An idiot, I mean. And I am in full-on "idiot mode" this week. I've managed to duplicate a hotel reservation in Madrid and almost botched a 40,000 point bonus from Citi because my head is just not in the game right now. I blame Summer Break. The laziness of No Alarm Sea...

I've been on countless group tours, and 99% of them have been wonderful. A giant shout-out to my friends at US Integrity Touring for the excellent work they do with performing groups of all types. If you're considering a performance tour to Europe you should definitely...

As usual, I'm late to the party, but when I go, I go big. I discovered travel hacking in late 2014. Since then, LOTS has changed in The Hobby, as some people insist on calling it. There is a big debate among points/miles collectors about sharing information in a public...
