Airport executive clubs are the worst

Airport executive clubs are the worst

I guess I just don't get it. Why is access to airport executive clubs so coveted, everyone think they are so great, and rush to them the second they arrive at the airport? You see them sneaking in with their black carry-on bags and laptop messengers, flashing their...

Twenty Four Hours in Travel Hell

6:00am (10:00pm DT or Denver Time) We wake up in the Aklesia B&B in the Colosseum district of Rome to the sound of the iPhone alarm going off on the side of the bed.  Snooze?  Nah.  Gotta get up, shower and hit the Metro station.  I reach in to my backpack to find the...

Save money on wine without sacrificing quality

Remember that time when your friend brought over that $500 bottle of Chateau Margaux to share? Yeah, me neither. See, I only have two types of friends - the ones that drink moderately priced, good quality wines, and the imaginary ones. Read more at WineGeographic.com...

The thing about organic wines

I guess it all started with the strip search at San Francisco International Airport. The scanners going through security picked up a microbe or something on me, even though I had followed every rule including taking my shoes and belt off. Maybe it was the gum I was...

If you can’t be with the wine you love, honey, love the wine you’re with.

Maybe it’s a Stephen Stills thing. You know the song, right? “If you can’t be with the wine you love honey, love the wine you’re with...love the wine you’re with.” That is how that song goes, isn’t it? Well, it should. Keep that song in the front of your mind as you...

Thanksgiving Appetizers and Wine Pairings

[jumbotron heading="Appetizers are the secret to any well-organized meal, and Thanksgiving is no different."]Naturally, we tend to focus on the size of the turkey, the mashing of the potatoes and the mixing of the canned green beans, cream of mushroom soup and those...

Travel Blog – Travel is Work

Travel can sometimes feel like work. Vacation isn’t work, but travel sometimes can be. And it can be stressful and straining. Vacations are about relaxing and sitting, playing golf or tennis or maybe swimming in the ocean or sunning yourself on the beach. Travel...

Italian Wine In California

Why would anyone in the Napa Valley grow anything other than Cabernet Sauvignon? It’s a solid question. Napa is one of the great Cabernet producers in the world...maybe the greatest. Farmers get nearly $6,000 per ton of Napa Cabernet grapes, twice that of, say,...

Pay by the pound – The only way to truly fix air travel

Let’s be blunt. Airlines should charge by the pound. Yeah, I said it. Pay by the pound is the only way to truly fix the airline industry. UPS does it. FedEx does it. DHL does it. They make money. Why not the airline industry? When it comes down to it, airline...

Minimalists’ guide to collecting wine

Minimalists’ guide to collecting wine

Sorry, but for a post about minimalism, this is going to be surprisingly long… I’ve been working on this minimalism thing for a while now. You know, simplify – own less and make sure your possessions don’t own you? It seemed easy and exciting at first, and has been a...

My new theory on the popularity of pro football

I have a new theory about professional football. I think the popularity of NFL football is now being completely supported by the gambling trends of weekly and yearly Fantasy Football leagues. It's a new theory, and I'm just developing it now, but it feel right....

Paris Café Culture

Paris Café Culture

A not-so wise man once said, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop to look around for a while, you could miss it.” Nowhere is that advice more needed than here in America. Nowhere is that advice more honored than in Paris. Originally posted on WineGeographic.com...

Finally a real wine rating system

Finally a real wine rating system

The thing I hate most about wine ratings is the thing that makes them what they are. Wine ratings are subjective. They are one person’s judgement of quality and don’t take into account what really matters – how much you drink, what you can afford, when to drink them,...
