Simply the Best: April 2016

Before I get to May’s trip, I need to go back and list all the best posts from April. Here they are!

  1. The Lucky Windfall From China Visa Disaster: This post is really fun to read now because I fixed one problem but unknowingly created another.

    AKL-NRT-PVG was fine but trying to rectify the Beijing problem, I overlooked that PVG back to NRT was not.

  2. I Quit Churning!

    Prepare yourself for more trips to Orlando
    Is it an April Fool’s Day joke or is it the new reality that TPOL is getting out of the churning business?
  3. Vegas, Missed Flight Misery: Another funny story as someone stole/mistakenly took my jacket. I was able to get new ones made in Shanghai but due to the visa issue I almost was unable to pick them up.

    TPOL did it again. Too much party in Vegas led to too much sleep the morning after.

  4. No AC in Tahiti! The premonition of drama to come is uncanny. Not only was there no AC, there was no free breakfast! (see angry comments on that one) There was also cockroaches in the room.

    I posed the question in this article, "How bad could it be with no AC when you’re in a bungalow?" The answer is bad.

  5. Avoiding Taxi Scams Abroad: Apparently, TPOL is famous for his taxi articles. I met some great people at the Freddie Awards that really enjoy reading about my trouble with taxis!

    Having lived in Shanghai, I know that taxi drivers have a propensity to be cunning. Here are the tips that will save you from being taken by your taxi driver whether you are in China or overseas.

  6.  Chase Recon: How to Get It Done: Interestingly, today Chase extended its 5/24 rule to more cards. Maybe this post will help.

    Now, more than ever, it is critical to know everything that appears on your credit report and to make sure you have logical, honest reasons as to why you are applying for the card in the first place.

  7. Disqus Is Dead: An Invite to Trolls The ‘don’t argue with fools’ line is so fitting but sometimes I can’t help but engage with those that misinterpret what I say. It’s probably a waste of time but it does provide for great entertainment when trolls and those of their ilk take what I say literally.

    The choice is yours America! Anonymous angry Trump troll comments or the other not so great alternatives.
