USA-bound for the holidays

300px-Xmas_tree.svg_

This will be the last post made on Swedish soil for a while. I’m headed to the Heartland of America to spend Christmas with my family and friends. It’s exciting and nerve-wracking all at the same time, largely because Dr. Darling is not coming along due to the fact that Post Denmark is a BIG GRINCH. …

“There’s no place like home.”

As much as I love to travel, see new places and experience different cultures, I am pretty much always happy to get home. There’s just something so wonderful about crawling into your own bed after multiple days on the road, as well as standing under your own shower enveloped by the familiar fragrance of your …

Greetings from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi where we are awaiting our final flight … this one on an African airline, Precision Air. The first two were via Qatar Airways and I cannot say enough about  the service aboard those flights. (Ground services are another story, which I’ll get to in a minute.) First …

We’ve been at Kastrup for two hours now, and have just now settled in at the gate … which only opened about 3 minutes ago despite the fact that all airport info signage has been directing people here for hours. The Qatar Airlines staff I talked to yesterday when the electronic check -in system did …

Africa-bound!

We are soon headed for Copenhagen to begin our journey to the Dark Continent … and by “dark” I mean *extremely limited internet access*. Which means most of the stories and images from our adventures will probably be share after-the-fact … kind of like NBC’s version of the London Olympics! I’d be lying if I …
