Mancation - A Man's Vacation in Maine

Landing in Portland, Maine, I quickly stopped wondering if this would be another shopping and stuff-your-face vacation. I was happy to note boats, sloughs, masts, traps, seafood signs, varnished wooden spars, and sea smells…back in my personal natural element on the Maine coast. …

Wine Trippin’ In Rockland, Maine

I am always on the lookout for unique up-and-coming wine regions that present an interesting story and a 2-7 day destination of food, wine, and fun. For heaven sakes, there must be a wine-life beyond Napa and Sonoma, and the Champagne region of France. Been there done that. So begins my search for fun, funky, deserving-of-press wine regions through the Wine Trippin’ series. First stop – the mid-coast wineries near Rockland, Maine.

Rockland can be a challenge to get to, but that…

Strawberry Rhubarb Wine at Massachusetts' Russell Orchards

Fruit Wine Selection at Russell Orchards

If you’re headed up Argilla Road north of downtown Ispwich, you’ll get the distinct feeling that you’re heading into more remote surroundings of rolling farm fields, and wooded glens. One pastoral gem that you simply can’t miss is Russell Orchards. Only about 5 minutes from Crane Beach, you’ll see a wood shaked barn to your right and once inside, it’s apparent that this is the real deal…not some knock off built within the…

Step Up Your Act, BA Cabin Crew

Just arrived back in UK from six weeks in Oz visiting our daughter & her newborn baby.
All previous trips have been Singapore Airlines or Emirates and cabin crew have been really good.
This time flew Qantas and the cabin crew were good but first leg out to Singapore was a British Airways flight and cabin crew all disappeared after serving the meal and seemed quite disinterested.
Get your act together BA cabin staff!
You might think you're good. You're not!
