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

  • So we'd booked our tickets to Cartagena, but where would we stay? Staying in a hotel in the walled city will cost you notably more, but that's where all the sights are. Bocagrande is a little outside of that, but notably cheaper, and taxis are cheap and plentiful. As I was traveling with a group of friends, the collective decision was to stay in Bocagrande, and we ended up picking the InterContinental Cartagena on the recommendation of a few friends....

  • Cartagena has long been on my to-visit list, and why not? Seaside town, historic city center, plus year-round summer-like temperatures. I convinced some girlfriends to head down with me for a long weekend and (of course) opted to fly Delta on our way over. To get to Cartagena from New York, we had a quick layover in Atlanta before making our way down to our final destination. ...

  • Most people think of the ancient temples of Bagan when they plan to visit Myanmar, but believe us when we say the country's former capital is a city that is not to be missed. Formerly known as Rangoon, the city is lined with remnants of British-ruled Burma - from the stunning colonial buildings in Downtown Yangon, to the iconic Strand Hotel, which carries many traditions (and cocktails) reminiscent of old-world elegance. If you're not here for the history, stop by for the food - Yangon offers everything from upscale dining to fantastic hole-in-the-wall tea houses. Its unique history gives the bustling city a unique look, feel, and taste that is nothing like its Southeast Asian neighbors - and this reason alone should be enough to lure you in for a visit....

  • Currently, if you have a Delta SkyMiles American Express Credit Card and you spend $25,000 on your card, the Medallion Qualifying Dollar requirement is waived for you. That means, regardless of how much or little you spend on your Delta tickets, you can potentially earn Diamond status without stepping foot on a Delta plane, thanks to MQM bonuses from a number of Delta credit cards....

  • Sandwiched between Paris and Amsterdam sits the seemingly quiet city of Brussels. Quiet is hardly right – not only is Brussels host to the European Commission and Council of the EU and European Council, there is so much going on in this city for the foodie in all of us. If the numerous chocolate specialty shops don’t win you over, maybe the locally brewed beers, or the scrumptious waffles at every corner will convince you otherwise. And if food’s not your thing, Belgium’s picturesque neighborhoods and towns are only a quick train ride away from its capital city, Brussels. ...

  • The British Airways lounge wasn’t doing it for me (maybe it was the beige aesthetics) so Brian and I decided to head over to the Diamond Lounge across the hallway....
