Sometimes travel is about new and different adventures. Sometimes it is about repeating the most boring or ridiculous habits. And, when done right, it is often a great blend of both.

A new CEO in the wings and a super technical success top this week’s topics, plus Bhutan and a follow-up on what evacuation simulations are really like.
