My Johnny Jet ‘Travel Style’ Interview

JohnnyJet was an internet travel superstar before there was any such thing, he started a website that was a collection of links, everything you’d find online about travel, and grew it from there including television specials. He has a series where he interviews famous (Peter Greenberg, Pauline Frommer) and ‘almost famous’ travelers.

And I’m really humbled to be the latest of his ‘Travel Style’ interviews, though I don’t quite fit the almost famous category even.

You can read about my favorite US city, my favorite World Heritage site, favorite restaurants both fancy and hole in the wall, my favorite airports, what I carry on, and what I’m reading now. As well as my favorite travel websites. And he gave me the chance to boil my travel advice down to a single tip, so I offered what I think is the one most important lesson. In case you’re interested.

It was great to be asked and fun to answer, hope the product is an enjoyable one.

  1. Can you comment a little more about the smooth ride of a 777? I’ve flown a 747 but not the 777. Maybe I don’t fly enough but I don’t notice much change between aircraft. (of similar size at least)

    Great interview

  2. OK Gary, where exactly do you find the best dim sum in SF? Been looking for a while now, and haven’t come up with anything close.

  3. props for head/earphones that AREN’T Bose or something from Monster (Beats, anyone?).

  4. Now that you mention it, both my 747 travels as well as the 777 travels between Frankfurt and Newark, were always smooth, where as my much smaller domestic travel is always filled with some level of turbulence.
