Status has its perks. Throughout history, royalty had it better than the peasants. Celebrities and Presidents gets perks over the middle class. And now, business and wealthy travelers get perks above what many travelers even know exist.
Our world is changing so rapidly today. Have you ever thought that maybe you’d like to escape this high-tech, fast-paced, government controlled world that we live in today? I sure have. I have even gone so far as to consider removing myself from “the grid” entirely. In other words, I have considered what it would […]
I arrived at PDX for a trip to Santa Barbara around 5:00pm on a Friday afternoon. I had just grappled with an hour drive from my office south of Portland in rush-hour traffic to get to the airport, on the city’s northern border with Washington.
