2017 Travel in Review

On September 18th, 2017, I started my dream job with Software2.  After just a short 3 months, I accumulated quite a few travel miles and of course photos.  :-)  These are my stats and below are some of highlight photos for the last quarter of 2017.  Happy New Year, everyone!

Travel Days = 26
Flight Legs = 24 (most destinations for me require 2 flight legs)
Cities = 16 (Syracuse / Seattle / New Rochelle, NY / Rolla / Pittsburg / KS / Philly / Indy / Manchester, Lancaster, Leeds, Plymouth, UK /Toronto, Kitchener, Barrie, CA / Ann Arbor / Dearborn)
Countries = 3 (including the US)


My first customer visit was to my old employer, Le Moyne College!

Then a quick drive to Iona College (just 30 mins north of NYC.)

Then out to Seattle for a conference with my boss, Dave.

Found this spot in Seattle!

A view of Mount Rainier from the plane.

Down to Philly for another conference.

It's always fun to see the hotels we stay in decorate for the holidays.  This was a Halloween display in Philly.

A classic Pace Car at the Indy airport.

Sunrise from the plane over England!

One of the many hotels I stayed in while visiting England.  (And yes, the little dog came home with me!)

Another sunset from the plane.

A plane reflection shot, while headed up to Canada.

Christmas display at my hotel in Michigan.

Another "Kerry" spot in Ann Arbor, Michigan!

Final sunset shot on my last flight of the year, just before landing back in Ithaca and going home.

Can't wait to see what 2018 brings!
