After working a string of 17-hour days on the West Coast, I was more than ready to leave SFO and head back east. Unfortunately for me, doing so meant traveling mid-day on a Friday in the summer – which, if you don’t know – means kids galore. Flying during the afternoon in the summer is like […]

I live in Switzerland and needed to go home on short notice for my grandfather’s funeral. It was a stressful time, as I was leaving my husband and year-old daughter at home in Zürich; this would be the first time I had been away from her overnight. I was also four months pregnant with my […]
