10,000 Bonus IHG Points Per 2 Night Stay in NYC

ihg rewards club pointsIHG is offering a nice bonus for spending a 2 night stay in New York City.

The offer started back in September but I must’ve overlooked it since we never stay in the city.

Isn’t it ironic that I’m writing this post from the Intercontinental Times Square! (We’re staying here since we had to use Kim’s Chase IHG Anniversary Free Night before it expires.) Continue reading

What Do Foreign Tourists Think of U.S.

visit USA

Ever wonder what foreigners think of Americans or better yet, the United States as a whole?

While I have some ideas of what the generalized ugly American (while traveling or at home) might appear to look like, these ideas are usually just bad stereotypes. (To get some ideas, check out the post Worst Things Americans Say On Vacation.)

When I think of what foreigners might think of us, I’d probably guess loud, out of shape, entitled, rude and some other (not so nice) things along those lines. Continue reading

Blue Smoke Being Added To More Delta Flights

Less than two weeks back I shared some exciting news if you’re a craft beer fan and also happen to fly with Delta. Check out my post Cheers! Delta Adds More In-Flight Craft Beer Options.

Delta has seemed to be ahead of the culinary game so to speak when it comes to U.S. airlines.

Last month I wrote about a Crazy Expensive IHG Anniversary Free Night We’re Not Booking.

While we had some good ideas and plans for Kim’s free night , nothing seemed to work out to make it useful for an actual trip. We couldn’t just let the free night expire so we decided to book a room in the last place we’d expect  (a place I mentioned in the post above).

We didn’t really have time to go too far, plus we wanted to feel like we were getting a good deal for the free night. This is what led us to our selection. Continue reading

Giveaway: Gogo Internet Pass & Delta HOOU Coupon

I was going through my things and realized that a couple of prizes were never claimed from a couple of giveaways that I recently ran.

Rather than let these items go unclaimed for much longer, I figured it would be a great idea to offer them one more time.

The giveaway will only be open for a couple of days so if you’re interested in winning one of the prizes I’d suggest entering ASAP. Continue reading

Late last night I came across an article on ABC News (from the Associated Press) which had some new information about Korean Air’s Nutty situation which took place last week.

According to the article, “South Korea’s transport ministry said Korean Air Lines Co. will face sanctions for pressuring employees to lie during a government probe” into the nutty events that took place at JFK.

For those of you unfamiliar with what took place Continue reading

These days it’s not so odd to stay in someone else’s home with sites like CouchSurfing (I’ve never tried it) and Airbnb (a personal favorite).  Continue reading
