The Morning Shave

What Happens When Your Bag Misses Your Flight? – I try to avoid checking bags whenever possible.  At least SAS reimbursed us for the purchase of some clothes on our flight to Stockholm when our bag arrived 24 hours later.


That sinking feeling when you realize you made it, but your bag didn’t.


The Most Dangerous Countries in the World for U.S. Travelers. – There are some places I have no interest in visiting due to the danger posed there for Americans, but other places have a bad reputation unnecessarily.  Mexico, for instance, is “dangerous”… primarily for people doing stupid stuff and not following common sense.

So When Did Travel Become A Bad Thing? – There will always be some new fear that people will use to avoid traveling.  Remember “bird flu”?  Travel and explore the world… you’ll be a better person for it.

How we prepared to live on one income. – Congrats to this couple for finding the best solution for their family.  We’re on a similar path, but it will take longer.

Alaska Airlines “Free” Companion Ticket Credit Card Bonus Offer Coming May 1. – Time to get a new Alaska card!
