Simply The Best: May 2024

Half the year is almost over. Here is the best from May:

  1. Samaraa’s Minaret: The Intimidating Wind to the Top

    Before going to Samarra, I watched a YouTube video that made the trek to the top seem treacherous. I compliment the videographer for her skills but can assure you there is relatively no risk, minus selfie stupidity.
  2. I Blew It: Missing Blowholes in Samoa And Tuna in America

    I have to fly all the way back to the South Pacific to visit both Savaiʻi and American Samoa.
  3. No Business Class San Juan to Medellin

    For a 2:40 minute flight, I can endure coach while saving my points.
  4. Avianca SJU-MDE: No Business But Right Up Front

    I paid an extra $60 for the best seat in the house, right in the front of the plane.
  5. Zemi Beach House Anguilla: 3 Nights vs. 5 Nights

    While the hotel looks nice, I don’t know what I would do for five nights.
  6. Zemi Beach House Anguilla: Forget the View, Focus on the Taxes

    It’s an additional $866.76 in taxes, almost as much as one night.
  7. Silver Airways Anguilla to San Juan: Free & Direct

    Silver Airways offers nonstop service for only $138. In one hour, I could be back home and ready for golf the following day.
