A message from the President
I often wonder how many of us wake up in the mornings, look in the mirror, and wish they were somewhere else doing something totally off the wall and having the time of their lives doing it!
When reality sets in, as you just about cut your throat with a razor while shaving, well, that’s generally where it all comes to an abrupt halt, and you finish getting ready for another day on the job, or prepping for whatever we normally fill our days doing.
As usual, the other morning, some 6 weeks ago or so, that’s exactly what happened to me for about the 100th or so go around, only I found myself doing something about it this time.
I decided then and there on a trip around the world!
We’re not talking a mega outlay of a trip here, but one on the cheap, if possible, with a fair number of stops and experiences built it for good measure.
Within days, the plan was hatched, frequent flyer miles were dedicated (by the way, British Air has some of the best FF miles deals out there today, and when tied to the points from a Diners Club account, it’s a win/win deal!), and the itinerary was incredible. Chicago….Seattle….Seoul….(with a possible side stop in the Philippines)….New Delhi….Kathmandu….London….Chicago!
