Whatchamacallit 130: ANA Folding Fan

When I went to Japan, to Hiroshima, for the first time, back in 2013, I made a point of flying ANA, All Nippon Airways, there. At the time, they flew the 787 from Frankfurt to Tokyo Handea. I came back on Swiss via Toyko Narita.

I think the number of times that I have […]

Whatchamacallit 4: Northwest Airlines Mug

Growing up in Denver, Northwest Airlines as not an airline I noticed with any regularity. As a kid, the airlines that mattered were United, Continental, and Frontier – all three hubbing at Stapleton International Airport – of those three, only one exists – strangely all three are that one. (I’m talking about the original […]

A quick trip to Washington…

Last weekend I made a quick — four night — trip to Washington, D.C. The goal was to attend the 2017 Equality March.

Although I’ve become quiet politically, I still have strong opinions about being liberal. With the election of Donald […]

Flying Pam Ann

my ticket!

Wednesday night I finally saw a comedian that I’ve wanted to see for years: Pam Ann.

Given how much I love travel, in particular, flying, let me just say that Pam Ann is a comedian right up my alley. She does comedy that is based on the airline industry, poking fun […]

18:00 CET – In Motion

For six nights in a row this week, I will not be sleeping in the same bed twice – right now I’m half way through this travel marathon and I am looking forward to being at rest, somewhere.

Monday at 10:00 Mountain Standard Time I was in Denver, specifically at the airport, […]

Notes on Pond-Hopping and Subsequent Events

Yesterday’s post was written from the comfort of my own apartment in Berlin. This post is written, at least right now, at 36,000 feet, somewhere south of Reykjavik, Iceland. Funny enough I know somebody who is vacationing there, at least as I write this.

Checking in 24 hours in advance of the flight was well […]

German, French, Spanish, and British collaboration, coming together in Hamburg: Airbus

Thursday I went to Hamburg—a one-night journey—in order to visit one of Hamburg’s most advanced factories, the Airbus facility.

I can’t really explain how it happened to come to be this week, but essentially I remember that Airbus was in Hamburg after the Whiney Expatriate Blogger Meet-Up, and then I sort of started making plans, […]

My Weekend in Photos

Spot something out of place here?


Hitler reviewing plane orders…

Overly Technical

The Concorde in "flight position"

So this was the big weekend that Kyiv Katya and I headed to the Technik Museum at Sinsheim and Speyer.

I’m not quite sure how I convinced her to go to both museums over the holiday weekend, but I did. For me the key attraction was the ability to […]
