How did it get to be September? I’m sure many of you have gone through something similar. Time seems to be crawling along, and yet it’s September. The last time I got on a plane was in mid-March. I haven’t checked my records, but it’s been at least 10 years since I’ve been home this long. I’m guessing another month or so will be my longest streak since I was in college. You probably think I’m desperate to get back on a plane. While I do love to travel, I’ve […]
As the world starts to open up again, bit by bit, I see a number of folks begin to travel. I also see a number of folks who are planning travel. And, another group of people who haven’t even begun planning a trip. I’ve been home for almost 90 days now. That’s the longest stretch I’ve been home since our son was born a decade ago.

This isn’t an up-to-date listing of current events revolving around […]

GeekyPizza 3 is less than a week away. I’m excited to get together with people in an informal setting and talk about travel. We saw some of the same faces at the first two happy hours that Jeanne and I put together. And, based on the registration list this time around I’m looking forward to seeing some of those same faces again along with more first-timers! Next Tuesday, October 25th, my partner in crime Jeanne from Le Chic Geek and I will be hanging out at Dino’s Grotto in Shaw. Well, at least […]
