As soon as I saw the article online I hopped into the mommy mobile and raced over to Barnes & Nobles, silently praying, Please let them have it, Please let them have it! Guess what, the had it, The New York Post, right here in Sunny California. I think I may have purchased the one and only copy. Back in the car I frantically flipped through the paper until I landed on page 45! And there it was, the article I’d seen online written by David Landsel.
Next time David Landsel is on my flight, I’m going to buy him a drink. Not just a drink, a drink and a snack! A drink, a snack and I’ll get him an aisle seat – even if there’s not one available! Somehow. Or maybe I’ll just do the old “Excuse me, Mr. Landsel, your first class upgrade went through. Follow me!” routine. Until then, follow him….

Every new advance has helped us travel better. What now, then? These days, we get our information in tiny, 140-character bursts of text, or tweets. Don’t roll your eyes like an old person.

Sign up today — it’s free, you know — and start off by following these ten feeds…
