Medieval in Schaumburg

May 09, 15 Medieval in Schaumburg

Posted by in Featured, Illinois, Schaumburg

There’s not a lot to do in Schaumburg, this is what I discovered when I went looking for an activity on my birthday. The choices: Legoland (which is no fun without kids and not actually open in the evenings), shopping (at the 7th largest shopping mall in the US), and LARPing (live action role playing). I’m not much of a...

Gluten Free in Schaumburg

I’m not sure what’s going on with the gf scene in Schaumburg. But, apparently, glutinos have brow beaten every restaurant into compliance. There were moments where I hadn’t completely asked the do you have a gf menu question and it was already being handed to me. Nowhere in the world have I ever experienced such a...

Schaumburg

May 05, 15 Schaumburg

Posted by in Featured, Illinois, Schaumburg

Not all of my work travel is about exciting cities, seeing movie stars, or working with companies that I can only refer to by the first letter of their name (e.g. The Big G). Sometimes I get sent to a tiny little place that is full of cookie cutter houses, construction dirt, a strip mall with a box store or two, a few hotels, and...

The Eiffel Tower

May 03, 15 The Eiffel Tower

Posted by in Featured, France, Paris

Paris is an old city. But, ironically, the symbol that most people associate with Paris is rather new: the Eiffel Tower. Built for the 1889 Universal Exposition in Paris, this giant hunk of metal sees a constant stream of protesters, tourists, pickpockets, damage threats, soldiers carrying machine guns, tour buses, and fitness...

Over 5,000 paintings, ceramics, and sculptures draw people from around...

The Louvre: Three Ladies

Apr 29, 15 The Louvre: Three Ladies

Posted by in Featured, France, Paris

Like mentioned in my last post, we were overwhelmed by how much is in the Louvre; so, I am only going to focus on three works of art in this post, which I am going to call the three ladies. Each of the three ladies comes from a different art era, geographical location, and artistic style. Also, none are the most famous lady of all...

The Louvre: Big, Brooding, and Vast

Apr 27, 15 The Louvre: Big, Brooding, and Vast

Posted by in Featured, France, Paris

Like mentioned in my previous Louvre post, you could spend decades in the gallery and not see everything. It’s not the type of place that you can visit in one day and we were completely overwhelmed after only a few hours. Most of our time was spent exploring the Baroque and Rococo sections. After, we went in search of The...

Posted by in California, Featured, Life on the Road

Oh United. I’d forgotten how much I loathe you. Your customer service agents who can’t. Your stupid little rules and subtle ways of making travel miserable. The way to abuse frequent travellers. I had gotten used to taking flights on an airline with great customer service. Flights with personable stewards and pilots. Fights...
