Heads up, travel friends – the U.S. State Department has issued a new travel advisory that urges United States citizens to “exercise increased caution” when traveling to the Peoples’ China. Similar advisories are out for citizens of Algeria, Antarctica, Belgium, France, Germany, Denmark, Myanmar, and the United Kingdom.
Joe and I are foodies so it’s always exciting for us to try out different restaurants when we’re traveling. Through the years, we’ve had some good luck in finding delicious and/or interesting places in Atlanta, Sedona, LAX, the greater Austin area, New Orleans (yeah, we visited a lot of bars there, too), Washington D.C. (vegan BBQ!) and even right here at home at WDW (hello, Victoria & Albert’s!) and MCO. In fact we’ve even been known to travel to some places specifically for a meal.
We’ve found a great way to try out a “new to us” restaurant, either when we’re home or when we’re traveling, is during Restaurant Week. That’s a set time during the year when a variety of restaurants in a city offer special 2, 3, 4 or sometimes even 5 course prix-fixe menus for the asking, oftentimes at prices much better than if you purchased items a la carte.
Here’s the current 2019 schedule of Restaurant Weeks across the country. Are your favorite cities included?:
If you’re looking for flights to/from the U.S., Canada, Latin America or the Caribbean in early September to early October and have some miles in your Delta Skymiles account, this flash sale might be a good one to look into. Continue reading “Delta Flash Sale! Offer Ends July 25!”
Get your SkyMiles gathered because Delta announced a flash sale yesterday, with select roundtrip routes within the United states starting at 11,000 Skymiles, Europe starting at 33,000 miles, Asia starting at 50,000 miles, and the Caribbean and Latin America starting at 11,000 miles (all with taxes and fees, of course).
