Back home! I boarded my flight from NYC early this afternoon. It was the perfect day to leave since it was a most rainy day in New York. But I had a smooth cab ride and the most perky flight attendant ever on my flight. He was super cheerful ... Read more >

1:45 a.m. PST Seattle.  Last night when I was checking in for my flight I was changing seats and deciding between window or aisle.  For < 3.5 hour flights I always pick the window seat because I avoid the bathroom like the plague.  Since this was ... Read more >
