standard Point to Point Weekly: The Land of Terrible Wifi


Let’s just say that I probably got spoiled by the first two places I stayed in Myanmar… because they both had wifi, and the wifi wasn’t half bad. Well, fast forward to the night before my trekking trip from Kalaw to Inle Lake. The wifi in Kalaw wasn’t great, but it was usable. A few people […]

My Canada Hopper was pretty awesome… but many of you, dear readers, probably would have hated it… or at least hated where I slept. Canada isn’t an overly cheap country to travel in, though with the exchange rate from the US Dollar, it is much better now than it has been for the past couple years. […]

Whoops, last week got away from me… so this week is a double edition of the Point to Point Weekly. Two weeks ago I finished up my Canada Hopper. I visited Banff National Park for a couple of days and made a 1-day stop in Saskatoon on my way home. Banff was amazing. I absolutely could […]

standard Air Canada Standby Shenanigans


Well… yesterday was quite the interesting day of air travel for me. I flew out from Calgary early in the morning, with a full day layover in Saskatoon. Yeah, kind of a strange place to stop, but it was part of my Canada Hopper. So, since I had quite a bit of time, I obviously went […]

The first stop on my Canada Hopper was Prince Edward Island. I didn’t know much about the island, and I unfortunately haven’t read any of the Anne of Green Gables books, so my starting point for what to do when I got there mainly consisted of get to the hostel and see how it goes. During the brief […]

Lobster Dinner, Prince Edward Island

Well, this week has been a full week of Canada hopping! So far I have been to Prince Edward Island, primarily Charlottetown, and Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories. So, PEI was awesome.

Wow. I could sleep for about 20 hours straight right now. Some of you may know that I’m currently working on my MBA. I’m doing it through Indiana University’s Kelley Direct Program. The vast majority of the program is completed online, which makes it a fantastic fit for me and my current lifestyle. As part of […]

standard Last Night Free With Club Carlson Still Working!


Well, last night when I got home at 11PM, I was scrambling to get a few nights booked to burn as many of the rest of my Club Carlson points as possible before the midnight deadline. Well, I got through nearly all of my points, and realized this morning that booking the bonus credit card night […]

Let me tell you about what happened this week… Flight Booking #1 The Flight Deal published a great fare to Barranquilla, Colombia.. we’re talking about $250 round trip. Now, I haven’t been to […]
