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.


Coffee Mug of the Month: Six Degrees of Orcutt

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.
