The 5 Best All-Inclusive Ski Resorts in the World. – When I think of all-inclusive resorts, my mind immediately thinks about beach properties in the Caribbean or Mexico. However, there are some amazing cold-weather options as well. I’m excited about hitting the slopes again this year and these ski resorts might be on our list of places to visit. Have you ever stayed at an all-inclusive ski resort?

Delta Air Lines Makes Big Changes to Basic Economy Fare. – Basic Economy fares just became MUCH worse on Delta. Not only will changes and cancellations be eliminated in North America starting in 2022, but these tickets will also stop earning SkyMiles or credit towards elite status. Bah Humbug!

Ghana airport will fine airlines if they bring unvaccinated passengers to the country. – Countries are starting to hold airlines accountable for transporting sick passengers to their airports. This makes sense when some countries don’t have adequate access to the vaccines and when their healthcare systems can’t handle additional sick patients. If more countries pursue this strategy, watch airlines become much more stringent on testing of passengers. Does this change affect your desire to book flights on Delta?

These 10 Five-star Hotels Around the World Cost Less Than $40 Per Night. – We’d all love to have five-star service for less than the price of a one-star motel. In these locations, your travel budget goes much further and you can experience the best luxury available. Have you ever been to one of these hotels?

Hard Rock taking over and rebranding the Mirage in $1 billion deal. – The original Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas has a cool vibe, but it’s kind of an afterthought for many travelers because of its location off the Strip. With this deal, the hotel will be relocating to the Strip and plans to make some serious changes to the Mirage that I think most visitors will like. The guitar-shaped tower with the lights is an awesome touch. I can’t wait for it to be built!
