Jackson Hole, Wyoming – not such a hole after all

Done with business school, got a little wild vacation after it, and now I’m back to work with the occasional “business trip” in tow. I have a lot of work that I need do from home, and when that piles up high enough, I take it away with me somewhere nice to do it in peace away from the city. I write off most of it as business expenses.

All that was by way of introduction to my current lodgings at Teton Mountain Lodge & Spa. I don’t take travel lightly and I figure that if I’ve got the money I should spend it. I don’t stay in big, fancy hotels because I don’t like them; but I stay in nice ones.

So I’m in Jackson, Wyoming, right near Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park.

I spend half of every day working and the other half either hiking (I’ve hired a private guide to show me the best of the best in a limited amount of time) or I’m in the spa relaxing. This is my kind of vacation—out in nature, with fresh air and wildlife, but not too far from a luxury room and my laptop.

Traveling to Work

So I’m back at work. The subway ride on the L and then the 4 was atrocious as usual. Thousands of us workers and commuters jammed into the New York Metro and it just never ends. My trip to Yosemite didn’t last long, but don’t worry I’m already planning another escape. My online travel planner has been really helpful and hopefully this job I’m doing will end soon and I’ll be able to leave another trip before I have to start another job–the value of temping!

I can breathe in Yosemite

Its been a fun few days at Yosemite Lodge. I found it using my trip planner. Now I’m about to head back to New York and back to the stress machine known as work. It was fun swimmming at the lodge’s pool and chatting with some of the other guests. I went on some hikes in the park, but mostly relaxed and read with the beautiful scenery around me. I’ve been reading a book on finding the perfect match–a book on finding one’s soul mate. I don’t think its been working since nothing has shown up here in Yosemite, but I really didn’t come here for that sort of thing, just wanted to get away. Anyway I’ll write when I get back to NYC.
