The Secret to a Relaxing Vacation: Meticulous, Detailed Plans: I enjoyed reading this article in New York magazine. I know that planning things in advance drives some people crazy, but there really is a purpose. I hate waiting in lines, so if there’s any way to eliminate those I’m all for it.

Unusual Wish List for 2020: I enjoyed reading this 2020 wish list on Skift. I especially love the wish for more overnight trains.

Enjoy your weekend!
