Hotels.com Reward Booking Headache Ends With Great Customer Service

Hotels.com is one of our favorite sites to use to book hotel stays if we’re not booking direct or staying in a hostel or Airbnb. (*You can actually book some hostels on the site, too.)

While booking a room over the weekend, I tried applying a reward to a booking. I headed over the the Hotels.com app and encountered some issues. (Find out why it pays to book your reward stay through the app here.) Continue reading Hotels.com Reward Booking Headache Ends With Great Customer Service

During our visit to Iceland, we came across a somewhat bizarre attraction that I wanted to check out as long as it wasn’t really out of the way.

As some of you may know, Bobby Fischer is probably one of the most famous chess players in the world. Continue reading Searching For Bobby Fischer in Iceland
