Getting Geared Up for TBEX in Vancouver

Date: May 26th, 2011 | No Comments

I’m not one to turn down an opportunity to travel, whether it’s for work or otherwise, and I’ve found fun things to do in places that didn’t seem all that exciting – but when a conference I know I’ll be going to gets scheduled for an exceptionally cool city like Vancouver, BC, I’m even happier.

I love Milan. Don’t go to Milan.

Date: November 3rd, 2010 | No Comments

I’ve just returned from a three-week trip to Italy, two weeks of which was spent exploring places I’d either never been or hadn’t spent much time in. Despite predominantly rainy weather, I loved walking around the cobbled streets of historic Palermo and watching the sun set on the Amalfi hills. I ate more than my [...]

I’ll be at BlogWorld Expo in Vegas next month, will you?

Date: September 22nd, 2009 | 1 comment

If you’ve been paying attention to this blog, you may remember my recent posts about how I’m not the biggest Las Vegas fan in the world – and then how I found out I was speaking at a conference in (of course) Las Vegas. What I failed to mention then was details about the conference. [...]

It feels like only yesterday I was packing up and returning back home after spending a month house-sitting for a friend in Milan… And yet here I am back again, subjecting myself to the torture that is Milan in August, so that I could sign a few papers and add to my Italian red tape [...]

Las Vegas: Focusing on the Positive

Date: July 24th, 2009 | 1 comment

A few weeks ago I made a mistake on this blog. I expressed gratitude to the Travel Gods that I, for the various work-related conferences I’ve attended, hadn’t been asked to go to Las Vegas. See, I’ve been to Sin City before, but it’s really not my thing. I don’t like gambling, I can’t handle [...]

Moving to Italy: So Close, but So Far

Date: July 8th, 2009 | 7 comments

As some of you know, I spent a month in Italy not long ago. And if you’ve been following along for awhile, you’ll also know that I spent six weeks in Italy last Spring. Nearly every time I get my hands on an airplane ticket it’s got “Italy” as the destination. Since I’m the author [...]

Turning Online Friends into Real-Life Friends

Not that long ago, my mother still looked at me with a deer-in-headlights look when I said the word “blog.” She knew I was working for a web company, and she knew what the internet and email were, but blogs were just something she’d heard someone mention on NPR – she didn’t actually know what [...]

How Working in the Travel Business Changed How I Travel

Date: May 12th, 2009 | 3 comments

Whenever those of us at BootsnAll tell people what we do for a living, one of the first questions we get is, “Ooh, do you get to travel all the time?” It’s one of those questions where no matter how you answer it you’re kind of screwed. If we say, “Why, yes, we travel all [...]
