Third Time the Charm: Planning a Perfect Day in San Diego

  Until last year, I hadn’t been to San Diego since 2001 – a long time by any measure. Then, through a variety of quirks of fate, I suddenly found myself visiting three times in a single year. Those repeat visits not only made me appreciate the city much more than I otherwise would have, but it also helped me fine-tune what I love doing most in the city. My final visit of 2018 was sailing with Crystal Cruises onboard the Crystal Serenity; San Diego was the final port of call before disembarking ...

Assuming you were t...

Magical and Fun Things to do in Sedona with Kids (or without kids)

Tesla’s interchangeable travel-pod system shows modularity in transportation

If any company had to build something as outlandish as a pod system with a fixed electric powertrain platform and an interchangeable upper pod based on use, it would probably be Tesla (or maybe we could count this Mercedes Benz concept too). Designed as a part of his thesis project, Fábio Martins’ conceptual Tesla Pod system is pretty intriguing, and especially makes sense, given that Musk is launching the Boring Tunnel project that will only work with a handful of cars that are compatible with ...

The Benefits of Traveling as a Business Owner

Traveling can benefit just about anyone, but the benefits of travel are even greater for established business owners. Finding time to visit another country, or even just another city, can impact you physically, mentally, and professionally all at the same time. Too often, business owners delay or avoid traveling because they’re afraid it will disrupt their business goals—pulling them away from their enterprises for too long. In reality, taking more trips can help you improve your business (and...

Dining at all-inclusive resorts

When I was 14 , the food at Club Med was the greatest thing I’d ever seen. Instead of the plates of carefully placed organic spinach salad and tabbouleh I was used to at home, I found endless bowls of spaghetti tossed in beef-filled tomato sauce. I had whole pizzas I could just take. Trays of cookies. A guy who’d cut me all the prime rib I wanted. Seconds? Try ninths. My sister and I would compete to see who could eat more, piling each plate a little higher than the last. If I hadn’t been 14, ...

Sights in West Lothian, Scotland

Travelers visit Scotland to experience rugged landscapes, ancient history, and unique culture. While West Lothian has all this, its location between Edinburgh and Glasgow means it’s often bypassed in favor of the bigger cities — despite being located just off the M8 motorway. Sculpture gardens, award-winning theaters, famous movie locations, and royal palaces await those willing to make a pit stop, and if all this isn’t enough, it’s also home to a famous queen, a Time-Lord, and a global singi...

China proposes child-only train car

Everyone knows what it’s like to ride a train and roll their eyes at misbehaved children darting up and down the aisles, throwing their toys, or screaming at their parents. In China, many passengers have had enough. The idea of introducing “child-only train cars” — designated for young children and their parents — has gained a lot of traction recently, especially as it’s been discussed widely on Weibo, China’s version of Twitter. People are mainly fed up with what the Chinese call “bear child...

The best (and worst) airline food

Airlines aren’t known for their culinary prowess. Putting the words “airplane” and “food” together inspires a mental image of mystery meat and peas stuffed into a tinfoil tray. But for one man, the meals are the inspiration behind a dedicated food Instagram and blog. Nik Loukas has been reviewing airline meals on his blog, Inflight Feed, and Instagram of the same name since 2012. Over the past seven years, he’s flown on (and eaten on) more than 500 flights, consuming everything from sushi to ...

Marriott CEO Arne Sorenson’s Bizarre Interview: We Stored Your Unencrypted Passport #s to Help You

Marriott CEO Arne Sorenson comes off as out of touch with his customers’ concerns when he claims frustrations with their loyalty program are just ‘noise around the edges’ but that hardly seems to be a one-off example. He gave a rather bizarre interview to CNBC at the Davos World Economic Forum where he floated the idea of recession being a good thing ‘to get it over with’ and suggested that Marriott was storing the customer passport numbers that were hacked to help customers.

A ramshackle old sushi shop and its chef

A little over a year ago I posted a photo of this wonderfully ramshackle and incredibly faded old sushi restaurant. At the time, the old man standing by the door led me to believe it was still a going concern. Subsequent walks past, however, appeared to suggest otherwise. There was sometimes a light on which seemed like a good sign, but there was never a telltale noren outside indicating it was actually open. Until, that is, I passed by during a photowalk tour over the weekend. The old man ...
