The Michael W Travels family is currently in Samoa and almost half way done with our trip to the Pacific.
It’s been a busy trip with lots of flying and crappy WiFi in most places so it’s been hard to follow what’s been going on in the world of miles and points. If I missed anything important, feel free to fill me in!

The Michael W Travels family is currently on our Summer Trip Around the Pacific.
We’re currently on the Solomon Islands which doesn’t normally see a ton of tourists. However, that is not currently the case as we coincidentally happen to be here during the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Guadalcanal. There are WWII history buffs and relatives of those who fought in the war all over. We also saw the car for the Prime Minister of the Solomons and New Zealand drive by on the road.

After three flights and a couple of long layovers, the Michael W Travels family has begun our trip to the Pacific in the Kingdom of Tonga.
Sundays are a very quiet day in Tonga so we headed to an off-shore island to spend the day. It was definitely a lazy and relaxing first full day to our trip. Happy 11 months to Theo!
There isn’t much else to report since we’ve been super-focused on our current adventure. Continue reading Fight Between Pilot & FA Delays Flight, Cancel Amex Card Through Chat, UNESCO Jumping, Robbed Due to Instagram, Products for Traveling With Baby & More- The Rehash!
Towards the end of the week the Michael W Travels family will be heading off on a 5 week trip around the Pacific. Kim, Lucas and Theo will visit 5 island nations while I’ll be visiting an additional one. (I’ll post more about our trip later in the week.)
Planning this trip has been a ton of work but my guess is that it will be well worth it once we’re there! Without the help of miles and points this trip would not be possible!

Last week I mentioned that Lucas and I were going away on a Father- Son Trip.
We got back later last night from a visit to Pittsburgh, PA. I know it doesn’t sound like a glamorous destination but we had a great time. There’s lots of excellent museums, it’s a great sports town and those bridges make for awesome photos!
I plan to write a bit about our trip in some upcoming posts. Continue reading Odd Checked Luggage- A Can of Beer, Free Shake Shack, Queen Doesn’t Need Passport, Wyndham Card Retention, Flight Delay Due To Pee, Screwdriver In A Carry-On & More- The Rehash!
