Traveling to the South of France and the French Riviera in springtime always sounded like a marvelous vacation to me! In spring of 2022, James scored last-minute tickets to the Monaco Grand Prix Formula 1 qualifying race (the actual race was sold out unfortunately) so we were able to make that vacation dream a reality!...

Lounge Review: Air France Lounge Paris CDG: Terminal 2E-Hall M (Non-Schengen)
Air France lounges in CDG are consistently good. In the US they are not anything special, but at their home airport in Paris, I really enjoy the experience.

Travel Guide: Delta One vs Premium Select. What is the difference between business class and premium economy?
I recently had the chance to check out Delta's Premium Select product on their 767-400 when flying between Paris and Atlanta.

Travel Guide: Flight Review: Air France A350 vs 777 Business Class. What Air France Plane has the better Business Class.

Finland in November: 2-Night Vacation Itinerary
As part of our 2021 Thanksgiving-time vacation, we spent 7 nights wandering around Italy and then took a short flight over to Helsinki, Finland.

Northern Italy in November: 7-Night Vacation Itinerary
For our typical Thanksgiving week trip (that we have done for many years but unfortunately missed in 2020 for obvious reasons...), we were balancing being able to do *something* due to the 2021 fall/winter covid wave breaking out in Europe, and the fact that Europe in the fall/winter is typically filled with indoor activities. We... Continue Reading →
