  • Fighting with New Electronic Devices While Traveling

    I just spent a wonderful holiday weekend, perfect until I tried to use a new computer. I kept getting messages about keychain passwords  and messages crowded the screen. So what is to be learned from an admittedly electronic novice about this nightmare?

    The easy stuff i

    s that you only need an adaptor  out of the US.  Electronic devices are manufactured to charge on different types of electricity. DC is stronger than what we are used to in the US, so your device will charge faster.…

  • When to document with a Photo?

    Everyday we read about videos and photos travelers take to document bad situations. When should you take a photo or video and how should you do it?

    When not to take a photo: 

    A manager/check in personnel has been horrible to you, ask for their card.…

  • What Else Can We Say about United Airlines

    The Women’s Travel Group is horrified. How disgusting was the behavior of the so called “police” on the United flight that dragged a 69 year old doctor off the plane? How low will pretend “big boys” in their fake police-labeled jackets go? And how removed was the crew and captain, who so far are silent? To cap it all off, the CEO Oscar Munoz of United was rude, arrogant, and other words we cannot use here.

    From what we have read, the airline could have offered more $$$ to get passengers off the plane.…
