Kim, Lucas and I got back from a really fun trip to Jamaica just in time to be home for New Year’s. The island really impressed us more than we had expected. Definitely a good thing and great way to end our year in regards to travel.

Trip planning is in full swing around here. We currently have flights booked for 4 trips in 2015 including one we booked during the best flight connection ever.

The way things are shaping up, 2015 might see us taking fewer trips but we’ll be traveling further distances than in 2014. Definitely an interesting balance…

It still appears that some people don’t listen to the warnings to BEWARE: Uber surge pricing tonight, New Year’s Eve. I will say that Uber did put out loads of warnings about surge pricing for what’s probably the busiest night of the year. It made me wonder- should riders be annoyed from surge pricing on NYE?

I’m always asked how we travel so much. My friends are often surprised when we are home. Others wonder if I am really a secret agent. Most of them don’t want to listen to the gospel of credit card churning. Here are the miles and points I earned from credit card bonuses in 2014.

This is pretty neat if you have loads of money to blow. If you’ve got $10 million to spare? Elvis Presley’s planes up for auction.
