Boarding Pass Discounts, Soap Saves Lives, Value Destinations, Coffee in Cockpit- Bad Idea, 21 Best Burgers, Top Islands & More- The Rehash!


Another week seems to have flown by and I’ll be heading to Atlanta in a few days to attend the Freddie Aways and a couple of other related events.

I was finally able to pick a destination (and find a flight) to go to at the end of the school year. We’ll be heading to Central America. This will be Lucas’ first time to this part of the world. After he learned a couple of words in Burmese during our trip around Myanmar, we’ll now be moving on to Spanish! 🙂

Otherwise, I’m still putting together an itinerary (and making some progress with it) for our trip to Abu Dhabi in mid- August. We’ll be visiting a few countries in the region and I’m hoping to take advantage of the Club Carlson stay 2, get 1 free offer from the credit card by booking our rooms before it goes away.

What’s new for you in the world of travel?

Now it’s time to take a look back at some of this past week’s posts in a recap that I like to call The Rehash!

I’m wondering what kind of news will be announced? Something exciting is coming to

I was glad to get rid of this United credit and not have it become more of a burden. This is how I used my $300 United credit from a flight cancellation.

Did you know that leftover hotel soaps save 1,000s of lives?
