I’m currently at EWR about to board for a semi-impulsive solo-trip to Europe that I had to fight for, literally. We like to keep things fun in our family, and there’s never a dull moment.
As much as I’d love to say that my other half is really into miles and points like I am, he’s crazy about Brazilian Jui Jitsu instead… and that’s something I have never been able to “get into”. I very am supportive of his hobby, but I have always turned down his offers to train with him because the thought of rolling around on a mat with sweaty people is not exactly my cup of tea.
A few weeks ago he half-jokingly challenged me with an offer that I simply could not refuse: if I could survive a full two hours of Brazilian Jui Jitsu, then I could take a trip of my choosing. I mean if Demi Lovato and Anthony Bourdain can do it, I guess I can, right?All I can say was that this might the only 70K United mile redemption that left me sweaty, nauseous, and out of breath. But I’m really excited to try Austrian’s business class product for the first time… and a night at the Park Hyatt Vienna. What’s the craziest thing you’ve done for the love of travel?
And what should I do with 23 hours in Vienna tomorrow?
