Meanderings of a Working Travel Agent

Fly Me to the Moon

It is definitely becoming more of a reality. Right now you can’t get to the moon but you can get to fly up into space for six whole hours while you are served gourmet food and wine and watch the galaxy. Wow – I am not kidding. This offer was sent to me recently by one of our suppliers –

Let us take you to Space!

Experience an exclusive, transformative, and meticulously crafted spaceflight in the first-of-its-kind spaceship. Space Perspective has designed your journey to be exhilarating and celebratory, with ample time for contemplation. Share cocktails, chat with your fellow passengers, and select the perfect playlist for the climb while enjoying the 360-degree view of Earth.

What do you think? If you have been to 100 countries and now want to add something to the list that very few people can come back with “Oh we did that already 5 years ago”

I know you have come across those people when you travel – those who have been everywhere, done everything. Well imagine if you are armed with this …”Actually our last trip was up into space….”

It gets better – you can actually get married up in space –


• UNIQUE and amazing experience of 6 hours
• Astonishing 360-degree visibility through the largest panoramic windows ever flown to space.
• Nine reclining, plush seats, for eight Space Explorers and a pilot. These may be reconfigured to accommodate a special event, like a dinner for two or a wedding.
• Dark and tactile materials throughout the interior to reduce glare and reflection.
• Refreshments bar and cabinet for belongings.
• Wi-Fi connection, with communications devices to enable live streaming.
• Accommodations for scientific instruments supporting research projects.
• Splashdown cone at base allows for smooth landing on the water.
• Fully-equipped restroom.

I did wonder a bit about the splashdown cone at the base for the smooth landing. I wonder if everyone is allowed to clap at landing.

The other thing that got me wondering is what if you get air sick. Where do they keep the little bags and do you get weightless up there. Chris Hadfield did a handy demonstration on how to throw up in space….

So I guess this is just the beginning. If this works well then I guess it won’t be long before we start seeing Sandals and Club Med on the moon. Although it may just be a little bit different

The Wonder of Duct Tape

Every house should have a roll of duct tape.  This stuff is amazing.  It can do just about anything around the house – or around your person.  Word has it that it has even been used by women who want to go braless but need that extra little lift! 


Blog…Is AI a Good Thing?

So is this really me writing this blog or is it AI? This has become so popular now and I am reading about it all over the place. I’m not really sure if I should call it AI or chat box or GPT.   It seems to have so many different names


Are You a Verified Traveller?

That’s what you have to be if you don’t want to unpack your briefcase …. And everything else.

We have all been through that rigmarole.  Before you even enter security you start getting ready by taking off your belt and fiddling in pockets.


In the Zone

Do you do this?  The minute I get my boarding pass I check which zone I am in.  I hate being in zone 4 or 5 because that means you get on last and you know how hard it can be to find a place to stick your carry on.  Of course, if I wanted to be in zone 1 then I should just book first class or business, right?


Obnoxious Fellow Passengers

I have read lots of stories about having to sit next to or near a fellow passenger on a flight who just doesn’t know how to behave in the air.  But my flight from Calgary to Newark last Friday was a first hand experience.  I settled into my seat and while we were waiting to take off the “lady” behind  me had a long loud telephone call with someone who I gathered from the call was her “loved one”.  You know there are ways you can have a telephone call in a crowded place – and you can do it discreetly but this word was not in this woman’s vocabulary.
