Bicoastal Disney Openings, Visiting Liverpool With A Beatle, A New Way To Search for Flights & More

And here it is, Sunday again. Hope y’all have had a good week! Here are some travel articles we’ve recently seen that we think you may enjoy.

  • Nick at Frequent Miler wrote about a new search function on one of my favorite websites, Google Flights. You’re now able to search for airfares that allow you to put a carry on bag in the overhead bin. So it’ll eliminate basic economy fares that don’t allow bin access and add the bag charge to flights that charge extra for the privilege (like Spirit and Frontier).
  • Caroline from Frugal Travel Guy wrote about the best places to stay in Cuba on points and miles. The hotels available for points redemption are slim if you are an American who can even visit under the current travel restrictions. Personally, I’d strongly suggest staying at a casa particular instead of a chain resort. You can go to any island in the Caribbean and stay at a resort. If you’re going to Cuba, spend some time with the people. You’ll never forget it.

We FINALLY Saw The Austin Bats (a.k.a. “Normy & Sam Were Good Luck!”)

Joe and I just came back from a whirlwind 5-day trip to New Braunfels, Austin & San Antonio, Texas. We’ve done bits and pieces of this trip almost every year since 2006 or so, but this was the first time we brought our friends Norman (Normy) and Samantha (Sam). They live in Georgia, had never been to Schlitterbahn New Braunfels (our main reason for the annual jaunt…although Buc-ee’s, one of the best hotel employees in the world and some of our favorite restaurants in the area [The Salt Lick and Huisache Grill, among others] are a close 2nd, 3rd and 4th), and Sam had never been to Texas, period. So we had reason to do a few more touristy things than usual, including the Austin sign and the Alamo (both of which were perfect opportunities to add to my photobomb collection, LOLOL!).

Normy had mentioned he would like to see the bats in Austin. Now, Joe and I had already tried to see the bats twice before while standing on the South Congress Bridge, with absolutely NO results. So we figured this visit would be “3 strikes and you’re out,” or “3rd time’s the charm.”
