"Travel ain't what it used to be..." 'James "Kimo" Rosen'

 Who needs to vacation when riding my bicycle with my dog running alongside with friends
is more relaxing than hopping on an airplane and going away...
Travel ain't what it used to be

Is it just me?

Travel sure ain't what it used to be.

The airlines are always packed to capacity, the seats are closer together and they pack you in like cattle. 

Families are  traveling with out of control kids.

If you happen to get seated next to an Obese person or someone who wants to drink and talk this can be a very unpleasant experience,factor all this in with with the perverts at  airport security and  getting nickle and dimed for every pound of luggage.

You can no longer meet people like a potential life mate since  everyone is in their own narcissistic world with their cell phones, i-phones i-pads and laptops in constant use.

Traveling by air is what bus travel was years ago. Air travel used to be special, people wore their finest clothing and practiced proper manners, now it's like trailer park  trash people flying the airwaves.

Restaurants are not much better, tables seem closer together and everyone is so sensitive. What ever happened to being able to send your food back if it wasn't cooked right? Now it seems cooks and  wait staff have become too sensitive and what was the customer is always right has turned into be careful you don't offend the employees.

Call me an agoraphobic,  the best  vacation is just  staying home.   There you will not  have any brat kicking your seat or some cab-driver giving you  stink eye because your tip did not meet their expectations.

I chose to stay home and  enjoy the vacation I call life. Riding my bicycle to the grocery store with my dog running alongside me is all I need.

P.S.
The Royal couple actually named their baby after George, the character played by Jason Alexander on the Seinfeld show; http://www.al.com/entertainment/index.ssf/2013/07/royal_baby.html

P.S.S.
My wife and I were happy for 20 years. Then we met.
