Who Is Behind Points, Miles & Martinis
The Weekly Flyer is a part time blogger and full time business traveler. I travel the world, usually every week, to a new location accumulating points and miles along the way. As a result of accumulating so many points and miles, I redeemed an astonishing 1.7 million points and miles in 2011 to take a number of trips all over the world with Mrs. Weekly Flyer. I enjoy helping friends, family and readers travel better. Feel free to reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
