  • Traveling Through 2020 (Part 1)

    I thought about making a new “year end” post every year. Even up until today I thought I had only missed on year of these but it looks like the last one was in 2013. Yikes. It’s funny to start this back up again in a year which looked to be my biggest year of […]

  • Traveling Through 2013

    In my travel roundup of 2012 I was hoping to travel a bit more internationally this year. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. It’s funny too, as I finally broke down and was approved for the Global Entry program. A big bonus of the program is qualifying for the TSA Pre-Check line when flying participating airlines. I […]

  • A Few Days in Midtown

    Every time I am sent to Jersey City for work I try to make the most of it, visiting Manhattan, because I never know when I’ll be back. Somehow I’ve been to New Jersey seven times this year so far but I never run out of things to see. I’ve even bought an out-of-state membership […]

  • January in New York

    I found myself working in New Jersey twice in January this year. When I’m there I try to make it over to Manhattan for museums and shopping, but this time I visited Brooklyn for the first time. Meeting up with a friend who grew up there he laughed at the fact that I picked Williamsburg, […]

  • Traveling Through 2012

    Despite my lack of updates, I managed to take quite a few trips this year. Only a few were non-work related but I try my best to spend a little time in each city I visit. Both St. Louis and Detroit trips were in and out in one day, but I always arrange extra time […]

  • Jersey City Cartwheel

    The “Where I Slept” series will return, I promise. In the meantime I’ve been working and recently spent a week in New Jersey. Despite walking by a PATH station to NYC twice a day I never made it to Manhattan. However, I did manage a new cartwheel in front of the financial district and new […]

  • All I Could Jet 2010

    After more than 39 hours in the air and nearly 19,000 miles flown across 15 flights I’ve gotten my money’s worth out of Jet Blue’s All You Can Jet promotion. With that much flying I had the in-flight commercials memorized and had no problem deciding what snacks to choose (plantain chips are interesting but you […]

  • All You Can Jet Layovers at JFK

    There is a reason I haven’t flown jetBlue before—it has very few direct flights from Chicago. I’ve already connected through Boston and New York a number of times and I will admit that the jetBlue terminal at JFK is gorgeous. I certainly didn’t mind waiting for an hour surrounded by modern design, an extraordinary number […]

  • NYC for a Day

    Originally I planned to spend a day in Baltimore and fly to Chicago in the late morning. Once I decided to spend that day in D.C. another plan presented itself—New York City. Although this trip was meant to be about seeing new places flying out of Dulles gave me the option to connect through JFK […]

  • Jetting on jetBlue

    My first leg of jetBlue’s All You Can Jet is finished and it was pretty exciting. Washington D.C. was so amazing that I changed my flight at the last minute to skip Baltimore and stay in D.C. another day. Since my friend was flying out at 6am on an adventure of her own I ended […]
