EZE to MDZ – Buenos Aires to Mendoza

“Mendoza it is!,” I emailed Feng a few minutes after finalizing this leg of the trip, i.e. booking the hotel and the plane ticket, hoping my credit card wouldn’t be flagged for suspicious purchases—I mean, I usually use it to buy groceries at Walmart, in Ottawa, Scotiabank could legitimately worry about my whereabouts. Both transactions went through and Expedia congratulated me—“You’re going to Mendoza!” Why Mendoza? Because it’s across the country, on the east side of the Andes, close to Chile....

"A modern-day draft, if marketed carefully and cleverly, could foster patriotism via the investment of every family in the nation. A greater involvement of the population to include National (nonmilitary) Service could reach every social demographic within the U.S. " The comments above were included in the recommendations from the Selective Service System made to the National Commission on Military, National, and Public Service. This report was sent to the NCMNPS in December 2017, but wasn'...

Is Hyatt Place Breakfast Really Restricted to Members Booking Direct? Not So Fast!

Effective November 1 Hyatt Place hotels were supposed to stop providing all guests with free breakfast and limit breakfast only to members of World of Hyatt who book through Hyatt channels (or corporate booking tools, since that's good business). In practice the Hyatt Place "mornings are for members" slogan isn't as cut and dried as corporate's rules appear.

Why I Was Not Thrilled With the Holiday Inn Lisbon – Continental Hotel Property

The Aeroporto station of the Metropolitano de Lisboa was closed without explanation when I arrived at Lisbon Airport. Instead of the short ride to the Holiday Inn Lisbon - Continental at which I was staying, I had to figure out an alternate way to get to the hotel property — and after assessing all of my options, I decided to walk from the airport terminal to the hotel property, which consumed approximately 75 minutes. When I finally arrived at the Holiday Inn Lisbon - Continental, I thought... ...

Dealing With American Airlines as Operations Melt Down in Snow

When You Come to Provence

    If you come to Provence take time to be, time to let Provence get under your skin and into your heart. Provence is a place to wander aimlessly, to taste the countryside, to soak in the sounds and to follow your thoughts until they are just a mountain of softness and valleys of delight. Provence is spread out like a quilt of many colors starting with the sky and all the way to the blue sea, from the olive trees, vineyards, tiled roofs, confit pots, cigalles, rosé...
