Reworking travel arrangements when plans go awry is a hazard of the trade, but sometimes it results in once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. On this particular trip I was stuck in Manila without a return ticket to Los Angeles. I wound up using miles to get an award ticket home on Cathay Pacific, an airline I rarely get to fly, but have always been impressed with.
Let me start off by saying that I am not a religious person and do not have a religious or political agenda while visiting The Holy Land. I’m here as a tourist, seeing what I get a chance to see and documenting my trip as best as I can. How else can I appreciate the fact that I’ve heard 3 different cover versions of “Personal Jesus” in the hotel bar? Stairway to Heaven is another song I’ve caught in heavy rotation.
