Honkers at night.

The ceiling at La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona

Cape Town

Norwegian flies the Boeing 787 “Dreamliner.” That’s me back in 48Z…waving!

Kuala Lumpur

Yup. I’ll be flying the Big Boy: Airbus A380 w/Emirates…an Alaska Air partner.

Hello, London.


I don’t recommend this sort of drive-by travel. But my job here is to prove it can be done. Kicking 2017 off RIGHT!

After a stop in San Francisco to pick up some wine, it’s over-the-pond to London.

Then, my first trip to Africa.

I’ll stop in at La Sagrada Familia (Barcelona) to light a candle for all of the fine air crews and air traffic controllers!

Birthday cake in Singapore. Using my Chase Ultimate Rewards points for hotels here, in Kuala Lumpur and in Hong Kong.

Must stop in Hong Kong to catch my breath and gas up for the flight back home across the Pacific.

I hope you’ll follow along for frequent updates on the Rush-Around-The-World Tour!

After returning to the U.S., we’re going to have a super-special Travel Secrets World Edition: Spring Forward soiree over at the Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum.

We’ll have all the dates and times out soon. And yes, I will have some stories and pictures…not just from me, but also from some of you!!
