The Flyover States

Work brought me to Washington DC this week and as I fly home today, I do so passing high above the flyover states.  Throughout, I manage to stay productive – emailing and instant chatting with my coworkers courtesy of technical wizardry that is in-flight WiFi.

By most accounts just another workday, albeit this one high above the clouds.

Room With A View

Yesterday I spent all day flying from San Francisco to Washington DC for a quick work trip.  It was a long day of travel, but at least I have sufficient airline status that I can frequent the American Airlines lounges along the way and use inflight wifi for free.  Combined, these little perks allow for a mostly productive day while cruising at 30,000 feet.

I also have “elite” status with Hilton and Hyatt hotels – a sign that I spend too much time away from my own bed.  The hotels love to market certain perks associated with status … one being upgraded rooms.  Well today I awoke in a Hyatt Regency hotel – in an upgraded room no less, to this million dollar view of a mall parking lot.

Preevning … those precious 2-3 hours between the end of my work day, and start of my work evening.  Also a perfect time to sneak in a ride.

I arrived to London this morning just as the city was awaking.  I’m Halfway to home.
