No Reservations

The rain kept me indoors most of the weekend, where I was fortunate enough to stumble upon the Travel Channel (Comcast sucks!) and a marathon of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations. Otherwise, I might have had to get out of the house. That was scary. I melt.

I know a lot of people that are big fans, but I had never checked the show out. I am fairly sure I told someone (you?) that I didn’t like the guy. Recently, though, I read an article in Writer’s Digest magazine that made me look at Bourdain with newfound respect. He is a great writer, and a great assessor of his surroundings. His gruff, frank demeanor is a refreshing change from the boring manner I find typical of most travel shows. He shows you the best part of the trip, the roadside food stands and regular people’s lives, more in sync with the traveling I do than 5 star hotels are.

If you haven’t seen the show, check it out. If you have, you should have made me watch it sooner, buddy. You know I veg in front of the TV all day. Pay attention.
