Here’s to safe travels – and lots of adventures – in the New Year.
Before we turn the page, here are some links to some of the airport and travel-related stories I had fun working on this past year.
With more states legalizing pot in 2018, I tackled the topic of flying with marijuana.
With United Airlines, I traveled to Bogota, Columbia to follow Mother’s Day Roses from the farm, onto the airplane and through customs at George Bush Interncontinental Airport.
I spent a day at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport following the journey a checked bag takes once it is checked in at the counter.
And I visited Portland International Airport and talked with airports around the country for a story on the uninvited wildlife – from worms to whales – that shows up at airport, and what airport wilfdife teams do to keep animals away.
I also tracked down the first airport hotel and put together a short history of airport hotels.
Suggestions for topics to tackle in the 2019 always welcome!
