rehashThis past weekend, the Michael W Travels family attended the New York Times Travel Show.

We were there for a few hours, got some info about a couple of destinations, listened in on a chat and bumped into a few friends. Stay tuned for a post about the show.

In a little over two weeks, we’ll be heading off on our first international trip of 2018. Yes, we’re excited!

How has your week gone when it comes to miles, points and travel?

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

Tragic news as a woman fell overboard from the Carnival Triumph cruise ship.

Talk about a pricey meal. A group of tourists were allegedly charged $1,350 for three steaks and fish in Venice. I’ve heard of getting ripped off but didn’t they see the prices for the food in advance?

A flight had to be diverted when the pilot got sick. I wonder if this is something that happens frequently?

A rare giant lizard was found wandering around London’s Heathrow Airport.

Last week Alaska Airlines sent out an e-mail regarding Virgin Elevate points. Rather than wait, I decided to transfer my remaining Virgin balance to Alaska.

I received a nice offer to earn 30,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points for opening a checking account. I definitely plan to take advantage of this offer. Did anyone else receive this or a similar checking offer from Chase?

Win a trip from Saffron Road to the destination of your choice. This is an interesting sweepstake as the winner gets to choose from a bunch of locations rather than be told where they’re traveling to!

That’s all I’ve got.
