  1. @ Gary — The Japanese people are on to something. I’m considering moving to Japan and then never traveling again.

  2. @ Gary — Love the shady accounting going on with these leases. Nothing could possibly go wrong here.

  3. With staffing shortages and hordes of tourists and other travelers, it seems that the hassle of going somewhere isn’t worth it anymore. Today I had two train cancellations (shortage of staff) in the UK with doubt about getting back, so I cancelled and actually feel okay with being back at home. And I buy first class/business class tickets. Of course, I have been almost everywhere in my life and maybe I am just old, but it seems that travel to special places is not what it used to be.
