My favorite trip naturally involved the best airline flight I’ve ever taken. Back in 2002, I was lucky enough to fly on British Airways flight 001 operated by Concorde from London to New York. That was truly incredible. If I’m not considering airlines, then certainly one of my favorite trips involved a week on Maui in 2005. It was my first trip with my wife and we went with 6 friends.
My dream travel companion is Herb Kelleher, founder of Southwest Airlines. I can imagine nothing more fun than drinking some bourbon and hearing his stories.
