Onward to T-Mobile!

After fourteen years with Verizon (and hundreds of dollars paid unnecessarily on insurance deductibles even though the manufacturer admitted responsibility), I made the jump to T-Mobile’s ONE plan. First of all, I can’t begin to express the shock my girlfriend and experienced when talking to the T-Mobile reps (on both Twitter and in the store) … Continue reading “Onward to T-Mobile!”

New Camera!

It’s not news that I have a bit of a problem when it comes to technology… I really like my toys! I even like reading about toys I have no intention of buying (curse you, responsibilities!), just to geek out over the underlying hardware. After playing with my girlfriend’s Canon DSLR, I was quite impressed … Continue reading “New Camera!”

Lovely Surprise from @BarclaycardUS

Last week I received a surprising email from Barclaycard – they were sending me a luggage tag! I had no idea what to expect, and I hadn’t heard of others receiving similar tags, so when it arrived just a couple of days later I was even more surprised. The tag itself is very solidly built … Continue reading “Lovely Surprise from @BarclaycardUS”

Delta Schedule Change Fallout

Schedule changes are really no surprise in the travel game, but they are decidedly not fun. A few days ago I received an automated call from Delta to let me know that there was a schedule change that would make one of my connections in an upcoming trip illegal. Taking a deep breath, I logged … Continue reading “Delta Schedule Change Fallout”

@Delta’s Narrow Wide-Body, the Domestic 767-300

Delta has a handful of Boeing 767-300 (not ER or LR, mind you) that have their first class in a 2x2x2 configuration. These seats are standard recline only, not angled or lie-flat as other … Continue reading “@Delta’s Narrow Wide-Body, the Domestic 767-300”

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. Though my main source of entertainment is my phone (music, movies, podcasts… it does it all!), I also love having my … Continue reading “Staying Sane 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. Thanks to stockpiled Citi ThankYou and Chase Ultimate Rewards points, I was able to book two business class tickets for half the price I would spend, otherwise. … Continue reading “Aeromexico 787-800; excitement! #Dreamliner @Boeing”
