Good morning everyone, happy Friday. I will be flying up to Seattle this weekend to attend FTU (Frequent Traveler University) Advanced, a travel conference where some of your favorite travel bloggers will be presenting. If you see me at the event (I’m not hard to spot, just look for the gray Travel with Grant shirt), feel free to stop and chat with me. I am not presenting and I’ve heard most of the presenters many times, so I am mainly there to talk to fellow travel bloggers, readers, and catch up with old friends.
I am flying out from SFO on Friday night, so if you are there, you can probably find me at the Centurion Lounge. I will be staying at the conference hotel (Four Points by Sheraton Seattle Airport South – very sexy hotel name, btw) until Monday morning, then flying back down to SFO. If the Centurion Studio is open really early on Monday, I will probably be there too.
If you have not attended a travel conference, I highly recommend going, especially by yourself (that forces you to mingle with others and not stay with the same 1-2 other people you already know during the entire conference). Tickets to FTU Advanced Seattle are sold out, but tickets for the FTU Advanced Minneapolis (June 9-11) are still available. I will be at that event too. If you have any questions about FTU, please let me know. Have a great weekend everyone!
