The Hunt for the Right Hotel

When I’m booking a trip, choosing the hotel becomes a Sherlockian task. I’ll spend hours, nay days, researching where to stay. Finding the right accommodations is part of my fun.

Men in Bars

When work takes me on the road, dining alone is a pleasure I cherish. Sometimes it means a night in, complete with robe, slippers, room service and a sappy rom-com or it might be a seat for one at the end of the bar at some local hot spot. Either way, I enjoy the solitude after a day of being “on”. So it really sucks when someone ruins my fun.

Maui Revisited

I just got back from a week in Maui. It was raining on my last day so the post-vacation shock was somewhat mitigated. I haven’t been to the Hawaiian isle in almost eight years. In addition to the stunning natural beauty, I was impressed by the scope of hotel, dining and shopping options.

The Travelers’ Code

Air travel for the masses has become nothing other than undignified.

Social Media Frenzy

GO CANADA!

The XXII Olympic winter games officially begin today in Sochi and I’m stressed out. To even think of coming close to what we achieved last time in Vancouver, when our athletes won an unprecedented 26 medals including the most golds (14) won by any country in the world, is daunting. How can they top that?

Time to Kill….in LA (ish)

When someone says “LA”, it can mean a lot of things. It could mean you’re in Malibu or Santa Monica or Hollywood or the Pacific Palisades or many points in between. The place is sprawling and the traffic is HIDEOUS. When I go I do my best to restrict my movements to one or two neighbouring areas. Anticipating road congestion is part of the planning. (Note to self: Do not fly into LAX at 5pm on a Friday.)

Girl Crush

I have a girl crush. Crushes to be exact. Before you get all excited let’s define the term. According to the Urban Dictionary (some website I found online) a girl crush is:
