One Secret Trick to Pay Half Price for the JFK AirTrain

Like most New Yorkers, I absolutely hate paying for the AirTrain when I need to go to JFK airport. I pay quite enough each month on my MetroCard as is so knowing I need to take a $10 hit just for making a round-trip to the airport is never any fun. Amazingly, there is a […]

The Best Sushi in New York in an Unexpected Place

If it weren’t for the cost and our own inability to make it, Chandra and I would have no problem eating Japanese food every single day. It’s by far our favorite cuisine  and for that reason we are always on the look out for truly delicious sushi. For a city with nearly as many sushi […]

Why you should volunteer to get bumped

Warning: this doesn’t always work, but when it does…it is so so worth it 🙂 Returning on Air France from a whirlwind trip around the Czech Republic, Hungary and the Balkans, Dave and I had a layover in Paris on our way back to New York.  The layover was short, certainly not enough time to […]

Travel for Appreciation

San Francisco is by no means geographically far from New York, but that doesn’t change the fact that the city is just different – the landscape, the vibe, the people – all different. Lately I’ve been down on NY and thinking there had to be something better than being cooped up in an office building […]
