Over the years I’ve written about a variety of odd and interesting museums. While I’m not a big fan of traditional museums, if they seem to be a bit bizarre, I’m probably interested in checking it out.

Here are some interesting museums that I’ve visited:

Win A Trip For 2 To Cancun from Southwest Vacations

Southwest Vacations

Southwest Vacations is giving you a chance to win a trip for two to Cancun, Mexico!

The prize includes airfare and a stay at an all- inclusive resort. While I’m not a fan of all-inclusives, Lucas and I had a fun time in Cancun last summer thanks to a trip I had won!

I can’t say that I’d pay for an all-inclusive in Cancun, but I definitely wouldn’t mind going back if I won this prize. Continue reading Win A Trip For 2 To Cancun from Southwest Vacations

When I travel to new places I love checking out McDonald’s to see what local menu items might be offered.

McD’s also appeals to Lucas, mainly for the toy but it also offers a taste of home (we rarely eat there at home) if/ when you get tired of the local food.

Over the years, I’ve written about McDonalds in we visited in: Continue reading McDonald’s Hong Kong Serves Mac ‘N Cheese Sandwiches!

I’ve been really busy planning our 2017 Summer Trip. We’ll be heading to the Pacific for around 5 weeks!

The first order of business was getting a flight from the U.S. to the region. American Airlines miles came in handy for that, costing 80,000 miles per person + tax ($71.66). When I asked about adding Theo to the itinerary as a lap baby, I was beyond surprised by the price I was told. Continue reading How A Call To Fiji Airways Saved Me $645.94

Jimmy Carter Shakes Hands w/ Plane Passengers, Global Entry in Penn Station, Lost in Paris Catacombs, Katz’s Deli Expansion, Suicide at Marriott Marquis Times Square & More- The Rehash!

With the annual fee soon coming up on my American Express Platinum card, I decided to apply for the Amex Blue Business card (which I was instantly approved for). The signup bonus isn’t huge but it buys me some time to decide what to do with my Membership Rewards points.

Planning for our summer trip wasn’t looking good but then I started finding award availability for various flights around the region we’ll be visiting. It’s been frustrating using American Airlines miles over the past year or so but for this trip, they seem to be coming up big!

How has your week gone when it comes to miles, points and travel? Continue reading Jimmy Carter Shakes Hands w/ Plane Passengers, Global Entry in Penn Station, Lost in Paris Catacombs, Katz’s Deli Expansion, Suicide at Marriott Marquis Times Square & More- The Rehash!

Teens Lost 3 Days in Paris Catacombs, Rescued

Paris Catacombs
From Michael W Travels visit in 2001

During my second trip to Europe in 2001, I got my first taste of a site that I consider odd.

I was in Paris with a friend and I called home to say hello to my family. My mother had come across an interesting article in an upstate NY newspaper. She told me about a site which had recently reopened in Paris.

Right after the call, I stopped at a Tourist Information Center to inquire about the Paris Catacombs. Continue reading Teens Lost 3 Days in Paris Catacombs, Rescued
