My friend had a major mom scare last week. She handed her toddler son a pistachio nut. Within an hour he was vomiting and breaking out into red splotches.

Enjoy the Helpful Crew On Cathay Pacific Airlines with Kids

By Keryn Means |

In general, I do not think much about my airplane experience each time I fly. It is a means to an end. I usually fly United or US Airways just because they have a non-stop from Seattle to Philadelphia, and my company flies to Asia on United. All of my miles are with them. I …

You will never travel again…

By Keryn Means |

Soon after I found out I was pregnant, I turned to my husband and said, “I know life will never be the same, everything will change, but I refuse to stop traveling.” A year and a half later, and this statement is still true. I have resigned myself to the fact that my life revolves …
