Sherria and I often trade places to travel from our current cities to our hometowns during the weekends. She catches the Megabus south from New York to visit her family in Virginia, and I’m usually on the Boltbus headed from DC to NYC to see my loved ones. Every now and then, we manage to be in the same city and do some much-needed catching up. Get the latest from both of our worlds!
