We just arrived at the Newark Airport in New Jersey and have four hours to while away. Thank goodness our business class tickets allow us to suffer in the United Polaris Club (Thank you Kevin for spending all those times in coach class gathering up our miles). Our flight here was wonderful as we had lay back beds even though it was a day trip. Our next flight will arrive in Dublin at midnight PST so look for another post at that time. And just a shout out to a Rudy, who is manning the house and our four legged children, Callie, our wonderful housekeeper and Jamie who came right away and determined that our freezer had not gone kaput at the last minute before our trip.... read more

Today is the day we boarded this beautiful ship! We are only one hour ahead of Missouri and seeing that I normally am awake by 5:30am, I didn't think setting an alarm was necessary. We woke-up at 9:43am Eastern time. Check-out and our shuttle to the cruise ship were both at 11:00am. It was shocking, funny, and marvelous. I had laid-out and organized everything the evening prior so we took showers and grabbed our bags. The ride to the cruise ship was the two of us and this very large extended family of a widowed mom with her grown children (in their 50s/60s) and their spouses. The men started talking about all the seafood they planned to eat on this cruise... fried shrimp, boiled lobster, baked salmon... they all sounded like Forest Gumps. It was funny. ... read more

Start Spreading The News…. …we saw New York City from New Jersey! 😉 HA Today was a beautiful day with perfect weather and friendly New Jersey folks! So… let’s back-up… we (as usual) left home late and arrived in St Louis at almost 5 o’clock exactly yesterday. The traffic was crazy. Why do we do these things to ourselves? We stayed at a Hilton (Hampton) next to the airport. The receptionist at the check-in desk used to work for Lisa and she lived in Thayer. It’s a small world folks. We started watching the Nationals beat the Astros in Game 1 of the World Series and fell asleep during the end. We left our hotel room at 3am this morning. It was cold and windy in St Louis when we left. We slept on our flight ... read more

With my 34th tax season behind me, we now begin our 7thtrip to France. Like our trip to Italy, we once again splurged for business class tickets. Flying United this gives us access to the Polaris Business Class Lounge. Like the Air Canada lounge in Montreal, this is a very posh and comfortable space. Everything is gratis. The major It difference between the United and Air Canada lounge is that in addition to the buffet they have an order off the menu dining room. I spent a few hours at the office doing client billing and then left a bit before noon to meet Jerry at Penn Station. We decided to get to the airport a few hours early in order to be able to take full advantage of the Polaris Lounge. We are very excited ... read more

Wednesday March 28,2018 My folks dropped me off at Princeton Junction Train Station around 5:30 pm and I waited for the train to the Newark Airport Stop. It took me about 50 minutes to get to Newark Airport and then rode the AirTrain to Terminal C. I printed out my boarding pass and waited in line for a United Representative to check my Bag and Passport. I walked towards the Security&TSA Control area and waited for about an hour before getting through security. Phew! Finally walked to find my gate which was C121 and then just walked around the revamped Shops and Restaurants of that terminal. I waited awhile and then our flight(UA940) boarded around 10:15pm and I met a nice woman sitting beside me for the flight into London Heathrow. A very smooth flight for ... read more

Over the last week or so I've been reading reviews of St. Petersburg, gathering documents, printing hard copy (old school) of transfers etc and 'thinking' about what to pack. Hopefully, this preparation will make my time in country easier. My barber (in the photo) is from the Ukraine and has been coaching me on important Russian phrases. I wonder how my Southern accent distorts the pronunciation. Leaving Newark, NJ about 6PM and arriving St. Petersburg Saturday, 4:30 PM, I plan to sleep most of the way (hopefully)... read more

Geo: 40.7319, -74.1741 Notre vol n'est qu'à 15h30. Le début de journée sera relaxe à l'hôtel où nous profitons une dernière fois de la piscine et de la mer... C'est un site splendide, il faudra revenir! L'arrivée à Newark ne se fait que vers 20 heures. On conserve nos étiquettes de bagages pour être sûr de ne pas payer deux fois pour l'enregistrement de bagages! On prend ensuite le air train pour se rendre au terminus de train. On attend quand même assez longtemps. Il fait très froid... Tout un changement de Bonaire! On prend le train puis rendu au terminus Penn de Manhattan on décide de prendre un taxi pour se rendre à l'hôtel. La température est exécrable. Il pleut et il fait vraiment froid. On prend possession de la chambre puis on soupe au ... read more
