I cannot believe that I’m getting so close to 2,500 followers! And the fact that less than one year after deciding to follow my heart and follow my dreams, I was flying business class on @turkishairlines - that is unfathomable to me! I’m finally getting back to my old self, three weeks to the day after my appendectomy and ensuing sinus and ear infections... but I wouldn’t trade the health issues for anything. I’m the luckiest! . This @turkishairlines @airbus A330-200F is just magnificent in front of all those Turkish tails... while I admittedly edit most of my photos (at least slightly) this one is completely nude, with the exception of rotating it ever so slightly. . Thank you all for your support and continuing to like my photos and my stories. I’m forever grateful to @aviationqueen , @airchivesloan and the whole @airwaysmag team who have encouraged me and had faith in me from the start. Asking for help is OK. In fact, it may be the one thing standing between you and whatever you dream of doing! . @worldofspotting #worldofspotting #plane #planespotter #planespotting #planesofinstagram #avgeek #aviation #aviationgirl #aviationjournalist #aviationjournalism #msp #mspairport #mpls #mn #minneapolis #minnesota #thatisall #spotterfam #turkish #turkishairlines #airbus #airbus330f #cargoplane #istanbul #turkey #airways #airwaysmagazine #aviationqueen

I spy a pitot tube! Seeing people next to these beasts always puts it in perspective. Looking out at the massive @etihadairways @boeing 777 that just came in to @dfwairport from @abudhabiairport @visitabudhabi ... I actually spent a few minutes chatting with a guy who had just deplaned and flew business class on this beauty. We geeked out a bit then he told me to check out @thepointsguy — I’m already a fan! Hopefully someday I can have that kind of following... #goals ❤️. . @worldofspotting #worldofspotting #plane #planespotter #planespotting #planesofinstagram #avgeek #aviation #aviationgirl #aviationjournalist #aviationjournalism #thatisall #spotterfam #abudhabi #etihad #etihadairways #thepointsguy #boeing #boeing777 #tripleseven #dallas #dfw #pitottube

After 30 years on this earth, I got my first bee sting yesterday... and snapped this @delta @airbus A330 30 seconds later with tears in my eyes. He was coming into @mspairport from @schiphol ... don’t know where the plane was coming from. HA. Just Joshin’! Man... this year has been filled with a difficult loss, lots of travel, surgery and now a big buzzin’ first, and somehow I still feel like this is my best year yet... I’m feeling confident, loved and hopeful.

Yes, it’s OK and normal to sit in the middle of a room with 7,000 model planes and look up toward the sky and just say, “Thank you.” . @worldofspotting #worldofspotting #plane #planespotter #planespotting #planesofinstagram #avgeek #aviation #aviationgirl #aviationjournalist #aviationjournalism #msp #mspairport #mpls #mn #minneapolis #minnesota #thatisall #spotterfam #turkey #modelplanes #museum

The work that @airwaysmag , @lhtechnik and @spiritairlines are doing to help the sweet people of #puertorico is inspiring and simply amazing. I saw this ball of sunshine out at @mspairport this past weekend and remembered the ways in which all three of those organizations are helping to bring some ☀️ back into the lives of Puerto Ricans. Way to be really flippin’ awesome people! . @worldofspotting #worldofspotting #plane #planespotter #planespotting #planesofinstagram #avgeek #aviation #aviationgirl #aviationjournalist #aviationjournalism #msp #mspairport #mpls #mn #minneapolis #minnesota #thatisall #spotterfam #spirt #spiritairlines #bananaplane #airbus #hurricane #hurricanerelief #lufthansatechnik #airways #airwaysmag

With my crazy @turkishairlines @iaxairport appendiventure... I almost forgot that three weeks from today my 10-day European adventure with my dad will commence! Our first stop is a behind-the-scenes tour of @schiphol ... about a year in the making, before cruising the Rhine! The finale will be a @klm 747 flight... my first time on the Queen! Hopefully on this trip I will not lose a body part! . @worldofspotting #worldofspotting #plane #planespotter #planespotting #planesofinstagram #avgeek #aviation #aviationgirl #aviationjournalist #aviationjournalism #msp #mspairport #mpls #mn #minneapolis #minnesota #thatisall #spotterfam #amsterdam #schipol #rhine #cruise

NEW BLOG UP: I was explicitly warned NOT to travel to Turkey by the U.S. Department of State. While there, I had a medical emergency and was cared for by selfless, loving people before having a chance to see with my own eyes some of the city’s rich culture and history. Two days after I returned home, the U.S. saw its deadliest mass shooting in modern history. Is something backwards? You tell me.

I felt incredibly guilty and “wrong” flying business class on my @dulles_airport -> @ataturk_airport @turkishairlines flight one week ago today. But now, having gone under the knife only five days ago, I practically need it and am incredibly thankful to the generous people at Turkish for taking such great care of me. . @worldofspotting @airwaysmag #worldofspotting #plane #planespotter #planespotting #planesofinstagram #avgeek #aviation #aviationgirl #aviationjournalist #aviationjournalism #turkish #turkishairlines #businessclass #thatisall #spotterfam #istanbul #turkey #widenyourworld

I am sad to leave Istanbul. The city and the people are beautiful. I hope to be back soon.

Uçaklar beni güldürüyor ❤️ Just translating for now, but planning to learn Turkish because I love this country and the city of Istanbul so much!

I’m back! Who needs an appendix anyways!? We will fly home Saturday and I got the all clear from the surgeon this morning. Thank you to my good friends at @airwaysmag and @turkishairlines for giving me the opportunity to explore Istanbul for a few days post-op! Including my first time spotting at @ataturk_airport ❤️... . @airbus @worldofspotting #worldofspotting #plane #planespotter #planespotting #planesofinstagram #avgeek #aviation #aviationgirl #aviationjournalist #aviationjournalism #thatisall #spotterfam #turkey #istanbul #turkish #turkishairlines #airbus #airbus321 #ataturk #surgery

Uçaklar ve kediler - what else does one need? I promise this is my last non-plane photo, but hey my tattoo is in this pic... got to walk outside today and spend time relaxing and resting amongst some sweet, comforting friends at the park. I am on the up and up, and follow up with the surgeon tomorrow. Hopefully I will have the all clear. . @worldofspotting #worldofspotting #plane #planespotter #planespotting #planesofinstagram #avgeek #aviation #aviationgirl #aviationjournalist #aviationjournalism #thatisall #spotterfam #kedi #cat #catlover #catsofistanbul #turkish #turkey at Istanbul, Turkey

It kind of seems like the world doesn’t want me to travel... lost the diamond in my wedding ring at @flylaxairport and got appendicitis here at @ataturk_airport ... . I took this #timelapse yesterday morning looking out at @istanbul ... trying to “wait it out” - convinced I had food poisoning. My phone was propped on the window while I was curled up in the fetal position on the bed. Little did I know I’d soon find myself in the hospital surrounded by some of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. I love @turkishairlines and the people of Istanbul. I’m happy to have given up an organ to meet these amazing human beings! Everything happens for a reason and this is proof. Can I stay? . @worldofspotting #worldofspotting #plane #planespotter #planespotting #planesofinstagram #avgeek #aviation #aviationgirl #aviationjournalist #aviationjournalism #thatisall #spotterfam #turkey #istanbul #ataturk #turkish #turkishairlines at Istanbul, Turkey

@thegreatplanes

I came to Istanbul for the @turkishairlines Corporate Club Conference, and instead spent yesterday and today in the hospital for an emergency appendectomy. Let me tell you, being alone in a foreign country and reeling with pain, scared of what would happen, is not fun. But the love I felt from my incredibly kind, caring and selfless friends at Turkish made me feel so much better. And the love I felt from my @airwaysmag family across the pond meant so much ... and of course the support from my family and friends - it felt like they were right here with me. I was discharged this evening and returned to the hotel to find two gifts from Turkish: these beautiful flowers, and my husband. . @worldofspotting #worldofspotting #plane #planespotter #planespotting #planesofinstagram #avgeek #aviation #aviationgirl #aviationjournalist #thatisall #spotterfam #turkish #turkishairlines #istanbul #airways #thankful #love at Hilton Istanbul Bomonti Hotel & Conference Center

This will certainly be an adventure. About to board this big, beautiful @turkishairlines @airbus A330-300 and when I wake up... I’ll be at @ataturk_airport in beautiful Istanbul... I’ll be attending the Turkish Airlines Corporate Club Conference on behalf of @airwaysmag ... a dream come true for me. Can’t wait to see the sights, explore, meet people, learn and just soak it all in. Get ready for lots and LOTS of photos ... I don’t deserve this, but somehow it is happening to me, so I’m going to make the most of it.

I've been trying to convince myself that the @boeing 747 will never go away. It worked for awhile. But with @united announcing their last flight on the Queen, I'm becoming a bit of a wreck. So much about that very plane has defined so much about aviation, at least for me. To think of a day where I can only see that hump in a museum gets me more than misty-eyed. .

My latest piece for @airwaysmag is up! The airlines really stepped up to the plate and did (and continue to do) a lot of good following hurricanes Harvey and Irma. @southwestair , @delta , @united , @americanair , @spiritairlines , @alaskaair , @jetblue and even our Canadian friends @westjet gave back in more ways than one. Check out the story and thanks to @zvonimirte for the sweet graphic to go with my piece! Head to airwaysmag.com now to read!
