All of us pay for a ticket that entitles us to a seat on the flight. If you can't fit within the seat you paid for, then you need to purchase a larger seat, or multiple seats. Feeling entitled to part of the seat I purchased simply because you couldn't afford (or were too cheap to purchase) the space you need is unacceptable.
This isn't about belittling big people, it's about each of us getting exactly what we've paid for.
I think a lot of people immediately think of the great surf and weather in hawaii. Don't get me wrong I definitely still love surfing but more recently I have found that golfing in hawaii can be an absolute blast. You wont find more beautiful courses.
It can be awful sitting next to a chatterbox but sometimes it's amusing. Recently, I sat next to a man on a flight who began to speak as soon as we'd buckled our seat belts. I tried to put him off but he kept talking about himself and within minutes I realized he was making up most of it. At that point he had my full attention. I'm a careful listener and he was a bad liar. Cheryl-Anne
At least the behemoth slept.
What I hate is getting stuck next to a chatterbox who is oblivious to what having a laptop out means and thinks that what they have to say is more important than what anyone else wants or needs to do.
When my late grandfather worked on the docks in NY as a teen he said he learned one thing from rolling barrels: "The empty ones make the most noise."
There's always a lot of legroom on Biafran Airlines, however its limited to two carry on chickens per passenger and you have to lift your legs up on takeoff.
Thanks "Sue" I replied without my glasses the first time :)
Great photo, Sue. And thanks for the wonderful tips for insulating the tripod. Great info! CAM
Thanks for reading and commenting, Craig. I enjoy following your adventures. I'm especially jealous of all that Florida Keys sunshine :)CAM
such poetic prose... wonderful. And I so agree...it is never about the photographs, but the "now" of the experience... so glad to read you enjoyed the moment(s)....
stay adventurous, Craig
Enjoyed your article, especially the comment " ... whatever kind of photo I brought home with me wouldn’t matter. The real magic had imprinted in me and I knew I would never forget it....", & photo.
I've been to Churchill on the Tundra Wilderness Expedition trip, but wasn't lucky enough to see The Lights! So that remains on my bucket list. As an amateur photographer, here's a pointer for your frozen tripod. Buy some pipe insulation. It is round, sort of foamlike. Cut pieces long enough for the top part of the tripod legs, closest to the head. Slit the foam down the length on one side (or it may already have a slit, it was so long ago I can't remember) and slide it onto the tripod legs, add a little duct tape (and they come in such pretty patterns & colors now) and voila no freezing skin ...

You tell stories in such a lovely way--I can see your daughter flying ahead of you, through Paris. I love the memories that you wrap into the trip--they will be precious to her.
