Happy Wednesday to all of our travel friends, both near and far! Here are some articles we’ve read from other bloggers (and other sources) that we think you may like, as well, so we’re passing them along.
Traveling is an adventure and you never know who or what you’re going to see or experience. People joining the Mile High Club while in their seats on the plane. A concert on your plane. Getting a totally unexpected upgrade on your flight.
So when you arrive at the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse in London Heathrow and James Corden is there to greet you, serve you drinks, make announcements, and a whole bunch more, you know it’s going to be an adventure. Take a look…

So I just jumped in and corrected him. I was embarrassed and so was he. My need to be correct didn’t help anyone, except maybe the other guests who now had correct information.

If you’ve read this travel blog for any length of time, you may notice that we try to do things “our way.” That’s simply because this blog is really an extension of us. Joe will write about points and miles because he’s into that and I will often write about “human interest” travel stuff because that’s what I like (and yeah, the weirder the better).
