Staying connected while traveling

Wanna see where I am RIGHT NOW? Click Here. This will show my location for the past 7 days. If you don’t see any location information, that means I haven’t used the device in 7 days. During my recent trip to Boston, I learned of a snazzy little device called “Spot.” It comes from the wonderful people at Spot LLC.

Getting the cheapest airline ticket

Since my travel planning began a few months ago (quit my job, sold nearly everything I owned, rented my house, and found my way to south east asia without breaking the bank), I’ve learned a TON of travel trips. Today we’re gonna focus on one aspect of getting from point A to point B: airline travel. There are a lot of travel agencies, online discount ticket services, and “deals” to... read more

I got up here early in the morning so I could take my... read more

What to do while in Boston

Boston is truly a beautiful and diverse city. There are adventures for everyone no matter what you’re into both in and within a short drive from downtown Boston. I’ve spent the last two days wandering around and found quite a few really cool things: 1. Cambridge – MIT has some incredible architecture that will floor you. Shown here is the Strata Center. 2. Harvard – TONS of old... read more

My adventures in Boston

As an aircraft mechanic, travel is always a possibility, but not always an option. Most days (99% of the time) I spend my time driving to the same hangar at the same airport doing the same inspections over and over again on the same airplanesĀ (notice the potential for monotony?). An opportunity was mentioned a couple weeks ago to spend some time in Boston setting up a new base to make sure a new series of... read more
