When I was on Masterchef…

First of all, please allow me to go all emo on this post, so you probably shouldn't read it if you are on Prozac.

Wine tasting at 38,000ft on Emirates Business Class

100 years ago, when cars were as rare as hens teeth, it would be quite an adventure to travel 20 miles in a day maybe on foot, or if you was lucky, by horse and cart.  Fast forward to today and modern day transportation is letting us travel farther and faster than...
