A quick Travel Throwback post today! Facebook has been reminding me every day for the last week or so about the memories of being in India as it shows me posts from my trip there three years ago. As a refresher, I went to Bangalore for a two-week work trip, but being me, I made […]

I’m back in Paris! Only very briefly though, so I’m writing this post from yet another plane. I just had an uneventful yet comfortable 10-hour flight from Bangalore, marred only by the fact that the plane sat on the ground for 30 minutes after we landed because another plane was at our gate. Of course, […]

Hot. Humid. Amazing views. These all describe my experience in Agra, India, where I went to visit the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort. To start this whirlwind journey (I was only gone for 24 hours), I caught a flight on AirAsia to Delhi. Not having been to Asia before, I’d never used them, but […]

Yes, I did make it to Mysore! Granted, I made it there a few days ago and I’m just now getting around to writing about it, but it’s crazy how quickly the time is flying by on this trip. Of course, time always passes more quickly on trips, but this one has a bit odd […]

Another day in India! And this one didn’t involve arriving very late (or very early, depending on your point of view) or getting up for work, which was a welcome relief after yesterday. My very nice driver, Chandra, offered to take me around to a few local sights today, which was great because, although I’m […]

It’s the end of my first day in Bangalore and before I fall asleep (for what will hopefully be an amazingly restful night of slumber), let me catch you up. As you learned in my last post, my flight from Paris to Bangalore was delayed, to the tune of THREE HOURS. Ugh. Definitely not ideal, […]

I shouldn’t be able to write this post right now, but my flight to Bangalore is now approaching a two-hour delay, so why not update the blog? 🙂 On the positive side, the flight to Paris was just fine, though I didn’t really sleep much. I was laying down for a good 3-4 hours, but […]

The time has come – I’m on my way to India! Well, I’m on my way there via Paris and I’ve just boarded my flight in Minneapolis, so I’ve got a solid 17-18 hours of flying time to look forward to yet. But hey, at least business class makes it comfy! Leg room for dayyyyyys. […]

My oh my, how time flies! Clearly I’ve been neglecting my blogging duties of late, but if it makes you feel better (or if it makes me feel better), I haven’t really had much going on in the travel world since my last post. Aside from my annual trip to Los Angeles for Gallifrey One […]
