I have no clue, but wanted to mention it just in case as, at worst, it is a just good general reminder to double check your reservations. A few months ago I got in on the Icelandair/Alaska Airline deal where you could buy Icelandair points very cheaply, and then use… Read the Rest.

This post may be as scattered as my brain as I get ready to head out of town to The Freddie Awards, the Randy Peterson Executive Summit, and the Frequent Traveler University, so consider yourself warned. Packing for myself isn’t that bad, but trying to get the house and the toddler’s things ready to have mom gone for several days is far from simple! Am I the only one who… Read the Rest.
