Not long ago, we heard about a product that sounded really cool – Soarigami could be attached to an armrest on a plane, in a theater, in a stadium, etc., and turn a single armrest into a double one. What a convenient little gadget, huh? Soarigami sounded impressive enough that I bought one and we’ve just had our first experience with it. Here’s what we thought of it.
The TSA admittedly doesn’t have the best reputation in the world. People complain of long delays, being yelled at, “TSA approved” locks being broken on checked luggage, contents in checked luggage being messed up or gone missing, and even being “felt up” when frisked.
We even posted an article about where to complain if you have a problem with the TSA (or any major airline, for that matter).
Sometimes though, you have to take chance and make sure the TSA knows how important the contents of your luggage are, even if said contents may appear to be a little…extreme? Such was the recent case of a Florida playwright named Michael Presley Bobbit.
Sharon and I make no secret about our love for Broadway and, in particular, our love for Broadway musicals. Most of the current shows seem to be based on movies or around the songs of a famous musician. Coming up with an original idea isn’t easy and there’s no safety net of a built-in audience. So when someone pitched a musical about events that happened during 9/11, I’d imagine the initial response wasn’t very positive. But that’s exactly what the show “Come From Away” is about. And believe it or not, it’s one of the most endearing, uplifting and inspiring things I’ve seen in quite a while. The fact that the story is based around aviation didn’t hurt my investment level in the show any, either.
Everyone who was alive that day has a story of what they were doing. Knowing the audience of this website, I’d imagine there were a few of you who were flying or due to fly that day. “Come From Away” is based on the stories of people who were just in that situation, flying on a plane when the events of 9/11 happened.
Happy Sunday 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.
There’s nothing quite like live theater and if you’re going to see live theater in the U.S., Broadway is “the” place to go.
Unfortunately, ticket prices for Broadway shows have been going higher and higher. There are a few ways to get tickets cheaper (we go over them in this post and this one, too), but there’s also this way, which is only available for a short time…
