Paper Trail

I just picked up my airline tickets from the good folks at Airtreks. And when I say “picked up,” I mean it. They issue good old-fashioned don’t-lose-’em paper tickets. For the price, though, I don’t mind. They did a great job of booking a lot of one-way tickets on different airlines, literally taking me around the world. This would have been tough on Expedia.

I’ve gotten paper tickets now and then over the years, but I haven’t gone to an office and picked up a stack of tangible tickets since the first time I went to China in 1992. At least this time the police didn’t have to get involved.

Ooops, out of room. I’ll have to tell that story tomorrow.
