I have been a happy passenger of All Nippon Airlines for two decades. They are my exclusive carrier for my transpacific commute.
Yesterday I received this little token from the ANA folks.
Safe, comfortable, friendly, and thoughtful: that’s why I fly with them.
I’m done with picking redeye flights for the sake of saving a few dollars. The circadian disruption is just brutal, leaving me with jet lag even when I’m flying from LA to Seattle.
One of the redeeming bits about business travel is that it affords the opportunity to discover places to perch. Finding a comfortable, cool little nook or cranny to work, to chat, to read, to write, or to just hang out are the secret joys of travel on the company dime.
I discovered Six Degrees Orcutt in search of breakfast and brew last year. Their overnight oats are superb, and their coffee even better, all in a tiny little line of stores in a village south of Santa Maria.
A total lunar eclipse during a Blue Moon last happened in 1860. I figure it was worth losing a couple of hours of sleep to behold.
