Back in August, Rene of Delta Points introduced a new, weekly series on Sundays called Fireside Chats. I think the series is a great idea and way for readers to get to know the writers behind all of the great BoardingArea blogs. Through these chats you might even find a few more blogs to add to your daily reading that you previously did not know much about.
For this week’s Fireside Chat with Rene, yours truelly will be featured on Delta Points. I had a great time chatting with Rene and found his questions to be a lot of fun to answer. I think by reading the interview you’ll get a much better idea of who I am and what my blog is all about.
Less than two weeks ago I shared some exciting news about my upcoming move over to BoardingAreaand now the time has come.
I am thrilled to be posting for the first time as a BoardingArea blogger but this isn’t the first day of my blog. In Spring 2011 I got some amazing news which would keep me grounded from traveling for about a year. My wife Kim was pregnant with our now 19 month old son Lucas Miles. I wanted to still be able to dedicate some time to the hobby that I love (travel) so Michael W Travels was created in October 2011.
In late January I wrote about a trip being planned to New Orleans. Kim and I were pretty excited to be heading there. I got to visit N.O. years back for work but didn’t get to explore too much and this would be Kim’s first time.
About a week after I wrote my post I got an invite by e-mail to a very interesting event taking place in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
The event is called BAcon or BoardingArea Conference.
Well you might ask- What is BoardingArea?
BoardingArea is a travel blog aggregator site which hosts some of the best frequent flyer blogs all in one place. I check many of the BoardingArea blogs on a daily basis to find out what’s going on in the points & miles world.
