Ilona And Derek Take The World Part 4 - How To Get To LA During The Winter Storms

Three months later it was time for another date. Unfortunately, when two people live on different continents, they cannot see each other as often as they’d like. It was Christmas, so Derek and his family were spending the holidays in Los Angeles. I had never been to LA before, and Derek bribed me with a ticket from LA to Hawaii. How could I resist that?

Ilona and Derek Take The World - Part 3

After our “first official date” in Stuttgart, Germany we knew that this would not be our last meeting. Luckily in Europe you get more vacation time (about 30 days per year) so it was my turn to come to Derek - to New York. In September 2010 I landed in JFK airport. Unfortunately, Polish citizens still need a visa to enter the US. Poland joined the European Union in 2004 and Schengen area in 2007 but the visa is still required.

Four Ways To Find Comfort in Economy Class

I make my way into my window seat from New York to Denver. It doesn’t feel so terrible back here in economy class, or so I think for a New York minute. And then my middle seat neighbor arrives and promptly takes up the armrest along with half of my seat with his elbow. He has also apparently taken a shower in cheap cologne in preparation for the flight. He extends his legs into my miniscule legroom space. I mutter to myself that it’s only a few hours. I can just work the whole time and ignore how uncomfortable I am. I whip out my laptop and type away until the seat in front of me lunges back, mere inches from my nose. My computer screen slams shut thanks to by lounge-happy neighbor.

  • For Venetians, the 21st of November is an important date.

  • The French phrase, “Bon appétit,” is often used as a substitute for the lack of an English phrase of the same meaning. While you might hear, “Enjoy your meal,” Bon appétit is one of the most common ways of greeting someone before they chow down. As most of the country gets ready to have a Thanksgiving feast, in case you have a few at your table who don’t speak English or French for that matter, it is useful to know how to wish someone a good meal in some of France’s neighbors. Here’s how to say essentially, “Good appetite,” in 15 European languages....read more
