rehashI’m currently in the middle of planning our upcoming winter trip but I’m also thinking further ahead to the summer.

I’m hoping we’ll get to visit a couple of new regions that I’ve wanted to explore for quite some time.

Helpful New Feature Coming To Google Maps

Google Maps

Mapping programs have come a long way over the years. We used to go to sites like Mapquest to print out directions and then GPS’s like Garmin and TomTom came along.

Nowadays I’m not sure if many people use much besides their phones for directions.

While I primarily use Waze for directions, when taking public transportation, Google Maps is the way to go. Continue reading Helpful New Feature Coming To Google Maps

What Is The Most Instagrammed City of 2017?

Instagrammed
Hyatt House Chelsea

Around two years back I figured that it would be fun to share some of my travel photos on Instagram.

Besides sharing photos on Instagram, the site is a great place to see other people’s awesome photos. One of my favorite accounts is @paperboyo. I think that you really NEED to see his photos.

In October I was happily surprised to receive 10,000 Club Carlson points for this photo. Continue reading What Is The Most Instagrammed City of 2017?

Airbnb Has A New Payment Option

Airbnb has been a great alternate option to traditional hotel stays. The site opens the doors to places to stay in good locations, typically at cheaper prices than hotels.

One of the unique things about some Airbnb stays is that you’re staying with locals. During our first Airbnb stay in Singapore, Kim, Lucas and I spent a night in a beautiful home. We enjoyed chatting with the host, even having breakfast with them. Continue reading Airbnb Has A New Payment Option

I hope that everyone had a nice Thanksgiving weekend. Black Friday and Cyber Monday were on many people’s minds. Kim and I did some shopping but didn’t make any big purchases.

The Winter Break is fast approaching. We settled on a domestic trip since I couldn’t find any deals for an international destination which seemed worthwhile for our short break. All I need to do is decide on a hotel or two and we’re done planning the trip.

I was feeling a bit under the weather so I didn’t post as much as I’d like to this week.

Regardless of how I felt,  this was a busy week here related to travel.

I decided to use Kim and my Hyatt free night certificates for a trip at the end of June. Surprisingly, I was able to get flights to our destination with an American Airlines MileSAAver level. It’s sad that this is a shocker… Continue reading 1,000 United Miles for $1, McDonald’s American Samoa, J.Crew $50 Off $50, 3 Year-Old Survives Plane Crash & More- The Rehash!
