Karim Rashid Detained at JFK

This boils my blood to read, probably because I am biased. I'll explain my bias first. Before he was famous, Karim Rashid was my professor at Pratt Institute. He had a slight foreign accent—a Canadian one, as that's where he was raised. When I first saw his name printed on my schedule I assumed it was pronounced "Ka-REEM," but then learned it was pronounced like "Karen" with an "m" on the end instead of an "n." That was the extent of what was "foreign" about Karim, and then he simply became the ...

At first, the new and utterly nonsensical ban on any electronics bigger than a phone on some flights seemed like it was something most of us would happily avoid. But by essentially including all flights from Dubai to the US (ie Emirates), from Abu Dhabi (ie Etihad flights) and Istanbul (ie Turkish Airlines) it has shifted from something that might only inconvenience ‘other people’ and now threatens all of us who might b...

6 Random Things That Make me Happy When I Travel

On a personal level, it’s been a tough few weeks for me. Lately it seems that nothing goes quite right and I’ve been stuck in neutral, unsure of where to go next.
