“Pasillo, medio, o ventana?” The man working at the Aerolineas Argentinas check-in desk asks me as I place my big blue suitcase on the scale.
I give him a look that says, “Are you kidding me?” He chuckles.
“Lo siento,” he replies through a knowing smile. “Pasillo o ventana?”
And there it is. I’m convinced that there’s two types of people in this world: the window-seat people and the aisle-seat people.
“Originally curated to connect our global community, the Travelling Bag is passed from traveler to traveler, encouraging each new owner to delve deeper into the place they’re exploring, to focus on traveling against the norm and creating meaningful connections with the places they visit.
For its next journey, the Travelling Bag joins outdoor-lifestyle and landscape photographer, Emily Boe-Lee. With curiosity as her compass, she embarks on a un-mapped road-trip through the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. Along the way, she discovers a sense of freedom that only the open road can offer. “
Over the past few weeks, I had the tremendous pleasure of working with Millican – a UK based company – and being a part of their Travelling Bag Project!
With no map, no plan, and just an itch for adventure, I took off to Colorado in search of the open road. Read the full story on Millican’s website: https://www.homeofmillican.com/blogs/journal/travel-the-travelling-bag-project-a-rocky-mountain-road-trip#article
Bucket-list item #46: Take a doors-off helicopter ride.
A couple weeks ago, FlyNYON helped me and my good friend Aly check this one off.
After arriving in New York City, we were shuttled to the heliport. Aly and I were both shaking with excitement the whole way there. I think that any fear we would have had (despite Aly and I both being adrenaline-junkies) was completely negated by the surrealness that, yes, we were about to take a helicopter tour over the city.
Just got back from the dopest cabin stay ever. This little guy is probably the cutest open-air cabin in all of Vermont:
(Those string lights are the best.)
Tanglebloom Cabin is the perfect “glamping” spot nestled away on the prettiest Vermont flower farm. A firepit, screened in walls, a squeaky clean outhouse, privacy thanks to the beautiful surrounding forest… What more could you ask for? Finn and I agree that this little gem couldn’t have been better. Waking up to the sounds of wildlife and the warm sun shining in felt like heaven on earth.
