I’ve returned to the DC sauna (Lord, it’s hot here today), after a successful week in Atlanta.  My week started like all travel weeks should with an upgrade to First Class.  Then I checked in at the W Atlanta Midtown, and enjoyed a great 4-night stay.  And then my week ended like all weeks should….you guessed it, with an upgrade to First Class.  And with all that, somewhere between Atlanta and Washington, I renewed my Delta Medallion status for 2011 by crossing the 25,000 mile threshold for Silver Medallion status.  That’s lowly status, but trust me, it’s helped and I appreciate it.

There wasn’t a whopping lot of news in travel to talk about this week.  About the most exciting thing I saw was this:

Shot by none other than Dan Webb.  Thankfully, all involved walked away unscathed.

On June 28th, Mrs MJonTravel and I will board an American Airlines flight to Rome.  As far as I know, I will have no business trips between now and then, so evenings will be dedicated to finalizing trip plans, and getting jazzed about the idea of being on vacation for THREE WEEKS!  We spend a few days in Rome, and then board Celebrity Equinox for an 11-night Mediterranean holiday.  To say I can’t wait for that would be a mild understatement.

I’ll be blogging all the way through, so stay tuned for exciting details about the trip, and my first opportunity to review American’s much maligned Business Class seat on an international flight.
