Tomorrow is the last day of my day job and first day of the newest chapter in my life - being a full-time blogger. It's definitely bittersweet, because I've met incredible people working on Wall Street and had some really solid road warrior years - which gave me the inspiration to start this site.

However, travel is my passion and I am so grateful that the site has grown enough to be able to become a full-time endeavor. I've thought long and hard about this move and while there are always risks pursuing your passions, I know that now is as good a time as ever to focus on my own business and travel the world.

As a loyal reader, you don't have anything to worry about. I'll be devoting even more time to finding the best deals and providing exclusive tips to help you maximize the value of your miles and points, which has always been my site's primary mission. I'll also be developing new, innovative content, and bringing in fresh voices to cover additional travel and hospitality topics, so stay tuned!

Overall, I'm really excited to embark on this journey with so many unknowns and I'm thrilled I can share it all with you. In fact, after I leave the office tomorrow, I head directly for Tokyo. I'll spend three days at the Park Hyatt Tokyo and will take advantage of the numerous tips I got from the comments on my Tokyo post (with random giveaways for readers who shared their advice - thank you!) Expect a full report of my Delta and Hyatt experience and many more reviews to come - so far this summer I will be in Vancouver (for the TBEX travel blogger conference), Madrid, Alicante, Barcelona, Sitges and Mauritius, and that only brings me to July!

Your feedback is immensely important to the growth and evolution of I read every single email, comment, and question, so please continue to send them along. A fellow tall traveler TPG reader recently recommended that I review the showers in hotels - great idea - keep them coming!

As always, I am so appreciative of your support of the site and I look forward to many adventures and travel deals to come. Thank you for flying with me!
