Hot Air Ballooning – Las Vegas

  People have flown in hot air balloons ever since the late 1700's and it's something that I have always wanted to do.  Unlike flying in an airplane, there is something unique about a balloon flight because you get a 360 degree view of everything around you.  Another characteristic that makes it really special is how quiet it can be.  You are just floating in the air and it's actually a very calming experience.     Vegas Balloon Rides offers exceptional sunrise flights … [Read More]

Showering in the Dark – Paris, France

  Have you ever stayed at a hotel that required putting your room key card into a slot to turn on the electricity?  I remember the first time that I did.  I was 22 years old and on a layover in Paris, France.  Having just worked the red-eye from Washington DC, I was exhausted and all I wanted was a hot shower and a bed.   Upon entering the room, I noticed that the lights didn't work, the TV didn't work, anything that required power, did not work!  I thought about going back … [Read More]
