They say that cats have nine lives but one dog in Georgia got a new lease on life thanks to the Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport Customs Department.

Murray, a beagle was an abused shelter dog, brought to the Northeast Georgia Animal Shelter around a year back in pretty rough shape. Continue reading Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport Adopts Shelter Dog

Win A Trip to the SEC Championship in Atlanta

SEC Championship

Southwest is giving one lucky winner the chance to win a trip for 2 to see the SEC Championship Game, held in Atlanta.

While I haven’t been a fan of college football in years, I’d still love to win this prize to attend the big game. I also happen to like the city of Atlanta and have visited the city each of the past two years. Continue reading Win A Trip to the SEC Championship in Atlanta

A Deli-cious Burger at The General Muir

The General Muir

At the end of April I headed to Atlanta to attend the Freddie Awards which took place at the amazing Delta Flight Museum. During my visit I also took part in a couple of other frequent flyer events including the Delta Jet Drag.

Prior to heading to Atlanta I had come across a restaurant that I had to check out. Thanks to an article from Eater I found out about 21 Must Eat & Best Burgers in America. Considering burgers are one of my favorite foods, I had to get to a place in Atlanta which made the list. Continue reading A Deli-cious Burger at The General Muir

A Visit to the Original Chick-fil-A: Dwarf House

Chick fil A Dwarf House

I wouldn’t consider myself a big fan of fast food but if I had to pick a favorite, my choice would be easy- Chick-fil-A!

(I should probably mention here though that I do love to visit McDonald’s when going to new countries to see what unique items might be on the menu.)

For Memorial Day weekend in 2014, Kim, Lucas and I headed to Atlanta to check out some of what the city had to offer. We didn’t rent a car so we took the local MARTA trains and buses (along with one Uber) to get around.

Since we didn’t have a rental car, we passed on visiting one place that I really wanted to check out. Continue reading A Visit to the Original Chick-fil-A: Dwarf House

A Visit to the CDC Museum- Atlanta, GA

CDC Museum 

Last month I headed to Atlanta with the main purpose being to attend the Freddie Awards.

However, I couldn’t just fly there for an awards ceremony. I had to find some things to do in the area. While I’d also have a chance to drag a Delta jet for a good cause, I wanted to explore more of what Atlanta had to offer.

Prior to attending the Freddies, I arranged for a tour of the Waffle House Museum and I have to say that it was pretty awesome!

I then headed out to tour another odd museum, the CDC Museum. Continue reading A Visit to the CDC Museum- Atlanta, GA

A Visit to the Waffle House Museum

Waffle House Museum

At the end of April I headed to Atlanta for some frequent-traveler related events. The main reason for the visit was to attend the Freddie Awards. I also had a couple of other related events on the agenda with the more interesting one being the Delta Jet Drag.

Prior to heading off to Atlanta, I was surprised to get great customer service from United. However, I did find their text messaging service to be a waste of time.

Whenever I head off on a trip, regardless of the main purpose, I have to do some research to find out what else the area might have to offer. Since I had been to Atlanta just shy of a year before, I had some ideas… Continue reading A Visit to the Waffle House Museum

I’ll Be Dragging A Jet For A Good Cause

Last year I had a great time visiting the Delta Flight Museum which is located at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

When I found out that the Freddie Awards would be held at the museum I knew it was an event that I didn’t want to miss. I’ll be heading to Atlanta on Wednesday afternoon, a day prior to the big awards ceremony.

I was beyond excited and honored to be invited by Ed Pizzarello of the Pizza in Motion blog to participate in an event for a good cause the day after the Freddies, the Delta Jet Drag.

How I Used My $300 United Credit From A Flight Cancellation

United CreditBack in early 2014, Kim, Lucas and I took our first trip of the year to Norway.

Our flight home got cancelled due to an approaching winter storm back in the NYC area. I then wrote more about the situation in the post, Hey United, I want my $158+ back. And then there was a update on that post. As the situation progressed there was even a second update.

After waiting a bit, United got back to me asking for the original receipts for my expenses due to the flight cancellation which I did not have. Continue reading How I Used My $300 United Credit From A Flight Cancellation

Jumping By the Georgia State Capitol

During our visit to Atlanta I was happy to see that the Georgia State Capitol building was located downtown and was easy to get to from some of the other sites.

Over the years I’ve visited quite a few state capitol buildings and definitely wanted to stop by Georgia’s too. I always make sure to get some jumping shots and (if possible), I like to go inside to learn more about the history of the state and the building.

Here are a some of the capitols that I’ve visited:
