Travel insights from Andrea Sedlacek, editor of The Compass

February 2020 Editor’s Note

Thank goodness January is over. That was the longest month ever, right?

I can’t hate on January too much because it was when I went on the best vacation of my life: to Puerto Rico.

Keep an eye out for my travel diary and two “I Stayed There” articles coming soon. But for now, please know that Puerto Rico is open for business.

February is Hawaii month on The Compass, which is a welcome distraction from the blizzard conditions we’re currently having in Wisconsin! Here are some great pieces we’ve already put live for you:
