Weekly Round Up: January 22

Irony of ironies: this past weekend, Tracy was in New York City (my home city) for the New York Times Travel Show, while I was in Philadelphia (her home city) visiting friends. We just missed each other! But luckily, we have a date on the books to see each other in person soon …
