Arun

A lifelong traveler, and vouching to continue to do so, pushing comfort zones along the way. Always searching for the luxury deal but open for a real steal as well. The best experiences I've had have come from others offering guidance - I hope to pay it forward.

Joey

After five years of living out of a suitcase for work, I gave it up to actually live in the city my mail gets sent to - New York City. Now I spend my weekends and holidays escaping the hustle and bustle to see the world - and sharing everything I've learned along the way.

WHERE WE’VE BEEN

LATEST POSTS

  • Once we cleared customs in Buenos Aires (which took no time at all, by the way), we found ourselves in Terminal A, with a flight departing from Terminal C. Getting to our terminal was easy enough, it was a 5 minute walk outdoors through a clearly marked walkway. ...

  • Argentina had long been on my bucket list – Iguazu Falls, great culture, plus, I’d never met a glass of Malbec I didn’t like. So when we finally decided to visit, Aerolineas Argentinas (AR) came up as an obvious choice since it’s the only SkyTeam partner that flies nonstop from New York to Buenos Aires. While it doesn’t have a stellar reputation, I’m always down to fly an airline I’ve never flown before – especially if it means no layovers. ...

  • So there I was. A Tuesday afternoon, at JFK’s Terminal 7 – a terminal I haven’t flown out of in ages since most SkyTeam carriers depart out of Terminal 4 or Terminal 1. At the check-in counter, the agent let us know that we had access to the British Airways Galleries lounge....

  • It looks like for 2018, the two programs are going to continue to stay separate, and today, Marriott announced that they will continue their relationships with both JP Morgan Chase (for the Ritz Carlton and Marriott card) as well as American Express (for the SPG card). ...

  • After a relaxing long weekend in LA, we were finally headed back to New York on a red eye (which I usually hate). The traffic getting to the airport from Santa Monica was not half as terrible as I thought it would be, so we found ourselves at the airport a full 2.5 hours early with plenty of time to burn....

  • Thanks to a couple of Delta upgrade certificates I had to burn, Brian and I decided to head to Los Angeles for a long weekend getaway. I went back and forth on which property to stay at – thanks to Labor day weekend, hotel prices were unusually high. I’ve stayed in the Hollywood/West Hollywood area more times than I can count, and the W Westwood West Beverly Hills (my favorite property in LA!) was outrageously expensive. When deciding between Downtown LA and Santa Monica, Brian mentioned he’d rather stay on the west side, so we settled on the Le Meridien Delfina in Santa Monica....
