Simply The Best: October 2023

I was OOTO for most of September (see TPOL’s Out of the Office Until September) and part of October (see Guess Where I AM? OOTO). Now, I’m back. Regular programming will resume for the foreseeable future. Here are the best posts from October:

  1. Cabo Verde: Puerto Rico’s Fraternal Twin

    Fascinated by their longitude-latitude relationship, I thought I would compare how these fraternal twins are the same but different.
  2. TPOL Does the Unthinkable, Skips a ‘Country’

    I am curious to see if I will end up regretting not going to American Samoa when I’m actually in the neighborhood.
  3. Guns & Butter: Sal, Cabo Verde Travel Guide

    Welcome to one of the best places in the world. If you know TPOL, then you know this is high praise.

  4. Rescued! Cabo Verde Airlines: Sal to Lisbon

    I resolved the issue of getting off a remote island by booking a direct flight on Cabo Verde Airlines from Sal to Lisbon.
  5. Hilton Cabo Verde: Perfect, Peaceful Stay

    The Hilton CV is a good value but only if you’re not using points.
  6. Citi Does It Again: No Credit Limit, Can’t Pay Bill, Can’t Shift Credit

    a screenshot of a credit card
    Citi you make no sense to me. Why approve me for the Citi AA Exec card, require that I spend 10k in 3 months to earn 100k AA points, but make it impossible to do so?
  7. What the Pho? In Cabo Verde

    In CV, I found a delicious, authentic bowl of Hanoi pho.

  1. If you call Citi and make a payment with a debit card it will free up your available credit. You can keep doing this while you try to meet your minimum spend
