Looks like SPG is having some new options when you hit the 50 Nights mark. Enjoy them while you can as we are on the last leg of SPGhood until Marriott messes it all up!
More on the Choice Privileges program’s new expiration policy. I guess it is a good move. Some interesting upscale hotel options are available as awards there. But it appears the ridiculous condition to not book awards more than a month in the future is still intact. Yawn…
I recently wondered about why we have 5th Freedom flights. TBB reader Oliver2002 sent me this wikipedia link explaining all about them and how they are
named numbered. Great info, thanks! And then Lazy Traveler continues to dig into great obscure Fifth Freedom flights. You can fly Singapore to Bali on KLM using your crappy Skymiles, bet you didn’t know that 🙂
10 Life Changing Trips. Another interesting AFAR list. Westminster Abbey, seriously?
The Best Hotel in Every State. Interesting list.
This is probably the best read I have encountered about David Bowie‘s death and how influential the dude was. Can you recall another artist who reinvented himself so many times? Even his death was a masterpiece; the song Lazarus will haunt us all for ever. Enjoy.
You hear a lot of crap by Wall Street
gurus charlatans all the time. It gets worse when fear sets back in. Turn off the media noise. Unless you are investing for the next three weeks, be grateful for the opportunity to perhaps make more purchases in lower prices because…you are investing for the long term right? Here is a great article by my colleague Ben Carlson who gets a lot of crap for having a name so similar to the Republican Presidential candidate! Title: “We have no idea“. So true…
Hey, I could be inquiring about how to get direct credit card links and pumping you all to pieces with endless “Five best credit cards for breakfast” or other non sense. But I don’t. I could be doing other things with my time and I don’t. And then I get trolled endlessly by this dude whining, even on Saturday nights while I am partying at the Detroit Auto Show. When you spend so much time on a blog you obviously despise and your comments here outnumber the overall comments in your own blog…there is something seriously…messed up. Help me and other smaller bloggers beat back the crap from these blogs, we can wiiiiiiiin 🙂 Please, don’t feed the trolls, it’s a waste of time, just sit back and enjoy, I sure do!
Lake Bled, Slovenia. Okay, this place is growing on me…Like…a lot! If it only had a Hyatt nearby lol.
And I leave you with this…
