If you’ve been around any of the travel blogs over the past week or so, you may have noticed a bit of a freak out over some changes Hyatt is making to their award program. If you haven’t, surprise!

Why Oktoberfest Should Be On Your Bucket List

Guten tag! Wie gehts? This past autumn, I finally had a chance to go to Oktoberfest for the first time. No, not the one where your neighborhood bar decides to serve Becks for a week.
