Just got back from London, then Brussels, then London, in the span of five days and with work, I always feel five steps behind. Flights are late, internet connections don't work, phones don't work, projects are due in multiple time zones...Sometimes in the cattle call of traveling today, it's easy to forget that traveling was once very glamorous.
And still can be...I have a lot of back posts to put up this week, but thought I would start out with this little video from Orient Express. This is the trailer but there is a whole collection of them showcasing little episodes in their key properties. All of the things I love about travel are here - new places, meeting friends, champagne glasses clinking, fireworks, surprises, approaches by boat, dressing for dinner, welcome notes in the room, scenery whizzing by on the train. Even though I just got back exhausted, it makes me want to go on another trip! This time, no work!
