About ThreadTripping

ThreadTripping highlights great conversations among travelers, no matter where those conversations are happening … as long as they are happening somewhere on the interwebs, that is.

While many bloggers do a terrific job of condensing content found in the forums into a form that can be more easily consumed, this blog will point you back to the forums to enjoy the original conversations in all of their juicy, raw goodness.[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left”]

About Me

Some of you know me already. Most of you (to your great credit) do not. My name is Mikel Bowman and I have written and edited travel articles and newsletters, helped produce numerous Freddie Award ceremonies, developed partnerships with travel start-ups and industry giants alike, and have worked with a team to launch, administer and maintain a host of travel-related websites – BoardingArea included.

Throughout the years I have consistently been amazed at the amount and quality of information, humor, and goodwill shared by members of the frequent travel communities – often hidden away in the deep, not-always-easily-searchable recesses of the forums. I no longer work for FlyerTalk, Milepoint, BoardingArea, or any other travel website/online community – but I still read the discussions. I learn how to maximize my credit card spend. I discover hotels and destinations I otherwise would never have known. I pick up travel tips that make my long plane rides easier on my aging body.

But most of all, I continue to be amazed at the amount and quality of information, humor, and goodwill shared by members of the frequent travel communities.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section background_color=”#f5f5f5″][et_pb_row][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” text_orientation=”center” background_layout=”light”]
