Non-ticket Tickets

Yesterday we received our “travel documents” for our upcoming trip to Ireland.  I understand the economies and efficiencies that the airlines achieve by eliminating paper tickets, but there’s just something kind of unsatisfying about spending thousands of dollars for a trip and getting a couple of pieces of paper in an envelope.

It’s not so bad when you’re traveling on business, especially on someone else’s dime.  But for expensive personal travel, I’d really like something to hold in my hand.
