@emily – I will make that more clear in future entries, these are meant to be practical, sometimes tongue-in-cheek, items on making travel with a partner a success based on my personal experience and what works for us. In my case that is my wife, so I will not be much help with tips on managing a husband and will of course not apply to others’ wives!


if it’s travel harmony tips for *your* wife, that’s fine. it sounded like it was meant to be more general.

@emily – this is a rule she implemented, she wants the effort shown even when it is not needed as a sign of consideration.


a touch on the misogynist side. if i were your wife, i would be less than pleased.


drop off in front works for all situations and earns double bonus points in weather best described as inclement.

i especially like how you titled it “001”.

as if you expect there to be less than a thousand tips on how to achieve harmony… 🙂


Funny … mine won’t get out (unless its raining / windy and it’ll mess up her hair), and as far as upgrades go, she’d rather I sit in the back with her and give the upgrade to someone else.

what’s a guy to do?


We never get to the airport early enough to do anything but park and hightail to the gate. I guess that could be another tip – get to the airport early enough to be able to let wife out at the entrance because she does seem to get upset when this occurs.

doesn’t work .. I used to do it and I’m now very happily re-singled.

But I like it that you’re trying. And so will your followers. 🙂

Tip #2. If you are upgraded and the wife isn’t, the wife always gets the upgrade.
