Portugal Highlights in 17 Photos

I recently returned from my first visit to Portugal and the trip was so amazing that I know it’ll take me many posts to properly share what the experience was like. Before I start sharing those stories in earnest though, I want to first publish some of my favorite photos from the trip. Even though the weather wasn’t entirely cooperative, I still had an amazing river cruise experience with Viking and I know that my first visit won’t be my last. Lisbon Lisbon Lisbon Lis...

Travel is a Privilege

Updated: 1/16/2020 | January 16, 2020 Let’s face it: not everyone is going to able to travel. Whether it’s money, family obligations, or circumstance, travel is out of reach for a large percentage of the world’s population. In the “quit your job to travel the world” cheerleading that happens so often on travel websites (including this one), we often forget that it’s not so easy for everyone. Yes, years on the road have shown me that, for many of us, our inability to travel is partly a mindset i...

Should we be worried about a possible military draft?

Earlier this month, sabre-rattling and threats of further escalation of the war between the US and Iran led to widespread fear that the reinstatement of military conscription might be imminent. Those fears were reinforced by a wave of fake induction notices sent by text messaging to potential draftees' cellphones. Are fears of a new military draft justified? Was any of this a surprise? What can we learn from this episode? (Posted by Edward, 16 January 2020, 07:04)

If Baba Ramdev can get Babul Supriyo a BJP ticket in 3 days, what’s the big deal over a Lingayat mutt head demanding cabinet berths for 3 Lingayat MLAs?

  The most touching aspect of a Lingayat mutt head publicly “threatening” Karnataka chief minister B.S. Yediyurappa to include Lingayat MLAs in his cabinet, failing which he would incur the wrath of the entire Lingayat community, is the faux outrage—first from Yediyurappa himself on stage, and then from the outside world. On social media there has been a welter of criticism at the audacity of the swami to upbraid an elected politician—and grudging appreciation of Yediyurappa’s angry comeback...

Gone But Not Forgotten

If you follow me on Instagram you will know that my phone got stolen on a busy bus. With the strikes still going on, but slowly getting better, buses and trains are crowded. I will clutch my purse to my chest from now on. I had my old phone so we went to get a new sims card and they offered us such a deal on a new iPhone 11 if I turned in my old phone, that we decided to get one. It didn’t take too much to convince me but my old phone leaves a lot to be desired. First world problems as they say....

United Eliminates Contract Lounge Benefit For Star Alliance Customers

United has been inviting its business class customers to contract lounges in about 30 cities, and they’ve extended this option to Star Alliance members are well even though they aren’t required to. Now United has mostly eliminated the practice. Except at two airports United no longer invites Star Alliance Gold members (who aren’t flying business class) to use contract lounges. This move (naturally) follows one made a few years ago by Delta. Continue reading United Eliminates Contract Lounge Bene...
