A Long Junk-Foodie Layover in Los Angeles

On the way to the Pacific, the Michael W Travels family had a long layover in Los Angeles. During our time we had to deal with The Most Expensive Luggage Storage Ever.

I booked our flights from JFK to LAX and LAX to NAN using points on different airlines.  We chose  to have the long layover in Los Angeles since we didn’t want to take a chance on missing our international flight.  We initially figured that it would be a good opportunity to wander around LA.

However, in LA things are really spread out, Uber rides can be pricey and traffic could be a real pain. Continue reading A Long Junk-Foodie Layover in Los Angeles

We’re now less than a week away from heading off on our next trip. This will be Theo’s first international trip which is pretty exciting. For seasoned traveler Lucas, it will be his 33rd country!

Just a reminder: I hope that all of you look over your credit card statements. You never know what might show up. I was looking over my Chase Ink statement and found a fraudulent charge. Imagine just paying a bill without reviewing what you’re paying! I do it for every bill that I pay and if not, it could’ve been a very costly mistake… Continue reading Longest Uber Ride Ever, Win 500,000 Wyndham Points, Track Santa’s Journey, TSA Blocks Toy Bear At Airport, Shopping & Dining Bonus Offers- The Rehash!

Rehash

This weekend we stayed at The Warwick Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia. The property was formerly the Radisson Blu Warwick. This was our final Club Carlson stay booked with the 2nd night free benefit. It sure felt like the end of an era for hotel bookings although we booked way back in May 2015.

Otherwise, we’re still working on finalizing trip itineraries for a few things coming up. We’re still making decisions on what to do which is holding up the planning a bit… Continue reading Country Inn Gift, 25K Hilton Bonus Points, Woman Opens Emergency Door of Moving Plane, Tenn Hangs Off Carnival Ship, Apple Replacing iPhone Batteries, Lyft Passenger Shot & More- The Rehash

While I’m not a fan of cruises, one newer option has caught my attention.

Fathom is a new brand from Carnival offering impact travel.

They consider impact travel a “whole new category: it’s travel with purpose“. Think giving back during your trip by working with locals in a variety of social projects to help improve community.

Fathom currently offers trips out of Miami to Cuba and the Dominican Republic. Continue reading Win A Fathom Cruise to the Dominican Republic
