Farewell and Happy Travels
Dear faithful readers of The Window Seat,
My time at Travelocity, and therefore The Window Seat, has come to an end. While I’m excited for the opportunities that lie ahead, I’m sad to go. The last four-plus years have been some of the happiest of my life. Travelocity is an outstanding place to work.
Over the next few months, you may see some changes on the blog. There will more guest writers and perhaps more from our dear friend the Roaming Gnome. You may see more company news and perhaps you’ll read more from our resident destination experts, the Travelocity market managers. Soon my replacement will be named and I know he or she will have some big ideas to make The Window Seat better than it’s ever been.
Thanks for reading all these years. It has been a trip!
My name: Genevieve Shaw Brown. I also answer to Genny and Gen.
How I earn my keep: I work at Travelocity.
Greatest travel lesson learned: I travel for my job, but I've learned work is work, vacation is vacation, and it's best not to try and do both on one trip.
Fondest travel memory: There are so many... but a recent experience was being totally jet-lagged and waking up pre-dawn in Koh Samui, Thailand, and watching the sun rise with my husband on the beach. We talked about what all our friends and family were doing at that very same moment as the sun set back home in New York.
First thing I do in a new place: Peruse the local restaurants and map out my dining strategy for the duration of my trip. Dining strategy = eating at as many restaurants as humanly possible.
First thing I do when I get home: Put a push pin on the destination I just returned from on the map of the world that hangs on the wall above my couch.
Travel ambition: To cover that map completely in push pins.
My most beloved place in the whole world: Cockle Cove Beach in Chatham, Massachusetts.
