On My Radar Screen - Happy First Weekend in May!!

New York Botanical Garden

Happy Friday everyone!! I can't believe it is already May...finally it feels like Spring and the weather is expected to cooperate throughout the weekend in my neck of the woods.  We will be watching the Derby on Saturday and probably going to the New York Botanical Gardens on Sunday. 

Do you have anything special planned? Between Derby Day tomorrow and Cinco de Mayo on Sunday, there is no lack of things to do!
Before I share the latest travel buzz I have discovered this week from scouring the internet, I want to say Happy Birthday to my son, Christopher...I hope the surf is good, the beers are cold and your show at the Tiki is sold out!! 
Okay...here's the latest from the world of travel...

Have you heard of Route Happy? It's a new site that let's you enter your flight itinerary and find out which flights offer the best "happiness factor" (ie. best planes, most legroom, inseat entertainment etc.)


Want to experience camping in the heart of the city? Check out Bivouac where a rooftop campsite doubling as an art installation is located on undisclosed rooftops in New York, London and Boston.

Six Senses Maldives

The World's Coolest Hotel Bathtubs  are featured in Travel and Leisure. I am not sure I love the idea of a glass bottomed bathtub...what do you think??


One Kings Lane has some great travel accessories on sale this weekend...check them out before they sell out! They would make great Mother's Day gifts...hint, hint.


The votes are in...the best baguette in Paris has been chosen. The Grand Prix of baguettes goes to Rida Khadher, who will now have the pleasure of supplying the presidential palace with their bread for the next year.

That's all for now...I hope everyone has a lovely weekend wherever they may be wandering!!
