AboutTPOL's Best Simply the Best: March 2015 March 30, 2015 0 March was the one year anniversary for ThePointsOfLife. Here were the best posts for March 2015: 1. Guns & Butter: Bangkok, Thailand Travel Guide Now for what you should not do: First, the obvious that becomes blurred like a copyright infringing Thicke rendition of Marvin Gaye: don’t get arrested. Though I have no experience myself, Locked Up Abroad does not paint a pretty picture of Thai jails. Leave your drugs at home. 2. The Idiot’s Guide to Getting a Myanmar Visa The Golden Rule: Don’t rely on me for visa advice unless you are an idiot. 3. Don’t Ask Me About Delta Being from Michigan, Northwest Airlines was my airline. Nothing was more exciting than taking that endless drive from Flint to DTW waiting to go on whatever magic surprise my father had planned. What made it all worthwhile was getting off the exit and seeing the Northwest 747 livery painted on a hangar. 4. Alexander The Author Leaves ThePointsOfLife Simply that ThePointsOfLife will stop pushing book sales (click here to buy my book) and focus on what the analytics have shown to be of interest to the readers: points and travel. 5. The Burger Joint Le Parker Meridien Check-in to the Le Parker Meridien, use a platinum suite upgrade, and make a call down to The Burger Joint. 6. Airline Names: What Does Etihad Mean? I’ve yet to fly on Etihad but when I do I’ll at least know what it means. 7. Hitchcock’s The REDBirds I am writing this post to warn that open season on MS with the easy prey of redBIRD is no reason to be greedy.
