How Long Do You Need to Unwind?


How Long Do You Need to Unwind?   And so we’re back. A lousy three-days. Did you make the most of every second? Did you bugger off work early? Come home as late as decency would allow on Monday night and crawl into work this morning? Did you make every second count? And did it? Did it count? Did you come back feeling blessed for your life, your wife, kids, husband, close airport, frequent flyer miles? Or was it not enough? Did it take just too damn long to log … More…


Getting Drunk in Patagonia

drinking wine in patagonia

Getting Drunk in Patagonia Yep, that’s right, getting drunk. As in primary activity, purpose for travel. Goal. Don’t call AA. I want no sponsors knocking at my door, heaving their great big book of troubles. If they went to Patagonia, they’d get drunk too.

Do Low-Cost Airlines Mean Big-Time Headache?


Low-Cost Airlines are a great way to travel within Europe.

The only problem is: Most of them land miles and miles away from where you think you’re going They’ll leave without you if you’re late.
