Simply The Best: November 2022


I’ll admit that I have not been posting as much as I normally would. That’s good news because I have been busy planning more trips (see Finalizing the ANA RTW Trip, World Cup & Luck Included), a marked improvement compared to sitting at home worrying about Covid (see What’s a Travel Blog Without Travel?). I am leaving again this week and will resume normal blogging operations upon my return. Until then, enjoy November:

5. Guns & Butter: Mt. Etna, Sicily Travel Guide

I have been to Mt. Etna twice. While I won’t be living there full time, I would go back for the food and wine.


6. Amex Transfers Points Twice! The Fight Is On!

By the time I chatted with the supervisor, I had spent over an hour pleading my case. My urgency for booking my award ticket was hijacked by my quest for justice. Alas, there was no justice. Amex awarded me zero points and did not wish any mercy on my soul. The fight will continue!
