The Bulkhead Seat started on December 1st of last year. It’s largely a labor of love as bloggers don’t make the millions people think they do. I find myself reflecting this morning on what I’m thankful for this year and there is a lot when it comes to this site.

The Bulkhead Seat

Less than one year ago, I joined BoardingArea and launched this site. Most of my career has been in media (either as an editor or for the past 17 years as an advertising sales leader). The blog felt natural and brought together my passion for travel with the knowledge I’ve gained through the years in the media and publishing space.

I’m humbled to see thousands of people reading my posts, commenting, sharing memories, and hopefully learning something. I will never claim to know everything about travel (I learn something new each day), but I have visited over 80 countries, stayed thousands of nights in hotels, and flown over 3,000,000 miles. Along the way, I’ve devoured scores of information from FlyerTalk, news sites, and other bloggers. I’m grateful that I can write about what I want every day and that people actually come to read it. Thank You!

I’m also thankful that I have the means and time to travel. There is no replacement for getting out into the world to experience its foods, people, culture, history, and more. I have seen a lot, but the list of where to go next never seems to shrink. You can travel on any budget and I urge everyone to just go. We’ll be heading to Luxembourg and Budapest tonight after we eat our turkey.

Dad Thanksgiving

On a more personal note, I’m thankful for my friends, husband, and family. Without them, life would not be the adventure that it is each day. I lost my dad three years ago in February 2021 to cancer. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about him and many others that I’ve lost through the years. I’m thankful for the time we had together, but also think it was cut too short.

Please take a moment to reflect today on all that you have to be thankful for and once again, I thank you for all of the articles you’ve read, comments you’ve made, and things you’ve taught me along the way. Enjoy time with friends and family as the moments are fleeting. I look forward to continuing to push out content and interact with many more of you.

Anthony’s Take: I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving and hope that you also have lots to be thankful for this year.

Glad you joined BA. You write well and have a different perspective, which is always refreshing.
