I love any hotel in which the question at check-in is "Would you like 'tarmac view'?".
I am disappointed, a bit, that I managed to take two Connecticut business trips this year, and did not get a chance to check out "Dinosaur State Park" on either. I live my life by the guiding principle that any park named Dinosaur deserves a look-see.
I've been reading about birding in Europe. I love the way that any place other than one's own has this weird kind of alien beauty, waiting to be discovered.
