Take this job and shove it...

Steven Slater
2010 was a year with some pretty strange travel stories.  The year started with an humiliating exit from an aircraft for chubby film director, Kevin Smith, to a questionably triumphant exit by a flipped out flight attendant, Steven Slater. See The Top Travel Stories of 2010 according to msnbc.comVoters picked the winner of the number one spot by an overwhelming majority (at least the last time I checked) and it was Mr. Slater's dramatic departure on August 9th. Check out some hilarious animation of the event here.  

From TSA pat downs to disabled cruise ships, this hasn't been a good year for the travel industry - when has it been?  Let's hope 2011 brings something better....

About Me

My photo
I didn’t dip my toe in an ocean until I turned 25 and my friend Sandy and I traveled to Puerta Vallarta, Mexico. After that week, I was hooked. I loved being somewhere new; smelling the smells, tasting new food, seeing how other people lived. It energized me. As luck would have it, I landed a job that allowed me to travel all over the US and often to Canada. Being a sports event television producer, I was on the road all the time. That's when my love affair with travel began. Now, its 20 years later and still no one gets more “geeked up” about planning a vacation than I do. All I need is a destination and some travel companions and my fire is lit! I start delving into my favorite hotel sites, sifting through photos and reviews, comparing, contrasting -it’s like an addiction. The travel shows with tips and trends? I study them like a playbook. I LOVE doing the things most people hate doing before they go on vacation. Whether it be searching for a food tasting tour with a local or discovering a romantic B&B in the middle of New York - I’ve found it and I’ll share it with you. So....where should we go?
