A few weeks ago, a friend of mine and I were talking about going on a mini-vacation. Long story short, he isn’t likely able to come, but being the fearless flyer I am, I opted go to anyways. So, did I head to Kayak.com to find an overpriced fare in the back of the planes? Nope. When it was all said and done, I was booked on a last-minute flight in business class, round-trip, to Berlin, Germany for a grand total of $27.28.
Just recently, I was coming home from a trip to Washington, DC, and was trying to figure out how to get home. Do I call someone to pick me up at 10:30pm (it’s a little late)? Do I take a cab (it’s $20), or try to get an Uber to the airport (it’s a pain at the airport and $25)? I suddenly remembered getting an email from Car2Go a few weeks back explaining how they had installed a Car2Go charging station across the street from the airport. Remembering this roughly-$6 option was available, I set out to “walk across the street” – but because of the construction, I discovered it wasn’t going to be just that easy.
