Flying w/Pops

Woke up to a text on Tues morning that said something to the effect of, “got a trip to Amsterdam, wanna go?”  The next day I was sitting in the jumpseat of a Boeing 777 watching my dad fly over the Atlantic. So cool finally getting to see him in his element; at the pinnacle of his career.  It was also pretty cool taking in Amsterdam by bike on a random Thursday afternoon.  I feel super lucky to follow in my dad’s footsteps and be able to do things like this at the drop of a hat.  Special stuff!
