Ever since my late wife and I spent a couple of weeks in Scotland back in 2004, I've wanted to walk the West Highland Way. One of the nice things about doing it in a group is that baggage transfers...

I don't know the details of this credit card program - for one thing, you didn't say which credit card program it is, and they differ - but in most such situations, it's better for the owner of the...

My crystal ball is several revisions out of date, but my guess is that UA will survive in some form and that reward seats will be easy to get for a while. I'd ask another question: will a paid ticket...

I agree 100 percent that it isn't rocket science. My concern is that it isn't universal either. An explosion of home workers will greatly expand the number of people who don't have security factored...

Companies that let employees work from home without confirming the security of their home networks are opening up huge security holes. It's only a matter of time - and probably not much time - before...

You didn't say how long your trip will be, but if this is a short business trip you may be out of luck. Many (most?) RTW fares require a minimum stay of at least ten days outside your continent of...

Haven't read the linked article, but if (a) the plane crashed into the Vancouver harbor, and (b) the suspect fled on foot, maybe the police should just assume He knows what He's doing and let Him go.
