The Morning Shave
New scanners may speed up airport security wait times, forever… – Anything to speed up the lines would be awesome. That’s why it is so important to sign up for TSA PreCheck and Global Entry. You get to skip the lines while everyone else is taking off their shoes and removing liquids & laptops from their bags.
Tourists frustrated as Eiffel Tower closes in peak season. – The views from atop the Eiffel Tower are pretty amazing. I feel for the tourists who are locked out from experiencing it for themselves. Many of these people are on once-in-a-lifetime vacations and this is their only chance. Too bad they don’t know how travel rewards can make traveling easier and more cost-effective.
10 Ways You’re Ruining Your Vacation. – I’m a big fan of #5 on this list. Meeting the locals and learning their suggestions on the best place to eat or “can’t miss” things to do is one of my favorite parts of traveling. That’s why I’ve created the We Travel There Podcast so that local experts can share hidden gems of the cities you want to travel to.
Locals Reveal the ‘Most Cringe-worthy’ Things Tourists Do While on Vacation. – I completely agree that this is the worst behavior. You have to travel with an open mind and be open to experiencing all that a new city has to offer. If you do, I promise that your vacation will more memorable than you ever thought it could be.
Saving Money On Airfare By Buying Miles Instead (Actually, Though). – Although I rarely buy miles, it can make sense in certain situations. For example, if you’re looking to book a reward flight and need just a few more to miles to redeem for the flight. But that’s not the only situation. Sometimes, you can buy all of the miles for a flight cheaper than it would be to pay cash for the flight. The main point here is to look at all of your options before booking your vacation.
