Confirmed: E-Certs Can Be Gifted with Globalist Perks

I booked the Hyatt Grand Reserve Puerto Rico and was told at the hotel that I would receive the Globalist perks. I did not. Many had written in the comments that the solution for...

25,000 Mile RTW Trip Including Iraq Booked!

I've been missing in action, but for a good reason. I have been working on another epic round-the-world trip, the last being in 2019 before the world ended (see Booked! ANA RTW: 22,000 Miles...

Why Is Turkish ‘Unsanitary’ on SeatGuru?

Booking Miami: I’m as Frugal As Ever

For my first trip out of my basement (see Punxsutawney TPOL Trip Report), I'm going to underwhelming, over-hyped, overpriced Miami! Flush with points, I considered staying at high-end properties like the W Miami or...
