I’d say it’s been a little while since I’ve written on this little blog. I can’t say that I’ve worried about it, but I would say I’ve missed it. A lot. What I’ve missed most about it is how simple blogging can be. Think about something you want to say and just write about it. […]
Most of you who keep up with me on twitter know at least two things are certain about me. I love traveling and I love flying American Airlines. Something you won’t pick up from me very often at all is my dislike for other airlines or even bad customer experience from products I use. I […]
For the past 12 years, I’ve been traveling like a mad man. Flying about 25 – 30 round trip flights a year on American Airlines and staying in Hilton brand (Hilton, Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Inn, Homewood Suites) hotels almost every night of those trips.

I really like what Hilton has done over the years. They are a great brand but I find my personal tastes changing. So I’m switching to Marriott. I’m needing more from a hotel brand that makes travel just a tad easier and honestly… I like seeing big brands who are updating their look to keep up with travel trends.

But there’s […]
Here you go friends. My first guest post comes from my new friend, Jeff Goins. Jeff and I share a love for travel and adventure so I asked him to write ‘How Traveling Changed My Worldview”… or his worldview actually. Something else I really like about Jeff is his ability to write and engage people […]
This week I’ve been in California and today I went for a run around Disneyland and Downtown Disney. Yes… I’m a Disney fan but our hotel happened to be next door to the park and I needed a run. So I did… As I’m running, I’m watching families head toward the park and noticing all […]
This week I’m in San Pedro Sula, Honduras with the band Tenth Avenue North. We are about to head out to see Compassion International’s work with children living in extremely poor communities. The experience is always eye opening but the best part is playing with the children in the program and getting to hear a […]
