The Very Unglamorous Travel Adventures of Wendy. Aside from something truly catastrophic, everything that could have gone wrong on this trip did. Keep this in mind next time I post pics that show the more fun side of travel. 🙂
A little less than a month ago, I wrote a post pondering the merits of noise-canceling earbuds and whether or not they were worth the hefty price tag. The verdict is in: totally worth it! I recently flew to Amsterdam and tested my new Bose QC20 earbuds. While I still was not able to sleep … Continue reading A Thumbsup for Noise Canceling Earbuds
It's 2016. Time for all airports to just offer free wifi access with no pay gate, no time limit, and no annoying required account setup.
This is a question I've asked myself for a while, but I'll soon find out.

I just got back from my first trans-Atlantic trip, destination Cyprus (well, OK, technically, I got back last week, but we're going to consider that "just"). Where exactly is that, you ask? Why, it's just a hop, skip, and jump across the Atlantic, over the UK and parts of western Europe, and a quick jaunt … Continue reading Adventures in Cyprus: Getting There is Half the Fun?
I've always been pretty much an overpacker. I'm not as bad as some people I know (yes, I know someone who once packed their own hangers and another who needed a whole bag just for her shoes), but I do tend to bring more than I need. I hate the thought of getting somewhere and … Continue reading Traveling Light
Looks like Qantas has come up with a novel idea for airline travel, literally. Coming soon to a Qantas flight near you is a collection of in-flight books deliberately designed to only take as long as the flight lasts to finish reading. No Kindle required. The idea actually came from the Australian airliner's ad agency, … Continue reading Custom-Made Books: The Latest in In-Flight Entertainment?
