I arrived in a quaint village in the French countryside and checked into a charming villa arranged by my travel agent.
Once I was settled, I made my way out to the balcony. It seemed to be floating on the beautiful fields of lavender and provided a scope of a wide expanse of vineyards in the distance.
I had already decided that all I wanted to do on this vacation was spend my mornings at a local café…

Do you remember going on family vacations when you were a kid?
It's funny how I can't remember where I put my keys or my phone or what I was supposed to pick up at the store (so when I arrive, I just stand…

It had been a year since our last vacation. My mother’s condition had worsened ever since she began her stay in a long term healthcare facility.
My father who was home at the time of her fall said it happened quickly. She was in the shower and he heard a bang. He rushed in to find her lying on her side. She had broken her hip and that was the beginning of the…

I love my husband and we are truly best friends but when we get into one of our arguments about something meaningless in a “drive me crazy” kind of way; I need to head for the hills.
Let me clarify:
I need a “Marriage Travel Time…

Flight delays are frustrating and time consuming. They send stranded passengers on a mad cycle of phone calls, emails, texts, Facebook messages, overpriced bottled water, lots of Starbucks and Auntie Annie's salty pretzels.

Long flights can be rather unpleasant for us Corporate Road Warriors.
Sure you plan to catch up on your sleep and read that book you never finished but there are so many distractions like people talking loudly. It’s always one or two people on the whole plane (first class or economy – there is always one in the crowd) who start up these conversations with anyone who will listen. All you have to…
So I was watching 60 Minutes or was it Dateline or was it 20/20 or Anderson Cooper 360 or are they all really one show about slightly different views on the same stories?
Yeah so it was about the London Olympics and how the city has informed the Taxi Drivers that they will be limited in terms of their routes and where…
So you are finally on vacation. You left the office. Your automated email is in full swing. Your voice mail informs callers to dial reception or the poor soul who is left with your calls while you are away.
You’ve packed the car. You still aren’t’ sure if you brought enough clothes for the hot days or the cooler nights. You know you forgot something but can’t remember what. You couldn’t decide whether to wear your flip flops in the car or your running shoes so you took both.…
What would life be without coffee? Well, I assume it would be quite awful.
Thursday nights are the 70s version of Saturday nights (not based on any factual information but just go with it).
Thursday nights rule because who isn’t excited for Friday and what better week night to stay out just a little later enjoying good times with friends and new friends and people in general?
It’s the one week night you don’t feel as pressured to go to bed early because there is…

Who doesn’t love an airline lounge when you have time on your hands and you need space from the swarms of people flocking around those tiny connected chairs in an airless waiting area of a gate?
Corporate road warriors - Let us Unite and pay tribute to the holy "lounge."
Those relaxing open spaces with giant TVs, cocktails (virgin and otherwise) and that great “hotel lobby” smell.
