View From the Wing is the first travel blog I ever read. Nowadays there are hundreds I peruse each week, but View from the Wing one of my favorites. Gary with View from the Wing has always blown me away with his keen ability to clarify a fuzzy airline situation or poetically call out a hotel chain with succinct wording when something needs a sharp eye. With his finger on the pulse of the industry, he doesn’t shy away from telling it like is. He also has a witty sense of humor, and from time to time I find a story or link on his blog that cracks me up.

One of his links earlier this week was to a story by The Daily Mail on ultimate hotel fails. I don’t know about you, but I found some of them hilarious!
