+Adam Lasnik wrote a great post about one of my favorite Flight Search features.

I am currently in the process of booking flights from the Netherlands to Budapest (Hungary) to attend a wedding of one of my best friends +Merijn van Oijen . I don't care about the airport I depart from (can be Eindhoven, Amsterdam, Rotterdam or even Dusseldorf in Germany), I just want to know Best flight for me. 

The result is great:
https://www.google.nl/flights/#search;f=AMS,NRN,EIN,RTM;t=BUD;d=2015-06-26;r=2015-06-29

I see multiple flights ordered by direct vs indirect, price and across multiple departure airports. 1 Search that would cost me many searches otherwise! The first search result is actually a Tip that tells me that if I leave 1 day earlier I can save money :-)
 
What's up with those 3 letter airport codes, like "FAT"?
With this cool site I just heard about, you can discover the (sometimes weird, sometimes banal) reason behind each code.
http://airportcod.es/

Oh, and FAT = "Fresno Airport Terminal," in case you were wondering.  Yeah, I was hoping for something more interesting, too. :)


Making sure you're searching with the right airports
Nowadays, of course, most flight search engines let you do searches by city names, but that has its own challenges.  How do you know you're selecting the airport -- or airports -- with the best flight options?

With Google Flights (http://www.google.com/flights), start by typing in a city name, and then optionally click the little + icon next it (see image).  You'll then instantly learn about nearby airports and how far they are from the city center... and can add one or more to your search.

I'm a Program Manager working on Google Flights and am always curious to hear your thoughts and questions about the service. :-)

Happy traveling!

Super cool road trip through the US. Hits all States and major landmarks, involves ~10 days and nights of non stop driving (suggestion of author is to spread it over 3 months at least).
Randy Olson shows you how to compute an epic road trip across the U.S.

Fascinating read!

This article highlights several of the startups that develop and distribute e.g. burgers that have more nutritional value, and taste as good as meat burgers (or chicken strips etc).

Over the years, my family has been reducing the amount of meat we eat significantly, as there are many great alternatives.

Mexican omelet tacos were great, and blueberry pancake was excellent.

Had lunch with my wife here. Great views over the marina, from the second floor. Food was excellent: fresh oysters as appetizer, tuna (large beautifully crusted portion), and mixed seafood grill (3 types of fish) as entrees, paired with regional gewürztraminer. Well recommended!

Highly recommended store. Skilled and knowledgeable staff that is helpful, and non pushy. Very helpful and efficient Drossing of less common handgun bought out of state. Out of many Peninsula stores, this one is my favorite.

Had our Christmas dinner here, with 2 adults and 2 kids. The big portions are great for sharing, and we all enjoyed the well prepared dishes. Highlight was the eggplant parmigiana side dish... OMG, I finished it as breakfast the next day!

Very good hotel, conveniently located for business visits to Cambridge. Every room has solid wifi (Apple wifi routers in each room), good beds, and decent size rooms.

One thing Trader Joe's is particularly amazing at is their house label chocolates. Great quality, very well balanced, non-commercial (e.g. cheap, milk, sugary) flavors. Well worth the exploration!

My wife had fish, which she really liked. The "angus" was not so special (3 stars).
