A few weeks ago, Denver International Airport unveiled its new Denver Airport Hotel – the Westin Denver International Airport. I got an invitation to go to the opening day celebration (November 19), but unfortunately I wasn’t able to clear my schedule for the day. Luckily, several other reporters that I regularly follow (like Harriet Baskas) were able to cover it (check out her trip report, including some awesome Denver #layovertips here, during her stay at the Denver Airport Hotel as on of the first guests).

It is here once again, the great day of July 4th. The celebration of Americas gained freedom from the grip of the British. It is my favorite holiday by far. For those of you outside the US and unfamiliar with the 4th of July it mostly involves enjoying the outdoors whether it be at a beach or lake, lots of barbecuing capped off by fireworks. You will usually be surrounded by family, friends and plenty of adult beverages. This year I will be splitting my time between the beach and a lake with driving in between, but for many their plans involve flying. The 4th traditionally begins the summer travel season where airports are packed to the gills. Today I wanted to list out the 5 busiest airports in the US for the July 4th travel day as according to Hopper.com.
I recently flew from Boston to Richmond and back on JetBlue and was excited about the trip for a number of reasons. I had never flown into Richmond International Airport but I had heard very good things about the layout, stores, accessibility and quick security. Richmond to me feels like the beginning of the South. People seem friendlier than in Baltimore or DC and the accents start to get a little thicker.

It was tripchi’s pleasure to have participated, and pitched, in the inaugural Concur PerfectTrip DevCom 2013.
It was not only a great networking opportunity, but also a great learning opportunity. I learned about many of the intricacies of the Concur API, so that when we’re ready to apply for the App Store, there won’t be any “gotchas.” I also met many of the Concur dev support team, so that I now know who to go to for help in case I have questions.
