United AirlinesI just came across some very interesting info on a way that United Airlines plans to save some money while also going a bit green.

This sounds like a great way to take recycling to a new level. Continue reading

Back in 2013 Delta opened a nice outdoor space at the Sky Club at JFK Airport called the Sky Deck. Check out my post about it here.

Today was a big day at JFK Airport as a new outdoor space opened by JetBlue at T5. Best of all is that the T5 Rooftop is open to all- no lounge membership or status needed! Continue reading

Photo Ban Lifted On White House Tours

White House Tours

I don’t know about you but when I hear that photos aren’t allowed when visiting museums or other attractions it almost makes me not want to visit. For me, getting photos of sites is a fun part of the experience and of course I love to have them to remember what I saw and did.

Rehash

Hello all! We’re currently on our first trip of the summer and writing from Nicaragua!

We had a 3 hour layover before flying the additional hour or so to Managua… Continue reading
