Happy Sunday to all of our travel friends, both near and far! Here are some articles we’ve read from other bloggers (and other sources) that we think you may like, as well, so we’re passing them along.
I’m sure I’m not the only one out there who feels that the planning of a vacation is almost, or sometimes more exciting than going on the trip itself. There’s so much more that’s involved with setting up the perfect trip. Even more so if you’re planning a trip using points and miles.
I’ve been planning our trip to Germany for close to a year and I’ve hit a milestone. All of our major travel plans are set. The last one happened earlier this week when the message I’d been hoping for showed up in my email at 11:42 PM (while I was asleep)
The last puzzle piece was finally in place.
- I booked flights to Germany on Singapore Airlines in Business class
- We’re set for flights home on Delta booked with Flying Blue miles
- I just booked our flight from Frankfurt to Salzburg with 8,000 United miles
- I got positioning flights to New York for 8,000 SkyMiles

- I used a great Virtuoso rep to help book our hotel in Salzburg
- I used a Marriott free night certificate to book a room in Frankfurt

It’s Christmas evening. Most of the presents have been exchanged but maybe you’re on the way to a party and didn’t purchase a gift for that frequent traveler in your life. Fortunately, several airlines have items for sale perfect for the last minute, non-discerning shopper.
Airlines get a bad rap. People are always complaining about flights being canceled or gate agents saying their carry on bags are too big (ummm, more than once!), or that there’s no more room in the overhead (and then they break something in the bag they made them check), or….oh, wait. Those are OUR complaints about airlines. But you know all that and more has happened with just about every airline out there, time and time again. So when airlines do something nice for people, it doesn’t necessarily give us warm fuzzies, but at least gets rid of some of the sharper icicles for a few hours. Stuff like this…
