Modern air travel is mess. Nothing is easy.

I used to like flying, but haven't liked it for a long time. We need to develop transporter systems like are used in Star Trek.

If you take a close look at how this technology might actually work, it gets really creepy.

re: i am back

Sounds like Phil and I would get along very well. We have a pool with lanai outback, heavy sub-tropical plantings, and a lake, and people wonder why I don't want to go anywhere!

re: i am back

The older I get, the more I like to stay put. Really I'm quite content to sit at home and mess about with my hobbies, and frankly, don't have near enough as much time for them as I would like. I did plenty of traveling the world when I was younger, so I guess I got it out of my system!

Having been in Amsterdam a time or two, I can assure you there is more fun to be had than watching Americans lined up in front of a KFC!

re: i am back

When I travel away from home, I have a rule that I do not eat at places where I could eat at home. I prefer to sample local eateries, and love to chat with local owners of small restaurants. You learn so much about the people in other places by doing that. Isn't that what traveling is all about? Learning and experiencing things you can't at home?
