My New Favorite Website

So I've been spending a lot of time on my new favorite website lately. I love checking out the hot new items, mixing things up with my searches, saving to my account, even getting email alerts.

Yes, I'm talking about Kayak.

Seriously, I love checking out the travel deals, from business trips to family vacations. Last night I even looked up ticket prices for a trip I'm not even part of, from a city I don't live in, just because a friend said she couldn't find a price lower than $700 and I took it on as a challenge.

(For the record, I found one for $360, if she's willing to take the red eye the night before instead.)

Silly, yes, but I love to daydream about travel. (Especially since I don't get the opportunity to travel very much.) And I've got a few trips that have gone beyond daydream to reality coming up this year.

First is a business trip to a conference in California next month. Come to think of it, my LAST plane trip was to California as well. Guess it's becoming a habit! And this week I booked my flight to New Orleans for October. This is a double business trip, I suppose, since the first half is a writer's weekend with the Naughties (yay!) and the second half is a national conference I'm attending for work.

I know there are a lot of people out there who travel far more than I do, for business and on vacation. But it's still a bit of a novelty for me. Which is probably why an airfare website intrigues me so much.

Now excuse me a moment while I set up a fare alert for next spring break. Think it'll be time for a family vacation by then!

I have to try this! I have a couple trips coming up that I have no idea how I will afford. I hope it comes through with some good deals!
