you know, the person who is constantly looking at the bottom sticker on CNN or has the app on their phone telling him/her of every stock, the high and the lows, the closing prices, etc.
well, I sort of have a similar obsession with plane tickets. I know it's kinda weird but I love spending time on kayak looking at airfares. I like to look at different routes and see what fares have gone up what fares have gone down. I like to go on this dream "flights" and just like to wonder how much it would be to fly here or to fly there. Not only do I like to look at different routes, I also like to know what type of plane is covering a particular route. So for example I know that I'd have a much better chance of flying in the new Airbus A-800 (double decker jumbo) if I fly Emirates or if I go to Paris from DC as opposed to Newark. I know it's weird but I can't help it. I wanted to be a pilot and have been obsessed with flying ever since the day I saw a plane for the first time.
But because it seems like it might be a couple of weeks until I get to be in one of man's most incredible inventions (planes that is :) , I had to come up with a different type of flying. Something that would help with the cravings of being up in the air. Lucky for me, I live in a wonderful city that provides the most epic conditions to get that kind of temporary fix :=)
