If She Wants A Unicorn, It’s My Job to Make It Happen (a.k.a. “Our” Travel Bucket List)

Disclaimer: I love my wife very much. So much so that I asked and was given her permission to write this post (Note from Sharon: Yes, dear).

I find myself amazingly lucky that Sharon and I agree on so many things. One of them is we don’t need to heap presents on each other to show our love and affection. That notwithstanding, there are some occasions when Sharon wants a particular item and it’s my job to acquire it. While it may be a larger item or one that might take some time to find, it’s never been impossible (yet), and I enjoy the challenge and the pleasure when I deliver.

Besides that, I had absolutely zero interest in crediting flights to or redeeming awards with Qantas’ Frequent Flyer program.

I’ve Heard Of Gifts For Fellow Passengers When A Crying Baby’s On A Plane But This Is Ridiculous!

I think we’ve all heard about people who bring babies onto planes and, anticipating the (s)he’s going to cry, offering gifts of ear plugs and other stuff like candy for fellow passengers, along with a cute little note that explains it’s the baby’s first flight, (s)he might cry, please forgive him/her, etc. However this family has taken apologies to a whole new level…
