|St. Regis, Bali (see link below)|
Lack of sleep was getting to me at around 10 pm. Then I said I need to finish the blog post and headed down to my home office. This will be a really short post as I am tired and have my reasons for not being so thorough calling out bloggers for, well, not so best of type posts!
This has always been a hobby for me. I love the thrill of the game! I tried to kick the habit but gave up. I got more Vanilla today at my local drug store, trying to squeeze 6x with my HiltonAmex just a little more before it goes away! I intend to dial this baby down after February 9th. Tax season is almost here now and my new gig at a prominent publication (no, not Inside Flyer lol) takes some time and I must step up my game so I don’t look like a fool among a bunch of experts surrounding me! I will still blog here, I just have no clue what the final end product will look like. It will not be what you were accustomed to, I simply do not have the time to pull it off, I must focus on what brings food to my family’s table.
A reader commented: “…you’ve done more for the FF community in 3 months than FTG has done in the past 2 years” And that really means so much to me, especially the first part! Let’s give FTG some deserved credit here please. The several years before the last two and the several before he started the blog! He truly has contributed so much to the FF community, a lot more than I can ever dream of!
I just have a few more of these Buzz posts to declare my 3 month goal accomplished! And I am not going away…Bloggers: I will still be watching you:-)
BEST OF MILES/POINTS
So, that is what Crossover Rewards was! One View from the Wing tells us more on this new tie up of Delta and Starwood. I was surprised by this. Yes, quite innovative. Difference maker? Not at all. If I was Starwood Platinum…maybe. Let’s all please wait for the full details, you know, the devil is usually buried in them. And we are dealing with Delta here, let’s not forget that! Could AMEX be behind all this? Hmm, some food for thought.
Any guesses for the AA-US merged airline name? American Airways is my guess!
BEST OF TRAVEL
One of the most stunning videos I have seen! Aurora Borealis, Iceland. Seen at Gadling first.
Point me to the Plane has amazing pics of a trip report to the St. Regis in Bali.
As this was going to press, I saw this trip report at BehindTheCockpit from Fairmont Banff Springs! Oh shoot, I still need to book my award flights for this trip in the summer!
NOT SO BEST OF
Pics from inside a Colombian prison from Matador.
