from home.  Some of them will break your heartContinue reading “The Ten Types of Travel Everyone Should Experience”

Cynical Naïvete

I am terminally naïve, in a cynical sort of way. I believe that if someone is nice to my face, they will be so behind my back.  I believe that if I am kind and genuine to others, that they will return the favor. And, I trust in the abundance of the universe to protect me fromContinue reading “Cynical Naïvete”

She Who Gossips

I hate the phrase catty. I find it insulting, genderist, and diminishing to all women. But, sometimes a bitch and a cat have to get into a little scrape – and rare is the cat who comes out the winner in that battle. Growing up, my mother always said, “He who gossips with you willContinue reading “She Who Gossips”

Dining Alone

At a slim 5’3″ with long blonde hair I don’t exactly look like someone who “needs” to dine alone on a Saturday night. But, one can only eat so many bland Hilton lobby bar dinners – so eventually during every work trip I venture out for local cuisine. Anyone who’s travelled alone extensively will tellContinue reading “Dining Alone”

Packing Tips from a Professional Packer

I’ve traveled around the world a handful of times, and had all sorts of travel surprises. But, one thing I have learned is that (assuming your luggage arrives with you) a well-packed suitcase is the key to a smooth journey. And, another plus, a well-packed suitcase doesn’t need checking. I have a few key philosophiesContinue reading “Packing Tips from a Professional Packer”

Medallion Status & A Passport Stamp

Next voyage, Chicago, where I once lived and haven’t visited in over a decade, not since September 11, 2001, when my life (and the world) changed forever. Stamps overlapping on a watermarked page, adventures represented by Visas to exotic locations. A Medallion Status tag dangling from a well-worn carryon bag, highlights the accomplishment, education, andContinue reading “Medallion Status & A Passport Stamp”

Shoe Sachets

Shoe Sachets keep your shoes, bags, and luggage smelling fresh and clean. When I’m not travelling I store them in my handbags in my closet (and they make my closet smell divine).  They take only a few minutes and have a bjillion uses. Instructions 1. Collect all your old panty hose with runs in them. 2.Continue reading “Shoe Sachets”

The Buffer Day

One o’clock on a Friday afternoon is a perfectly reasonable time to depart from Salt Lake City International Airport en route to the lush green countryside of England. The airport is busy and fully staffed but not yet crowded with weekend warriors and the commuting execs have already cleared out of the Priority security lanes,Continue reading “The Buffer Day”

That YOU May Contribute A Verse

As I wandered alone through the streets of Istanbul, marveling at it’s foreignness, and similarity, I was repeatedly reminded of a message. Yes, it’s currently inserted in an iPad commercial, but I’ll take inspiration where I find it. O Me, O Life Walt Whitman Oh me! Oh life! of the questions of these recurring, OfContinue reading “That YOU May Contribute A Verse”
