Travel Log: Istanbul

January 17 – 26: Istanbul Turkey The Agenda (in rough) Delta Airlines Flights, connect through Charles de Gaul – one of my very least favorite airports in the world, but at least it’s full of cranky French people so … awesome!

Eavesdropping in the Club Lounge

It’s January in Utah which means something very definite in the airport Club Lounge: Sundance. I’m surrounded by the rampant douchebaggery that is profitable indie filmmaking and delightful phrases surround me: “You’re a giant and you’re surrounded by pygmies.” “Daddy!” (Giggled by a twenty-four year old snuggled into the lap of her sixty year oldContinue reading “Eavesdropping in the Club Lounge”

Every moment was a moment

Before right now … in this quiet space where I recuperate there was Sound and Fury ~ of little significance. And I listened.

But, someContinue reading “Airport Etiquette”

Everyone who travels eventually finds their must-have travel items. These are mine … 1. Dryer Sheets – I love the way dryer sheets ensure everything comes out of your suitcase smelling fresh and clean.Β  I use them when packing, then store my empty suitcases with a few dryer sheets tucked into their nooks and cranniesContinue reading “My Travel Items: The Holy Grail”

Packing … the great flirtation of a voyage

Packing is the most optimistic part of a journey. Building your tool box – Chapstick, leather belt, and iPhone charger – you feel optimistic and in control, The Captain of the Journey. Oh Captain, do tell, what happens when the taxi driver can’t find your hotel and his meter and your Lira are dangerously closeContinue reading “Packing … the great flirtation of a voyage”
