Fine Dining at a Vegas Buffet

For Mother’s Day, I choose the time-honored tradition of leaving my children at home with Grandma and hitting Las Vegas, which, of course, includes a trip to the omnipresent buffets. This year’s choice, Bacchanal at Caesar’s Palace. Where for $45 one is given the opportunity to gorge on 500 small plate choices, a carving station,Continue reading “Fine Dining at a Vegas Buffet”

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”

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”

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”

Local Currency

I don’t speak French, Mandarin, Spanish or Arabic – but I know a handful of insults in each. My map-reading skills leave much to be desired, and I’ll only rent a car in the simplest of cities to navigate. Instead, I rely on the navigation tools that have never lead me wrong: research, a friendlyContinue reading “Local Currency”

Airport Etiquette

Having flown extensively, all over the world, for business and pleasure, as a professional flight attendant, an eager spring breaker, and a harried mother traveling alone with two young children, I have developed a very definite opinion as to the most efficient way to navigate the bizarre social interaction that is The Airport. But, someContinue reading “Airport Etiquette”

My Travel Items: The Holy Grail

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.  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”
