Business Travel AppsRoad warriors and infrequent business travelers alike are after the same things when it comes to being on the road: getting from point A to point B with as little hassle as possible. In a global marketplace the goal of smooth travel is not always a reality, and most business travelers have come to expect some kind of delay, be it a natural disaster, a delayed flight, car rental incompetency or hotels that don’t quite live up to the promises made in the online descriptions. Business travelers have come to expect the worst (and who can blame them), but they shouldn’t have to. Global business travel has grown due in part to the rise of a global economy steeped in technology. So why don’t we take advantage of some of this technology to make business travel easier?

Elephants,zebras and flamingos of course, but also fine food and scenery.

NAIROBI, Kenya – We left the old colonial Norfolk hotel, which was which was the starting point for so many of our safaris over the years for great so called white hunters, wildlife lovers like my wife Babette and for strictly photographic shooters like myself early on a sparkling sunny Sunday morning.

Everyone seems to know that magical word "Safari." Although in Swahili it means just journey, what a journey and experience it is for those whom undertake it. Or, as our resident poet would have it ...." Africa has provided me with a bouquet of memories that will never fade and die. At its core Africa is primeval, and often sublime, but always enthralling". To which I would add that to (Photo "Lion in Botswana" courtesy of Bartholomew O'Dwyer) many people I know the safari will always remain one of the finest experiences in life, to be savored and enjoyed with friends and family for years to come.
