“Traveling allows you to become so many different versions of yourself.”—Unknown
I pull from a large library of travel quotes for these newsletters, always seeking to highlight those that I can draw a connection with. This week’s anonymous quote seems fitting, as I’ve just returned home after a couple of weeks on the road and trips to Juneau, Atlanta and Lake Tahoe. In each destination, I was a different person — or rather, each city brought out different components of my personality.
I have always considered Atlanta to be a “no nonsense” city, and I had to assume that persona when my hotel left me stranded at the airport. Although the ADA requires hotel shuttles to be wheelchair accessible, staff told me there was nothing to do except cancel my reservation. Ha! I did not back down from the fight and was ultimately accommodated at another hotel (at their expense).
