So a couple years back I "won" in an auction two round-trip tickets anywhere in the continental US for $500. It was at a fundraiser event for my wife's organization, and at the time I thought we could have probably gotten cheaper fares than that through Expedia. Now I know we got a good deal given skyrocketing airfare prices.
We chose to go to Albequerque: I wanted to see New Mexico and US Air doesn't fly to Sante Fe. So in March we'll be spending a bit more than a week tooling around in the Southwest. Yippee! Hot food. Cold mojitos. Anastazi ruins, caves, and deserts.
I need to add more US travel to my travels. I've seen shockingly little given my world travel experience.
