Meet and Greet

So I rocked up to the Presidents Club Lounge and met my teammate face to face for the first time. It was an easy meeting and I knew right off the bat our partnership for the Competitours "game" would be alright.

We met up with a majority of the other contestants in the lounge and began with the meet and greet. There was a HIGHLY diverse crew for the inaugural venture. The lot ranged from those with minimal experience to those who are professional travel writers. On the flight from Newark the focus became clear. There were several folks spouting off travel stories as if they had been to every city on the planet, but yet there was one woman who apparently forgot her carry on bag in the lounge! I thought I travelled lightest, but I was now beat.

I was able to get a few hours of sleep on the plane, as I was quickly into my routine from back in the day when I used to shuttle back and forth from Paris to New York. We went wheels down in Frankfurt and it was game on...
