Why I fell in love with New York

By Samuel P.N. Cook

When I tell people that I own a tour company in New York City, the first question I get is, “So you are from New York?” I have to then explain to them that no, I actually just moved to New York a year and a half ago, and I started my business shortly after that.

Travel Tips for Road Warriors--and Hoteliers

I had a dream that it was already the end of 2010 and I was looking back at my year of travel. What I saw in my dream was a year where the travel industry really focused on female travelers.

I can feel the thick shampoo in my hair, the luxurious towels, a scent of lavender emanating from my plush pillow. I am healthier and fitter than I’ve ever been thanks to the Pilates and Yoga classes offered by hotels and the nutritional food enjoyed from hotel restaurants and mini-bars. I… Continue

On the basis that First and Business class are the minority of the passengers on an airpline, I am fed up with the rest categorised as 'economy' or 'coach'. A more acceptable label for me is 'Standard class'. Airlines seem to be the only mode of transport where this type of segmentation occurs. Sorry about the rant.
