I found this breakfast voucher from my hotel in Copenhagen this morning and gave it to my husband. He made me an omelette. #Winning. I have the best husband. I also have 4 more vouchers... 😀
Posts on getting there, being there, and getting back home again. Oh, and also some tips on the logistics of travel as I discover new things that make travel more enjoyable.
Hotel conveniences I wish I had at home
Several years ago, I stayed at a resort in Cyprus and fell in love with a small chest that sat on the bedside table. Open the lid and you see a map of the room with little buttons that let me turn on and off all the lights in the room and the fan, all … Continue reading Hotel conveniences I wish I had at home
Always drink tap water
I know it looks like a carton of milk, but it's tap water. The other side of the carton lists some compelling reasons why one should always drink tap water but they forgot to add "so your hotel in Copenhagen can sell you tap water." It's priced at around 25kr (roughly $4USD). 😀
Good Luck Frog
Everyone needs a nice gold-plated good luck frog, right? #hotel-bling
Hej from Copenhagen!
I'm in Copenhagen for a conference but managed to find a little free time this afternoon to see a bit of the city. Really lovely city - very clean, well-maintained, pedestrian-friendly, etc and yes, very cold (at least for this Floridian) with temperatures hovering between low 40s and near-freezing in mid-March. I have to say … Continue reading Hej from Copenhagen!
Dear American Airlines, what’s up giving people free Gold status?
My husband, who rarely flies, received this offer for free Gold status from the nice folks at American Airlines. And I have to say, it leaves me rather cold and angry since I had to earn my status the hard way - by putting my butt in their uncomfortable chairs for at least 25,000 miles … Continue reading Dear American Airlines, what’s up giving people free Gold status?
Miami in January
Last weekend, we took a trip to Miami (with a brief side trip to Key Largo and Islamorada) to visit some of my family. It's been years since I have been down to South Florida and I'm not sure why. It's a pretty good drive for us, but nonetheless, we were way overdue for a … Continue reading Miami in January
2016: the year of travel
As with just about every other year, 2016 had its share of ups and downs; however, many of mine this year were literal ups and downs in the form of takeoffs and landings. For me, 2016 was The Year of Travel. As I've mentioned before, I work for Automattic, a fully distributed company, which means … Continue reading 2016: the year of travel
European vacation: 4 countries in 2.5 weeks
London, Paris, Rome, and Vienna in 2.5 weeks - crazy but fun!
London (and other points of interest) Calling
Our first stop in our 4-county European tour was London. After an overnight flight in which only one of us slept (I am convinced my daughter can sleep anywhere under any conditions, and yes, I envy that), we arrived sleepy but excited. Fortunately, I had been to London earlier this year, so I was familiar … Continue reading London (and other points of interest) Calling
