Weekly Review: August 22, 2015

Filed Under: Weekly Review

Hello from somewhere between the US and Dubai (be sure you’re following along on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter for up to the minute Dom 2005-induced coverage)! It has been an insane week of domestic travel for me. It wouldn’t look that bad on a map, but I’ve had four days of domestic flying this week, all of which started at 6-7AM. That’s much more tolling than circling the globe in a week, in my opinion.

Add in some issues I was dealing with in Florida, and I’m certainly in need of a nap. Nonetheless, I’m off on a fun adventure, though it’s an abbreviated version of what I initially had planned. More on that shortly!
