The Morning Shave
What Will the Future of Business Travel Look Like? – While most business travelers know that in-person connections offer far more value, the cost-savings and efficiency of virtual meetings will continue to be the norm going forward. I believe that monthly in-person meetings may switch to every 3-4 months for a while. What are your thoughts?
How I booked a penthouse suite at Aruba’s newest hotel using points. – I shared my story with The Points Guy about booking a 2,100 square foot penthouse at the Radisson Blu Aruba using points this summer. The suite was huge and the resort was fresh and clean. I highly recommend booking a stay.
Disney World opening its Star Wars hotel experience on March 1. – Starting on October 28, 2021, Star Wars fans will be able to book an immersive experience that’s both a hotel and an attraction. The prices are steep, but packages include accommodations, meals, valet parking, and themed activities. Disney Vacation Club members, Disney Passholders, and Disney Visa Cardmembers are eligible for an early booking window.
How People Commit Credit Card Fraud (And Why You Accidentally Trigger Alerts). – Excellent article by my friend Gary about how your credit card behaviors can trigger alerts and make the bank think that you’re committing fraud. It’s interesting to see how some criminals are playing the “long game” with these fake credit cards/profiles to build up credibility so that they can create a bigger scam. Definitely worth a read.

I love to travel and never want to stop, even when I stop earning money from a job, my site, or freelance clients. How do you plan on funding your travel when you quit working?
