If you do not have a membership or credit card that gives you access to the VIP Lounges, when this is all over, do get one, even if you travel only occasionally. They are clean, comfortable, and most relaxing.
But the VIP Lounge I am referring to is a column in the Sunday Boston Globe. A celebrity is interviewed about their travel preferences. Of course, I read it each weekend. I like to rethink my travel wishes. Maybe you will too! Questions like Favorite destination, (Florence), Favorite food or drink while vacationing, (pasta and a Nebbiolo), and Aisle or window (aisle). What are your preferences?
But my favorite is Where would you like to travel but haven’t? Often the answer is someplace I have traveled but then I get to get my own answer. For now, when we can/may travel again I would like to find a friend or two and experience Sicily. I planned the trip years ago, but then could not go. I often imagine that trip. Want to join me?
Another question ‘one item you can’t leave home without when you’re traveling? Most of you will respond with electronic items, me none of them. But I cannot imagine being without a book.
Guilty pleasure when traveling? Truth be told, I have two and often arrange both prior to leaving home. I like a massage right away to get rid of all those airplane aches, sometime a pool will do. This gets me into a holiday mood! My greatest pleasure is a Michelin star restaurant. An elegantly delicious meal served in a foreign place is my idea of a great holiday.
Lastly, Best travel tip. Make plans. You may have lots of ideas, knowing the details is most important. Then make space for spontaneity, life happens while you are living it. Let the journey be your guide.
