What To Do When Your Flight Is Delayed By The Weather

It’s summertime and that means we’re entering prime leisure travel season in the U.S. Kids are out of school and families are going on trips they planned all year. Unfortunately, this is also the time of the year where the weather can wreak havoc on airline travel on an almost daily basis. Living in Orlando, we’re accustomed to severe weather blowing through all the time. Here’s a picture a friend of ours took looking from one side of the car and then the other.

“Dear Ryanair,”: The Funniest Complaint Letter Ever Written To An Airline

If you’ve read this travel blog for any length of time, you may notice that we try to do things “our way.” That’s simply because this blog is really an extension of us.  Joe will write about points and miles because he’s into that and I will often write about “human interest” travel stuff because that’s what I like (and yeah, the weirder the better).
