A friend of mine posted on Facebook the other day that he’d be a lot more productive if every time he typed in "m" in an internet browser window it didn’t finish that entry with a link to the ITA Software website. That got me thinking about my internet browsing habits and wondering just how much of the alphabet is travel focused for me. I’d say 20 out of 26 isn’t bad. Or it is ridiculous. I haven’t actually decided which.
Here’s what my breakdown is (omitting the non-travel letters):
- B – Boarding Area
- D – Delta Air Lines
- F – FlyerTalk.com
- G – gcmap.com, home of awesome mapping tools
- H – Hipmunk.com, one of my new favorite booking tools
- I – ihg.com, home of the Intercontinental Hotel Group
- J – Jetblue
- L – loungeti.me, my airport lounge guide tool
- M – matrix.itasoftware.com, the ITA search portal
- N – newamericanarriving.com; apparently I don’t do much with the letter N since I haven’t visited that site very often
- O – Orbitz
- P – pointshoarder.com, home of our awesome podcast
- Q – qantas.co.au, my go-to resource for oneworld award searches
- R – Ryanair; I’ve only flown them once so I don’t know why this is so high up
- S – SeatGuru; I wish it weren’t true as the data is so bad, but it is there
- T – TripIt; cannot get enough of the itinerary management tool
- U – United.com
- W – wandr.me, the Wandering Aramean Travel Tools homepage
- Y – youtube, where I manage my growing collection of travel videos
- Z – zuji.com.sg; not a lot of Z activities for me
My "A" entry is loosely related to my travels, as is my "E" option. The other few aren’t but I can handle that. I do have to at least pretend to be well rounded, right??
