The Schiphol Amsterdam Airport (AMS) is one of the largest international airports in the world, covering 6,887 acres and carrying 68 million passengers to destinations all over the Earth! AMS has a great layout and doesn’t feel as humongous as say, Barcelona, where you have to take 10,000 escalators and a train to get to one departure gate. There...

Our family trip to Norway was one of those standby adventures gone wrong, but one we probably should have known better to anticipate. I was stressed for weeks leading up to this vacation. We had three flights to take after disembarking the Disney Wonder cruise ship, and making our way to our Christmas destination in Norway. That meant three...

After chasing down the Northern Lights unsuccessfully in Iceland four years ago, this unfulfilled dream of ours has never left the forefront of our thoughts.

Three of those eight days were spent at the Oslo Gardermoen Airport in fact. We had zero success getting on a flight to Tromsø for Christmas, and we had zero success getting on a flight out of...

What happens when the highest paid actor in the world, worth $225 million dollars, who typically plays roles as America’s hero, none other than Mark Wahlberg, serves your kid raw chicken at his mediocre restaurant at Boston Logan International Airport, BOS? He doesn’t give you a refund, that’s what. That extra $30 is going to bump him off the...

Sometimes flying standby means you get to the airport an hour before your flight, and jump on when it’s time to board. But usually, it means waiting around for hours and hours until you finally hear your name and don’t know how to react because you're positive you are hallucinating from being out in the airport desert without a...

Flying standby is never without a high risk of hazards and rewards. If you’re willing to chance the opportunity of flying at the last minute, in whatever open seat is available, to whichever destination the pilot happens to be flying, you’re going to have a great story at the end of it. Such was the case when we flew...
