Hola! If you're following me on FacebookInstagramTwitter, and/or Periscope, you know my wife (@NatalieDiScala) and I are currently in Miami! We just got off of Norwegian Escape, which is the newest ship sailing the high seas. We had so much fun on the two-day preview cruise—and you can get a glimpse of it by checking out this video of us zipping down one of the water slides.
 
Old AA plane
Getting to Miami wasn’t that much fun because I made the rookie mistake of booking us on one of American Airlines’ old 767s. It was a mistake because not only are these planes old and lacking Wi-Fi or electrical outlets (unless you have an AC adaptor), but they also need a lot more maintenance, which we learned the hard way. We were delayed by almost three hours (no big deal since these things happen) and the way they delayed it was frustrating. They kept pushing departure back by 20 minutes at a time, stringing us along. But I’m not complaining because we made it safely and rather comfortably (row 11 has the best coach seats).
 
In the end, I was able to catch up on some of my work and published a few stories. Here they are as promised:
36 Hours in St. Louis
Best Western Plus in New York City
