    UPDATE: The “running man” button on the new Google Flights has been removed.

One of my favorite features is the calendar chart that shows the lowest fares by departure date for any given set of itineraries (both cites and length of trip). The problem is that I cannot find the button for…

  • Venice’s Bridge of Sighs

    There is a famous bridge in Venice called The Bridge of Sighs. Sarah and I got our picture taken in front of it and then later on learned about the significance of the bridge. The bridge linked the palace of Venice’s ruler (Doge’s Palace) to the city prison. Convicted prisoners were allowed one last peek…

  • Unleashing Your Creative Potential

    Sarah and I recently got to visit Italy – home to some of the world’s greatest art, architecture, and historical sites. It is a very moving experience to stand in front of Rome’ Pantheon or Michaelangelo’s David statue in Florence and reflect on the human ability to create beautiful art. You could make the case…

But there is another detail of this story that…
