Somehow I wound up in a nostalgic mood yesterday, the kind you feel when you go through old drawers or old boxes and look through each and every item, bringing back memories of childhood or high school.
Only for me, it was reading through the old archives of this blog, which I’ve been writing for over 10 years. I was struck by the early posts, how I was trying to figure out what the blog was supposed to be, it was as much postings of weird news as it was travel deals, and the deals and offers I posted were really just the things I wanted to keep track of, this website was just a convenient bookmark or repository for links and my notes on them so I could find them more easily later.
Writing this long there’s been a great deal that hasn’t stood the test of time — from short-term offers, to suggestions on how to make the most of Northwest Worldperks, Continental Onepass, American Trans Air, and even Hooters Air.
(Looking back at old posts was a great trip down memory lane to a time when the priciest Hyatt award night was 15,000 points and a standard ‘rule-buster’ style business class ticket on United to Asutralia was 150,000 miles.. and that was last seat availability.)
There’s also been plenty — from advice to trip reports — that, and perhaps this is just my hubris but bear with me, shouldn’t be lost down the memory hole. In fact, re-reading some of these posts it seems like there’s quite a bit that could be helpful still.
So in addition to being able to enter queries in the search box of course you can now find links on the left hand side of the page with compilations of trip reports (find out what to expect in Asiana first class or on Cathay) and how to save money on airfare or what electronics I find useful to carry on travel. And there’s a top deals page that will highlight best current offers, I’ll try to keep it updated as new deals come along and others expire.
Here are the pages that I’ve added:
- Advice: Airlines and Airfare
- Advice: Credit Cards
- Advice: Frequent Flyer
- Advice: General Travel
- Advice: Hotels
- Best Credit Card Offers
- Top 10 Deals
- Trip Reports – Air
- Trip Reports – Food
- Trip Reports – Hotels
- Trip Reports – Lounges
- Trip Reports – Other
