This Radisson Rewards promo MAY be good for 15k bonus points after one stay. I DID get the targeted email. It appears open to all but ymmv.
Pretty shitty for Hilton Honors to do this latest devaluation announced. Well, what do you expect from them and Delta after taking away the award charts huh? So, here we go, sad: Hilton Honors 10,000 points hotels global list, whatever is left anyway, sad!
Nice to see a trip report from Romania.
I think this all inclusive resorts thingie is becoming a trend. I can see us blowing some points at one in the future #developing Hilton Commits to Growing Its Portfolio of All-Inclusive Resorts.
Or maybe have a soccer ball as the amenity gift if you stay in these hotels? Cristiano Ronaldo Eyes Paris for Sixth ‘CR7’ Hotel.
You can now travel to Chernobyl using Google Street View! And not get any radiation #winning
Incredible work from this failing newspaper! Mapping Florence’s Impact: Rainfall, Power Outages, and Wind. (HT: ABC).
This is a longer read but may help some of you: How to Stay Married After Your Baby is Born, or, I’m not Divorced Yet For the ones who have been there, you know what I am talking about. Very good advice, you are welcome!
These movies are great, highly recommended! 5 movies that explain what caused the financial crisis, and what happened after.
Fascinating work here: Seven endangered species that could (almost) fit in a single train carriage. And so incredibly sad too!
I thought this was going to a leaner TBB going forward in this evolution phase of the blog. Well, not getting much shorter but the eclectic element is off the roof y’all! Watch this: Animated Map: 2,400 Years of European History. History was my second favorite subject in school. After geography. But I did not go into them because I wanted to eat better. Or something like that. Gosh, I could be working on my business model but that would clearly make me a hypocrite lol…
This house sure looks amazing but would you want to live there? This Organic Desert House in Joshua Tree, CA is at One With Its Environment.
Reader and gun rights reader Mileage Update will love this! Did you know at one time a while back KLM Crew were given this gun, the so called Arctic AR-10? Read this post and and you won’t believe what happened next. Okay, nothing happened. They were never used actually…Probably the first and last time you see a gun picture here. I was actually distracted by not looking at it 😉
The name of the series is annoying. Brandon keeps asking! And who is Brandon? Anyway, the guys at Milenomics are doing a pretty good job lately and in this post they talk about bank bonuses. I used to do them but my threshold of pain (as in doing the work vs payoff) has been going higher and higher. Now it is at $500 and up. And of course it varies based on the hassles involved, etc. For $750 as Huntington Bank targeted me a few years ago…yeah I am in!
Really nice to see AA adding online award booking on Malaysia Airlines and Fiji Airways!
And I leave you with this…Me when I get ten cc conversions a month? 🙂
