Diddy Spends Thousands on Private Jet for Luggage

Usually, I wouldn’t bother opening the forwarded crap my friends feel the need to flood my email with, but this one caught my eye. Why? Because it is travel related and I thought even if I didn’t want to know or care there is someone out there drooling and waiting for this type of material to pop up in the blogosphere. In other words it is my loyal duty to Diddy lovers across the planet to spread the news.

So where was I? Ah, Yes…If all the world could have the luxury of spending $16,200 dollars on a private jet to have their excess Louis Vuitton luggage transported from France to Rome, what might the world be like? Apparently Diddy (also known as P. Diddy, Puff Daddy, & Sean Combs) dropped this kind of dough on a private jet when he was informed there wasn’t enough room on his private flight to lug it all.

Lifestyles of the rich and famous – I just don’t get it at times. Diddy if you’re out there listening or reading I’d love to skate off to France and Rome. I’m more than willing to stay in hostels and pay my airfare over if you’d like to donate $16,200 to SallieMae, my sweet student loan provider – yeah. Um, call me.

Anguilla: Where The Stars Come Out

The Chicago
Tribune is featuring an article by Rosemary
, a Los Angeles Times staff writer who went on assignment to the Caribbean island of Anguilla, fast becoming
the hottest vacation spot for the Hollywood jetset.  She admits she was shocked to find that Anguilla isn’t a
tropical paradise — it was, in her words, rather "homely" — but what it lacks in verdent beauty it
apparently makes up for in elegant luxury.  Besides, the island has apparently become a favourite of the likes of
Sean "Diddy" Combs and Meryl Streep — surely they can’t be wrong.

Anyway, if you’re interested in
a Caribbean island vacation, be sure to check the article
— and don’t miss, at the very end of the piece, McClure’s travel tips and where to stay.

Tobago Jazz Festival

Our family is planning on visiting Tobago in
the next couple of weeks — my mother-in-law is planning on being in town from Cornwall to visit, and we thought we’d
take her over to Trinidad’s sister island for a little rest-and relaxation.  As luck would have it, it turns out
that the weekend we’re planning to go is the same weekend as the Tobago Jazz

This is only the second year of the festival (scheduled for April 21st — 23rd), but check out
the names slated to headline:  Sting, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Patti LaBelle, Natalie Cole, and Vanessa
Williams, not to mention local superstar Machel Montano, just to name a few.  Be sure to check out the official
website (www.tobagojazzfest.com) for more information.

like my mother-in-law may have to do a bit of babysitting one night.
