ON MY MIND
Wow, talk about a slow weekend in the travel by miles/points blogoshpere! Nada happened. Well, nada noteworthy of making it here, we like to think of ourselves as eclectic!
I can’t wait to pick up my Mercedes next week! In this hobby, you always need to be ON looking for opportunities and then acting super fast!
Can you help me by recommending to me any worthy sites/blogs to follow? Please comment here!
Waiting to receive wife’s two AA cards. We will be calling US Bank to finally get resolution on her personal Club Carlson card. AMEX Premier Rewards Gold card is already here. She got the “cash only” excuse and all sold out in the first two tries for some vanilla ice cream, hmmm. We will be back.
In the meantime, I received 40k instead of 50k on my Citi AA Amex, which is weird. I sent a secured message and already received a reply that the 10k will be added to the next billing cycle statement! Still waiting on the other 50k and the 85k from the Business Club Carlson (and Gold status to finally get the 3 nights award booked in Stavanger, Norway). I made a reservation at one of the Radisson Blu’s just in case while I wait for the Gold status to hit my account. Yes, I could have status matched again but passed, I will just wait for it with the card.
First2Board had a redesign and looks so much better now!
The Stunning Cliffs of Norway. From Twisted Sifter. WOW!
Nate at Yomadic is still goofing around in Skopje!
Paranoid Dictator’s Communist-Era Bunkers Now a National Nuisance. Yes, we talk about Albania, they used to be first cousins with the nut jobs over at North Korea. Fascinating pics right below the first pic. From Wired.
The Japanese Tourism Agency has a new video out. (HT to Tnooz)

Austronaut Sunita Williams gives an incredible tour of the ISS orbital laboratory. Her hair is a bit freaky. I would burn all my Award Wallet balances for this!
