"Why would anyone from Michigan want to visit Columbus?" That's what I thought before I visited this past spring. As the college football season progressed, it became evident that Michigan was on a collision course to face OSU for the Big Ten Championship.
It's not all about South Beach when it comes to Miami. There are many great areas of Miami including Brickell, the next most livable city after Scottsdale, Arizona. Brickell is the financial district of Miami which is why it has high end hotels like the Mandarin Oriental, the Four Seasons, and the Conrad.
Welcome to Tahiti everyone. Specifically, welcome to the big island of French Polynesia and Le Méridien. Don't bother unpacking your stuff as most of you will only be staying here for one night or two depending on when you arrived to Papeete and when you depart for one of the other islands.
Saturday in Vegas was UFC 200. It was the start of NBA Summer League. I was also slated to arrive at 12:30AM in Vegas.

Shanghai is my favorite city in the world. It also is home to some of the best hotels in the world. One of my new favorite hotels is Twelve at Hengshan which is part of the SPG Luxury Collection. It's located in the French Concession right next to the metro station.
It was a long bumpy, hungover ride from Las Vegas, to Witchita Kansas, to St. Louis, to Newark on the way back from the Freddies. A minor oversight had lead me to miss my single connection flight at 6 that morning. After that arduous journey, I took an Uber from EWR to JFK for $63.
