My Weird Obsession With Hotel Slippers

My Weird Obsession With Hotel Slippers

Whenever I'm on the road I always travel light. So light, that I can usually fit all of my things into a single backpack. The only downside to this packing technique is it doesn't leave me with much room to bring anything home. I'm not much a of souvenir guy anyways,  but if there is one thing I always manage to squeeze in there, it's hotel slippers.

My Experience Getting Bumped on Delta Airlines

My Experience Getting Bumped on Delta Airlines

My brother, Adam, and I just finished up our trip to Toronto, Canada last weekend. We both had great time and I was really impressed with Toronto, but I'll have more on that later. On Tuesday we were scheduled to fly home from Toronto (YYZ) to Omaha (OMA) via Detroit (DTW).

I Booked My First Stay at a Shangri-La Hotel

I'm going to be taking my brother, Adam, to Toronto in a few weeks for his college graduation present. We're going to spend four nights there so I'd originally booked us a room at the Toronto Marriott City Centre Hotel. It's not the most aspirational property so I've been keeping an eye out for a better deal as our trip draws near.
