On the Plane to NYC

We started our adventure at the Portland International Airport, otherwise known as PDX.  After a quick flight to Seattle, we boarded the flight to Newark. I got to sit in the cockpit for a little, and the pilots gave me a small collection of airplane cards.  I flew over Glacier National Park, Detroit, and Cleveland. At the airport, we looked for our bags but they weren’t there.  They hadn’t made the connection! So we had to buy new clothes for the following day.

    Dear Ethan,
    Thank you so much for your presentation this morning! I learned so much about New York City. Your blog posts are so inspiring. I was excited to read that you flew over Glacier National Park. Did you know that this park has over 700 miles of trails and is also the home of Grizzly bears who meander in this pristine mountain paradise?

    You are one well traveled person! Was New York your favorite trip so far? It’s on my “bucket list” for sure!

      Hi Ms. Vandenhaak,
      I don’t really have a favorite trip because they’re all very different.
      I would keep it on your list of things to do.
      There was so much fun stuff to do there.
      From Ethan
