A view from inside the cockpit of various flying machines. From TheChive. For my aviation geek readers! More on the link, you will enjoy!
Building with a View. Patagonia. By Twisted Sifter
Sunsets Around the World. By Wild Junket. I had a hard time to pick one picture…so I picked two!
On the Merits of Flying Coach: Cultivating Gratitude. By the Efficient Asian Man. Short and I think right on. “Flying coach helps cultivate gratitude just because it’s such a crappy experience that you can’t do anything except expect nothing;… I don’t think I’d be able to cultivate this same gratitude if I were always flying in business or first, and it’s also easy to forget how to be grateful for these other things if you’re always reading other people’s trip reports about constantly flying in business or first.”
For my Canadian readers, here is a detailed explanation of Air Canada’s “Earn Your Wings – The Amazing Race Canada Edition” by Frequent Flyer Bonuses. And the Wandering Aramean shows how Air Canada Aeroplan continues to chip away at any value from this program! It is incredible how this program has been gutted in the recent past!
4 Business class awards seat together to Europe possible. And Asia. Good stuff from View from the Wing.
Fishing 4 Deals with another discovery: Check Inn -CLC Lodging and savings of 20% to 40%. May come in handy if you are looking for a specific hotel and this one has some decent brands. The catch: No points/stay credits (anyone verified it?). I expect other bloggers to blog about this in the near future now…
Loyalty Lobby again is first with the scoop about the (finally) upgraded elite benefits of the Le Club Accorhotels program!
View from the Wing shows how you could get 20k Etihad miles, it could get you a couple of wallets. Sounds a bit complicated. TBB is going to pass. If it was in the pre blog days I would get me a new wallet and gift the other one for Christmas
Nordic MegaDo 2013 video. Thanks to the Wandering Aramean for editing and posting it. So many familiar faces in it!
ON MY MIND
I receive more offers lately in my inbox to make me some income. And I delete them all. I don’t think an online casino ad belongs in my blog!
Prepare for some changes coming soon at TBB as this ride is nearing 11 months old. Which I find incredible I am still standing!

Brave Storm Chaser Captures Mothership-Like Supercell Storm Photography. By Dashburst. The photos are totally sick!
Mountain Biking A Dream Trail. Found at the Adventure Blog
This is very moving. 9,000 Fallen Soldiers Carved into the Sand of Normandy Beach to Commemorate World Peace Day By Dashburst. World Peace Day everyone!
Miles to the Wild is doing a series on 10 Real Life Angry Birds. Here is the Yelling Bird. Looks to me may be a good fit for a TBB mascot?
Million Mile Secrets better hire the two employees fast! Appears a bit burned out? Posts with a (noble) charitable cause and the free entry to museums deal! Followed up with a “7 Business Cards with 50k miles bonus”, some other supportive post about some guy competing for a travel related job and then a short post about a Hyatt chat on Twitter. THIS is the toughest part of blogging, how to come up with quality content consistently! I like my niche as there is always something to say But with 600 blogs on Feedly plus all the other online action somehow I run like a chicken with my head cut off!
Johnny Jet is really into the credit cards now. New tab “Travel Credit Cards”. 11 of them, including the amazing Carnival and Best Western cards…smh Or maybe it was always there?
One Mile at a Time‘s review of the Amankila Hotel in Bali was too much to handle. It would make a great difference if we see how much these cost on the TOP of each post (in cash or miles/points). This must have been over $1,000 per night. Even if I won the lottery I would still have a hard time paying this much! If it was hotel points that is a totally different matter of course. To win the lottery I must be be playing the lottery…which I don’t.
Frugal Travel Guy (the blog) instituting some positive changes due to the continued pressure of TBB (joke, please laugh). Seriously, a few non affiliate cards made into a “5 Highest Current Hotel Credit Card Offers” post! Sad to see Ariana’s name next to Travel “Challenge” which is nothing, in my own opinion, but an excuse to pump more cards! As is…ahh screw it.
Deals We Like with a post about “What is the Difference Between Chase Ink Bold and Ink Plus”. We are not even pretending what it is all about anymore.
Mommy Points about “Most Rewarding Credit Cards for your small business”. For all mommies running their own businesses out there!
Delta Points answers if it is smart to use Skypesos to book a hotel? Why is that even asked in the first place?? Amex
Apparently the current card promo must involve the FlexPerks Visa signature. Expect to see more of it!
I think I am getting tired of this, it is exhausting! Counting the other day 71 affiliate links was, well, epic! I am working on a permanent place of the blogs I approve and do NOT approve! I heard you bluecat!
And I leave you with this:
