#climatestrike vs my brain: i am struggling with pessimism and hopelessness

I started writing this post in September, after the global Climate Strike.It was exciting to see that so many people -- millions around the globe -- understand the urgency and are willing to take to the streets. I thought, This is beautiful! This is amazing! ... and This won't change anything. Both at the same time.I hate writing that. I hate feeling this way.Along with Climate Strike, there are other positive developments -- extinction rebellion, for example, and an increasing number of civil ...

Gloomy sky, but...

Yes, we have had some grey days…, but Paris is still there. I realised that, on this photo, you can not only see the Sacré Cœur, but also the top of the Opera Garnier, Napoleon on Place Vendôme… and, in the very front, the statue of Thomas Jefferson. I take the opportunity to wish you a Happy New Year ! [Author: PeterParis]

The first five days of 2020

Today is the fifth day of the year / decade / whatever you want to call 2020. And I know that these 5 days haven't been the greatest of them all. I have been unwell since the 28th and today it's the 8th day when I've had something or the other affecting me. Its nothing serious (I hope). Just some cold, cough, sore SORE SSOORREE throat, choked nose and general lethargy that the Bombay weather has brought upon us. Oh, I slept in the wrong position and my entire left side is hurting like a bitch. Y...

I Got One Detail Of The Mileage Run Mexican Jail Saga Wrong

A former producer of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette took an end of year mileage run and wound up in a Mexican prison. Many people were calling into questions details of his story but most of it actually checks out. However Kimmel reached out to me and let me know there was one detail of the story I had gotten wrong though. All this wasn't even to renew his Executive Platinum (100,000 mile) status. He was mileage running to make Platinum Pro (75,000 mile status). Continue reading I Got One...

Wait: Hotel Charges Use of Safe Plus Tax — But Not Responsible For Valuables?!?

You might have noticed that the math did not quite add up when you read this article which I wrote pertaining to being charged $1.50 for use of a safe — with limited warranty — in addition to my room rate and tax when I stayed at the Sleep Inn Beaver – Beckley hotel property in West Virginia. The initial estimated total for the room when I reserved it was... The post Wait: Hotel Charges Use of Safe Plus Tax — But Not Responsible For Valuables?!? appeared first on The Gate.

13 Best Songs About Travel

Following my stab at a list of the 13 best movies about travel, I thought I'd work to come up with the very best songs about travel. That's a very different exercise than the best travel songs, this isn't a 'play list for the road' it's about borrowing someone else's poetry to describe the travel experience. There's no question that George Gershwin didn't write Rhapsody in Blue to be about travel, but it's equally clear that the 1924 composition has become inextricably linked with United Airlin...

River ship review: the SS Joie de Vivre

The SS Joie de Vivre, Uniworld’s latest offering, is the first super ship built at 125 metres, as opposed to the standard 135. As such, it’s able to slip through France’s winding channels to dock at moorings that are simply too small for other ships. It can even get right into the heart of Paris […] The post River ship review: the SS Joie de Vivre appeared first on A Luxury Travel Blog.
