I have started to document all of my business and sometimes personal travel as I typically have to use technology such as laptops and smartphones in interesting places and situations. Plus I note things that aren’t in any travel guide that I have read. Hopefully my experiences helps you when you travel. I’ll also add travel tips that I’ve found handy to this page as well.
My Trip To The UK
This was a one week trip to the West Midlands in the UK to help an emerging tech company deliver exceptional customer service among other things. This is the typical business trip that I take. But it should provide some insight in terms of what happens on one of these trips.

A Trip To The UK Goes Sideways
I went to the UK to work for a client, but things didn’t go as planned.
My Return To India
I went to India to do some work for a company that I’ve worked for before. However, they opened their new offices in Gurgaon India, as well as attended an event at the Canadian High Commissioner’s home in New Delhi. As a bonus, I got to see the Taj Mahal. That is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me.
My Trip To India & Germany
This was a pretty grueling trip for me as I visited two customers on two continents in just under one week. But it also gave me an opportunity to test out Rogers Roam Like Home roaming feature as I recently switched my mobile phone back to Rogers and readers wanted to know what I thought of the feature.
Our Vacation In Prince Edward County – This was the first vacation in five years for my wife and I to a part of Ontario that isn’t thought of as a vacation destination.
A Day Trip To The Halton County Raidal Railway – This was a day trip to see vintage streetcars and other transit vehicles just west of Toronto.
