2013 pace is true insanity…I need to get to February 9th to declare victory in my goal! And then we see what happens around here. One thing for certain, the @FlyerTalkerinA2 twitter account has so crashed that wall and barely shows any signs of recovery.

BEST OF MILES/POINTS
Mile Nerd speaks to a newbie :
Do You Really Want This?
Every day, people tell me how much they’d love to have my mileage account balances. I’m sure you would. I’m well into the millions. I know you’d love flying in premium cabins and staying in fancy hotels. Who wouldn’t? But when it comes down to it, you don’t want to stay organized. You don’t want to open and close credit cards. You don’t want to play “the games” that will earn you miles. When it really comes down to it, you won’t give up an hour a week for this hobby. So, you might wish you had a million miles, but you don’t really want it. I hate to break it to you, friend, but you’re in the wrong place. Priceline.com is over there.
At DansDeals he wrote about Google Flights & its new feature, take me to Europe or Asia or any Region por favor!
Holy cow, this Nomadic Matt dude was everywhere yesterday, what’s up with that?
Proof that my blog has made a difference? See Milesabound and his initial disclosure on top and how can I not love the ending “Hat-tip to TBB for making me think carefully about putting in warnings about credit card usage Take it seriously kids, credit cards can be bad for your health if you don’t use them properly
He wrote a fantastic response to the reader’s question on how to get enough miles for Maldives and all are non affiliate links. Oh, and he does have amazing destination guides for Maldives and Seychelles too!
BEST OF TRAVEL
Awesome video at Gadling “Escape to the Beaches of Bali“
“The faces of Ratanakiri“. From dtravelsround. Amazing picture of kids’ faces. Ends with “It makes me wonder: if kids in first world countries who have those iPads, the cell phones, the video games, could come here and see how these children live, I wonder if the next generation would be different?”
NOT SO BEST OF
This is a crazy story at tnooz. Apparently the men travel bloggers are not that good looking for them to sell “Men of Travel Blogging” 2013 calendars? Ouch, some bad blood thrown around too. And why nobody called me, was I not good looking enough? I am devastated, how am I supposed to over come this stab in the back??
Taking some time off from pointing out the ridiculous practices of the usual suspects. Please feel free to point them out in the comments. And please allow yourself to not get angry:-)
