Procrastination Has a Price

wait for meTHE WORLD SOFT DARTS CHAMPIONSHIP 2013 – Stage 1, will be held on April 28, 2013 at the iDarts Bar in Hong Kong.   The 2013 tournament calendar includes new tour stops in Seoul, Korea and La Rochelle, France.  Hong Kong is always fun, but adding new countries to the tour makes it seem more like a ‘world championship’.  Of course, Las Vegas is on the 2013 calendar again and there is one ‘To Be Announced’ tour stop date.  Personally, I think London is the strategic choice for this TBA date but there are rumors of a certain large city in northern China.  Continue reading

Is This Your Bag?

TSALast year, I accumulated over 100,000 miles with one airline.  I’ve had years where I’ve gotten over 70,000 miles, but never have I gone over 100K.   I think back and wonder how many miles I would have accumulated had I flown every flight last year on the same airline.  With all of those miles comes a lot of time spent in airports.  Too much time, but that is a different story.   Recently, while flying home from a tournament, I pass through the security checkpoint and I take a seat to put my shoes back on.

Hong Kong – One Visit is Not Enough

Hong Kong is cool place.  I like traveling to foreign countries and exploring places that I’ve never been to. I get to see and experience all kinds of things that are interesting and memorable. It’s even more interesting when you don’t speak the local language…or in my case, not very well. I stayed in the Tsim Sha Tsui district of Kowloon, Hong Kong. This area was densely packed with all types of shops, restaurants, jewelry stores, night clubs, electronics stores, and bars. When the sun went down, the place lit up and the area was vibrant and alive. Continue reading
