Staying Sane on the Road

It’s no secret that I spend a somewhat ridiculous amount of time on the road, so I thought I would share my coping mechanisms for staying sane in the air and on the road.

Aeromexico 787-800; excitement! #Dreamliner @Boeing

I’m really looking forward to being able to take a ride on Aeromexico’s 787 service from New York-JFK to Mexico City, on my way to Cabo San Lucas.

Though this means there are substantially fewer seats in First Class (down to 16 from 20 to 26 depending on configuration), there is an opportunity to fly Delta One … Continue reading “Domestic #DeltaOne on a Boeing 757-200”

Trip Review: Hyatt House, Sorrento Mesa, CA // @HyattTweets @HyattConcierge

I took this as an opportunity to get a few more nights with Hyatt to work on their current Stay More, Play More promotion. I opted for the Hyatt House in Sorrento Mesa: in addition to free parking … Continue reading “Trip Review: Hyatt House, Sorrento Mesa, CA // @HyattTweets @HyattConcierge”
