I’m still in the middle of a trip to Europe that was made possible in large part due to miles and points, and wanted to share a little bit from it. My husband has family from Ireland and has wanted to visit “his homeland” his whole life. His parents are in their mid to late 60′s and just made their first trip to Ireland about a year ago. He was able to do it in his 30′s thanks to miles.
Don’t get me wrong, I like fancy airplane seats and nice hotel rooms as much as the next guy, but the real point of miles is to see and experience the world. Connecting with your ancestors by traveling to a far away place is the point.
Ireland may not seen like a “far away” place to some, but it is a world away for most. Miles can shrink the world and make dreams a reality, and I am thankful for their presence in our life…and yours.
