    I love to travel!  Since I was a youngster, my family traveled frequently both domestically and internationally.  As an adult, I am fortunate to work for an European company which gives me over a month of vacation each year plus US Holidays so I have plenty of time to holiday all over the country and the world!  Here is a small collection of my travel pictures.  I currently hold VIP status with many airline and hotel loyalty programs including Diamond Status with Hilton HHonors because of my extensive travel for both business and pleasure.

    Let's start exploring my destinations by looking at my domestic travel pictures.  I have them broken down by geographical areas, and although I do not a picture from every place I have been in this vast country of ours on this website, I did put the states that I have been to within that geographic area.  We can start up in New England with my "wicked good" pictures.

    Ready to party!  How about we head down to Vegas?  I love Vegas, and I have been there so many times that I lost count of the exact number.  I posted some pictures of the rooms & suites from a few of the hotels on the strips.

    California is a very LARGE state, and there are lots of things to see.  I think I have pretty much seen most of it all here.  Grab an energy drink or two, it is a long drive down the I-5 from the Oregon border to San Diego.

    A drive up the Oregon coast is very scenic and beautiful.  We can stop in Coos Bay to explore a nice small town or even ride some ATVs in the Oregon Dunes. Once we get to Portland, we can grab a box of Voodoo Donuts.

    The Rocky Mountains are a sight to behold, and the mile high air up in Denver is not as bad as people say.  Wyoming is home to "Old Faithful" in Yellowstone National Park and other natural beauty.

    Both South Lake Tahoe and the northern side of the lake are amazing, but the "biggest little city" in the world, Reno, has lots of fun things to do.

    Head north to Alaska, and be prepared for sunlight until midnight in some areas.  Don't be fooled and get some shut eye as one needs their energy to explore this beautiful state.

    Aloha from the beautiful state of Hawaii.  I have explored two of the islands there, and I am still willing to go back to see the rest.

Domestic or International, the Premium Cabin is the way to travel!

Always remember to preorder meals when flying in the premium cabin also!

Delta has the best first class service of any of our domestic carriers in my opinion.  I took them to Canada on my trip to our neighboring land to the north in 2019.

Having Hilton HHonors Diamond Status is great, but it goes farther overseas where Hilton properties go out of their way to welcome Diamond guests with gifts or specialty snacks and baked goods.

One of my worst experiences in the first class cabin was on US Airways.  Luckily, USAir merged with American and went away.  One would expect a full meal service on a four hour flight in the premium cabin. but we just got "premium" snacks.  LOL.

I took the Shinkansen "Bullet" Train all over the island of Honshu in Japan.  The maximum speed of this train is about 200 mph.  It is a fun experience!

I have enjoyed all my international stays at the Waldorf Astoria properties including the location in Panama and France.  The Waldorf Astoria is Hilton's top luxury brand.  This is my room key from the property in Panama City, Panama.

Having A-List on Southwest Airlines is awesome since I get checked in ahead of others so I can board early and get my favorite window seat.  Since they fly international also, I have taken advantage of my A-List benefits overseas also.

I recommend having a Priority Pass membership through a credit card like Chase Sapphire Reserve so one can relax in airport lounges when traveling!

    One of my favorite activities is travelling all around the country and the world.  Since I was a little boy, my family took vacations around the world.  I have been to the England, Denmark, Holland, Japan, Thailand, Singapore, Canada, and India before I became a teenager.  Since then, I have also been to Mexico, Aruba, France, Scotland, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Iceland, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Sweden, Peru, Germany, Panama, Jamaica, Turks & Caicos Islands, Hong Kong, Macau, Belize, Dominican Republic, and the Bahamas too.  I have been to most of the states as well including Hawaii, Florida, and New York. During my college years, we had many fraternity "road trips" as well as other opportunities to travel.  I worked for an European pharmaceutical company from 2010 to 2021 so I got over six weeks of vacation every year!  As a result, I took full advantage and travel as much as I could.  In my current position as a Medical Specialist at a biotech leader, I get ample vacation time too!  We also get the full week between Christmas and New Year's off each year. 

    I hold VIP status with several frequent traveler programs as well from all my business travel too!  As a result, when I travel, I like to travel in style.  Whether it's flying first class or enjoying an airline club like the Delta Sky Club or United Club, I am all about traveling in comfort and enjoying my travels.  I also like to indulge in fine dining when I travel also.  I have held some of the highest statuses on airline loyalty programs including Platinum Pro on American Airlines, Sapphire on OneWorld, Silver Status On Star Alliance, and A List on Southwest Airlines.  Moreover, as an elite member of several hotel chains, I get upgraded to large suites and receive executive lounge access as well!  I have been a Hilton HHonors Diamond member since 2012.  I also have my Known Traveler ID from my Global Entry membership so I get TSA Pre-Check.  Furthermore, I have a membership in Priority Pass Select which gives me access to numerous VIP airport lounges across the world.

    What about business travel?  I travel a lot for business as well.  In fact, check out the card below that was attached to a basket of delicious custom cookies that a hotel in Truckee, CA sent me for Christmas one year since I stayed at their property every other week for years.  They would do their best to upgrade me to their nicest suites also with a jacuzzi tub in the bedroom and fireplace.  I got my Hilton Honors Diamond status from all the overnight travel I had with my current company since 2010.  Since 2016, my business travel has slowed down, but I have still been able to maintain my Diamond status with all the personal travel I do.  I enjoy traveling for business as well.  We have had large meetings at a few of the Las Vegas hotels including the Venetian and Palazzo as well as Caesar's Palace.  The company has rented out the hottest dance clubs in Las Vegas for private parties for us.  We have had meetings near Disney properties as well with events inside Disneyland.  There was even a private concert by the group O|A|R at a meeting I went to.  One of my favorite properties that we have had meetings at is the Resort at Squaw Creek in beautiful Squaw Valley, CA.  The annual kick off meetings there allowed us a chance to play broomball on the ice rink as well as do some skiing too!

The Hampton Inn in Truckee appreciated all the stays I had with them so they sent me a nice cookie basket one year for Christmas!
