The Michael W Travels family made it back home after being delayed by close to 30 hours. This caused us to miss a day in San Francisco where I had hoped to check out a game at AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants.
In the end, Virgin America came through in helping to get us home, but I’d have to give a big thumbs down to Fiji Air and American Airlines. (More on that in an upcoming post.)

Our 5 week trip to the Pacific is almost over. We’re currently in Vanuatu, an island I’m looking forward to checking out.
Once we get home, there’s a promo or two that I need to look into booking. I also need to figure out some trips since we have nothing planned after this one…

The Michael W Travels Family is currently in Fiji (during our 5 Week Trip to the Pacific).
It’s been a very interesting adventure so far, with more to come! So far, we’ve been to 4 island nations as well as American Samoa. The one things that’s the same on all of the islands, are the friendly people that we’ve come across. (Definitely a nice thing when you’re traveling with kids.)

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!
During Spring Break 2016 Lucas and I went on our first Father- Son trip to Poland. The trip was a great experience and we followed up with 3 trips together in 3 weeks since Kim was pregnant with Theo (and not traveling).
I didn’t expect it this summer, but Lucas and I will head off on another (domestic) Father- Son trip this week! Nothing exotic but to a city I’ve long wanted to check out, primarily for their baseball stadium.
Otherwise, trip planning is moving along well for our big family trip to the Pacific! Continue reading Casey Neistat’s Lufthansa First Class Review, Gun Found In Suitcase Lining, Bog Bodies of Ireland, Muji Hotels, Service Ducks On A Plane, Turtles Cause Flight Delays and More- The Rehash!
It’s been a busy week here. We’ve made a lot of progress with plans for our big Pacific Islands trip which we’ll be leaving for in about 3 weeks. We still need to finish booking some hotels and then we’ll be good to go.
After some debate, I decided to apply for the Hyatt card before the 2 free-nights bonus went away. Chase called me for more info before getting approved. Talk about an odd conversation! (Maybe I’ll share it in a future post.)
