4 Ways You’re Sabotaging Your Sleep While Traveling. – I’m totally guilty of these while traveling. I eat and drink too late and usually skip workouts (even when I bring workout clothes), but I do tend to walk instead of drive whenever possible, so that helps with exercise. I’m going to order some of the sleep gummies to see if they help. What are your tricks to getting better sleep while traveling?

The lastest entry requirements for traveling to the Caribbean. – I have a few trips to the Caribbean planned for this year, so I’m watching the traveler requirements carefully. This is a reminder that reopenings are not a linear equation. Depending on how the local authorities are able to handle COVID and get people vaccinated, restrictions could be lifted quickly or the islands could lock back down at the last minute before your trip.

Delta’s opening a snazzy new Sky Club in Fort Lauderdale. – Ft Lauderdale is generally viewed as a second-class airport compared to Miami’s international airport. However, because I usually fly Southwest domestically, FLL is where I usually fly into when visiting the Miami area. It’s great news that Delta is opening up a lounge there. Hopefully, this will encourage other airlines to follow suit.

These Airlines Have the Most Legroom. – I’m not a big guy, but even I find myself cramped in Economy when flying legacy airlines. That’s another reason why I “LUV”  flying Southwest. We have a few flights scheduled on JetBlue this year as well. They have a great in-flight experience and ample legroom in Economy.

How Credit Card Rewards And Business Travel Influence The Value Of Miles. – While earning and redeeming points and miles is fun for us, we can’t forget that it is a (very profitable) business for the airlines and hotels. It helps to understand their thinking so that you can forecast what they will do in the future. This is especially true as many business travelers have scaled back over the last year… and will most likely continue to travel less at least for the next few years. All of these factors affect us as tourism travelers, whether we’re paying for our trips with rewards or with cash.
