In case you missed it, here’s the weekly recap of what we’ve been talking about on Jetsetter’s Homestead:

We touched on some of the tough aspects of travel…

seat assignments that suck and…

cities that aren’t welcoming as well as…

… less than speedy hotel WiFi

We shared news about American Airlines/US Airways meal service alignments

… and a review of the Courtyard by Marriott in Richland, WA.

We love contests and posted a few of our favorites for this summer…

… and launched a mini contest of our own…

… which may or may not see us eating Endless Appetizers at TGI Fridays.

And thinking about leisure time, we reviewed our latest box from Stitch Fix

… and discussed a survey on switching into off mode for vacation.

Speaking of vacations, this coming week we’ll talk a little bit about maintaining work/life balance while doing that “switch off” and I’ll share a little bit about where I’ve been the past week or so (once we dig out from the mountain of mail and luggage).

Looking forward to it…
