At the end of this week we’ll be leaving on our first trip of the new year so it was about time that I finally finished getting all of the details worked out.
It was also a good week for manufactured spend, something I haven’t done in quite some time. I loaded my Amex Target REDcard a couple of times in the past few days and boy was it a breeze! (I need to thank the people who helped me get a REDcard since it is not available in the NYC area. It’s definitely much appreciated.) Continue reading

Wouldn’t you just love to get your very own Cathay Pacific Goat stuffed toy?
Well, one could be yours if you book a flight soon… Continue reading

While I love traveling, cruises are definitely not my thing.
I’ve been on a cruise once in my life and it certainly didn’t leave me wanting to go back for more. Some things that I don’t like about cruises are that you are stuck for long periods of time onboard and when you do stop, you usually get a short visit wherever it might be. Also, the day seems to revolve around the meal schedule and (at least on our cruise) there weren’t enough lounge chairs by the pool.
I will add that the cruise we went on wasn’t one of those mega-ships. If I was to try a cruise again, I wouldn’t mind trying a river cruise. I’ve read positive things about them and I’m guessing it would be a very different experience.
Why am I writing about cruises if I don’t like them? Continue reading
A couple of days back I wrote about the NY Times Travel Show and how Etihad’s The Residence would be there and yesterday I attended the show’s Trade Day.
I had an overall, very positive experience but noticed some differences this year. The booths didn’t seem to be as extravagant as in years past. It also seemed like the small handful of cities/ states/ countries that I wanted to chat with weren’t present! Continue reading

I came across an interesting article from Huff Post Travel about a man who claims to be the most traveled person in the world.
However, there is a bit of a problem with his claim. Fred Finn’s only been to 150 countries. Continue reading
I’m typically not a big breakfast fan although I’ve always been told that you need to start your day off right with a good breakfast.
Four Points by Sheraton wants to help you enjoy a full American breakfast at a very low price. Continue reading
This weekend, January 23 – 25 is the very popular New York Times Travel Show which takes places at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC.
I’ve been to the show around 6-7 times including the past few years with media access thanks to my blog.
The cool thing about media access is that it gives you access to the first day of the show which is the Trade Day for industry professionals, exhibitors and media. Continue reading
24:13, that’s how long…
There has been a bunch of JetBlue related posts over the past few months due to the upcoming changes being made by the airline.
After writing about these changes, I never would’ve expected to book a flight, let alone a paid one with JetBlue. However, a pretty decent fare to a place that I’ve long wanted to visit presented itself…
So I booked a flight after the JetBlue apocalypse to Charleston for early March. Continue reading

Here is an amazing feel-good story that Kim sent me last week.
The story was so interesting since it deals with travel, kids and great customer service. Those three things don’t always get grouped together but in this case, all I could say was wow… Continue reading
