Happy Birthday To….

Today I am celebrating the first birthday of Michael W Travels. I can’t believe that it’s already been a year but it’s been a really fun and busy one!

I started my blog as a place to keep you informed about most things travel. No travel-related topic is off limits and my content varies from day to day. 
Some Topics I Cover:

  • Travel News
  • Mileage offers & bonuses
  • Travel Contests (I’ve even ran a few myself)
  • Trip Reports
  • Photos from my travels around the world 
  • More…

Some Highlights:

A few months after starting the blog, I wrote about A New Kind of Miles. I was thrilled to introduce you to my favorite kind of miles- my son Lucas Miles! Lucas Miles W. took his first flight at less than 3 months old. He has been a great travel partner and has flown over 30,000 miles already. Lucas has joined Kim and I on flights to Barbados, South Dakota and Southeast Asia (Singapore, Bali & Malaysia). Lucas turned 9 months old yesterday.

Some Posts of Interest:

I want to thank everyone for all of their support in making my first year blogging a success!

I also want to thank Kim for being an amazing wife, mom and great editor!
