I needn’t have worried.
I especially thought about this four years ago when I began my weekend radio show. Would I be able to come up with enough travel news, deals, and interesting guests to build a robust show every week? Or to write these “Travel Minutes” five days a week?
But travel is a fast-evolving world, some of it even good for travelers. And it’s often little things . . . Southwest Airlines decides to replace its leather-covered seats with slimmer seats to fit more passengers on planes and the company donates the leather to an African social enterprise group called Alive & Kicking that turns that leather into soccer balls. (The nonprofit organization has a great slogan: “The balls make a difference.”)
Delta unveils a new entertainment system that allows you to stream TV shows, movies, and games via your personal digital device. Carnival Cruises forbids smoking even on cabin balconies beginning October first. Uncle Sam urges travelers to avoid three Western Africa countries due to the spread of the Ebola virus.
Travel—a story that never ends.
