Black Hole Travel, etc.

Back from nearly a month of travel, so, a travel note:

… those who part with $2,285 a night to stay in a cliff-top room at the Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur pay partly for the privilege of not having a TV in their rooms; the future of travel, I’m reliably told, lies in “black-hole resorts,” which charge high prices precisely because you can’t get online in their rooms.

The Joy of Quiet –


  1. I recently rented a room at a Motel-8 in Blacksburg for $82/night all-in and the TV was broken. And because we were behind a mountain there was no cell phone reception either. As an added bonus I met the very nice couple from Bangalore running the hotel.

    I win!
