Adam's World, a Blog

Welcome to Adam's World, a Blog. These are my personal ramblings, and I make no guarantee to their cohesiveness. Enjoy reading my ramblings and if the mood strikes you feel free to leave a comment or two.

I want to get away, I want to fly away.

So a few weeks ago, I purchased a JetBlue “All You Can Jet” airline pass.  For those that don’t know, JetBlue sells a pass allowing you to travel unlimited times to any location JetBlue flies to for 30 days starting the day after labor day.

At first, I was a little unsure about it but after reading stories of people doing it last year I was hooked. When I started booking flights, I got this giant feeling of adventure – like I wanted to see everything. That wasn’t possible, but after many many (many many) hours of piecing things together, I built what I thought to be a perfect itinerary. So, here goes:

  • Sept 7 – Long Beach, CA to Seattle, WA
  • Sept 9 – Seattle, WA to Charlotte, NC
  • Sept 11 – Charlotte, NC to Aruba
  • Sept 14 – Aruba to Los Angeles
  • Sept 16 – Los Angeles to San Juan, Puerto Rico
  • Sept 18 – San Juan, Puerto Rico to Orlando, FL
  • Sept 21 – Orlando, FL to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic
  • Sept 23 – Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic to New York, NY
  • Sept 25 – New York, NY to San Jose, Costa Rica
  • Sept 27 – San Jose, Costa Rica to Portland, ME
  • Sept 28 – Portland, ME to Washington, DC
  • Sept 30 – Washington DC to Ft. Myers, FL
  • Oct 2 – Ft. Myers, FL to Buffalo, NY
  • Oct 4 – Buffalo, NY to Los Angeles, CA
  • For a more detailed look at this itinerary, you can check it out right over here.

Total miles: 31,204

Whew, quite a journey! I am traveling most of it alone, and meeting up with certain people along the way for shared hotels, dinner, etc thanks in part to JetBlue’s awesome Facebook page.

I’m putting most of my focus on the international destinations since those would be the places I would most likely not be able to get to in the near future. For example, in Costa Rica I plan on staying at this amazing hollowed out 727 airplane hotel room called the 727 Fuselage Home.

How awesome is this hotel room? *Stock Photo*

Also in Costa Rica I plan on taking a visit to the Arenal Volcano. It’s the largest active volcano in the world, and taking a hike after-dark allows to see lava. REAL F’N LAVA! How awesome is that?

One of the purposes of me setting up this blog is that I hope to post as frequently as I can, where ever I happen to be. Maybe a photo, maybe a story – who knows. I want to use this as my personal journal during this trip, and I’d love for you to come along! Comment if you like something, comment if you don’t like something. I will be checking them daily (as free WiFi allows, anyway).

So tomorrow starts a trip of a lifetime!

    This looks like an awesome month of adventure. I look forward to any pictures you have to post. The stay in the 727 looks like it will be well worth the trip. Such gorgeous wood details.
