Coco

Southwest Airlines is giving away a trip for 4 to the premiere of the Disney Pixar animated film, Coco (in Los Angeles)!

The prize includes airfare, a 2 night hotel stay, tickets to the premiere & party and more.

We used American Airlines miles to book the international flights to and from the U.S. but they were in/ out of California.

Our first international flight was at 11:30 PM from LAX so Kim and I figured we could catch an early flight and spend part of a day wandering around Los Angeles. Continue reading The Most Expensive Luggage Storage Ever

American Airlines NewsWith the U.S. easing the restrictions on visiting Cuba it has quickly become one of the hottest touist destinatons.

Full diplomatic relations have been restored between the two nations so hopefully it will be even easier for Americans to visit Cuba in the near future. I’d love to go before it gets flooded with American tourists and loses some of its charm but it still isn’t so simple to get to Cuba…
