5-year workiversary, looking back


Wow… It’s hard to believe I’ve been working as a travel agent for 5 years.  If you add the 18 months I worked for an airline, that puts me at over 6 years in the industry.  I haven’t done nearly as much travelling as I would have liked, but that is largely due to the fact that getting my passport keeps slipping my mind. 

However, during my career, I have managed to make a few trips.  Las Vegas, NV is always one of my favorite destinations.  Although my visits there have never gone as planned.  I still haven’t managed to go during a time when I was able to ride the roller coasters.  But playing roulette at Barbary Coast on the strip is one of my favorite things!

I’ve visited friends everywhere from Colorado Springs and Puebla, CO to Houston, TX, to Jacksonville, NC. 

I managed to get myself and a good chunk of my family stuck in Lewiston, ID.  Don’t ask… it’s a long story.  The short of it is that we were all on our way to a Seahawk’s game.  Due to unforseen circumstances with another airline’s crew, we were bumped from our flight and spent the night watching the game in Lewiston in our hotel.

My family has taken a road trip down to Phoenix, AZ.  We went to see BSU play in the Fiesta Bowl.  That was pretty fun!  The Grand  Canyon is absolutely gorgeous!  You can’t fathom how big it actually looks and feels until you stand on the edge.   I, personally, had never really been that interested in seeing it.  But when we were actually there, I sure changed my tune!  It is breathtaking.  Here’s a picture, although I know it doesn’t even do it justice. 

I’ve also been on a FAM(familiarization trip) to Detroit, MI.  We didn’t leave the airport, but it was very interesting to spend the day getting a tour of the inner workings of such a major airport. 

Next trip was down to Charlotte, NC to visit a dear friend of mine.  We had a grand ol’ time!  I had the best sushi of my life and, believe it or not, at some point I found myself dancing to some song called “Sic ’em on a chicken.”  Good times were had by all!

I’ve gone to my family reunion in Union, OR.  That probably qualifies for its own post.  I love my family!  They’re fun, crazy, loving people.  I always enjoy spending time with them.  We don’t see each other as often as we would like, but we do make the most of our time together when we do!

I’ve also been to Jackpot, NV a few times.  It’s a lot closer than Las Vegas.  So it’s a nice spot to drive down to, have dinner, gamble a little, then head home before I break my bank. 

So, I haven’t travelled as much as I would have liked to over the years.  But then again, in order for that to happen I would have to win a high enough lottery that I can retire and spend my days exploring the world.  But I have managed to get out there a few times.  It’s always an adventure, always an amazing time.
