California camping [3]

After our chilly night in the tent, we spent the next night in a motel. That next day we visited the ghost town of Bodie, then saw Mono Lake, but not for the first time. I can't remember if we spent a second night in the motel, but we must have. The good ol' Jeep at our Furnace Creek campsite in Death Valley, California, 2002. Our next destination was the Furnace Creek campground in Death Valley. We had been there once before and wanted to go back. We had no problems with cold there. It was ho...

Where to volunteer in NYC

In the words of Chidi Anagonye from The Good Place — though actually posed by philosopher T.M. Scanlon — what do we owe to each other? We’re all here together, so we should probably work together to make things better. Volunteering can help us do exactly that, and it does a wealth of good for everyone, including those being helped, the world around us, and ourselves. New York City has its fair share of problems, but it also has a number of places willing to address them. Finding somewhere to ...

Norwegian Air plane in Iran

On December 14 , a technical error forced a Norwegian Air jet to make an emergency landing in Tehran, Iran, and over a month later it’s still sitting there. The flight had left Dubai en route to Oslo when it began experiencing a technical error in one of the engines, forcing it to land safely in Tehran’s Shiraz Airport, with 186 passengers and six crew members. Luckily, the passengers and crew were able to leave on a flight to Oslo the next day, but for the aircraft, however, it wasn’t so simp...

Norwegian liquor travels the world

People have different definitions of what it means to be well-traveled. For some, it means a big portion of your time is spent exploring new places. To others, it simply means racking up passport stamps. Every drop of Linie Aquavit, a spirit from Norway, is well-traveled regardless of how you define it. In fact, all of the Linie sold since 1821 has seen more of the world than the vast majority of humans. Before being bottled, Linie is aged in 500-liter barrels that previously held Oloroso she...

10 Top Areas for Sledding and Tubing in Washington for Families

10 Top Areas for Sledding and Tubing in Washington Are you someone who loves winter & all of the activities in the snow? Spring & summer are definitely my favorite seasons in the Northwest, but I love to try out all the fun snow sports every winter with my family. We are so fortunate here in the western parts of the Northwest to be so close to the mountains, yet thankfully we have mainly mild temperatures in most locations. So, we don’t have to deal with driving in the snow unless we want t...

Peace, Love, and Avocado for All

San Francisco is home to the original hippie, the flower child borne of the 1967 Summer of Love, though only faint traces of the counter culture movement remain today. Largely replaced by tech workers with smartphones in their pockets rather than floral ornaments in their hair, it disappoints me to no end that we don’t even have an outpost of Flower Child out in the bay area. Had it not been for a trip out to Austin, TX, I never would have even known of the peaceable chain. During my whirlwind f...

HSMAI Special Award to Norwegian CEO Bjørn Kjos

Not many have avoided noticing the mark Norwegian Air Shuttle - Norwegian for short - CEO, founder and majority owner Bjørn Kjos has left on Norway's aviation, travel and hospitality industry in the years following the airline's launch 26 years ago, in a marketplace characterized by far more expensive flight fares. His importance for the industry is almost unrivaled, making international headlines for aviation "made in Norway". It should come as no surprises, then, that HSMAI decided to m...

Travel: Largest cruise ship ever to be based year-round in Southern California coming to Long Beach

Come December, Southern California cruisers will say “ahoy” to the new 4,000-passenger Carnival Panorama, currently being built at the same Italian shipyard where the ship it’s replacing, the 3,100-passenger Carnival Splendor, was constructed a decade ago. Just months away from a sea test at the Fincantieri shipyard near Venice, Italy, the Panorama is the third vessel in Carnival’s Vista Class, following the 2-year-old Carnival Vista and 9-month-old Carnival Horizon.

Rambo III

Re-watching this, I will say that it wasn’t as enjoyable as I remembered it being. I think First Blood Part II is still quite decent as an 80s actioner, but here we start seeing Rambo make quips, which feels too out-of-character to be enjoyable. Don’t get me wrong, there’s still fun to be had, with the ridiculous “let’s fight the Russian army” storyline, but this does end up being the weakest film in the series (I liked the 4th Rambo film more). I will say that I am looking forward to seeing th...

US cities with the most coffee shops

When it comes to a city’s coffee options, more is always better than fewer. Because while you can count on a Starbucks on every corner, you can also count on the worn-out playlist of the same coffee every time.

California’s foie gras ban upheld

One of the country’s most contentious legal battles has been swirling around a subject you might not have expected. Since 2012, California has been enforcing a 2004 ban on the sale and production of foie gras — a French delicacy whose method of production animal rights groups consider inhumane. Chefs and trade groups in the state have been fighting against the ban, which was just upheld once again on Monday. If you’ve never had it before, foie gras (which means “fatty liver”) is large, butte...

Travel: No ship of fools for these cruise performers

Garry Carson has heard it thousands of times from cruise passengers before showtime: “I don’t like magic, but let’s see if the guy is any good.” Some entertainers would have bruised egos overhearing such comments, especially on a crowded elevator ride to the deck of the theater. But after 500-plus cruises over 22 years, the seafaring magician knows the life of taking an act on the road where there are no roads. “These people aren’t there because they love or even like magic,” said Carson, pointi...

Why You Should Get Travel Insurance When You Travel

I’ve talked about how to find the right policy, discussed why , and answered a few of the most common questions on the subject.

Why should you buy travel insurance? Why is it important? What’s in it for you? Peace of mind. And the potent...

How to visit Museum of the Dog

New York City has some of the best museums, but it was lacking a very important one: a museum dedicated entirely to dogs. On February 8, however, the American Kennel Club’s Museum of the Dog is opening its doors at 101 Park Avenue, and it’s a dog lover’s dream. The museum first opened in New York in 1982 on Madison Avenue, then moved to Missouri. Now, it’s coming back home. It will be home to several hundred paintings, drawings, watercolors, prints, sculptures, bronzes, and porcelain figurin...

Best things about Indianapolis

In a sea of cornfields and conservatism, Indiana’s bustling capital of Indianapolis is an island. From the independent art galleries on Mass Ave. to the vintage boutiques in Fountain Square, Indy has steadily been making a name for itself one of the Midwest’s preeminent cultural hubs. Sure, it’s no Chicago — but that’s a good thing if you hate crowds. For now, it’s one of the best-kept secrets south of the Great Lakes. But no one is quite sure how much longer the city can fly under the radar...

Peneda-Gerês is the only national park in Portugal. And it’s incredible.

Peneda-Gerês is the single greatest national park in Portugal. It wins on a technicality, being that it’s the country’s only national park. But there’s a certain magic to the mountains and valleys of northern Portugal where Peneda-Gerês lies, snuggled up against Spain, that makes calling it the greatest feel apt nonetheless. Gerês, as it’s known locally, spans roughly 270 square miles of oak and pine forests, granite cliffs, peat bogs, marshes, rivers, and lagoons between the Castro Laboreiro...

Understanding the Importance and Use of The Reserve for Capital Replacement | By David Lund

The concept for the use of the reserve account is important to understand. It is also essential that hotel operators ensure the reserve is properly funded per the terms of the Hotel Management Agreement "HMA." The use of the reserve is an important tool to utilize to protect the operator's rights and long-term viability. Many people mistakenly think the reserve account is the owner's responsibility and therefore it's up to the owner to determine and ultimately control the funding. But not...

The careless days of ordering anything on the menu are far behind you after realizing that if you and a nut were in the ring, you’d lose.
