We travel a fair amount, on a variety of airlines bound for an even larger variety of locations; some big, some small, some with luxurious airport (and lounges) and some that are bare bones. Every time we travel, we know that we’re so fortunate to be able to fly at all; not all of us are in that position. Those of you who are also avid travelers know what we mean and, like us, we’re pretty sure that you’re always looking out for the latest, newest destination to whet your travel appetite.
