Monte Carlo or bust!

Well it was one of those crazy weekends when it seemed that everyone woke up that morning and needed to be at the Monaco Grand Prix, as you do.  And actually taking a private jet was probably the only way to do it.  I don’t know whether you noticed, but the commercial carriers prices were […]
