I hit the Pacific NW - with other travelers calling all the shots. Sunday's @nytimestravel cover: nyti.ms/1utQruq
I was interviewed by @stevenshalowitz for his podcast, theonewayticketshow.com. He made it pretty interesting, take a listen.
@frugaltraveler guarantee if you were a woman you'd have multiple stories of being followed or harassed

.@universe93 No question about that. Touched on issues of women in travel a while back, in case you're interested: frugaltraveler.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/09/06/the…
Asked to write about a negative travel experience that had lasting impact...here's what I came up with: nytimes.com/2014/09/22/tra…
My @TSA #precheck was reinstated (perhaps thanks to my #FOIA request) and breezed through @ORD security. L to gate in 12 min.
@frugaltraveler Loved your tweets on #Chicago this weekend. What a great town to explore with only a few bucks in your pocket.

.@VentraChicago doesn’t do me any good if I leave Chicago on 3rd day if pass. London’s is far more tourist friendly: toptiplondon.com/transport/tick…
. @HectPowles no doubt...here’s how I did my US$100 weekend in Melbourne: mobile.nytimes.com/blogs/frugaltr…
The last $3.75 of the $100 weekend budget goes to this #hotdog and fries. Love the sport peppers.… instagram.com/p/tOE527Fqul/
Last one, promise: #elephant ear poking into #alligator pilea. Not something the animal version should… instagram.com/p/tNrxqilqoK/
First of all, best fruit ever. #guanabana #graviola. Second, love these "LOOK" signs. @ The Lincoln… instagram.com/p/tNqeTalqlo/
The famed "Mexican earring flower" (made that up, it's a golden fuschia plant from #Chiapas) #Chicagoinstagram.com/p/tNpkWdFqjz/
Thats a reasonable trade-off. (Note #Chicago skyline in reflection.) @ The Lincoln Park Conservatory instagram.com/p/tNoQo2lqg7/
Thanks to stevenshalowitz for today's brunch selection. #chicago @ Walker Brothers Original Pancake House instagram.com/p/tLqnPflqgx/
$4.95 lunch special, free soda not pictured. $100 weekend in #Chicago off to a good start #deepdish @… instagram.com/p/tI6c6RFqhY/
By the way, thanks to all who sent in #Chicago tips. See you at the free @chicagosymphony performance tonight.
Lost $5 right off the bat by misreading the true cost of a 3-day transit pass. $20 plus *$5* for the card. $100 weekend #Chicago
$100 weekend in #Chicago has begun...with a $4.95 pizza and soda lunch special. Who knows where?
I'll be spending Friday through Sunday in #Chicago w/ about $40 total to eat and $30 for entertainment. Ideas, please!
$100 weekend in #Chicago starts tomorrow! Who's got (VERY) cheap or free suggestions? #notMilleniumPark @ChooseChicago
