Cool Twenty years on FT!

I just realized I've been on FlyerTalk 20 years this month! Someone at the SATS Premier Lounge in Singapore told me about it. I was on a 7-hour layover before returning to Denver, and struck up this life-changing conversation with another traveler.

Today, twenty years later, I'm wrapping up a two-month visit to Singapore & heading home to Denver! What a long way I've come from spending 7 hours at Changi! This is a magical city. And FlyerTalk has made so many wonderful things possible for me.

Thank you, everyone who contributed to my journeys!

haha, love this, there are a number of FTers who spent the 7 hours then turned around to fly back. (raises hand)

did you leave SIN during the 7 hours?

Seeing as that UA flight would get in around midnight and getting through Singapore customs was a breeze, I'd catch a cab to one of the hawker centers that stayed open and grab a good meal & a cold tiger beer (or 3)

23 years for me but less than 1000 posts ...

Not as active here as I was in the beginning (other social media with people I actually knew IRL took my attention) but I still get a lot of info here and try to make useful posts from time to time.

I went to the Hawker booths and ate with other FT family before heading back to the airport. It was an easier trip due to SWU's.

23 years this month! Who would have thought a USA Today from a President's Club at IAH would make such a difference in my life
