    Set this at top of window. Traveling With Love

      Here are ways lovers try to stay emotionally connected while apart.

      Tourist snapshot pictures of my wedding ring

      It's a symbol of what I'm advertising to other women. It's more meaningful that touristy knick-knacks that have no meaning if she iesn't traveling with me.

      Camera cell phones make photos and sharing photos easier.

      Watch movies together
      We would call each other from inside a movie rental place and pick out a film together so we can watch it at the same time. Or Whoever is in the earlier time zone would record a TV program to watch later when we're together at the same time.

      Alternatively, the Slingbox SB100-100 "streams" TV signals from your home TV through the internet to your internet browser.

      A cell phone with unlimited family minutes makes it possible to talk without the "taxicab meter stress". You can see what your honey is watching by installing

      click for 2x size Having street singers sing into a cell phone

      "This is dedicated to Pam"...
      Love letters

      Pictures of the place from a website. If from a different country, a hand-written letter with a stamp.
      Recreate restaurant dishes at home

      It doesn't seem fair that I can sample treats from fancy restaurants around the country.

      Like Marco Polo, if I can't bring an edible souvenier home, maybe I can get the recipe to recreate at home.`

      Daily devotionals
      She reads from a Guidepost book at home. I read it off a websiteanother page on this site
      Comfortable Headsets
      Those stick-it-in-your-ear headphones torture me. I prefer those that fit over the ear, even if they're so fragile that I have to buy a new one every month.

      Share your ideas!

      dolce far niente ("sweet doing nothing" in Italian) describes the pleasure of idleness.

      While traveling, our mind-set changes, our senses are heightened, and passions for new experiences are aroused.

    Set this at top of window. My back-pack (everyday carry)

      Here are my favorite travel things I keep in my backpack:

      Sunglasses with polarized lenses and anti-reflective coating. Some don't like Maui Jims for their glass lenses, claiming that they are not as safe as polycarbonate on Oakleys. Having it in a hard case is essential to keep it from scratching and breaking.

      Small box to keep micro and USB chips for smartphones and cameras. This may be a case for an eyeglass you've lost.

      Cloth to wipe glasses in the eyeglass case.

      Socks. Just one pair rolled up under my laptop provides extra cushioning. It's also a way to get dry again in case rain soaks my shoes.

      Hat. A skullcap that covers the ears can also be cushion under a laptop. You never know when you need it. Such as during a San Francisco Summer. ;) The body loses a lot of its heat through the head.

      Gloves. Again, under my laptop to provide extra cushioning until needed. Many who run in windy weather know the importance of gloves. Many gloves have conductive thread so you don't have to take them off to operate a smartphone.

      Electronic earphones. The ones airlines pass out are pure torture. has a $300 headphone that sends out noise which cancels ambient noise such as stressful drone of jet airplane cabin [23KB]

      Ear plugs - the foam ones are more comfortable, but the silicon ones filter out more noise.

      Blindfold. My wife wears one every night even at home. She likes the kind with padding on the cheekbone. There's nothing like it when you dont want to talk to the people sitting next to you.

      Inflatable pillow.

      Motion Sickness pills. I've found that the regular Dramamine makes me drousy enough. (But this also has made me leave things on the plane). Luckily I don't suffer from this. But I've heard ginger ale soda for air sickness prevention.

      No Jet Lag homeopathic medicine from Miers Labs in Wellington, New Zealand.

      Sleeping pills. I've found that the regular Dramamine makes me drousy enough. (But this also has made me leave things on the plane).

      Hidden body wallet. This keeps pickpockets from slashing holes in our pants or pursues. You don't need to pay a bunch for this. Some conferences provide one.

      Camera. Some keep a throw-away camera with flash handy.  Paste an address label (with phone and email address) on them and wrtie "$20 reward" in case you lose it.

      Flashlight and batteries. I like the kind with a swivel head so you can put on a table. Even better if it's solar rechargeable.

      Water bottle - the kind made of Lexan with a cap. Platypus brand bottles with 3-ply food-grade polyethylene plastic are collapsible and don't "flavor" the water.


      Water purifier. One never knows. Each cartridge in the PUR Hiker MicroFilter can process 200 gallons. Weight and bulk are important. The straw is larger but lighter.

      Electric water heating stick.

      Electrical converter to accomodate old sockets without the ground plug that are common within quaint old B&B's.

      Protein. Snack protein bars or beef jerky keep you going when food isn't conveninent (like on an airplane waiting on the tarmac for 8 hours) or when food from street vendors is too gross to eat.

      Towel. For absorbing big spills. It doubles as a blanket or a towel that dries quickly.

      A fold-up duffle bag. You never know if you'll need to carry some unexpected bootie home. This can be of thin fabric for less weight and bulk.

      zip lock bags in several sizes. You never know if the backpack will get soaked (from rain, office fire, swimming across a river, etc.). A thick plastic one is where I keep my passport, invitation letter for international travel, receipts, etc. Less air in the bag keeps food fresher longer.

      Space blankets. A few ounces which may save your life. I carry two so one can be used as a tent. I put them in a thick zip-lock because it's tough to fold it back tight enough to fit in its original packaging.

      Magnetic compass when I need to conserve the power that GPS sucks from my smartphone.

      Inverter (400W) for keeping my laptop charged. I keep this in a separate bag that I push into my luggage before flights since I don't need it on flights. I've found the analog type to be less fussy than the digital kind.

      Battery Pack to keep USB devices charged. I like the GoalZero solar that charges four AA batteries not because I can buy extra batteries while on the road. The solar part is extra cool even though as a certified geek I'm never outside enough to use the sun.

      Cable saw. Serations in the cable cuts wood as well as a hachet (which I can't bring on flights). It's cheap enough that if TSA notices it, I can say sorry and give it up.

      Satellite phone (I know, I'm dreamin').

      What I don't have any more are:

      • Global Positioning System (GPS) another page on this site receiver (the same technology that made precise bombing and driverless farm equipment possible). I like GPS software on my laptop so that I can plan out my route. "Microsoft Streets and Trips" But it does take several more minutes to set everything up in my car. The laptop software doesn't make you stop your car before fussing with it.
      • Travel Alarm Clock/Photo - the one from Brookstone which lets you put a picture inside the fold-out cover. It also has a sound chip so your loved ones can record a short message.

      Clean Clothing. Keeping to the same color palette means less worry about clashing. Blacks and grays are great because they can be mixed and matched. different ways a few times on a trip. If you have special-occassion clothing, anything that can only be worn once, mail them ahead in a box.

      Bag for dirty Clothing in an air-tight bag so they don't stick up the clean clothes.

      Copy of identification (passport) in a waterproof bag.

      Squeeze Tubes Some drugstores have small "sample" sized products which are ideal to take traveling. This is especially true since the "no more than 3 ounces in a zip lock bag" rule since 2006.

      Shoes. I prefer wearing slip-ons through the airport and on the plane. It's too much pressure to lace up sneakers.

      Spare Chargers. In a waterproof bag.

      Who To Avoid

      Beware of ALL-HOTELS LTD EDINBURGH UK. They charged me a 10% "trip cancellation insurance" that I didn't ask for.

      "Access America" has turned "terms and conditions" into a (money-making - for them) art form. They won't refund 10 days after a policy is issued. So if you discover that you were incorrectly charged when you look at your credit card receipt at the end of the month, too bad for you!

      You then have 90 days to file a claim. This includes THEIR delays in getting back to you. This means you have to hound them to get paid.

      Even after you submit everything to their precise specification, the "adjudicator" can decide to give you nothing. Even a hurricane is not enough of a reason for them

      A few years ago, I got sick after I arrived the night before in the port city but before I got on the cruise ship. So the company gave me a refund for only half the trip, even though the cruise was why I flew.

      My advice: 1) look at your charges every week, and 2) travel insurance is not worth the money and the hassle.

    Better paranoid than sorry in hotels:

    • Avoid first and second floor rooms. Being on the third floor makes it more difficult for criminal entry through a window, yet keeps me within reach of most fire truck ladders.
    • On my way to my room, I try to notice escape routes in case the need to evacuate quickly arises.
    • I carry pen and paper to write down names, phone numbers, room numbers, etc. instead of saying them out loud. Hotel clerks are trained to do this.
    • To avoid scams, I try not to talk out loud about my plans in public areas. Rooms can have very thin walls.
    • Have different stashes of cash so a large roll of cash doesn't attract attention.
    • Don't invite strangers to your room, no matter what they seem.
    • I put my room key in my left back pocket, away from other credit cards to avoid them de-magnatizing each other.
    • I take restaurant checks to the cashier so I can keep my credit card or room key in sight. I try not to leave room keys and credit cards on restaurant or bar tables.
    • There is no item too inexpensive for the hotel safe deposit box. Even a locked suitcase is not secure unattended in a room. A few seconds here can save me from worry and years of regretful memories.
    • After entring a room, I use the door chain or bolt lock.
    • Ensure doors to adjoining rooms and sliding glass doors sare locked.
    • No matter who knocks at the door, I call the hotel operator to send up hotel security before I open the door.
    • The door viewer (peephole) has a wide angle lens.
    • Keeping the room neat helps me to more likely to notice something disturbed or missing.
    • Don't let the door slam. Make sure it's shut securely.

      Leonardo began painting this famous fresco of Jesus Christ surrounded by his disciples in the refectory of the Monastary of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan, Italy in 1495.  It was finished two years later in 1497. Unfortunately being the nature of fresco paintings, it had already started decaying by 1556.

      Day 2: The "Great White Encounter." You and your tour guide will take a small boat to the Great Barrier Reef, where you will be able to dive into the chum-laden water and experience the beauty of the Great White shark.

      Day 3: The Aboriginal "Festival of Spears." You will be the honored guest of a small aboriginal village as they celebrate the subjugation of the aboriginal race by the white man, with free liquor and a special weapons exhibition.

    Set this at top of window. Corporate Travel Policies

      Due to budget constraints, the following corporate policies are announced regarding employees traveling on official business. The policies are effective immediately.


      Hitchhiking in lieu of commercial transporation is strictly encouraged.Luminescent safety vests will be issued to all employees prior to their departure on company business trips. Bus serivce will be another prime method of transportation. Airline tickets will only be authorized for purchase in extreme circumstances, and only the lower fares will be used. If, for example, a meeting is scheduled in Seattle, but a lower fare can be obtained by traveling to Detroit, then travel to Detroit will be substituted for travel to Seattle.


      All employees are encouraged to stay with relatives or friends while on company business. If weather permits, public areas such as parks and parking lots should be used as temporary lodging. Bridges may provide shelter in periods of inclement weather.


      Meals expense are cut to the absolute minimum. It should be noted that some grocery chains provide free samples of promotional items. Entire meals may be obtained in this manner. Travelers should also become familiar with indigenous roots, berries, and other protein sources available enroute to their destination. If restaurants must be utilized, travels should seek places offering "all you can eat" salad bars. This will be especially cost effective for employees traveling together, as a single plate could be used to feed an entire group. Employees are also encouraged to bring their own food while on company business. Cans of tuna, Spam, Pork-N-Beans, etc. can be conveniently consumed at your leisure without the unnecessary bother of heating or other costly preparation.


      Entertainment while traveling is strictly forbidden. If such extravagances are required on customer contracts, the customer should be encouraged to pick up the tab. Such action will save the company money, and will convince the customers that we are concerned about providing a good product, not spending money on useless frivolities.

      The hospitality provided to customers who will visit our facilities should also be tasteful, yet cost effective. In lieu of extravagant dinners, a picnic bench will be provided in the parking lot, next to the dumpster, and a garden hose will be made available so that liquid refreshment can be furnished to our guests.


      All employees are encouraged to employ innovative techniques in our team effort to save corporate dollars. One enterprising individual has suggested that the money raised during airport layover periods could be used to defray travel costs. In support of this idea, "Red Caps" will be issued to all departing employees. Tips can be earned by helping others with their luggage. Also, when you are in a restaurant don't forget to pick up little things like packs of sugar and packaged condiments for our company cafeteria.

    Set screen Road Songs

      What are your favorite songs to play during a road trip?

      1. On the Road Again by Willie Nelson

        On the road again
        Just can't wait to get on the road again.
        The life I love is makin' music with my friends
        And I can't wait to get on the road again

        On the road again
        Goin' places that I've never been
        Seein' things that I may never see again,
        And I can't wait to get on the road again.

        On the road again
        Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway
        We're the best of friends
        Insisting that the world be turnin' our way
        And our way
        Is on the road again
        Just can't wait to get on the road again
        The life I love is makin' music with my friends
        And I can't wait to get on the road again.

        On the road again
        Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway
        We're the best of friends
        Insisting that the world be turnin' our way
        And our way
        Is on the road again.

        Just can't wait to get on the road again
        The life I love is makin' music with my friends
        And I can't wait to get on the road again
        And I can't wait to get on the road again

      2. The Long And Winding Road by The Beatles

        The long and winding road that leads to your door, Will never disappear, I've seen that road before It always leads me here, leads me to your door. The wild and windy night the rain washed away, Has left a pool of tears crying for the day. Why leave me standing here, let me know the way Many times I've been alone and many times I've cried Anyway you'll never know the many ways I've tried, but Still they lead me back to the long and winding road You left me standing here a long, long time ago Don't leave me waiting here, lead me to you door Da, da, da, da--

      3. Goodbye Yellow Brick Road Music by Elton John Lyrics by Bernie Taupin

        When are you gonna come downnn
        When are you going to land?
        I should have stayed on the farm
        I should have listened to my old man

        You know you can't hold me forever
        I didn't sign up with you
        I'm not a present for your friends to open
        This boy's too young to be singing the blues

        So goodbye yellow brick road
        Where the dogs of society howl
        You can't plant me in your penthouse
        I'm going back to my plough

        Back to the howling old owl in the woods
        Hunting the horny back toad
        Oh I've finally decided my future lies
        Beyond the yellow brick road

        What do you think you'll do then
        I bet that'll shoot down your plane
        It'll take you a couple of vodka and tonics
        To set you on your feet again

        Maybe you'll get a replacement
        There's plenty like me to be found
        Mongrels who ain't got a penny
        Sniffing for tidbits like you on the ground

      4. King of the Road by Roger Miller

      5. Ramblin' Man by Allman Brothers Band

      6. Take Me Home, Country Roads by John Denver

      7. I've Been Everywhere by Johnny Cash

      8. Route 66 by Asleep at the Wheel

      9. Eighteen Wheels and a Dozen Roses by Kathy Mattea

      10. This Road by Jars Of Clay

        All heavy laden acquainted with sorrow
        May Christ in our marrow carry us home
        From alabaster come blessings of laughter
        A fragrance of passion and joy from the truth

        Grant the unbroken tears ever flowing
        From hearts of contrition only for You
        May sin never hold true that love never broke through
        For God's mercy holds us and we are His own

        This road that we travel may it be the straight and narrow
        God, give us peace and grace from You, all the day
        Shelter with fire, our voices we raise still higher
        God, give us peace and grace from You, all the day through

    Set screen Traveling With Pets

      If you want to travel with a pet:

    1. Call the airline to verify whether they still allow pets, the maximum size of your pet, the extra charges, and the dimensions of the pet container bag they allow.
      • At AWA it's 14 x 14 x 9, smaller than the 15"x9"x11" on smaller aircraft.
      • Don't fly Southwest, because they only take seeing eye dogs.
    2. Buy the container from Petco, Petsmart, etc.
    3. Pick a route, but don't pay for the reservation yet.
    4. Phone the airline with your itinerary so that they can check if there are still "pet spots" available. There is a limit of 2 pets in coach and 1 in first class.
    5. Pay for your reservation.
    6. Call the airline back to get a confirmation number (like "WGS5PV") for your pet.
    7. Check in at the counter (not at a computer kiosk) so you can pay them the $80 fee (each way).

    Set screen My Favorite Airport Food

      I prefer flying on Delta not because of the airline but because they have their hub in the Atlanta Hartsfield airport — where Paschal's has a concession in the central atrium.

      The skin on the fried chicken there is so crispy that it dared me to leave it on my plate.

      Their peach cobbler is among the best in any restaurant within a state named for its peaches — not too sweet, drenched with the distinct pleasure of real butter, and covered with a topping that stayed crunchy.

      I need to close my eyes with this food around me because its aroma overwhelms me with memories of Thanksgiving dinners cooked and eaten with fearless abandon.

      But their secret recipie is the smiling staff who ladle large portions with a laugh.

      Eaten before an afternoon flight, the temporary food coma from their sauce-drenched steak turn my flights into escapes from reality.

      Note: I have not found the same recipe at the other concessions within concourse.
