#SahaleInspired on the Road

I don’t think it was an accident that my first experiences with Sahale Snacks were at the airport. It was writing on the wall that I would one day become a brand ambassador! I used to pick them up with a bottle of water (or coconut water if I was lucky) for my flight. While airline food has come a long way, it still has miles to go. Most of the time the snacks leave something to be desired. … [Read more...]

Visiting Tucson – Pima Air & Space Museum

From the moment we arrived at our RV prep spot in Arizona we had the constant distraction of jet fighters from Luke Air Force base, home of the F-16 Fighting Falcon training facility. All day and into the evening the jets could be seen and heard doing their maneuvers. It was kind of cool. A few years back when visiting Tombstone, we passed an airplane boneyard off the I-10 freeway and Mr. … [Read more...]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #218 – Hawaiian Airlines’ 85th Anniversary

Next Tuesday is Hawaiian Airlines' 85th Anniversary! They are the second oldest U.S. airlines and in my opinion, one of the best! I had the pleasure of flying with Hawaiian Airlines for my trips in March and September and cannot say enough good things about them (although I have tried!). I normally don't post infographics (I leave that to my blogging pal Jennifer who always posts fascinating … [Read more...]

Misadventures in getting to Italy

Even veteran travelers can have really bad travel days. Mr. Misadventures and I must have been due... It started when I hung up on the Alitalia agent at the call center. I rarely lose my temper, that Andi I left in the dust more than a dozen years ago. In the process of trying to check-in online and make sure our luggage would go all the way to Florence from San Francisco, Mr. … [Read more...]

Travel Tip Thursday – Airplane Health Tips

I have been on a lot of airplanes recently. A lot. So I thought I would share a few tips for trying to stay healthy while being trapped in one of these germs tubes. That way you may actually enjoy your destination when you get there! Bring sanitizing wipes and use them. I always have a pack of these in whatever bag I am carrying around.  Most of the time it is to clean myself off after enjoying … [Read more...]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #150: Chevrolet Airplane

While visiting the Valley of Fire State Park we stopped at the Visitor's Center where they were having a car show.  Nothing like being out on black asphalt in the middle of the desert in a metal box, but hey these guys will do anything to show off their babies! We stopped to take photos and buy extra bottles of ice cold water sold by a local Boy Scouts troop - never so happy to see Walmart water, … [Read more...]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #140: First Commercial American International Flight

You could walk right by this sign in Key West and miss it, unless you are a fan of signs like I am.  And when you are talking about an travel first, it is even all the more interesting. Key West is steeped in history and this sign describes only one of many firsts that this little city can claim.  I love how the palm trees drape the sign, it looks so tropical, like you might stumble upon it coming … [Read more...]

Saturday Six #68

Happy Saturday everyone!  I don't know about you but my week was packed!  Check out my week in photos post tomorrow to see exactly what I was up to! This being the week of Bastille Day I have several frenchie selections, although being the francophile that I am, I don't need the excuse of a national holiday to share some of my favorite frenchie-friend posts! [1] My pal Lindsey of Lost in … [Read more...]

Travel Tip Tuesday – "Free" Airplane Sitter

This tip comes from Lisa Dearen of The Gonzo Gourmet who I sat with at lunch while at the SITS Bloggy Bootcamp in San Diego over the weekend. Not having kids I would have never thought of this one on my own and I think it is brilliant so I had to share! Lisa told me that when she is traveling alone with her daughter she looks for an unaccompanied minor to sit next to.  The majority of the time … [Read more...]
