I'm A Boring Traveler

Published September 14, 2017

I am sitting in a United Airlines lounge at LAX waiting for my plane to get back to Newark by Friday morning.  I travel on average once a month but I am a boring traveler. 

When I travel, I normally go from the airport to the hotel, speak, back to hotel, speak more and then go back to the airport to head home and to my office.  Normally when I go to the west coast, I'll take a red eye flight back and when I land at 6am, I go straight to the office without stopping at home.

Today was different, I had a few hours before heading home and got most of my work done before I spoke, so I decided to stop off on the way to LAX to Pico Boulevard where they have a nice number of quality kosher restaurants.  When I was in the Lyft on the way to one of those restaurants, I saw Schwartz's sign. So after I ate, I took a picture of myself standing in front of the sign.  Then I got a new Lyft and went to the airport - where I am writing this up.

In short, normally I wouldn't stop off anywhere, let alone take pictures of me stopping off anywhere.  But this time I decided to be a bit more exciting and make a stop.

Oh, I was speaking at the Brandify Summit on SEO - I literally went through 135 slides in 30 minutes - something I would not recommend you to try at home.  Here is some coverage of the talk.
